      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. Happy??? Birthday !!!!

    What a lovely way to honour your beautiful daughter. Love truly does live on, as you will always hold her in your heart as you celebrate her special life.
  2. loss of daughter to drug overdose

    Janice, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet daughter. It sounds like you did everything you could do to try to help -- addiction can have such a powerful hold that it is so hard to break free... I am so sorry for the heartache that you and your family must be experiencing. Sending my love during this difficult time, stay strong.
  3. What an absolutely beautiful poem - her way of letting you know that she hears you speaking to her. Thanks for sharing this special poem so that others might find comfort in it as well. Sending love
  4. Two years and i still miss my dad

    Abassra, I am so sorry about the loss of your father. Losing a parent at such a young age is absolutely devastating and I can only imagine what you, your younger sister and your mother have been going through since his passing and now you taking on the role of the man of the house. When I was 14, my mom had a cardiac episode and needed to be resuscitated, luckily she came back but I completely understand how traumatic that experience is. It still haunts me today. Guilt is a hard thing to shake, but you need to know that your father loved you for WHO YOU ARE, not for what the "idealic perfect son" would have been. Do not beat yourself up about not being the "perfect son" at the age of 20. NO ONE is perfect and we make tons of mistakes in life, especially in our teens and early 20s. It is how we learn from these mistakes and how we make changes moving forward to better ourselves is what counts. Do not dwell on not being the the perfect son to your father, make a point to strive to be the best person you can be through the rest of your life to make him proud and to honour his legacy as he lives on in you. I am sending you love and strength in your journey through grief. Stay strong. Courtney
  5. Unexpected and sudden loss of my mom

    Missingmomala, I am so sorry to hear about the sudden loss of your dear mom. I can only imagine the confusion, frustration and pain that you and your family must be feeling right now. It sounds like you and your mom had a very close and beautiful relationship and I'm sure she was so grateful to have you there with her when this was all happening. Nothing I can say can take away the pain that you are feeling but just know that with each passing day, the pain gets a little more manageable and always remember that she truly does live on in your heart and those treasured memories you have of her. I am sending you love, strength and my sincerest condolences during this difficult time of grief.
  6. Our angel Sebastian

    Hi Sebastian'smommy1 I just came across your story and I am so unbelievably sorry to hear about not only the loss of your dear son but the way that you were treated by your doctors. However, I am so happy to hear that you pulled through and are still with us today. You definitely have an angel up there watching over you. I am also happy to hear that you and your husband are moving forward with trying to have another child - either through adoption or if you end up being able to conceive. I wish you nothing but the best! Thank you so much for sharing your story and that photo of your son, Sebastian, he is beautiful and perhaps you sharing your story, you might help save another baby and their mom in the future.
  7. Grieving brother, only sibling, best friend

    Amy, I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your dear brother. It is so special that you got to spend those last 7 months with your brother and the conversations you shared are something you can treasure for the rest of your life. Do not feel guilty about the things you told him you could do but might not be able to. All you can do is your very best and I am sure that he would be so grateful for that. In terms of what to do for his birthday and Mother's Day, I definitely agree with ModKonnie's advice. Just make sure to only do as much as you and your family can handle. Since the loss is so fresh, you might find his birthday especially emotional this year. Have a conversation with your family about what they would like to do, just make sure not to push yourself more than you and your family are comfortable with. Maybe have your family get together for a nice dinner and take turns sharing happy or funny memories you had with your brother. You can also light a candle in his memory. This Mother's Day will most likely be very emotional for your mom, a phone call from you to let her know how much you love her and are thinking about her would be very special. If you live close by, maybe take her out for a nice lunch, I'm sure just being with you would make the day easier. I hope some of these suggestions helped but in the end you know what will be best for you and your family in terms of ways to remember your beloved brother on those special days. I am sending you strength and love during your grieving and healing process.
  8. I don't think I can keep on anymore

    Dear Staci, I just want to start by saying that I am incredibly sorry for the loss of your husband, your partner in life and your very best friend. I know that things might seem absolutely dark and hopeless right now but I promise you...things will get better. Time will never completely heal the pain of the loss of your beloved husband, that loss will stay with you every day, but the way that you are able to manage that pain will get better with time. Those beautiful kids, they are the reason to keep going, to keep trying your best every single day because they are depending on you. Even though not all of them are not in your care at the moment, you are still their mom and they need you, now more than ever. When things seem most dark, think of them, and the love you have for them will push you along, it will get better. Sending you strength and love.
  9. Loss of a parent - daily thread

    Dear Nancy, I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your dear mother. A mother's love is such a special and unique kind of love that is impossible to replace. But I really do believe that the people we love never truly leave us, your mother lives on in you whether it be through the lessons she has taught you throughout your life or the little ways you honour or remember her each day. The pain you must be feeling right now is unimaginable for those who have never suffered such a loss and the emotions can be extremely difficult to cope with, especially if you don't have an outlet to express the way that you are feeling. Please know always that there are people here who are genuinely here to listen and help each other through the grieving process. You are not alone. Sending you strength and love during your time of grief and I am glad you are using this incredible forum as an outlet for expression. Your mother sounds like she was an extraordinary woman and just remember that she lives on in you. Always.
