      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. Hello all, im sure some of us are all familiarized with that quote from a family member "Only time will heal" or "This is the worst part, it only gets better from here" does anyone else think that's kind of a lie? I mean for those who have lost do we ever really fully recover? It's been 4 years since my mothers demise and it's been the hardest 4 years of my life let me tell you. It was the beginning of my freshman year of high school when I came home and found my mother dead. I think seeing her like that will taunt me for the rest of my life unfortunately. I look back, and I remember how my sisters where informed about the tragic news, it was from the doctor himself and they where devastated and shocked just like everyone else. But me, I felt like I got the worst of it all. I was 14 years old just walking home from the bus stop and then bam my life changed forever, had my school pictures in one hand and swim team papers in the other.. I had no idea what to do or what was going on when I found my mom dead and no one else saw her like this but me. Why did I have to see her in that kind of state? I think me and my sisters all have a different point of view of my mothers death but in all honesty I think I got the worst hand of it. To this day my mothers death has effected me long term and will still continue to. It effected me through high school, through relationships, even my own morals.. I just went down hill when my mom died.. I mean down a really steep hill and I'm trying everything right now to fight back and make something of myself but it's hard and it's stressful and can't help but to feel lost and I'm not good at reaching out to people.
