      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. lost my younger brother...

    Blue 2017, first of all I want to give my condolences.I went through what you are going through. The grief was overwhelming. I will be honest, I'm still hurting bad. Your loss is very recent. It took me months to start having decent days, where I could think of Brian without feeling sad and guilty. I was blinded to how bad other family members were hurt by Brian's loss. I couldn't see past my own grief. Be supportive to other family members. Several of my friends lost their siblings. I go to them for support, too. I know you hurt bad. It's going to be a while to feel better. I still have moments of grief and rage.
  2. lost my younger brother...

    Hello. I’m new to this group. My brother died 19 months ago from an overdose of fentanyl and Valium. He had a drug problem since his teens. He was 39 when he died. Worse, he died the day after my son was born. He wanted to meet my son, but my wife was very sick and wasn’t up to having visitors.I asked him to come up the next day. The next morning on my way up to see my wife and son I got the phone call that he died.I blamed myself for a long time, thinking it would have been different if he came up with his family. I think my father blames me too. I haven’t heard from him for a long time. My brother’s death haunts me, and the hurt never goes away. As much as my wife and kids help and the support I have received, it still hurts so badly. I hope to one day be able to look back and smile at the times we shared, I still haven’t gotten there. It feels like I’m going to suffer the rest of my life, and I can’t take it. Thank you for your time.
