      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. Keeping Holidays Alive

    Dear Swoopie, Everyone grives differently. Because everyone is different. There is no wrong or right way. The void will always be there and as painful. But you’ll find a way to build your life around the pain. Perhaps I can’t help you. But be assured, you’re not alone.
  2. I Lost my mother

    So sorry about your loss. While it doesn’t help make the loss any less painful, you must be grateful that she’s not suffering any more. Your family is your biggest strength and you theirs.
  3. My first Xmas without my father. He passed away exactly three weeks before Xmas. It hurts. A lot. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. That’s the only luxury we have- to grieve the way we want to. The only advise I’ve been given is to not hurt myself and neglect own health.
  4. Missing my Dad

    @Swoopie, well put and so true. It’s not a group anyone wishes to be in. But nothing binds people closer than grief. It’s definitely an emotion that brings out the best in people and probably the most sincere emotion.
  5. Missing my Dad

    Dear Swoopie and Reader, Thank You for your kind words. I suppose we can never recover. Ever. We just adapt. The pain and loss is real and doesn’t diminish. It just manifests itself in different ways. Hugs.
  6. My dad underwent surgery on Nov 27. Everything seemed to be going well with the recovery. But then things took a very bad turn on Dec 3rd. He passed away on Dec 4th. Lost my mom many years ago and I just become so much closer to my father. He was my strength. Just his presence, being able to talk to him was the comfort I needed. I think I’m living in denial. Hallucinating that he’s going to be back in day or two. Imagining that he will just call me later today. I’m reliving memories in 3D. I’m afraid to cry, because that will make me realize that the loss is real.
