      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. Grief

    I agree, with the searching. I feel like I need to do something with my experience- losing my sister, and my dad... I feel the need to use it to help other people somehow, just haven’t figured out how exactly. Maybe we’ll always be searching for someway to attempt to fill this giant hole in our lives where our siblings belong. I agree w the previous post though, it’s like a RollerCoaster- when you’re down- just know you’ll be going back up soon. Hang in there!
  2. My brother dief

    It’ll get a little bit easier as time goes on, my sister died 10 years ago. It still hurts but after a while you start to feel like you can breathe again... still hurts, just not as overwhelming like it is at first. Try to keep busy, I found, and still find that I think more about her, the past, what it would be like now if she were still here when I’m driving for a long time to have a lot of time to think- my mind goes to her. Try to stay busy, try to reach out to other people who’ve lost a sibling, they’re the only ones that really understand... there are lots of fb groups, it’s sad to read through the posts, but also comforting to know that we are not alone. *Hugs*
  3. Ten Years Later it Still Hurts

    Hey, my sister, Megan, died 10 years ago- she was 18, I was 22. I understand how it’s still really hard, even after all this time. It sorta feels like it just happened... crazy that it’s been 10 years without her. It’s like a totally different life we have to get use to. I try to tell myself that I need to try, for her, because she can’t- do find some joy, to keep going without her. I think talking about her and talking to people who understand is helpful, helps me keep her memory alive... helps me find something good out of something so shitty. You just have to take it one day at a time- and you are not alone, there are lots of us- in this club that we never wanted to be in, together. There are lots of fb groups where people talk about missing their siblings- always reach out when you need to talk, I promise there are others out there wanting to talk as well. Plus, your brother is still with you too. I swear my sister sends me little signs when I need it most- I see her exact car when I’m having “one of those days” or I hear a Megan song, in the radio, a song that I hadn’t heard on the radio since 2007. I really do think they are signs saying she’s still here for me. Maybe you have things happen like that too? Things will get better, just gotta keep trying. I’m sure your brother would want you to keep trying. If you need someone to talk to, I don’t mind giving out my email. Take care and know you’re not alone!
