      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. My mom died 5 months ago and I am really struggling. I have always lived with my mom and when I bought my house, she stayed with me. I went from a child living at home to an adult eventually who needed to take care of mom. I have no children or husband, it was just us (I do have siblings that are both married with kids and lives) and over the last several year I was her caregiver, especially this last year. Even had a full handicap bathroom installed in my living room with intention to have her move her bedroom downstairs into the living room. The bathroom was finished the day before she went into the hospital and she died 4 days later. She never used it. Today is January 1 and I have been off a week for the holiday break and go back to work tomorrow. I am dreading it, because I know people will expect me to be back to my old self, which I don't think will ever happen. For the last month some people would say "I look better" I don't even know how to react to this comment. It's like they think I had the flu or something and now I am better. Meanwhile, I feel horrible, no motivation and I feel very disconnected to daily living. So it is kind of confusing when they say I look better and yet I feel terrible. The latest comment was "well just get through the holidays and then its a New Year." Um, yes but that hasn't changed a thing for me. Also, I am not sure I want to go back to the person I was and "feel good" is that weird. I am almost afraid to lose the raw feeling I have now. I don't want to get use to her not being here. Okay, sorry, I am all over the place with my thoughts. Just needed to share. thanks
