      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. I feel it may help new members of our grief family if 'we' shared the things that we found helpful throughout the first few tortuous months of grief. Nearly all of the things I've listed still apply 20 months into my grief. Constant reminder to self - one hour, or one day at a time. Quotes placed in various areas of my home. Chatting with friends on phone throughout my toughest hours each day. Sitting/laying on deck at night looking up at the stars & talking with my late hubby. Grief counselling. Informed friends and neighbours that if drapes still closed, I wasn't yet ready for visitors. Talking with GP and nurses. Introduction to hypnotherapy by qualified psychologist/hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy now via youtube for anxiety and sleep. Subscribed to Netflix. Grazed on easy healthy foods throughout the day, and eat chocolate and crisps at night. Took the only thing in my home that initially brought me any comfort - my bedroom, and made it even more comforting and warmer with new bed linen and low lighting. Bought ipad & bluetooth box thingee and headphones so I could do what I needed to from my only place of comfort. Low lighting in lounge. Very long showers. Said stuff the power bill, and turned up the heat so I wasn't both cold and miserable. Set up auto payments for bills. Have various friends come for a couple of nights every now'n again. I love having visitors stay, but two nights at a time seems to be all I can cope with at present. Had to let go of the people in my life who were making my grief more difficult to bear. Nurturing new friendships.
  2. Turning Grief into Grace

    I've lost three family members within the past year and never prepared myself to fall into this abyss. After participating in local bereavement groups, a friend told me about a cruise in November that is just for those who lost loved ones and I signed on. It's called "turning grief into grace" and I am praying this will help me get beyond this pain and be able to function. It's strange, I know, combining a cruise with grief workshops, but at this point I'll try anything. Edy Nathan is the grief expert. I've seen her on television on A & E.
