      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

So Shocking

Recommended Posts

I posted this in another forum about my 22 year old who collapsed and did not come back. It was sudden and a cardiac event of unknown cause. I have been irritable, snappish and nasty at times, sullen and quiet at others or a chatty Cathy. My wife and I have been arguing and we have both been hyper-sensitive. We are both battling our own problems, she with her brittle diabetes and me with depression disorder and Seasonal Affective Disorder. This was a blow to both of us and worse it happened during the holidays. My work has suffered (I am a freelance writer), my sleep has been horrible and it is taking a toll on our marriage. Our son was not a partier, took care of himself and a kind, sweet soul and he was supposed to marry his fiancee in September. We have 4 other adult kids and one of his sisters had her first baby in October. We are a Catholic family and yet I am not finding peace or solace in my faith. I am supposed to place my faith in Our Lord, yet I am feeling more and more like he let us down, so how can I do that? Maybe it is too soon and the feelings are too raw. Any help is greatly appreciated.

From what you said, I agree. I know it doesn't take away the hurt. I am with you as well. I am glad I found this site and you Luanne. Just call me Lou. (Really, that is my first name!)

Hi Luanne: I am still having a bit of rough time navigating through this site. Is there a way I can open it such that it defaults to my messages from my posts, etc? Please advise. We are having a rainy, miserable night here in New Jersey. YUCK!
