      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

Helpful Websites and/or Books

Recommended Posts

I was thinking earlier today that I wanted to start a conversation on here about websites and/or  blogs that anyone else has found helpful?  I use my personal blog as kind of a journal for myself, and hope that other grieving mama's find it helpful in some way, does anyone else have a blog?  If not I highly recommend starting one, it's a great way to share your story and is really a great outlet for when your mind gets going at warp speed and you just need to let it out.  I've also found other websites, this one included that have been helpful.  Another one is stillstandingmag.com  and there's also a group on Facebook for bereaved mothers  (and also named "Bereaved Mothers.")  A couple other Facebook pages that I spend a large chunk of time on are "Grief the Unspoken" (https://www.facebook.com/grieftheunspoken) and "Angie Cartwright," (https://www.facebook.com/AngieCartwrightGrief) Angie is actually amazing if you read her posts and her blog, very insightful, she's holding a live event in December called "Freedom to Grieve.: I highly recommend her page also.  Does anyone else have any websites or books that they have found helpful?  Oh, and speaking of books, I read Heaven Is For Real the day after Khyri's funeral and it is honestly the only thing that got me through the few days right after the funeral, an amazing read, renewed the faith in God that I thought I had completely lost...I still struggle with it some days, since I still don't have answers and I don't understand why my baby was taken from me, but that book brought me back from giving up on God completely.

Khyris's mommy, I am sorry for the loss of your little girl. I had read through your blog the other day...such feelings you expressed on it, so many have felt those same feelings and it is a struggle...

 

My thread Grief Healing My Journey may be of interest, it is a collection of what I have found to be the most helpful, you may like the posting at the end on the cardiologists:

I too found comfort in Colton Burpos story, sometimes the greatest truths are best told by children...You may like this book by Diane Komp, it is an older book but she is a doctor for children

Many of us post in the Loss of an Adult Child thread, it is a very active thread with some wonderful moms and dads who have helped me tremendously since the loss of my son, Jesse. (Age of the child does not matter, everyone is welcome).

Wishing you gentleness in the days ahead.

I've been scouring the web for grief therapists that were more in alignment with my way of grieving. No true order of stages, kind of not knowing what I was going to get from day to day. I did find one that I like with a great blog, http://www.edynathan.com . She started being a grief therapist after the loss of a loved one in college so she understands.
