According to many experts exercise truly can help relieve the symptoms of depression, a common issue during the grief process. In addition to the physical benefits already known about exercise, including disease prevention, exercise is known to release chemicals in your brain that help lift your mood and make you feel better. If you are worried “exercise” means you have to start lifting weights, jogging or even strenuous calisthenics, don’t be. Exercise to lift your spirits can be anything from a short walk in a beautiful park to simply puttering around the house talking to your plants. To get started exercising, just get out of bed or off the couch and start moving. Are you thinking “it’s not that simple because I am so depressed?” Try some positive self-talk each morning, such as “Today, I am going to have a good day,” or “I’m going to get out of bed and move around today because I care about me.” It really does work.

Technical Tip: Chat room

Many of our members at, email us asking how they can get other members to join them in the chat room. We have members from all over the world who visit the chat area at varying times each day.

If you want to chat with other members, check the chat room periodically, or post a message inviting people to chat. Be sure and include your time zone when you give a time. The favorite times for most people are late in the evening and early in the morning. So, if you’d like to chat on Monday evenings and you live in the eastern part of the U.S., remember to put “10 p.m. EST.”

The chat rooms are great ways to meet other members and get mutual support and encouragement. They are open to all members; so, please feel free to take advantage of them.


To make improvements and to help support the forum, we are asking you to help financially. For the last 17 years, we haven’t asked for any assistance. We do not want to make a subscription based area where only those who pay can post, nor do we want to plaster big corporation names in advertising on the forums. Instead, we would rather be a member-supported community. If you can help--whether it's $1 a month or $20--we would appreciate your support. you can find the information to sign up on the forums. 


Thank you so much for your continued support,


The Team. 


We’d like to offer our deepest sympathy and warmest welcome to our newest members. You have come to the right place. There are others here at who have experienced similar losses. They will be able to share, encourage and support you. We will be here for you.
