My mom


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I'm new here and I'm not really sure what to do or say.  But my mom is anorexic and she has been for many years.  Each year she gets worse and worse and for the past few years she's been extremely bad. Im in college and I just went home for spring break and now shes worse than she's ever been before.  It's become a real reality that she is dying.  She's refusing to go to the hospital and I dont know what to do.  She weighs about 65lbs and its dropping.  Im just so lost and alone and for some reason I have a feeling that I know it's a reality now and that she really is dying.  I know people shouldnt live on feelings but I cant help it (and the pure evidence of reality isnt much better).  I wish I could make things better and take away her pain and make her better and happy again.  I always thought that our love as a family, my love as a child, and the love of my sisters would make her better one day and would make her want to change.  But it's not enough.  And now I'm alone and I cant even talk to her about it because shell yell at me. I saw something she wrote and she thinks she dying too.  I also talked to my dad and he said the same thing.  I wish I could do something and I wish she didnt have to die.  I keep having nightmares about her death and I cant concentrate on anything anymore, all I can think about is her.  Im 18 she cant die yet.....


advise anyone..and sorry I know it's not the typical illness that you guys talk about on here I just found this and I dont know where else to go....

Sorry to hear that dragonfly and all you can do is hope and pray hard; and so far that has worked with my mother having a brain tumor and was given a 50/50 chance but has been fighting it really well for 18 months now, and she and my whole family are big believers in prayer and inner strength.

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields

- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.

- Facebook and Twitter Integration

- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"

- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.

- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board

- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it.

- Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible.

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other.

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
