I understand that dealing with grief makes other people uncomfortable. They don't know what to say or do.  Sometimes they just disappear.  After your loss did it surprise you who was "there" for you…Continue

Welcome to our community.... I hope we can keep you company on your journey ahead. Please look around a bit and read this basic introduction to the site. You can find more information about how the community works under "Help!" in the navigation bar, and we'll send you a few newsletters with tips and ideas in the coming weeks. If you need a little more help, go to the Home page and look in the right hand column to see the link to a "Help Desk" form.
We all use the site differently, but we hope you feel comfortable sharing among us in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Big hug!

I'm so sorry for your loss Beth, but I'm glad you've joined us on this healing journey. I wish none of us ever needed a place like this, but now that we do it's so much better to travel with friends at our sides. You will find great comfort and understanding here, you will also make many new friends along the way. I joined 9 months ago and would still be lost without everyone here.This is a safe environment to discuss anything you need, and you will never be judged. I know I have found many topics that my friends and family just don't understand or don't want to discuss. But here everyone is so very open and understanding it will put you at ease. Welcome and please join in when your ready.
