  • Grief & Loss
    Grief is a natural response to loss. It can be felt in many ways. Grief’s impact can be emotional, social, spiritual, physical and financial. It is as individual as the person you loved and lost. Grieving while living away from family and friends can be especially difficult. This is a place where you can share your thoughts, and get ideas on how to cope. It is here for you to get support and validation.

  • Distance Caregiving
    Distance caregiving is the experience of providing support to an ill loved one who is geographically distant from the caregiver. Research shows that there were more than seven million Americans who were distance caregivers in 1997. That number is growing. This discussion group offers you a means of finding emotional support, validation and coping strategies.

  • Anticipatory Grief
    Many of us are aware that grief is a normal part of every loss we experience, but does grief only occur after the loss? Anticipatory grief is the form of grief that occurs when one is confronted with a chronic or life threatening illness or when one anticipates the death of a loved one (or oneself). Anticipatory grief does not substitute, or necessarily lessen, grief that occurs after the death. It is not simply grief pushed ahead in time. Please utilize this discussion group to share your thoughts and feelings.

  • For Adolescents: Death of a Friend
    When tragedy strikes and a young person dies, there is empathy for the deceased’s parents and extended family. Friends of the deceased are often forgotten mourners, yet children and teens are greatly impacted by the death as well. I have heard teens share feelings of deep sadness, anger and guilt or become fearful and question their own mortality. Some may feel lonely or isolated from their surviving peers. Others may have a difficult time understanding why their friends are not grieving in the same way. Please use this forum to express your thoughts, feelings and what has worked for you when you have experienced the death of a friend.

  • Pregnancy Loss
    Pregnancy loss generally includes miscarriage, stillbirth, and neo-natal (death occurring in the first 28 days of life) death. Society is starting to understand the impact of grief on an individual, but, when it comes to pregnancy loss, if the loss is even acknowledged, it is often minimized. Pregnancy loss is a real loss! Those who have experienced a pregnancy loss experience the same symptoms and intensity of grief as any other type of loss. In addition, there are some unique grief issues that accompany pregnancy loss which are not present with other types of deaths. Concerns range from subsequent pregnancies to relationship issues. These and many other issues can complicate one’s grief journey. If you or someone you care about has experienced a pregnancy loss, use this discussion group to express your feelings, find support, and learn more about this subject.
