I would also like too, so that I can learn how to respond and how NOT to respond. But I totally understand if you want to keep it to only those that have experienced grief personally. I do not think at this point that I would "talk" much, but more just to learn. Soo it is up to you all if I am left in or not.
Edited to add: I didn't see Christy's note in the other thread that it is open to those exerpriencing grief and those that have experienced it in the past. So if I am blocked, I understand.

I would like for someone to be very blunt and tell us how not to respond and what hurts, ect. So often I don't know WHAT to say so I blurt something dumb out or don't say anything. So.......whatever you think about me being in....

Because of the very raw nature of the pain of grief, it would be easier for those going through this pain to not have listeners. They will later start a thread for the rest of us to read that gives advice for what to do/not to do. One of you whoul would like to understand, could feel free to start topics like that, and ask other related questions. That could be a part of discussion and debate or personal growth. Thanks for understanding.

Oh, and some of you may already be in, but will be taken back out. Audrey and I had been discussing the ins and outs of this. Shannon is doing the legwork.



Sign up if you have personally experienced grief--child, sister, parent, friend, niece, grandchild, etc.

Christy, that's a great idea. I'd feel the same way if I was feeling raw with grief.

What about if we've experienced it, but it is in the past and it's not raw anymore? I've had 3 miscarriages over the last 9 years, the last one being 2 yrs ago. Time heals. I remember the experiences and feelings as if they were yesterday, yet I don't feel the sharp pain anymore. So, I'll let it up to you whether or not to let me be in.

I'd like to be in this for a little while, maybe in a month or so you can take me back out. just loosing my nephew last weekend leaves me w/ some feelings to process, altho I feel like I haven't felt grief as raw as someone who has lost a child of their own.

I think the main issue is that you understand what they're experiencing, even if you're not right there by now. They need someone to reassure them that sometime the pain won't dominate their days.
