What we're about
I just lost my mother after caring for her for 6 1/2 years. It has put such a void in my life that I realize how much I need to talk about/meet others who are in the same state. I'm not a clinician (in fact, I'm an IT professional) so I definitely don't have all the answers. What I realize from other stages in my life is that you just need other people to talk to and be an ear to someone who needs to discuss their feelings. I've looked for grief support groups but they seem to be sponsored by hospitals and/or hospice organizations and may meet once a month. I cannot put my grief on hold until a monthly meeting. So, I've decided to be the facilitator of this meetup. Join me. There is nothing better than getting out of your own pain and helping someone else.
