This Forum has been a blessing for me. I thank each and every one of you for the positive, loving words you gave me after I lost Diego last month. I really don't know if I could've gotten through the last month without all of you.

I need some help finding a Forum that deals with day-to-day issues that are not grief-related. I stumbled upon one, FeelingKindaBlue.org, but it has turned out to be the Sahara (it seems) for everyone who has tried using it to connect. In particular, I am battling issues in a relationship and really need someone to talk to...

I’m sorry I don’t have any advice of websites based on that subject. I’m sorry you are going through something in Addition to the loss of Diego.

Hi Leathur,

I'm so sorry to hear that. It make it so, so much tougher when a member here is not only saddened for the loss of a beloved pet, but when a relationship is going away too. So, so unfortunate.

I would recommend trying Reddit. There are many community threads over there dealing with all kinds of relationship issues and some very active and compassionate members, like here.

I hope you continue to heal and things go better for you soon.

Hugs,
James

Leathur - I'm sorry you're going through so much turmoil, on top of mourning your Diego. All of it can feel quite overwhelming. Even though you don't specify the nature of your personal issues (and don't expect you to), grief is absolutely an aspect of relationships and personal challenges.

With that in mind, if you're interested, I've listed what I feel to be some very reliable resources for you to peruse. They all fundamentally deal with self-love and acceptance, and openly addressing past traumas (especially from childhood).

I think it's great that you've openly asked for suggestions; it's not an easy thing to do, and your willingness to do so bodes well for you. Sending you warm regards, and all the best.

All of the links typically have both youtube channels as well as web sites for reading material.

Leather - I've taken the liberty of sending you one last recommendation for a link that I'd forgotten about:

https://crappychildhoodfairy.com/videos/

I've always been interested in the influence of early childhood experiences on behaviour later in life. If you find useful nuggets to extract from her site, all the better.

Cheers.
