  • you can start one. But there is one there. I have lost two children and I feel your pain. There is a very active group and online discussions daily through compassionate friends. There is also a group called griefsupport.proboards. I found these very helpful. Please feel free to PM me.

  • Hi MaryannC1045,

    Click on 'Groups' tab.
    On the next page, scroll down and click the 'Create a Group' button located on the right side.
    Choose the category that best describes your group: Personal, Common Ground, or Local.
    Enter your group name.
    Upload your group's picture (optional).
    Describe your group in the Short and Long Description boxes.
    Add tags (keywords) for your group.
    Enter a URL for your group's homepage.
    Click 'Next'.
    The next page will allow you to edit your privacy settings.
    Once you are done choosing your privacy settings, click 'Continue'.

    Head over to the Groups Resource Center. Owners and Admins of some of CafeMom's largest and most active groups are in the GRC and they have tons of information to share with new group owners.

  • I hope you find the support you need. What an unimaginable pain. A friend of mine just lost her son, and I can't imagine going through that. Hugs mama.
