Death of spouse or true love...

Welcome to our "Lost Spouse/ True Love" page. Few losses can be as heart-rending as losing your spouse or true love to a death. How will you ever go on without your life partner? You are sure to miss the closeness and warmth, the secrets and decision-making you both shared. It will not be easy, but you can learn to survive and come back to life without him or her at your side.

May you begin to heal by telling others about the loss of your own beloved partner, and also find some comfort in similar stories posted by other bereaved men and women.

Ready to tell your story?  It's very easy. Just click in and start writing below:


CHANGE IS COMING...
     To Recover-From-Grief.com.


We are going to transition soon from these "Yourspace" blog pages to a true Forum. You will have the ability to not only post about your loss and leave comments on other's posts; the new improved Forum will also include chat rooms and private messaging!

A chat room is where multiple guests can all discuss or comment on the same subject, in real-time! (Kinda like an online written "conference call").

Private messaging will be great for those of you who have requested contact information about other guests (which we were not allowed to give out). If you feel a "connection" to someone else in the forum, you can send private messages back and forth, if both of you agree to it.

The new improved "participation" section of this website will be called The Grief Club. Not only will you have access to the bright new Grief Forum, membership in the Club will bring you access to a bi-monthly grief e-zine/newsletter ("Just Breathe"), great discounts on other grief resources, and of course the popular Pearls from the Forums.

Why did we do this?

The Yourspace pages are always very active; however, it is also a prime target for multiple spammers and "spellcasters" from around the globe. And boy are they sneaky! They make posts that appear normal, but somewhere lower in the post, they would slip in their spammy messages. We spend literally hours each day carefully combing through every post to weed them out.

A sign-in Forum should eliminate the problem. We also believe it will be a better experience for YOU in many ways.

So watch for The Grief Club, coming soon. There will be no cost for lifetime membership initially, so we encourage you to sign up as soon as membership opens up.
