Welcome to the Grief and Loss Forum. The purpose of this forum is to provide a safe, comforting space to discuss grief, trauma and loss that affects our lives. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, we will not host debate or criticism in this forum. Disagreement should be set aside out of respect for the diversity and varying interpretations and beliefs that we hold as a community. We do not wish to host gossip, speculation or rumor. Fundraising is not hosted, no matter how worthy the cause.
We ask that members post to honor their beloved pets in the Pets subforum
so we can better organize discussion. This request serves to help connect grieving pet-owners who have been through similar experiences and is not intended to diminish a pet's importance. Threads about pet loss will be moved from this forum with a redirect to Pets. Thanks for your understanding!
Please make sure your posting is in accordance with the MDC User Agreement.
