I’m so encouraged by the response I received from my most recent post. Sooooo many emails and a couple of public responses. I thank all of you for your kind words. It meant a lot to me to hear, not only your feedback, but your words of support for me personally. I really am okay…improving every day and feeling so much better.
The one constant was that everyone agreed that making the Facebook page a closed group would be beneficial so that’s what I’m going to do. I’m inviting all of you who follow Translating Grief on WordPress only or via email to head over to my Facebook page and give it a like. In about a week, I’ll change the status to a closed group. It’s my understanding that those who have already liked the page will stay in the group. Anyone after that will need to be approved by the administrators (who is only me at this time!).
I’m really hoping that the closed group will provide a place for those who are hurting to be open and honest, to give support, to seek support, to have lively, respectful discussions about topics related to grief and to be a go-to resource for supports on the web and in the community.
