Welcome to The Light Beyond

Please take a minute to read this post first, as it provides the basic ground rules for the use of our forums...

Who are we? We are a group of people who are sadly all too well acquainted with grief and loss; the Light Beyond forums and website have grown out of our own experiences. However, we are not professionals in this field and cannot offer medical, legal or psychological advice. Some of the people posting on these forums may be qualified to provide such advice, but we cannot accept any liability should you follow (or fail to follow) their advice.

These are just a few reminders in case anybody has any questions about our community:
  • Spam will not be tolerated and will be deleted. Please help us by reporting posts (using the red and white triangular icon above the post) you think are spam and should be deleted. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Verbal abuse and hateful posts directed to other forum members will not be tolerated and will be deleted, with no questions asked and no exceptions. Please help us by reporting posts (using the red and white triangular icon above the post) you think are abusive and/or hateful. Our decision is final in these matters.
This is a community of people who come here to help and support others and to learn from others. Our motto is 'Kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.' This is a tolerant, caring community; please help us by being respectful, constructive and kind in your posts.

If you experience any problems using the forums, please contact the administrator or one of the moderators and they will do their best to help.

General Rules
  • While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks or purposeless inflammatory posts. Our decision is final in these matters.
  • Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) nonsense posts, or the such.
  • Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed.
  • Advertising, spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members.
  • We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature or violate The Light Beyond community standards. The Light Beyond team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards.
  • Each member is allowed one login account. Registering with multiple accounts is not allowed.
  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice.
While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • You cannot post any affiliate or referral links, or post anything asking for a referral. Such posts will be subject to removal.
  • You cannot post advertisements.
  • We also reserve the right to ban anyone who wilfully violates the forum rules, as access to our forums is a privilege and not a right.
    Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted.
Advertising services and solicitation

We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise or solicit any products, services, funds or donations. We can ban individual users from doing so if necessary.

Links in signatures

Links in signatures must follow these guidelines:
  • Linking to a commercial product/service is fine, provided it is not a product or service that competes with a product or service offered by The Light Beyond and it is not an affiliate link.
  • Promotional text for a commercial product or service is OK, provided there are no price(s) of product(s) or service(s) listed.
  • A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain product(s) and/or service(s) is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate The Light Beyond community standards. The Light Beyond team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards (examples include sites about drugs and/or s*x).
  • Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.
Signature size limits

All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, and you can't have both text and images:
  • For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 90 characters per line.
  • Font sizes above 2 are not allowed (blank lines count as lines).

Default Welcome Dee

Dee58

I wanted to welcome you to the forum...

Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your dear Mom..

Dee you have take a great step of many in coming here to the forum..

You have entered into a realm of Kindred Spirits... where you will find understanding... compassion. empathy... a place where you can read, write, yell, scream , vent and never be judged for it..


One of the best things you can do for yourself right now is keep talking.. Coming here and expressing your pain and what you are currently going through to those who truly understand and can relate to your pain is a small part of the healing process.. Talking about painful feelings helps release some of that pain bit by bit.. So you are heading in the right direction..


Stop in anytime ... there is always someone on line 24/7 that you can correspond with... posts are usually respnded to pretty quickly here..


But please above all else.. please know you are not alone here....


I wish you peace in the raging pain of your loss and clarity of thought in the morass of confusion that follows..

I wish you peace and a level path on your journey...

Default My beautiful mum

Thank you so much for all your replies. So nice to know that I am not alone, although I quite often feel it. I just really dont know where to turn, so glad I found this forum. I lost my most beloved dog last year, I was (and still am) absolutely devastated over losing her, but my mum really really helped me, and just as I was beginning to start life again, I lose my precious mum. We had such a special bond and I really cant imagine life without her, when I do eventually get to sleep (usually about 2 hours a night), then I wake up and think oh no, just another day of torture.

How on earth do I carry on?? I just dont know.
