Has This Site Helped You?

I hope this site has brought you some comfort at this devastating time. It may (or may not) surprise you to learn that I get an awful of lot of rubbish hurled at me for running this site. I'm not sure why, because I've spent my whole life basically trying to help people, in all sorts of small ways, but basically to prevent them from ever feeling like I have had to throughout my life. I'm not sure why that makes me unpopular with certain people, or why it makes me a potential target, but it does.

Not that that matters to me, you understand. I think when terrible things happen to you in life you can choose to go one of two ways. You always get angry, that just comes with the territory, but then you have a choice. You can either carry the terribleness on and treat everyone you meet after that badly, because you've suffered and you want them to do the same, or you can resolve to let the terribleness end with you and to try and make sure that no one ever feels the way you have, at least not whilst you can do something to change it.

I chose the latter obviously, not that it was much of a choice, because in truth I was just built this way. But it troubles me that some may not find the help I want them to find. I know many of you write to me and tell me how reading the experiences of others has helped you, and I really appreciate that, it helps to keep me going and I am going to apologise now to anyone who wrote and that I never managed to write back to. Being ill for many years meant some things just got lost along with the years of my life that disappeared too. It totally destroyed my confidence, not that I had an abundance to begin with, and although I am gradually working my way back slowly to the person I was, it always helps to be reminded that the little you can do does make a difference. But this isn't really about me, I've always believed that there is value in shared experience, and if anything I have done has helped you I would really like that knowledge to help others.

With this in mind I am writing this page to ask you to share how this site has helped you. I want to build a page of feedback, testimonials, praise for the site, call it what you will but essentially a page that will give people confidence that reading the experiences of others, whether it be via pet loss stories, tributes, diaries, poems or just my pages on how grief feels, can and does actually help. I want to encourage people to read others experiences and continue to be encouraged to share their own, knowing that the value of this is twofold for everyone.
