Where's everyone from?

Postby xjulesx » Fri Jan 14, 2011 11:21 am

Just want to see where everyone is from, our ages and our families and who we lost and anything else you may want to add!

hope that's ok as I often read peoples posts and can't see who they've lost etc

I'm Julie , 36, from the UK, I have 3 gorgeous kids and I lost my ex partner of 14 years in July 2010,He hung himself, we'd only recently split up , my choice but for very good reasons but I still loved him, maybe not how I used to but how can you not when you've spent so long with someone!


Would love to know more about you all if you are upto that?

Jules,

I am 58 years old, with two wonderful grown children- my son and daughter, ages 38 and 33. I have a most amazing grandson, Nicky, who is 3 years old. They make me want to keep a toe-hold on the planet every day. For that I am eternally thankful.

I am Valerie, 45. I live in Ohio. I lost my oldest son, Scott in 2007 when he was 17. He has 2 brothers, now 17 & 6.

Its been a rough road but Iam pouring myself into a prevention coalition and next month will begin facilitating survivor support groups for our mental health board and Partnership for Violence Free Families. I helps me to help others on a path I was all alone on until I found this forum.

It is nice to "meet" with a few more details, good thread.
