| | Re: Local TAMs Separation/Divorce Support Group?
I agree that would be awesome! I used to be a member of an online fan group that had a whole network of local fan communities all over the world. It was basically a support group for geeks, lol.
But it was nice to talk online with these like minded people, but even n.icer to get together and meet them in person. It was definately one of the coolest experiences of my teens/early 20s. If there was any sort of TAM meetup going on anywhere relatively close to me (Pennsylvania is where I am), I'd be game to try and go.
Also agree that is kind of why I am leery of support groups, because I am afraid of having an experience like NSweet's. I don't want t be treated like a victim of abuse, or like I need to be told I have to "move on" or "be strong"...these are things I am fine with. I am just trying to grieve properly....because last time, I didn't. I just started running and didn't look back, and I thought I was strong, but in truth I was just repressing everything and in denial about how okay I was, and it pretty much destroyed my life in the end. This time I want to cry and grieve and feel it and fully accept my husband is gone...so that I'll be a lot more cautious and prepared if/when the day comes that he wants to come back.
