I have been a member of DS for almost 3 months. I joined shortly after the death of my mother. During this time, I have met some wonderful, caring, supportive people who have helped me tremendously in dealing with my grief.

I recently left a group that I liked due to nasty negative comments. This all occurred due to a member posting a thread of off-topic messages that had nothing to do with the support group in the first place. I have experienced more than my share of bullying in my life, from childhood into adulthood, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this.

I always have to get up so early in the morning."A lie, I know. But she...
