I hope it's okay to post this here, I thought it might be helpful to some people. Although it's not new information to a lot of people, it can be helpful for others learn, and I have included some helpful tips on what to do for a friend through each stage. :) I did teach a class one time (at a psych unit actually) about the grieving process... Here's what I found in my research and study. I don't actualy have the handouts or my notes any more, but here's what I remember from my class... So here it is, in a nutshell... hopefully something helpful to someone, or at least information to ponder and discuss! *hugs*

The weekly 5-3-3 is basically a rundown of your week, remembering the good, and letting go of the bad, and planning for the week ahead. Feel free to respond with yours here or in a new entry to the community, as well as in your own journal ^___^

Hi everyone. I was recently displaced by Hurricane Katrina and had to start a whole new life here in Chicago, Illinois. Up until recently, I have been almost completely numb to the fact that I lost my home and many of my friends to the hurricane. But lately I've been feeling more and more upset about the whole issue. I have come very close to picking up my old ways (self-harm, drug abuse)numerous times. This community seems like a wonderful place to find and give support to people who, like me, are struggling with all different types of issues, be they personal or not.

Thanks again,

Welcome to "Moving On".

This community was created as a method for those who are looking for support as they move on from a traumatic experience. This may be a singular occurance or something they've endured for years. It may be illness, it may be abuse, it may be the loss of a loved one or it may be a major life change. The experiences all differ vastly from one another, but are all similiar in their healing methods: one day at a time.

It is easy to feel like there is nobody else out there who understands what you are going through. And while everybody here has a different experience from the other, we understand the impact and the difficulty of finding "normal" or "stable". Everything is a little easier with the help of your friends.

You are not required to share anything about what you are moving on from, but if you wish to do so you are of course welcome. Share only what makes you comfortable.

The goal of this community is to make it a little easier for you to help yourself. We aren't dwelling on the past, but we firmly recognise it happened. We are here to celebrate life and the future, moving towards our own personal goals and improving ourselves. You are more than welcome to celebrate milstones here, no matter how big or small. ("It's been 1 month/6 months/one year/5 years since I've had a drink/smoke/cut" or "I managed to eat my entire dinner tonight" or even just "I was able to have a full shower and do my hair today") If it is a big deal to you, no matter how small it may be in the long run, we're here to cheer you on.

If you find something that inspires you, you are more than welcome to share it here as well.

Please read through the rules before posting. Thanks. :-)
