Pet Loss Board
This bulletin board is to be used exclusively by people who lost a
pet. This is a safe place where your can say what they feel
and not be criticized. This is a place to be accepted for who we are,
right where we are, wherever we are in our recovery. Welcome!
Suicidal ideation and discussions of suicide are
permitted as long as you are not at immediate risk. Thoughts of
suicide are normal for may of us as we suffer depression, etc. We
need to discuss these things openly.
However, anyone who is actively suicidal (i.e. at
risk) is not permitted into the room as they are encouraged to call
911 immediately. I have written a suicide crisis
intervention page for you including many resources here.
You are welcome back into the bulletin board after
you have taken the steps necessary to save your life.
Discussion of self-mutilation or self-harm can be
discussed, again as long as you mention it in your subject.
Discussion of these topics can be a trigger for some people so we
need to protect everyone on this board. If you feel you may be
triggered in anyway by the subject matter, wait until you are able
to handle that subject.
Self-destructive behavior (speeding, shop-lifting,
criminal behavior, etc.) again are permitted with the subject put in
the subject line.
No arguments are permitted on this bulletin board.
It is fine to say you disagree with someone and why, but it is not
appropriate to rage. This is not the place to rage. This is the
place to discuss your rages.
I encourage people to make friends with people you feel
safe with. You might want to exchange email addresses. If you want
privacy for your discussions without your family reading your mail,
feel free to use the free email service provided
on the first page of the website.
If anyone is having any difficulty in anyway
regarding the bulletin board, please feel free to email the
