For blogs, suggestions, comments and questions: 

Tell us about a difficult time in your life and how your friends reacted. Sometimes all people need is some encouragement and direction about what to say and do for each other, and we learn best from those who have 'been there' and can tell the story.

We only need your name and email address if you are submitting a longer piece, like a blog or story, to publish. For comments and questions, please include at least your first name, and let us know if you don't want your remarks posted on the website.
Required if you are sending a blog to publish on the website
Copy and paste your blog here, or you can send a file by email to Mary Cail.
Add your website address if you want it linked to your content.

When you’re in the midst of a terrible circumstance, you don’t have the energy to explain yourself, but you need at least a few people who can go beyond generic words of sympathy and can accept, while continuing to believe in your strength and capability, whatever mishmash of emotion you’re putting out. You need friends with whom you do not have to pretend.
