Diving into this already thriving forum seems really daunting. Reading is the most therapeutic activity in my life, but I've used writing as more of fun exercise or way to express an opinion on a particular subject. I've recently been attempting to use my writing to heal the wound of losing my dog. Can anyone direct me to something they think is relevant in this area? Does anyone recall seeing anything on traumatic loss? Has anyone used writing to cope with this? What if it's too hard? Have you found peace in this? How did you feel about sharing it?
