      What to do if you get a "Wrong Password" message   01/21/16

      You must reset your password (even if you know it's the right one) before you can sign into the community. Thanks to the upgrade, there's an issue with passwords and signing in. The good news is that you can click here: http://community.grandparents.com/index.php?/lostpassword/ to change your password (it'll let you reuse your old one). If you can't reach the email address connected to your account then please contact the admin at latoya@grandparents.com and I'll help you sort it out.

... to 50 Shades of Blue! As the Forum Description says, it's a group for those who struggle/have struggled w/  any of the several "shades of blue" - depression or other mental health issues,"the blues" or even just "the blahs.". It feels a little strange, welcoming people to a forum that focuses on sadness, but welcome, anyway! Members are usually very gentle and sensitive in their replies here in "Shades," so please feel free to come in here and lay your burden down...

... specific posting and moderating guidelines...


While it says "on this forum" in here ^^^, these rules are actually for the whole community. You'll find a similar thread or the link to one pinned to every group.

Also, please note that these guidelines were originally posted in 2015. and updated/refined since then. As such, not all of them may necessarily be reflected in any threads you might read that are older than that. Nor do we mods go back and edit/delete posts in such old threads retroactively!

... and if you suffer specifically from SAD (seasonal affective disorder)...



Also from MIL Anonymous...

... if you want help deciphering acronyms, etc. often used here...


... And if your actual email addy and/or first and last names are in your username, we recommend that you change that for greater privacy. To see how to change your username for any reason, click this on...
