I could use some help-grief

Some of you might remembers husband died in August. I'm trying to find some online support sites that are active and not terribly religious. Also open minded and tolerant since my husband and I had a not very traditional marriage.
I tried a support group offered through my job but it's very religious focused and I found myself defending my atheism rather than working on the crushing loss I feel. Maybe if I could be a bit more anonymous it would be easier.

3. Here are a couple of links:

Help Guide isn't a social site, but it gives some useful information for people dealing with a variety of different kinds of problems. Here's their page about Grief & Loss:

http://helpguide.org/home-pages/grief-loss.htm

Daily Strength is a site with many different online support groups -- here's their bereavement group:

http://www.dailystrength.org/c/Bereavement/support-group

I hope you find the right group for your needs right now! Good luck.

4. Hello, I'm sorry for your loss...this is a site

http://www.city-data.com/forum/grief-mourning/


It is active. It is a mixed bag.
I have found some very insightful compassionate people on here, and some not.

I hope you find some support that helps.
My experience is that the grief for the loss of a loved one never goes away, but good support can help one bear it, and help one not be as you say crushed by it.

my best to you.
