It's a really shitty thing to do. So much advice and support lost. I have almost 26,000 posts on here. A lot of those I probably don't want to remember :lol: but there are so many amazing women on here, sharing so much advice that is so helpful to so many women.

I came here 15 years ago as a young mum who felt quite isolated because even though I had friends, none of them had kids. EB was a community of fellow parents who I could both talk kids with and also not have to talk kids with. I've been further educated not only on children related things (MCN, child restraints, night terrors etc) but also on politics and feminism and LGBTQIA+ issues. Not to mention all the mental health support. No one seemed to know about or talk about anxiety when I was first diagnosed 16 years ago, EB knew and talked about it though. In fact they knew and talked about a lot of "taboo" topics.

It's just such a waste to get rid of the collective wisdom and support of thousands of women. The written memories of those mothers and babies who have now passed on but I thought would live on forever here. So I don't blame you for being angry because I am too.

I hear ya.

I am p*ssed.

I have been a member since the teal days before you had to even sign in!

Back to when I was pregnant with my now soontobe 17 year old. Probably even before.

I was fairly "controversial" and a bit of a w*n*er some times. But goddamn I made some friendships on this site. Life long ones.

Sarah, I will get to Tasmania! ❤️

 

I feel a little teary and regretful. So many posts lost.

I earned some back for good behaviour. Then I think they gave up.

And I became too tired to argue :)

a letter to Elise.

I feel really sad about it all. So many years, so many great chats, friends, connection... EB got me through the lonely days of motherhood. I can’t believe they’ve made this decision when we need these online connections more than ever.

I miss Nat too. I was lucky enough to connect with her IRL and she was who I thought of first when I learnt this was all being erased.

I appreciate your post. I always wondered why you deleted me. I mean I know i can be a b**ch and get people off side but I always always stand up for wrong doings and  I am fiercely loyal.

I do wish our collective words of truth to you had stuck more, I hate to see how you are still talking about yourself.

needs to get out: I've missed you. :hugs:  I'd love it if you'd refriend me on FB. PM if you can't remember my FB name. Just send a PM with a ? (literally just a question mark) and I'll send my name to you. You don't need to write anything in the PM. You deserve friends and support. I still think of Nat too. I miss her. I wonder how her little boy is doing. Guess he's not so little now. She loved him fiercely. I'm sad and upset too that EB's collective experiences can be erased so easily at the whim of a faceless corporation. **** them. We'll rebuild at everybump but it won't be the same without the two decades of past posts to search through and learn from.

This place has been great. Nobody gets on with everyone,just like real life, but I honestly can't think of anyone I actually don't like on here..

I deleted everyone :( I realised that my response to being deleted by one person was absurd and it was a sign that I don't have the skills to belong in close contact with people. I had no right to be feeling like that or to subject others to the bullshit in my head.

I try to distract myself from it, but this year has been particularly difficult.

I just received the email. I’ve been here since my daughter was a baby 17 years ago. I don’t really come here much these days but am very sad to see the forums are going to be shut down.

ah thanks, I wonder about you and your children too. I was thinking about you just the other day in fact, before this came about!

Needs to get out, did you have a different user name back in the day? I think I remember you. I left the bar when I needed them most...went through a really hard time with no support in real life (cause the people who knew what was happening didn't care) and no support online cause I didn't talk about what was happening. I always thought the bar was full of awesome people. Didn't always agree with them, but still, regardless of whether we agreed or not, everyone was awesome.

I think of you often and remember you fondly.  Shared experience of being sandgropers.  I hope you and your family are well.  Send me a pm if you would like to reconnect.

I really hope things are better for you now. I enjoyed your friendship.
