About The In Between

The In Between.

It’s a place neither here nor there, forward nor back, in nor out. It’s a state of being, a state of mind. Grief and loss is often a time of being In Between. One can feel a sense of being in limbo, unable to move one way or another. They are walking In Between. Someone finding themselves experiencing unexplainable things in the walls dividing this world from others is also walking In Between. This website was created to be a haven, a resting place for those on that journey In Between. It’s a community of travelers, a place to talk about the subject that we all experience but not everyone is comfortable discussing. It’s a grief support network, but one that is a little different than the rest.

What this Site Is:

•A community of people helping people through grief and loss ( both human and animal).
•A network to share and try to understand paranormal experiences without fear of ridicule or condemnation.
•An access to talk directly to founder Jacqueline for more one on one help.
•A comfortable spot to return to whenever needed to remember those who have passed on.
•An opportunity to brainstorm with other openminded, compassionate people to try to understand and accept your loss, your paranormal experiences or both.
•Non religion based. Faith can play a large part of people’s understanding and acceptance of their journey In Between. All faiths or none is accepted here, but religion is not our focus.

What This Site Is Not:

•A ghost busting or ghost hunter website. Many of us do have some paranormal experiences that dont seem to relate to anyone we know and we do chat about them, but that is not the primary focus of this site.
•A means to communicate with the dead. While our founder does have a special connection and understanding with this part of life, she is not a medium for hire.
•Limited to grieving humans. Often those who have lost an adored animal companion are met with comments such as “It’s only a dog.” Here at the In Between we recognize that grief and loss are not limited to losing only those with two legs.

    Think this is wonderful … have been reading the journals .. so …. I decided to register for updates and I think something went wrong!
    It asked for my wordpress name and password. It said that my password wasn’t right, which I didn’t quite understand, so I hit the “get a new password” key, and they sent me a new one … BUT, it’s for your blog, not mine! Eek .. have ignored it, so everything still ok, but very odd.

    At 6:45 this morning I lost my wonderful Shepard/Akita. 24 hrs before she was chowing down her food and seemed perfectly normal. I woke up that morning and left the house. When I returned at 1 and called her in to eat she did not come. After a moment of searching and thinking perhaps she got out I saw her underneath the back steps. When I called she didn’t move. When I picked her up she was limp as a dishrag. I brought her inside and to spare the un-pretty story found she had severe diarrhea and was bleeding internally.

    A single mom un-employed since February I had no finances to seek medical care and the reality is their is probably little they could have done to save her. Still I feel guilty. She looked to me for help and I couldn’t attempt to help her.

    I have a very strong bond with all my family, but the furry and feathered family members play a more active role in my every day life. The loss of any family member is difficult, but I find people are less sympathetic to our grief when it is the loss of a beloved pet. I lost my two parakeets a few months ago, and as I work with people with special needs, I forced myself to head into work after spending most of the night caring for my feathered friend…knowing he was not long for this world. The pair had somehow got into a room we usually kept shut… knowing it still had lead paint on the woodwork. I waited a few days…watching them carefully, after seeing paint chips on the floor. I was hoping for the best because there is nothing they can do to cure lead poisining. I came home after work and one of the parakeets flew to me and died moments later in my hands. I knew that it wouldn’t be long for the other one to pass if he had eaten the paint as well. It wasn’t. I stayed with him all night so he wasn’t alone…and in the wee hours of the night he finally let go. I tried to get a few hours of sleep and headed to take one of the individuals I support to an appointment. I was reeling from the loss. My birds knew I was awake before I knew..lol…and would swoop down from their perches, flying inches from my head, repeating this process until I dragged my weary bones from my bed and greeted them properly. It was a wonderful way to start each day. I had a difficult time working that day, just going through the motions, and when asked what was wrong I shared the loss of my birds. I was surprised at peoples reactions and wondered if maybe there is something wrong with me that I love my animals “that” much and feel their loss profoundly. I thought about it a bit and have come to the conclusion that I am blessed to have the capability to love, and to be loved, that profoundly. I feel sorry for those who have never had an animal in their lives and have never experienced how much joy, laughter, and love they can bring. They couldn’t understand my grief because they have never experienced the kind of relationships I have with my animal friends. I am glad there is a place we can share and support others who do understand!
