  1. I am thankful for all of you.  Lightness and optimism coming your way!

  2. Hi Hoping8, How was last night for you? I'm hoping you got at least a little sleep. I know it's really difficult to fall asleep when the anxiety is running high... It's also tough to function when you're sleep-deprived... Just wanted you to know I'm still thinking of you and sending you fierce-grace energy :) And also, when you get a chance, try sending me a PM again. I did receive 2 other messages within the past couple days from other people, so if you can't send one then I should probably let someone know so they can fix it.... I hope today is good for you. Take care.

      Seems like a Hs time it let the PM go through!

  3. Hi Matt, and welcome. I know what you mean about happy and shaking—it is a big step to start intentionally seeking out places and people who will support and “see” you. It’s powerful and new, and exciting. Congrats on reaching out for what you need!

    Blind stupid persistence.

    Aw, @Gordy, I am all for you doing and saying whatever serves you, but please know that I hope you’ll get to a place that you don’t need to call what you are doing blind or stupid. Maybe brave and determined? Resolved and courageous??? F-you and bad**s???

    Hang in there, @Gordy. Lots of birds of that feather here, I think. Sorry you are hurting, but glad that you are sharing.
  6. Hi @sarahoknow and welcome. You will find a lot of acceptance and support here. I am glad you found this site.
  7. Hi @WaterfallSoul I am glad you found this site—it is full of support and kindness, and lots of people who can relate to parts of your experience, even though only you know your whole unique experience. You are welcome here!
  8. Hi @Cam♂, and welcome. I’m glad you found this site and I look forward to getting to know you better.

    Hi @HurtingMommy. I’m sending you healing thoughts and empathy.
  10. Hi @Engenbran, I hope you are starting to get used to the site. I remember when I first joined feeling completely unsure of how to even “get around” the site. I’d never been part of any online community before. It is a good place—I am glad you found it.

    Hi @SPNEmB it’s good to meet you. I know you’ll find support and kindness here, and yep, NOT your fault!
  12. Hi! I’m up and I am glad you found this place. I’m glad to hear you if you feel like company.
  13. Hi @KindaConfused, and welcome. I remember feeling something like what you express here, and as hard as it was, I needed to look around, take my time, read some stories, and let it sink in. If someone had volunteered answers or opinions at that point, I am certain that I would’ve run away—never mind that I thought I was ready for answers. You are welcome here, and I am glad to meet you. I learned that the “share your story” part is sometimes graphic, and there were times that I needed that. You might too, or you might not. The “gathering place” seems to be where people post daily trials and get reinforcement. Look around and feel free to reach out if you need it.
  14. How powerful and exciting that you are redefining this time of year! Good job!
