Hi, again!

I was a very active member of this commuity for about 3 years, I think; and I quit posting and reading around last February. I wanted to come back today, at the dawning of the new year, to share my continued gratitude and appreciation for all that EAS did for me and my family and to give a little support to all who are struggling and to those who continue to guide and support, like to your amazing CL Clarity. Ending an A is a difficult journey - there are so many raw feelings - wounds, both new ones and old ones ripped open fresh.  It is soooo difficult to find clarity and insight while in the tornado off emotion, fear, anger, and sadness -- and I am so thankful that I had this board to hold me up through it all.  I really do not think I would have recovered well, if at all, if I'd not been encouraged, guided, and held on course by my classmates who were/are so dear to me and to the Vets who were my angels (and still are.... God rest your beautiful soul, Iddy.)  I wish I could speak directly and personally to each and every Newbie and shout, "DON'T give up! Never give up.  There is light at the end of this tunnel, and it takes _hard_ work to get there, but your life will be so so so blessed, YOU will be blessed; just keep plugging along no matter what and you'll get to that better, happy place." 

I wish you all peace, joy, and true self-love and friendship in 2013.  Stay strong - and remember you are worth it.

Blessings and thanks,

Dee

Deeeeelighted to hear from you!  One of our Vets who we miss sorely. Your non-nonsense approach and humor...so missed,so missed.

I think of you now and again and wonder how things goeth with you.  Last time we communicated, it seemed like you were going through a rough patch...and I truly hope that patch has smoothed over.

Thanks for coming by to support others by reinforcing the solid support peeps can get here and to stand as testament that we can all do it with strength, courage and determination.

Does this mean that you might stick around for a while.  Sure could you some of that wisdom of yours.

((hugs))

Hi Dee. It is great to hear from you. I hope all is going well with you. Laughing

The core of who you are is not always obvious to everyone. But to believe what others may believe of you can cause you to deny yourself, the wonders, of who you really are.

Hi Dee! WELCOME BACK!!!!! You were one of my favorite Vets. Something you wrote in a post last February was the catalyst for me going complete and final NC. Both you and With Clarity helped me in ways that are immeasurable. Thank you and I am so sooooo glad you are back! Best, Progression

Hi Dee!

Thanks for coming by! I hope you here to help us get life back into this board. I'm sure we can get it back to the amazing place it was before this crappy transition happened.

Your words of wisdom are missing around here, and I personally was so unhappy to loose you here.....

Anyway I hope this finds you well - I'd love to hear more from you.

Love WGO

Every recovery is a kind of rebirth

Hi Dee - nice to see your post, your voice helped me during the rotten still-in-A and post-A days. I will stay strong, and keep plugging! A happy and healthy new year to you as well - Daisy

Dee!  So lovely to see you post again.    Your wit and knack to spread wisdom humour has been missed.  I am doing so much better then when you dumped us and you were an important part of the EAS that got me to where I am today.  So big congratulatory smooches to you.

I hope you are doing well and that 2013 brings peace and hapiness.

Hi Dee!

I smiled when I saw your name on a post!  It made me happy!  And thank you for your encouraging words.  I'm still struggling, but making progress.  Progress, not perfection, eh?

I hope you'll post more often too.  I have saved some of your posts in the past and refer to them often.  You shared once that our XAP's were just throwing shizzz up against a wall to see where it would stick.  And they found that it stuck with us.  So true!  And still makes me laugh!
