Find a Conversation

I just want to say thank you to everyone for being so compassionate. I have lurked here for months, and could never make myself post. I guess it took crisis to make me do it. Anyway, I have received alot of encouragement from everyone here. I want to tell everyone that posted their experiences that you are very brave and should be proud of yourself. Reading these experiences was not easy, I will admit, but foremost it made me realize I wasn't alone. Second, it gave me inspiration because you guys have come a long way! I guess we all had to fight tooth and nail for what we believed in and to come through this tragedy in the shape we are in is amazing. I have noticed that most of us here are married, and seem to be happily so. That is wonderful. It is obviously inspiration for those that are not married that it is possible to find that someone that you can trust and loves you for who you are.
I think it is my turn to give back some of that encouragement and say that I am blessed to have found this group of compassionate women. I feel safe here, and feel able to express myself without those nagging worries of being judged being overwhelming. I still have those thoughts that I can't say "that" because they will think bad of me, but I can get past that much easier. The reason for that is because you all have said "that", and everyone has responded favorably. Writing my story was hard, but it was a relief because I have not told anyone besides my husband and my therapist. So you guys should feel privileged! Ha Ha! I will get off my soap box for now and one more time say THANK YOU!
