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,
