Edited on Tue Jan-01-08 02:46 AM by BeHereNow
The last 4 months have been HELL.
Without going into details, let me just say it has
been a very trying time.
DU has been a rock for me.
Disagreements and all.
I love you guys.
Thanks for being there and giving me
a rock to hitch my anchor to.

Happy New Year to my eclectic DU family-
BHN

1. Is your daughter home safe and sound -- or is it too early to be asking that
on New Year's Eve? :7

I agree about DU - I've only been here a short time, and this is where I come for news, info, education, and just some people to hang with!

:hi:

3. Nope, not yet, and in the mean time I have aged several years.
Here's the deal- my daughter is a young adult with asperger's syndrome.
She has tended to self medicate for the depression over
the social isolation that many asperger people feel.
Tonight she went to a club. Alone.
A brave attempt to meet some other young people.

Honestly, I will not breath normally until she gets home.
I am waiting for the call.
She is so very vulnerable.

5. That is so very brave of her - and so very loving of you supporting her decision
to do this, despite your fears.

I'll hold you both in my heart and I have faith she'll be back home with her mom soon. And then you can breathe again.

:hug:

7. Yes, it was brave of her... social situations paralyze her, but she wants so badly to make friends.
So yes, it was a very brave move for her.
She called a few minutes ago requesting a 2:00 AM
pick up...I feel my pulse returning to normal.
Whew...

2. I'm glad you're here too!
:hug:

That's why it's called 'family'.

We may disagree and even get in fights sometimes but so do family's. ;)

It doesn't mean we stop loving anyone.... it's just a disagreement.

4. Thanks Breeze- do you suppose they will someday write about us in the
Sociology textbooks?
DU really is a sociological benchmark of some sort-
of that I am convinced.
I have met so many wonderful people over my years here.
In person and online too.
BHN :loveya:

13. I can see that very clearly happening!
You are very astute and your comment made me chuckle! :P

You're funny! Maybe DU will be in the comic books too!! :rofl:

:hug:

I hope you're feeling better.

PM me and we can talk in a chatroom...BUT

you HAVE to have a headset...ya know with headphones and a microphone attached. ;)

PM if you have that, OK? If you don't? You can buy them for about $10-15 at Wally mart or K-Mart...or CVS maybe. :shrug:

8. And to you donheld.
Lord knows we all deserve so much better than
the last seven years of neo facism have brought us.
Thank goodness we have had each other to lean on
through the darkest time in our collective history.
May 2008 be the beginning of the end of our nightmare.

14. Its the truth! This place keeps people sane.
When Bush was acting like a fascist, I discovered this place, where other people could see it too. It probably kept me from turning completely mad.

15. Best to you, BHN
'07 was a year from hell for me, too.
And DU is my island of sanity.
Hugs 'n'at all around.
