A Heartfelt Thank You to the DU Community
Edited on Thu Aug-19-10 12:47 AM by oxymoron
I am completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness and support in response to my post.

I am taking some time for myself and will deal with any ramifications when I come out of this a bit. I want you all to know how much I appreciate the sage advice and expressions of love and concern.

1. K&R. Wow. Had not seen your post before...
Wish I could recommend it now. You wrote beautifully, from the heart, and deserve every ounce of support that you were given. DU is a very special place and your post belongs at the top of The Greatest Page. Hang in there... You have so many friends here. Thank you for sharing with us.

Rhiannon :hug:

2. what an incredibly tough situation you're in... I'm so very sorry
Making the decision to take care of yourself is a scary one these days, but that tired old oxygen-mask metaphor seems to apply here. Sometimes you just have to do what you really have to do. You just can't run on empty forever. Nobody can.

Let us know how you're doing. You have many friends. :grouphug:

7. I missed your first thread, but thank you for this one.
I hope you're able to get passed where you are now and come out the other side in a better place.

I also hope at least one more person inclined to blame you for your condition is caused to find some real, true, empathy as a result of what you wrote.

12. I too missed your first post, am glad that many did not.
take care of yourself. You are not a second class citizen, those that refuse you equal rights are. There are many of us who are standing up and letting them know it is way past time for all to be recognized and treated equally.
Hope this vid gives you a smile, hubby made it for me to celebrate our love. That's The Thing About Love (you don't choose it-it chooses you). :hug:
