View Full Version : Thank you To Everyone

I would like to thank EVERYONE who has posted to any thread I have posted. I would like to thank you ALL for the kind, loving, caring words that have helped me through some rough spots. Even this morning, while reading some of the replies to me and to others, I know that there is so much love here. Through these tears I now shed, I shed because somebody really understands. I don't have to fake it in here because most of you know what I am going through. So again, I want to say "THANK YOU" to EVERYONE who has prayed, replied and were just there to listen.
SaySusie, I love you because last year when I had a ranting post, you sent me kind words and as I read over them today, I teared up because those words are still helping me today. I love you Mari, Rob, John, and to EVERYBODY who has replied to my rants and crazy posts.
I really don't wish this disease on anybody in my family nor any of my friends or foes. GOD allowed this for a reason so I guess I better just get up and brush the dust off and get on with it.
Thank you one and all.

You've put tears in my eyes, tears of joy; to see the progress you've made.
Bless you and trust in the Lord,
he has his plan, to be revealed in his own time,
would that his time and our were the same but they are not
Hugs and good thoughts

I have to agree with you, people in this forum are awesome.
Even though I read all the posts here every day, I don't always find encouraging words for others, when I am feeling so very bad myself. I do try to help when I can, but others are always ready to make us feel better.
For that I also want to thank you guys.
Btw I think you are great for saying THANK YOU, to all the nice people here.

Thank you Debbie. I know that I, too, cannot answer the posts I see most of the time because I feel so bad myself. Sometimes I just look at the posts and cry because they sound like my story. It is awesome to have people who we can vent to because our families think we are crazy when we vent to them. This morning I went an laid on my husband and just cried. I feel better. I needed that. But before I cried on him, I cried when I was posting. Crying is good because it allows all that pent stuff to come out. Thank you again Debbie. You are great.
Good morning Theresa,
Rants and crazy posts are what keeps this place interesting! Seriously, one of the goals of this website is to provide a safe, and non-judgmental place where people can talk about subjects that they feel they cannot talk to their family or friends about for whatever reason. Your feeling comfortable enough to come here and reach out to others in your time of need tells me that we are doing our job right.
It's good to talk to you again!
I really can't add to what Rob has said (especially about the crazy posts keeping this place interesting LOL). I cannot count the times that I have read posts here and cried because someone has typed what I was feeling. I don't really think it is the words that people say that encourage me but simply the fact that people understand what I am going through. I am so glad you found some peace and understanding here. As Rob said it means that we are doing our job!
I am glad that you are feeling better. A good cry helps so much

what a beautiful thread, thank you for giving each of us the opportunity to share our love for this forum. I very honestly tell people that i have learned how to manage my disease....but, what i keep in my heart is that it was this forum that taught me how to live with lupus....it wasn't any specialist, or any worried family member...it was the wonderful people here....this is why is always welcome people to our "family of the sky".
I am so sorry that you have had such difficult times, i truly hope that you keep standing taller and taller....I can remember the day that i realized that lupus was still knocking me down, but i wasn't falling as far down, and i was getting up quicker.....that is when i realized that i had learned how to manage it...i wish this same realization for you.
