Well said this forum is by far the best and that is because it feels like a family. It is a place were we can come and speak to people who can relate to how anxiety can affect our life, we can share our experiences and help and support each other through the good and bad times. I agree it is important to share the positive steps we have made as others may gain from this and then make there own steps to improve there situation. I have had great support here from members and really happy to have found this forum and the members which make up this great family. I also like to help others and find this also helps me to deal with my own anxieties. This is a great place to share our goals and help others to take one step at a time and beat there anxiety, depression and addictions etc etc. We need to work together to keep the family together and im sure we will do that, I have enjoyed meeting you all and made some great friends.

Lyn great to see you back on the forum and thanks for posting this thread.

Take Care

......WE have had our shares here of misunderstandings on the forum but that is easy to do in the written ( typed ) world but we also have gotten thru them
 
I truly had a hard time when I was given a different ( generic ) Pain med of Morphine it put me into such a deep dark depression I could not even call Lil sis
I was hurting big time..Doc changed me to Oxycontin and I am 110%
But she never gave up on me and for that I am Blessed and I am back FULL THROTTLE
 
AS WELL the members here didnt forget me and you know when I signed on yesterday I literally balled my face off when I saw that.......
NOW that is truly family to me smilewinkgrin
I care so deeply for each of you
Some of course like you and others have a special place in me heart
Thats because of all we have been thru together
I will get to know other members and them me .........
 
THat is a friend a family member and my lil sis smilewinkgrin
Whilst gone I did think of you all and I wish I could have made self come to the puter but I just could not
** I KNOW I can count on all of you to bring this about and get right back into the way we were
We havent strayed to far and thats a good thing
There is no better place for anxiety and Panic on the internet than HW
It is our members and all that we do share
The support and caring we truly show and mean

From me heart

Lyn,
 
So glad to see you back and happy to hear that you are feeling better.  You certainly have been missed.  I agree that this is a wonderful family and there is no better support on the web than right here on HW, so we need to keep everyone together!

Hey my lovely Canadian Sis tongue
 
Do you really think anyone of us could every forget you?  I don't think so nono
 
You are a force on here and HW would never be the same without you dear friend  tongue
 
I love this forum and all of our family also and am so blessed to be a part of this great team!  Like any family we will have bumps in the road and pick ourselves back up again better and stronger than ever.  There is nothing that can keep us down but ourselves. . . I see this everyday with all the tragedy that touches so many lives, and everyone still posts giving so much support and love to each other anyway :)  If that is not true strength and determination, then I don't know what is.  I am proud to have met so many great people that have been an inspiration to me.  Thank you all so much for that.  You have saved my life in many so many ways and that is the best gift in the world!
 
Take care all and keep let's keep our family going through all that is thrown our direction tongue
 
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

you guys really do all seem like a family. i think that's wonderful!:-) it's something to strive for, i think, especially on a forum like this when what's being talked about is so personal and so difficult.

i know i am a new attendee and so am not quite part of the family yet (this is more because of me than any of you-it takes me awhile to feel comfortable and find my place in new places. i've been posting on the fibro board for 3 months, and am just now starting to feel comfortable there!), but hopefully one day i can be part of it!
love and hugs

So glad to have you back Big Sis and I am so sorry I could not hold it together like you do. I hope you will be able to be here more as  for some reason things just run smoother with you at the helm.
 
Bless you and I am glad you are feeling better.
 
Love

Big Sis,

Aw poop, now I have tears in my eyes.  You know I look up to you and to AK and from the beginning you have taken me under your wing and helped me, protected me when I was down and supported me always.

I know I sometimes keep my issues to myself as they seem so small compared to what I read here but then they boil over and I call you and cry on your shoulder.  When you are missing I worry so about you and I know your problems so I have a legitimate right to be afraid for you.  I always just wish I could come to your side and just hold your hand.

We have weathered these episodes in the past where the forum starts to get a bit narly but we pulled it back together.

Having the new mods is a blessing and AK, your support and allowing me to hug a caribou really helped. smhair

I am proud to be a part of this family and I am loyal to A & P and HealingWell.

I would be lost without all of you.

Just had a bad moment, weaning off the AD is a bit nutso but I am making it so far.

Gentle Hugs to everyone....................and you all know my email is open.................so I am available and will get back to anyone ASAP.

Forever yours faithfully,

Kitt

Wow... Pretty colors. //@.@\\'...

Well, it's good to see everyone all joyous and stuff. :)

I have to say, though, that the A/P forum and the Crohn's forum don't really seem like family to me (nothing can put me into a bad state of mind quicker than family, it seems like. Not to mention all the family drama, the constant yelling and fighting)...

I'd say you guys are more like... really close friends. :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

That is okay Celey :) We are here for you as a close friend as well :) I also have many people in my family that are all about the drama as well, and I totally understand where you are coming from :) I personally have more friends that are like family, than family that are friends. . . It happens to the best of us and I personally choose to pick those that have the honor of being family to me. I think I kind of like that level of control, lol :)

Take care Celey :) Your sense of humor cracks me up!

I also just showed up after disappearing for about a year.  After Dad died and the Parkinsons kept getting worse I was pretty much lost also.  I've retired and I'm getting DBS surgery in three days.  I was just cruising around a little trying to see what was going on with some of the familiar names.  I'm still cancer free according to the doctor and the possibility of leukemia turned out to be "only" ITP.  You don't want me to spell that one out, but look it up if your white blood cell count is falling.  My initial reaction today is that the forum has improved, and it was great before.  The regular members are indeed a family, but better.  If you've been around for awhile you know the old "it's always your turn and no one will interrupt" routine and it's true.  When Dad was tossing the word salad I would hope that he would just be quiet.  I would really love to hear him again.  You may be sitting alone and lonely, but the world is at your fingertips even if, like mine, the tips are feeling a bit numb.--the Riviera guy

The supportive setting that's developed here is a real blessing. And I so value the fact that we can share our thoughts, feelings, and fears without worrying about being judged, or put down, or ignored.

Even if we don't agree, folks on this forum try to be respectful of others. That's such a healing sensation on those days when the people around physically - at work, home, the store, or wherever - are more into boosting themselves by smacking down others.

Thanks, all of you, for being the great family (or really good friends, like Celey says) that you are.

I enjoy coming to this forum because you guys really do treat everyone like family, i've felt so welcomed here since my first post. I'm comfortable here because i can relate to someone finally and you guys actually understand what i'm going through.

P.S. I was flipping through my psychology textbook and there's a whole chapter in it devoted to anxiety disorder and disorders of that nature.....i cant wait till we discuss that chapter in class, she'll have my full attention!!!!!

Great post. We are all a family, not by blood, but by a common bond of anxiety and panic disorders. Everyday ,as my anxiety continues to diminish and I am blessed to return to an emotional state  far better than  what it was before my first panic attack in 1992, I praise God that I have been granted this tool of learning called Anxiety and Panic. This amazing tool of panic and anxiety has taught me humility and compassion. For that I am grateful. I am grateful also for this wonderful forum in which we can support each other as a rock-solid family. When I had rough sailing around the first of Jan..you..my family online were there in my moment of need. I will do my part as much as humanly possible given the demands of life..We will do this together.

I am so happy that you are all thinking the way I and other mods/ members do
This is a FAMILY

WE have gone thru SO much and together we WILL get thru anything that comes our way

We are a caring sharing empathetic and supportive group of ppl
I truly believe that it is a GIFT of the anxiety and panic as well as Depression that makes us more understanding and supportive to others

THanks to all of you ..............Luvs
