Hey My A/P Family tongue
 
I wanted to start out by posting my gratitude to everyone, but decided not to be selfish and that it would be nice for all of us to show gratitude and support for all of our family here.  So many tragedies lately in many, many of our HW family's lives and when we love people so much, the pain for them falls upon our hearts and we need to take it upon ourselves to be good friends and give a shoulder of support and comfort.  We are a family in our wonderful peer support group and we need to keep it this way :)  I know that so many of you don't need a lecture in this area, but I'm just saying how I feel :)  I love all of you!
 
Our dear Lyn a.k.a Big Sis has been going through a lot lately to say the least.  Various health issues, plus all the support she gives to her beloved family for personal issues even though she is hurting . . . Then the tremedous amount of time she spends with all of her HW family as well. She needs all of our support and prayers right now to help get her better so we can get her back here to a forum that she has worked so hard on and is the backbone for all the standards of support and family that we are blessed to have to this day.  She became a member in 2005 on HW, has almost 22,000 posts, and has volunteered so much of her time to moderate the A/P, Alzheimer's and the Crohn's forums.  That is so impressive to me and an inspiration for me to do more with my life to help others.  Lyn is such a wonderful and sweet person. . . I miss her so much and pray for her and her family everyday.  Lyn, I love you and you will always have a friend in me. . . We are lost without our "mother hen" and just want to let you know how much you are loved and appreciated my friend :)  You are one of a kind and no one could ever take your place in our hearts and with your tremendous wisdom :)  I know I'm missing some important words here, but I hope you can see that the ones written encompass so much more than I can say Big Sis :)
 
All of you other mods are so awesome as well :)  You mods give so much of your time and I just want to throw out a big high five for all you've done for me. . . Thank you so much :) To our senior mods, Kitt/Lil Sis, you are another backbone along with Lyn and you two are so much alike in always giving to others here while dealing with multiple things on a personal level and hold this place together by always being on here. . . You're just another "mother hen" that we love :)  I don't know how you do it and you inspire me as well sainted one:)  Megs/Faery Sis, you are a sweetie that I love and wish for you to get better so you can be with us more.  Miss your smiling face on here that brightens all of our days and would be lost without you too :)  freezinginAK/Cowboy, I really respect your wisdom and the no nonsense approach you have to life. . . I hope you get better so we can have you back again as well :)  Miss you man and watch out for that volcano. . . I hope you and your family is safe right now :)  JordaNZone, I have not met you yet but see posts from time to time that are informative and it would be nice to see more of you here :)  Our junior mods, Gail/Sweet Nanners, You are great dealing with so much grief right now in your personal life and still helping all of us as always :)  You are very kind, wise and bring a lot great advice to the forum. . . I admire this in you :)  Percy/Mrs. Percycat (saving the best for last, lol:)  I really love your good advice and the light you shine upon us is wonderful.  Here you are a newlywed and still posting to help others. . . Keep on shining for all of us my friend :)
 
I won't pick on anyone else by throwing you all into the limelight. . . plus I don't want to accidentally leave out somebody and make anyone feel bad or hurt :)  All of you are an inspiration to me and I hope that we can work together to bring this forum back to what it was intended for. . . Healing and Support :)  Again, words seem so to elude me on how much I care for each of you. . . I could write a book, but per forum rules I need to keep it brief and get this posted so you all can express your gratitude and love as well :)  I would like to make a friendly reminder to please read the forum rules again to make sure we are all following them, such as I see many signatures getting pretty long (just fixed mine better:) and they should be 10 lines or less. . . And many of us have also been dealing with flaming/rudeness lately. . . Mods and members alike. . . We can not tolerate this behavior towards our family members here and I see many of us taking care of these situations quickly which is good because this is hurtful to all of us that have enough on our plates right now.  We are the greatest Peer Support Group for Anxiety-Panic for a good reason, because we have each other's backs and we are all HealingWell. . . One day at a time :)
 
Love the whole durn lot of 'ya tongue   Makes my life mean more because you all are in it yeah   We are family!
 
I took out one bit of info re Lyn.......I think she will be here soon to tell her own story...............

Thank you Sam for taking the time to write all the wonderful things you have put here this evening.  We are a family and Lyn is the one who has lit the way from the very beginning.

I know she will appreciate this post and knowing we all care deeply for her.  We have been fortunate to become as sisters as we have so much in common.

However we consisder ourselves family and each of you are a huge part of our lives.

Yeah we are a couple of ole hens,  one of us older then the other but she is still the senior Mod on this forum and always will be.

I have received so much help from all of you and I am drawn here everyday......................Bless each of you and stay safe.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

Sam

This is a really nice thread and I am glad you took the time to post it. I agree this is a fantastic forum and a place were we can come and speak to other members who can relate to how anxiety can affect our life's and get support and advice concerning this. It is also a place were we can give so much to other members by supporting and giving advice to them by talking about our own personal experiences with anxiety and for me personally that is a big + and something I like to do. This is a great family and we all need to work together to keep it that way. The moderators do a fantastic job and give a lot of there time to help other members and this is something we need to make sure that we give that same support and advise back to them in there time off need. I know that lots are suffering at the moment and my thoughts are with you all and together we can beat this anxiety and as Lyn would say kick it to the curb.

Lyn you are a dear friend and my thoughts are with you and your family, I really hope things start to improve for you soon but make sure you take the time to get yourself better. You have helped me loads over the last few months and i really appreciate that and feel free to email me any time and know I am always here to support you. We miss you and hope to see you back soon.

Kitt as Sam said you are such a big part of our family and have helped all of us with your great advise and support, you and Lyn have made this forum the place it is, the best self support group on the net. I would like to take this time to say thank you for always being there. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Meg my Oz friend thank you so much for all your support, you have helped me so much and I really appreciate your help and advise you have helped me through some rough times so thanks. I hope you are feeling better now and enjoying your holiday and will look forward to hearing how it went.

Cowboy my friend hope all is well with you over in Alaska? my thoughts are with you, you to give great advise and I enjoyed our crazy adventure on the magic carpet and still have not mastered the art of lasoing (not sure of spelling) the chicks.

JoraNZone we have not met yet but thank you for moderating our forum would be great to here from you.

Sam my Bro you have always answered my posts and have always been there with great support and advise so thank you so much. You are doing a good job as moderator and thanks for giving us the time. I know you are having a hard time and my thoughts are with you and if i can be of help let me know.

Nanners thank you for all your help and support over the last few months I have appreciated it all and enjoyed your hummer in the magic carpet thread. My thoughts are with you and your family take care and thanks for giving you time to moderate.

Percycat congratulations again on your marriage I wish you all the best, you to have always given me great support and advise so I thank you for that know that I am always here to return that support and thanks for giving your time to moderate this forum.

My prayers to my Big Sis and her beautiful daughter too.

GROUP HUG!! :D
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.

I would like to join the group hug. And I would like to thank everyone for being there for me and the others when we need help. It truly means a lot. I've learned a great deal here already.

I continue praying for all those who have let us know their problems. I hope the prayers are helping. Also, I hope Lyn finds the cause of her terrible headaches. Thank you all, again!

I never did grieve my parents as I needed too

This wknd I had to go and clean out the clothing and furniture from the house as I have it sold......NOTHING has ever been so hard on me......I smelt my dad's blanket and I BROKE.....WE finally got home and at 3am 3:30 am Cait found out her good friend at 18 was killed in Car accident after just signing up for Chef's school and renting his own place.....The car veered off the road into oncoming traffic.......David was killed instantly and the woman is still in hospital

Cait had Visitation last night and funeral today......My doc told me to give her Valium 5 mg prior to both ......Cait is a wreck she talked with her "Auntie too "(Lil Sis)

My health has been up and down with the crohns and fibro as well as Pyoderma........I COULD not make it down the stairs to do anything......Barely out of bed........

I have fallen 4 times for NO apparent reason but am getting tests done....

I was literally at the point of giving up and in.......BUT thats NOT the real me ..........

LIL sis talked to me daily and kept me going......

I have NOT answered any emails but I will get to them tomorrow I promise.......I am not ignoring anyone nor am I trying to hurt anyone ........

PLZ know I do appreciate your support and caring very much..........Luvs.........LYN

I am so glad to see you back Lyn :)  We have all missed you so much at HW and I'm so sorry to hear of all the bad things happening to you my friend. .  All the health problems and helping your daughter deal with the loss of her best friend has to be so hard to manage and you both are in my continued prayers.  I hope you and Cait get to doing better soon and we're always here for you both. . . I hope all the tests come back good.  If you need anything please email me for some help, cause you know I only became a mod to help out when needed. . . I love all the mods and members on here and would be lost without any of you :)
 
Take care and gentle hugs,
Your Bro Sam :)

Dear Big Sis,
I know how tough things have been and I let members know you were OK and would be back soon. I cannot express how much you need to take care of you.........I wish I could be there but right now the phone is my lifeline to you. You are strong and your are beautiful.......

I hope everyone checks out the Members photos and finds the one I posted of you and Cait.............
To all of the Mods of this forum..........we do the best we can when we can and everyone of us covers each other when we need to.

I have been helped by so many and I know how much you all care about each other and the members - the family.

Bless each of you and Big Sis...............TAKE CARE of YOU. I am right here supporting you.

Love
Lil Sis
