I cannot express my gratitude for your update, it moved me to tears. I think of you often, your messages always touched me deeply. Your stories, experiences, music preferences, and even your struggles made me laugh, write, agonize, and feel like I was with kindred souls.
One of my favorite stories ( http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20000112/msgs/18948.html ), even though it was a horrible experience for you, was when you had the flu and passed out in the shower! I related so well to that experience, having done it myself on many occasions, and your blow-by-blow narration had tears streaming down my cheeks and laughter tumbling from my mouth. When I was a newbie at Psycho-babble, I was intimidated by all the knowledge and experience, and I waited a long time before actually posting my lame-brained newbie question. But the courage I garnered in order to post that first query came from the warmness shared by a couple people, one of which was you.
I am completely overjoyed by your continued good health, and so appreciative of your blatantly stellar update! You made a lasting impression upon me and you will *always* be in my thoughts! You enabled me to laugh even when the darkness enclosed me, and you took my mind off the void awaiting my soul; all through sharing your life, your struggles, and even the "little" things like music preferences so generously and honestly. And all I can give you in return is my eternal and *enormous* gratitude for your honesty in everything you shared and gave to make this place a real community. I feel extremely encouraged by your progress, and I truly hope that you can find the time just to check-in, even a mere once-a-year update would be more than welcomed :-)
Forever, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
