Hi,

For some reason, I didn't see this post until today.

> The thought that I might have made a difference
> is amazing, and it made my day, well far more than that actually.
<<I'm serious about that. As a "word" person, seeing supportive stuff from real people who face their own little hel*s each day is really helpful to me. Makes me think God isn't ganging up on me alone. Not that I want anyone else to suffer, I really don't. Just nice to know others can relate. :-)

> One in particular stands out in my mind, where I was absolutely humiliated 'publicly' by someone I thought was a dear friend privately and here on babble. I wasn't in great shape to begin with,
but I was absolutely devasted and bewildered. Well those are understatements.
>>Even though I don't know the specifics, I've been betrayed by people I was really close to as well, so I feel for you. Nobody can hurt you like the ones you love.

>
> Not only did people speak up in my defence,
> a group of the women here ended up having me laugh about it.
<<That's great. :-)

>>I wish I could give more details I'm not sure if its permitted, but trust me I never ever thought I could end up laughing about it. The power we have to help each heal other even though it may be through such a seemingly impersonal medium, is truly amazing.
<<No details necessary. I've already seen some of the, hmmm, *odd* things posted on these boards. I guess I'll have to be here longer to see if some of these *odd* posts are done out of ignorance to how they might affect other readers, or if they knowingly mean to be hurtful. (I'll laugh so hard if someone asks me what I mean by *odd*).

I guess it *is* impersonal in a way. But in another, with the shield of anonymity, I think people feel freer to post more intimate stuff.

Cheers.

Susan
