Why I came back

In reply to Is it safe to return?, posted by Aphrodite on August 1, 2004, at 6:17:29

Thanks for the welcome back. It feels good to be here.

When I peaked once, Dinah was busy trying to ward off the trolls. (Bless your heart, Dinah.) Then, I looked again the other day and was struck by Pfinstegg's post above about DID and was inspired by her strength in relating her struggles. That is the beauty of Babble -- all of us who would otherwise be alone in the world of therapy, questioning our sanity -- can come together and realize we're not alone or so strange afterall.

 

amazingly strong!

Isn't that just what makes this place so Amazing? i don't think i have EVER met such INCREDIBLY and truly STRONG people in my life, than the people here! Think, just Think about what we are all dealing with. not just normal everyday woes. but biological issues that just COMPOUND everything about life! it's an everyday battle ground, but we battle inside.
I always say, if you break a leg you can compensate by using the other leg, the same with an arm or a hand, even with loss of sight or hearing we compensate with other senses...what do you compensate with if it is our mind that is hurt??? we have to just take it slower, take things day by day, adjust organizational techniques, ask for help from doctors and family/friends. This battle is a battle within our own minds. we fight and struggle within ourselves. And THAT is why babble is so great. it takes away that isolation of always battling alone.
i don't know if this makes sense but i want to say that the battle is individual but the fight is together (with babble).

But making it, now THAT is something to be proud of, when we make it one more day! that's what i say!
Every day is another battle won.
Be proud.
even though we are responsible only for ourselves, this community, this love, true understanding, and acceptance of one another is just incredible.

Although people post when they feel weak, i think that they are much stronger than they know!
Glad you're back!
b2c.

That's really lovely, Aphrodite. What a wonderful reason to come back. It shows how very strong you are, you know. (It's stronger than I think I am.)

I meant to say that I believe that I was falsely accused. (slow down :) )

 

Pick and Choose Aphrodite

Just don't read everything. Skip anything that might send you over the edge or even near it. Bath is warm enough for toes, but turns cold on and off.

If you know what I mean...

No, I don't have a clue what you are talking about. I'm not near any edge, and I don't understand why you would imply that I am.

fires,
Daisy's posts (duplicates for some reason) were directed towards Aprhodite. You can tell that by the name in the subject line.

Oops, this system still seems counter-intuitive to me: changing subject lines; name of previous poster not included unless you check a box, etc..

Anything I don't use often enough tends to find a way out of my memory. ;)

I'm back from my weekend of unavailabity.

Maybe we should continue this on a separate thread?

And (she says teasingly) isn't it a wee bit egotistical to think you were the troll referred to? You go off to a bad start with some people here, but at least several of us (so far) know we can discuss things with you quite pleasantly.

I believe Dinah was much busier elsewhere.....

Good to see ya.

What do I have to do with this scenario, if you don't mind my asking?

Hay there fires.

It's long and complicated, but there are some here that have been offended by some of what you posted.

If you would like to discuss it with me, why don't you start another thread and I'll try to explain.

Just remember that in my explaining, I will not be attacking you. I'm explaining as a friend.

Okie dokey?

I noticed you are posting at late hours. I need my beauty sleep. Desperately.

FYI - in case you don't know all the babble rules - posting to someone that requested that you don't is a blocking offense around here.

Now, about that separate thread? You pick a topic.

Re: Babble rules. How is one to remember who said that they can't reply to them? With all the subject line changes and presumed name changes: Who's on first?

Don't have time for new thread now.

bye
