I know you are going through a really rough time, Deb. I just wanted to let you know I'll be thinking of you this weekend, and wishing you well. Whatever happens with your therapist, I wish the best for you.View Thread
I share your pain with this, Deb... I don't know why anybody would want to make false accusations against you. However, I do know that there are some people out there in this world who like to take advantage of people, who like to get a rise out of them, who want the reaction and don't care who they hurt. You don't have to put up with that, and I applaud you for sticking up for yourself. We'll stand by you too.View Thread
True, one small fight is still too many, but I really think I'm doing better. We resolved it much faster and came to an understanding quicker than before. The main problem was that my stress over talking about a difficult subject made me unresponsive even to positive feedback and I kind of spazzed. When that happens it's really hard to listen to reason and I resort to fear and excuse making, meanwhile thinking I'm being reasonable. The real problem is, when I'm in that state, I forget all my coping strategies!
Anyway, the point being is, we resolved this one much more quickly and it wasn't a half-day long acrimonious discussion. And we ended the evening happily. So that was good.View Thread
That's really sweet of you to be thinking of us. I ask that you think about this, though: you don't show caring by going away. You show caring by staying with your friends, by rewarding their caring. We, your friends, would like to have you with us.
I know how hard it is to take that in and understand it. I'm still trying to learn that too.View Thread
An_250579 seems to be a troublemaker. I have seen them post before and I have not seen them contribute anything helpful.
Deb, don't listen to this anonymous person. If they could stand behind what they said, they wouldn't hide behind an anonymous user name, would they? It's plain to see you have people who care about you here, who will defend you. Please let that in, and at least see this as an opportunity to have people support you.
We support you, Deb. Don't let yourself be hurt by this anonymous user.View Thread
I'm glad you had a good weekend, Dennis. I had a pretty good one. Did some art, did some marketing for my site, had some quality time with the spouse, and one (small) fight! So that was pretty good!View Thread
By the way Dennis, there's another dragon waiting for you on my website. The link is on my profile as usual. This one is black and white but I think you might like it. As usual, you can send it as a free ecard if you want.View Thread
