But every time I log on here, I know I can read of dreams, nightmares and (for lack of a better word) miracles. I know my emotions could be tugged in any direction by what I read.
But everything I read is REAL, from real people, who experience the same things as myself. And that's something I cannot find anywhere else. So I accept the ups and downs, as we all must do.
NZ, I really liked your response. The thread referenced was so encompassing of the human experience, including humor, compassion.
It is up to any one individual & one's skill set, if you will, in how they choose to express themselves, just as we choose how to interpret what we read or hear. So what is good for one, maybe not good for another.
CT is not an easy place to be. Our Memorial sticky thread is testimony to that.
It's ok to have differing opinions...keeps the blood flowing. We all get offended/irritated on here...many times I would say...AND we move forward. I've often wondered why some choose not to have signatures...unless there is fear that the system could get hacked & somehow link a dx w/a name/email. I think it's helpful to offer & receive input from those w/a sig, somewhat of a keep out sign w/o one, so more inclined to interact w/those that do.
The most important purpose of this forum is it removes isolation & through that...all the aforementioned benefits you all have mentioned, occur.
