Thank you! For putting such great posts out there, for making my days and nights easier, for giving me the feeling of being connected to others who are in similar circumstances.

Thank you for creating this site..it has been an amazing place of ‘refuge’ for me. It helps so much to know that there are others going through some of the same things that we are..and also to realize, unfortunately that some have it even worse. It’s a wonderful thing to have the availability to access anytime on my PC or phone.
