I'm not usually here on the weekends anyway except to periodically pop in, but I think after this post, I'll sign off for at least 3 or 4 days, maybe more.

I'm saddened by the whole Adam thing, if it's true. I have my suspicions on who else they are investigating, but it doesn't matter; the mods will do their job and let us know.

I am crushed by the Alexander, et al. revelation. I cried over that more than once because "Alexander's" plight mirrored that of a close friend of mine who is dead. I'm angry beyond belief right now, but it's just sitting in the pit of my stomach.

I know most of you, like me, are real and true and trying like hell to maneuver through this crap. Really, I know that and I believe in MS with all my heart. But for a few days, I think I'll take a rest from any of it until I come to terms with what has happened.

Be well everyone........I'll be back for sure.

ROCK ON..........Trish

If you fall down 10 times, Stand up 11.

Have a good rest, Trish, it is well deserved. I have you have a peaceful rest and things get to where you feel comfortable being here again. I've always appreciated your input here so much, it means a lot to all the guys here.

I look forward to seeing you back, but I can imagine how you were hurt by the Alexander issue, given the personal dimension you speak of here. I just wish I could be there with you now to give you a big hug. You are such an important part of our community.

Much love,

I understand that this has hit home with you, but don't let these people ruin a good thing.

It's easy to feel betrayed and like a chump, however I feel very sorry for the people that do this because apparently they have some pretty deep problems to misrepresent themselves to such a terrific group of people. And in the end it's their loss to loose all of the terrific people here.

I do want to say that I am holding any judgement on the Adam thing until it is confirmed - he was far to genuine to me...... I hope it's not true.

We need your insight and humor (and martini's) around here Trish so don't stay away too long.


God has a plan for me, I trust in God's plan.

it sucks that most of the support fnf receive in our situations must come from an internet site - - which puts all of us in a precarious position - who to trust, what to believe

take some time to regroup, be good to yourself, you know you deserve it. we'll still be here, remember, you aren't alone, ever. you've said it to us plenty of times but maybe you need to hear it sometimes too, ok?
