hey, Buff,

this is great to read!

i guess it is safe in this context to say:

my prayers go with you,

and may God bless you!

We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9

Hey buff,

Don't know too much what to say. I never got to know you too well. But you did support me through some of my darker moments. Thank you for being here. I don't think I ever returned that support to any degree. So I am in debt to you.

I hope your journey from here on goes great. You deserve it.

Take care,

I am so glad for you. You have found yourself and now are moving onto a different phase in life. I am happy you find you are the not the same person you were on first coming to MS. That shows progress--you have found inner strength and peace.

I agree with you, we all travel our own path to heal--we all react differently to the abuse and we all heal differently. Healing is not one size fits all. You path has taken you to a wonderful place.

I wish you well and please check in. Let us know how you are doing. You have helped many here and your honesty and insight have been appreciated.

Best wishes,

Hey Buff,

Bittersweet news for me. smile I'll miss talking to you, but I'm so so happy that you've arrived at where you are now. You've made some huge strides, overcome some setbacks, and you certainly deserve everything you've been working hard for. Proud of you. Sending you best wishes for the awesome life you have ahead of you!

Take care my friend.

Good luck Buff! I will look forward to your check-ins smile

Nothing wrong with having some faith.

So happy to hear you spoke in public. I think that needs to happen more. We need to speak out more and share our stories. I am sure you have helped others already. Thank you.

Take care.

"Me too" - I don't think I will ever get tired of saying or hearing these two words.

Wow, awesome and kind words, they mean a lot. Each of you helped me too, and you can know that this new me is in part because of people like you and others here. I will never forget that. I hope this change for me has not hurt anyone either as I didn't really announce it, it just kind of happened in my mind that I needed to do this. People who chatted with me know my mind is kind of fragmented that way, but it's a good way now. I won't be gone forever, just need some time away. So thanks Traveler, CtHulhu, KMCINVA, concerned_husky, learning2luvme and Rich1967.

Update: In the two months I've been gone I've made more progress. I have started to tell my family and that is not easy, but it is FREEING. Not done with that yet but I've started, and I have the strength to finish and get through. Also, I am starting a group thing through my church. That was something 3 years ago I could never have believed I would do, but I will be doing it. We can be free, and live life the way we were meant to live it. That's all for now and I hope you are all well my friends. Thank you for checking in on me and for your support. That means a lot to me on this journey.
