Okay. I have talked some of this with someone who posts here, but just kind of wished to say it here, to everyone.

I am very much FOR this forum. I think it is wonderful that there are people like you all here, who are willing to help us survivors. I know that I would be dead without my friends and support, both online and in 'real life'. So PLEASE know that you are appreciated, not only by the survivor in your life, but by others as well.

I do need to say this though. I am like the 'feast or famine' thing at this forum. Either I am not here but for five minutes in a week. Or I come here, spend several hours in one day or night, and respond to a lot of different posts.

This month has been crazy busy for me! (Actually, that will slow down in May, I believe!) And this last week or 8,9 days, has been very hectic, with a lot of travel and 'work' (I put that word in the '' marks because it is not like I work so hard! haha) But serious, I have not been on computer, last night I worked at catching up on email and PMs here, and had well over forty to respond to. Just am now getting to be at forum, for brief few minutes!

So, I just wish to apologize some, for not responding so much at this forum recently. But, I am a male survivor. And in my mind, if I have an hour to respond to posts, my priority is other male survivors. So that is the forum I will go to first. Normally, I will come here second, and then go to unmoderated or off-topic forums, and others. So, that is why I personally have not been here to respond so much. It is not something personal against anyone, or any group of persons, not at all. It is just how my mind and emotions work when I come here.

I am hoping that is all right. I guess if not, well, oh well! ;\) It is STILL how my mind and emotions work!

Wishing you all well,

leosha

Leosha,

You're awesome. Don't change a thing! Your heart and mind are in exactly the right place.

Hugs,

Lynn

Leosha,

Thank you for taking the time to read what we say and respond to us at all. Whether it's every day or once a year. I've recently said something like this to someone else here as well but I'll say it again. You and all of the other men who reach out to one another here are already doing a great, brave thing. To take the next step and reach out to the friends and families of men who sometimes aren't even a part of this community affects me in a way I can't even explain. YOU are appreciated, not only by the friends and support in your real life, but by us as well.

Peace
Sar
