2 years ago today i did one of the scariest and most self-helpful things in my entire life. i posted my intro on MS and started actively participating in the forums. this place and you fellow-survivors have made a huge difference in my journey toward recovery and wholeness. i want to thank you all for being here and bravely putting your deepest secrets out there so that we all may learn and grow from the interaction. and to anyone hesitating to jump in and start contributing - DO IT! you will thank yourself 2 years from now.

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.

I'm right beside you brother. Just know there are times after reading some of your posts that I know I would have to strain my neck to look up to you. Not everyone will understand this, but I know you will. I have been amazed by your strength and have seen you standing eight feet tall. I hope you know that others, including myself have gained much from you.

Much Love,

A Traveler once gave me a marble; a reminder of the boy in me that survived.
It's okay to find the faith to saunter forward
With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you'll breathe easier just knowing
that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night
have set you on dry land

I have received so much encouragement and supporr from you in such a short time. In the midst of your own healing, you provide so much healing to others.

Thanks for your decision two years ago and everything you've offered so many since then, and offered me, specifically, over this past month.

I always tried one thing:
To make what happened to me not matter at all.
Turns out, it was supposed to matter.
Who knew?

Congrats on that 2 year anniversary, Mister ! I can say without any hesitation that you have been a beacon for me.

...and Jude, I am going to listen to this video often... I sort pretended it was for me also. I am so glad I am here.
For now we see through a glass, darkly.

Congratulations on your 2 year anniversary! That is quite an accomplishment. I am fortunate that you found MS and have participated in this resource so actively. I have really benefited from many of the things you have posted and shared about. You are so caring and kind to others and have a rooted wisdom in so many of your posts that is so nice to read.
