So the Forum Family awakens to a new day, a New Year, and a new beginning
Hope is ephemeral I know. Here one minute, gone the next. But we, as a whole, have something far more solid to cling to. We have each other
The power of support from those who truly understand, who have experienced that which we go through and struggle to control, is beyond price.
How can this be? I was thinking about that, about you all, today. How can complete strangers be our lifeline, our support when loved ones, unwittingly, unintentionally, fail us?
Yes, we might hide from loved ones much of our true suffering for fear of becoming tiresome. But the answer, I believe, is we are not strangers in the true sense
We might not know names, faces, but you are me and I am you.
Each of us shares the experience of AD/PD, ergo each of us truly understands the other. And because of this we lay bare our true feelings
We might not agree on the self-help methods. What works for one might fail another. But the important thing is everyone reaches out to help and support each other
Fear and loneliness, feelings of shame and helplessness, the inability to cope all alone, are the foundations which cement AD/PD firmly in place
So the reaching out of others makes this Forum a special place. It is our place, our refuge, our support line.
So when I was thinking about you all this morning I was not hoping, that being hard to sustain, but willing you one and all, to make a fresh start with renewed energy and belief
Let's all let go of last year with all it's ups and downs and heartaches. Lets all move forward and make this a great year, a healing year.
Together we can do this. Strength in numbers
We have each other to make this possible!
Day one, Forum Family!
Onwards and upwards
Love to all
