"Whenever the sisterhood is brought up, I get these pictures in my mind of me, as the wicked step-sister!"

Oh Shaney...you make me laugh. I am thankful for the part that EVERYONE had in that time of my life. I learned SO much about myself. I have to say this...if it weren't for what happened with the sisterhood, well, I really don't believe that I would be where I am today. My life is SO different than it was 15 months ago.

I thank YOU for a part of that...All of those little pissing matches, made me grow. Made me see my weaknesses as much as my growth...my comfort. It might have hurt going through it my friend...but, that was ALL necessary for me to wind up where I am. I don't believe that I am alone in that either. Did you learn anything? I KNOW that many of us did.

I love you Shaney...for the tough and the great times that we have had. You are a special person, and have a special place in my heart. Thanks for being you, it is sweet to know that someone will hold on through the good AND the bad.

Oh, I've learned a lot... you know that. There is still more to learn though, for sure.

We've been pretty successful at developing some lasting friendships on this site. I know it's been hard at times, but it's been worth it. I was just telling Sini that you're practically a pro at creating new friendships. I'm hoping that you will share some of your wisdom, and that those we care about, like sini, will stick around to absorb some of it.

Hugs to you as always - Shaney

Hey Isis...

I just want you to know, I have written out a letter to you. It isn't really long, it just explains a few things. But, I am waiting until you are here to post it. Then I know that you can read it when I post it. I don't want it to get lost among posts or anything else.

So, when you are around, and you have a few minutes to spare...just hollar...

I will be around most of the night. Give or take a few minutes. J is bowling, and he is taking the oldest to sell Girl Scout cookies (anyone interested??).

I will be here with the other three...but, I will continue to periodically check to see if you have appeared.

I love you girlfriend...and I hope that school went alright for you today. All I have done today is schoolwork. Jay took the kids and went to the kids museum so that I could study in peace. That was kind of nice.

Hey Chickie- I just posted this over on Libs in Shaney's house. Just letting you know I'm home!

OK ladies...

I'm BACK!

Geesh, what a freaking day I had.

You were correct Shaney- I was in school.

And as soon as I got home, I had to run my two youngest boys off to Boston for hockey practice. My husband usually deals with the boys and I usually handle my daughter. However, today, he went to her game because it's not until 9:00 tonight. I'm just too wiped out to be travelling from Boston all the way back to Cape Ann. I have to work tomorrow- another 12 hour shift. Grrr....

School was grueling today- I was assigned to a real pip of a grumpy old man.

Anything that could have gone wrong did go wrong. I was on my own, and in the end, it all went very well.

He's a very difficult patient, but in the end he took a liking to me, and wants me to check back in on him Friday. That's pretty good, considering he tosses just about everyone right the heck out of his room.

Hi Sini, it's a pleasure to meet you. I am a Susana- half Greek and half Jewish. I know, what a mix! Everyone just calls me Susie... with an "S", not a Z!

So, Miss Michy, what gives? You OK? Been thinking about you, and noticing that you've been sort of quiet lately.

Talk to me babe- I'll be around. Laptop on in hand, chilling by the fire.

(((My ladies)))

Love you all,

Isis

Isis,

Well, obviously I have put a lot of thought into what I am doing. It is a scary step for me to take I think.

But, that said, not as scary to me as staying here. That seems REALLY scary to me as well. I have gotten to a point that here, I believe that the negatives outweigh the positives. Which is sad…there have been a GREAT number of positives here on my AAC journey.

There are things about the site itself that concern me, and things about my ability (or lack thereof) to be able to talk anymore without the fear of what is to come. My lack of feeling safe at this site is my cue, that the distance that I have come with AAC is over. I almost at times see myself moving backwards. That makes me really sad.

That said, I will always be able to read AAC, and get what I can….and leave the rest. I have never seen a site quite like AAC before, BUT, there are MANY sites out there. If I need that…I will find it. I found myself carrying a chip on my shoulder, an attitude within my heart for other posters here. I think that prohibits my growth…and theirs. Again, proof that my AAC days need to be over.

SO…with that in mind. I wasn’t willing to leave without this. I love you, and I care about you. I wish NOTHING but the best for you. Our friendship will ALWAYS hold a place in my heart….always. BUT…if you so wish to carry it on from here… Mystified76 @ yahoo. Com is a way to contact me. Now, I know that just ended any chance I EVER have of posting again. But, it was worth it to me. I don't think that you would be sorry..for MANY reasons.

I love you Isis. You have a way to find me…I will still love and respect you the same as I do today regardless of your choice. It is an option. My days here are really over. Hope to hear from you, love you regardless. Thanks for being my friend, thanks for ALWAYS supporting me….You have made a difference in the life of a woman.

Mandy

Mandy,

I am so blown away!

I'm having a hard time articulating what I am feeling.

I will miss you.

I get a good feeling knowing you're on your way- good vibes.

Seriously.

I'm so happy for you. Your journey is just beginning. I get the feeling that you are confident in your self, in your convictions, in your decision to move on. You've become so strong. You've learned so much.

You just needed unconditional love and support- and resources. I am so thankful that you took that from our discussions and ran with it.

You can do it, I know you can. If the going gets tough, you know you have the resources to back you.

You are not alone- always remember that. Help is but a phone-call away.

In closing, I just wanted to share some thoughts with you.

I'm truly sorry that you feel that AAC is no longer a safe place for you. While it's not always easy to understand, it is important to remember that we are all in different places in our recovery. Some of us are more thin/thick skinned than others. There are so many people here that mean well, however, their delivery of advise and feedback at times can come across as judgemental and insensitive. Often times we all don't see eye to eye. Often times people project their own stuff onto others. It's all a part of the journey, of healing, of becoming stronger. Of getting well. We all want to be understood, we all want to feel loved. We all heal in our own way, on our own time. There is no right or wrong way.

Always remember that.

I am truly touched that I have have made a difference in your life.

I hope you continue to read. Who knows, I just may share my story in it's entirety some day. Right now, it still hurts as though it were yesterday.

Take care my friend, stay strong and march on.

Love you always,

Isis

I LOVE YOU ALL....but, I had to do this....

I had to.
