God, there are so many people in here and outside of here suffering through varying degrees of sorrow and heartache and health problems. I feel it. I
feel so damned helpless to improve anything for anyone and it is so frustrating.
Hi. You're right...a lot of people are suffering.
But you do more than you know, Night. Your loving support helps a lot of us feel less alone...and loved.
I wasn't online tonight because my friend Tracy messaged me that she was feeling suicidal so I told her to come over.
I let her talk...offered my advice...made lots of tea, popcorn and pastries and put Mamma Mia movie on in the background. I told her I loved her and
was here for her. She just left and texted me when she got home.
This is what she wrote to me:. "Hi I am home. Thank you so much, you saved my life and stopped me from cutting. You are the best friend a person
could have...love you xoxo".
This isn't about me...it's about how we all need someone to be there for us sometimes...to care about us and listen to us when we are feeling lost and
alone. We need each other...we can't do it alone.
I send my love to all of you and thank you for being there for me. I thank you for sharing your heartbreaks and pain with us, and for trusting us
with your most painful experiences. This is what true friends do.
I'm sorry so many of you are suffering and I'm also grateful that you support me through my struggles.
WIS I will email you in the morning...I'm tired now but happy I could be there when someone needed me tonight.
I'm sharing this because it doesn't take much to help a friend as long as you try your best to let them know they are loved and they matter.
You are all important to me and you help me when I need to feel like somebody cares. So don't ever think you're not doing enough...you are making a
difference and even maybe saving a life.
I hope you all have a good night and I will check back in the morning. I will try to get more emails sent...as long as we keep caring and supporting
each other we will make it through the dark days.
Love to all...hope to talk to you soon.
