    Hey everyone..
    Hope you are all doing well, I didn't post or comment in a while and I wanted to come back to say thank you and goodbye.
    You guys rock!! After I was diagnosed I simply needed people to talk to and I got that here.
    Over the past few months I've done lots of reading, I joined an online DBT support group and got the opportunity to meet amazing people who are struggling with similar issues. I am probably going to add a second weekly therapy session and I'm also looking into a psycho playback group.
    I told three friends and a cousin of mine and I'm happy I did, I got support and love from all of them (all though they don't live in my city and I am basically on my one on a day to day basis, it's still comforting). I made a great deal of progress over the last few months and I feel that I got all this community can offer at this point , I also hope that I contributed a little from my one.
    I know I'm on the step of an interesting and painful journey, but I am actually quite excited. I really believe that I could have a promising future one day. It's a daily struggle and I'm sure I'll have my down moments but I think that the outcome will be good.
    I have an account on experience project under the name storm 224. (Btw U guys were right it is too messy and it's kinda hard to track who's who. I check in there from time to time and if anyone would be interested I would be glad to exchange emails. Joy, hope to hear from u...)
    I want to thank you all, for being there for me and offering your support, love and comfort.
    Marry, I feel I should have a special sentence just for you .Your story is truly an inspiration for us all. From the little I got to know you I could say, that despite your horrible childhood you are a loving and caring human been. I am grateful for the advice, support and tips. Continue to be a source of comfort for the rest of us.

    Take care and god bless

    Thank you, Storm. I appreciate your comments. I truly don't feel better than anyone else. I believe that anyone who can live through abuse can come out stronger. I also believe that my walk with Christ certainly gives me incredible strength. I fall down a lot but I'm learning that getting up again is good.

    I deleted my account on the project experiment site. I could never get to any postings! I've never seen a site quite like that. I believe that their effort to support everyone was the downfall. Too much stuff, too many lost indians, and most likely too many chiefs!

    Have a good life my friend. You will always be welcomed with open arms when you drop by for a visit.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.
