Dear [...],

Thanks for answering my question.  How awesome is that, having your energy back?!#$%@!  How wonderful.  It definitely sounds like your fibro diagnosis was off.  I'm delighted to hear your burning pain is gone and that your hands are recovering along with the rest of your body.  Your story is none other than astounding.  Your writing is pure and clean.  Maybe pitch your story to Harvey Weinstein:)  I for one would love reading your book or seeing your movie script on screen.

I'm relatively new here and [...] struggling and really appreciate your support and see that you are well loved and for good reason.  Keep raking those leaves and enjoying the simple beauties in life that are infinitely precious.  That's what all this pain has taught me.  I will be forever grateful.

Hi again, [...],

I must be awfully thick but it only just dawned on me that the headings for your blog and your success story integrate so perfectly.

'Free Flipper' with the sequel of '[...]'s Freedom'. Brilliant!

Hello Dearest [...],

You stated "you promised" that you would post your Success Story, and you did.  Thank You is such a minimal word for this forum, but that is what I must write, with much gratitude to extend to you for writing this.  This is so important for one and all on this site, and all the dear ones behind that will come on board, and you know that.  Each one will read, sigh, and say, if this gal can do this I can also!! You established your history to help so very, very many!

Whew, with Kleenex is what I say to you.  The journey you shared that you traveled is so very important.  This showed the desperation of that deep valley, though, what that inner strength is all about and how you prevailed all of it, with the emotion and physical damage from it........ to one thing "GETTING YOUR LIFE BACK"...  From that deep inner strength and fight within.

I'm in awe of so many buddies on this site.  One by one each and everyone of you amaze me.  After being on this site for 3.5 years plus, I have followed all of you.  You, Miss [...] you were one.  Your humor always caught me... I saw the strength from you to all others, and I knew in my heart you would attain what you have.

My blessings to you always sweet [...].  Just know you will be the most wonderful therapist!  You go for it girl!  All the blessings to you always.

Love to you always,

[...]  :smitten: :smitten:

Hey [...] just did a bit of a look offline late arvo here and was super stoked to see your name in the success stories.  I want to say a hearty congrats to you was a truly emotional read as you were one of the first people I ever met around the time I was finding out truly what a benzo even was.  Your kind and helpful to all who have crossed your path even though im not around anymore I will always remember you.  Your story was so beautifully written im so happy you are back to life.  Please live and enjoy every single moment and stay in that moment and embrace it.  Life is such a wonderful gift each and every day is so precious.  Well here's to you lovely lady enjoy a beautiful life.

Dearest [...]

I am so moved by your Success story that I can't even properly organize my thoughts.
I decided to write a little now and write more as I feel compelled to.


You can sure that this story will help a lot of people for as long as this forum is going.
Ok I truly have a lot more to say but can't get it out now.
My eyes and heart are running over, but I am tongue tied.

You are really an incredible person [...]. My deepest admiration.
Love Carol

Hi [...],

Such a moving success story. I'm so happy you've healed from all that pain...and I'm glad you're not leaving! We started here about the same time and you've been such a voice of reason for me. I don't post much, I'm more of a reader...and the older generation of BBs are where I find my solace. As this thread shows, you're so important to everyone here...you've been a tremendous help to everyone and I know you'll be a great counselor! But I'm just thrilled you're not leaving...the people here have become part of my family...

So happy for you...it gives me hope.   :)

Dear [...]  :smitten: :smitten:

I started reading your success story and my heart was flipping. Tears were running down my cheeks remembering all your suffering and how sick you felt during this ordeal. How you described your tortuous time and everything you had to suffer until you found the help you needed made my heart ache.

But then I started reading how your life started to changed, how little by little sometimes barely noticeable you started to feel more alive and then mixed with the tears a smile showed up in my lips. I'm so moved, so happy, so proud of you [...]. I know how hard the taper was for you. I had the privilege to walk this path with you. You taught me so much, encouraged me when I needed, made laugh when I was sad and God we laughed  :laugh:. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart my friend.

My heart is now singing with happiness for you. I'm glad all those freaky diseases your doctors told you had are gone. I'm glad you are living your life fully again. Geez "living our lives" was like a dream for us, remember? That was our number one goal, well that or feeling well enough to have a shower  :laugh:. And now you are living your life and that is something you fought so hard to achieve. I'm happy, just so happy [...]. You made my day and I'm celebrating it with you. Thank you.

Thank you, friend for posting this. I know it will greatly help those members who are struggling just to get out of bed. We fed in these kind of stories during our dark days. Congrats for having the fortitude to go back to school to have your master and for wanting to help others. You'll be a marvelous therapist. With all your experience and knowledge you'll change many lives like you did here. You are a very special woman and I feel so blessed for being your friend.

I'm so proud and happy for you.
Much love and many hugs from the far away.
Laura
