About a year ago I had some major health problems, and found myself in a situation that was about as dire as I've ever encountered. I didn't want to say anything about it at the time, but a member here convinced me that I needed help. It was a very humbling experience, to say the least.
The outpouring of support was as amazing as it was heartwarming. From the smallest contribution to the largest (monetary, written or otherwise) was appreciated more than I can express.
You will never know much it meant to me and my family. You not only helped us financially, but removed so much stress that I'm 100% convinced it's part of the reason I'm still here. How can you thank somebody enough for that?
The Warrior Forum is a social outlet, school, community and so much more. It is THE best forum out there and I'll arm wrestle anybody who tells me different (not saying I'd win, but don't push it! ).
A few weeks ago some Warriors were nice enough to tell me I was getting a bit too cranky and mean-spirited. The thing is, I was noticing it, too. That's not my style and I apologize for acting that way. However, upon reflection, I think it was because I was thinking of how wonderful everybody was a year ago. In other words, the outpouring was so personal then that I was taking things personally a few weeks ago.
However, if somebody comes in here and starts insulting my firends, and slams the WF as a whole, then yes, I have a problem with that. Okay, sorry, I'm getting a bit off track.
Well, it's been about a year and I'm doing great. Again, having much of the stress removed sped up my recovery.
Anyway, I know this is a bit rambling, but it's something I wanted to say. I know I have fallen short of using the right words. Let me finish by saying the way you Warriors stepped up will never be forgotten.
With my deepest gratitude,
