Hey, Amber. Has Anyone Welcomed You Yet???

I just noticed your post and thought I would reach out and
say hello and welcome. It's such a pleasure to see a Newbie
who early on displays the compassion and caring that our cyber family tries to maintain. Glad to have you aboard. DDD

Thank you DDD for welcoming me! I have not exactly posted a big intro letter, as it seems there are too many things to even mention! I just thought I would jump in when I see a post that I can relate to and encourage someone with. I am sure I will post in time my own dilemmas, but you know what is weird? I have been doing this solo for SO long, that I almost don't even know how to ask for help. It is something, however, that I need to do, and will be working on. I appreciate the welcome - and I look forward to getting to know everyone better.

Adding my welcome. I'm not a single parent but I can relate to not knowing how to vent and receive support, its much easier for me to try to offer it, I'm working on it too.

Welcome Amber,

I was single parent to difficult child from his age 4 to age 14. His bio Dad, my dex also has drug addeciton/alcohol issues and I am quite sure other issues, i.e. depression judging from the rest of his family. I think I may be able to relate to your situation. I am so glad you found this site-it has truly helped me out. There are so many wise and caring individuals here.



Welcome, Amber,

You found a supportive place to vent, seek advice, or offer your experience in helping others. Sometimes, I feel too overwhelmed to even know what to post about my own difficult child, but just reading and supporting others helps. Glad you found us!

Welcome, Amber! (Love the moniker, by the way)

This is one of best discussion boards I have ever come across. I'm glad you found us.

Amber?? Ignore me for a minute...lol!

Are any of you old enough to have read <u>Forever Amber</u> ???

Yikes, that was a book my Mother did not want me to read!

Thank you all for the awesome welcome! I am impressed already with the caliber and empahy of this group. I am sure I will be posting soon, as I have a million questions, and so few answers.
Oddly enough, my Mom named me "Amber" after the book Forever Amber.....??? I assume for the girls tenacity, and not the other sordid issues she was involved in...or at least I hope :tongue:

I just want to add my welcome too! It took me a long time before I felt comfortable enough to join this group. Now, I have to say that coming here has been one of the best choices I've made for myself in a long time. The people here are the best!!! WFEN
