I have been a member of this board for almost 2 years. I get to read far, far more than I ever have time to reply. I love the bits of personalilty that you can pick up online of members. I love hearing about your children. This place is like a refuge where other people understand the deep dark places of parenting a difficult child child. Sometimes I will read daily - then if we are in a "good spot" ......sometimes coming here is a painful reminder of how delicate the balance is .....how the next day will bring a challenge like no other. I just wanted to say from the bottom of my heart - you all matter. you all are important. you all have more than once been the thought in my head that other parents deal with this too... I CAN do this. With Blue's new diagnosis of DID - I am in a dark place right now. I just feel so lost and scared. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to offer support to others, to offer advice and encouragement, and sharing your stories.
