I am an old-timer, though not as long as some, and remember the abbreviations we used. Now I can type Gift from God but when I hit enter, the words magically change to something I didn't want to write. While my son used to be and still can be "difficult", he is no longer what I would call a difficult child. And while he has been a challenge and we have been through hell to get him where he is now, he really truly is a gift because he has taught me SO much, including that I am a lot stronger than I ever thought possible. I also miss the terms like warrior mom, rhino skin, juju, donning our armor (needed when dealing with schools primarily), and even Star's "nekkid chicken dance". I'm glad to see there are still some of the people here that I remember. This board helped me keep my sanity when we were at our worst and gave me SO much strength. I miss the "old" board but love that this one is still here. Guess I'm feeling a little nostalgic.
