The old-timers around here will recall that the last three years were hell for me. No sense beating around the truth. I tried to not whine, but there were definate times that I couldn't hold it in and VBers were often subjected to many threads of me being thirty seconds from a breakdown.
Well, I want to let everyone know it's over. To use the analogy of being in a dark tunnel, then I am clearly in that light at the end and the tunnel is behind me. It's been like this for a while now. I was afraid to admit it because I thought the tunnel would come back. But it's really gone and I regained my footing. It's much harder for life to kick you into the dust when you are standing firm, instead of already having your face in the mud.
Thanks to the people who sent PMs or gave encouraging words during the difficult time. There are too many of you to thank personally.
Ok, now the mushiness is over, let's get back to whacking stupid people.
I'm really happy for you, Krista! Although I don't know you as well as I'd like, you seem like a great person. And remember, whatever doesn't break us only makes us stronger--so I'm sure you came out of the tunnel a stronger person!
I am so choked, I had to just put a smiley in beteen paranthees, coz words failed me... but if I choke and die thru being over the moon, then that is a just cause in my opinion........oh wait I think I mean *stoked* I can praise you and stay alive! and be guilt free in gratuitously congratulating you without any Krista comebacks!....much like a *love Krista amnesty* Very well done coming thru your dark times. *shakes your hand, risking that I may become hyper too by the sheer Krista vibration*
