      It was so nice to see your message today! :) I just want you to know that most people who read what we've written don't leave a response for one reason or another, even if they care and what you've written touches them. In fact, only one dear friend leaves responses on my diary! ;)

      I have read all of your trauma diary and I just wanted to tell you what a strong, brave, and wonderful person I think you are! **Hugs**

        Thank you so much... That really means a lot to me :) Sometimes I wonder if anyone is reading, so thank you for taking the time to do that and to write to me, and for the encouragement/positive feedback--I don't get much of that so it really helps me a lot :) Hugs back :)

        Hi, sorry for being so slow, ((((Alex)))). Too much stress, not enough sleep, as you probably know already. How did your operation go? Are you OK? Thanks for writing to me on my journal, I know how tough it is for you and you must have put a lot of time and effort in to it.

        I say "sneak" because what's blocking you is like the big bullying kid no one really wants to play with :). So you go around it/him instead :).

        I am very sorry about your long term T dying in the car crash :(. As you probably know from reading my diary, my long term T (14 years) is dying from terminal breast cancer. It sucks to lose a T that way :(.

        It is true what you say about not wanting to lose more time to the old stuff (P.S. please correct me if I misunderstand something you say.) I'd like to wave a magic wand and "poof"! It all goes back where it belongs and we can live happy and fully functional lives in the present.

        Sometimes my partner gets frustrated with that as well :(.

        You are not invisible Alex, and I don't want you to fade away. I like hearing what you have to say, no matter what it is. (((((Alex))))) I hope you are having an OK day today.

      HI, Phoenix! I like your 'name'. Great metaphor for coming 'out' of PTSD. We can conquer, or at least quiet the 'demons' if we refuse to give up. I just wanted to say thanks for being the kind of person you are. It comes through in what you write, and with it, your general good attitude. It all helps.

        I know you have been a big support to Alex along the way as well (I am so glad that she has not been completely alone dealing with this all this time) so I suspect you are very similar to me :)

        Feel free to post any time or post something in a conversation with Alex and I (if she is fine with it, so am I).

        I have seen some of your posts too and you are a very supportive and kind person, in fact it was through your conversations with Alex that I learned about what she was going through, and saw who she was as a person. I am glad to "meet" you (lol, such as it is online). :) :) :)

        Thank you for the very kind words, and I appreciate them a LOT! Thanks also, for seeing what kind of person Alex is. We've only become friends around 2 months ago, but I knew right away she is good, trustworthy, and suffers more than I think I could bear.

      You are a true sweet heart! Thank you, and you HAVE come so far, too - just look at all that you wrote that was so warm and encouraging and accepting. And then look at how fast you can write with much heart and flow. Now that is amazing (stole from you) to the "New and Old Me". As for your diary I will hit "like" on posts to let you know I'm listening, even though I might "not like" how bad you felt. Ok?

        No, it really doesn't make you look like you are lying, sweetheart, and of course you are upset and sad. I can't imagine how anyone going through what you are could not feel that way. You can talk about your struggles with me, I understand what you are saying. Please don't stop writing. It really sucks that in order to get well you have to lose so very much :( And you don't have to say sorry ((((Alex)))).

I was intubated for a week, but this Fri the doctor removed it. I hope that speaking will help TBI head read and write. I have been reading your diary - keep writing and walk your path.

        I love all ov whut you wrote, but truly needed 2 hear this: "I think your post from before, were just fine. I am glad I got to read it before it was "fixed". I personally do not think it needed fixing at all, and I think it was very clever how you went about doing it." I know they r not perfect (copy), but I thought most cood read them. But I do fear copyin wrong word, bcuz words can hurt. Rise P, Rise! Hugs 4 U!

      PR, I can only manage to say thank you for now from my heart to yours. My language and speech abilities come and go with the treatments. I do not know your story, but you are an amazing delight to me. I just read your touching post many times. And each time I cried. As you said, it is hard to see my mind fail but I am humble by such endearing support. (((embracing you and your heartfelt post))) I am blessed!
