    I must say I am impressed, as my expectation was for the forum to have 2000 members by the end of 2007, not the half way mark. So people know, I don't market this forum, I don't build links to it, I do nothing in regards to my prior field of expertise, this forum has simply built itself, and for good reason I want it to work that way... so that the forum remains focused and can build at steady rates, not radical ups and downs that throw the forum into chaos and turmoil.

    Still though, impressed to say the least, and a huge thank you to all members who make this forum what it is today... the worlds leading PTSD community, so I have been told on many occasions. Get told something enough I guess, you tend to believe it.

    I just wanted to throw in a "Thank you" for the site. It was just a random search I had done about PTSD- and found you all. Again, thanks for the site.

    Congrats Anthony. I will say thank you too! This place certainly teaches you there is no short cut to healing any aspect of this and never hides it is a long hard road. I would never be where I am today without the blunt and varied advice here. I still have more to do but damn I am not lost or scared anymore to do it. I see each step adds up. You did wonderful setting this place up for us. Great work!

    Oh... Congratulations Anthony, all the moderators and Super moderators, and The PTSD Forum! I totally like the fact that you let this forum build itself, rather than marketing. I came across this while searching PTSD for myself. If people want to be here, they will look for it and find it as I did. No need to advertise.

    Hey, maybe everybody should post what they love about this place the most? As a toast to it, the members, and Anthony's work??

    Well, I will do this anyway... the thing I love about this place the most is that there are so many people just like me. For the first time in my life, I don't feel abnormal here. And people generally STAY here too.... and it's a place that is entirely dedicated to confronting PTSD, as well as supporting people which I think is unique. When people reply, they do it genuinely here so every post is meaningful and not a means to get their 'posting rank' up as I have seen in some forums I used to be on as a teen. And I feel like I have some friends here. I am even meeting up in person with another member next month! This is not 'just a forum'. It's a part of my life.

    Thank You.

    Anthony,

    I too would like to THANK YOU for the great job on this site. You and ALL of the mods have done a terrific job. I love the fact that it's so open to discussion on everything.

    I found the site by doing a search too. I looked a at least 10 before I joined this one. I am so glad that I did.

    Thanks again for the great job!!!!!!

    Congrats Anthony! Thank you for starting the forum and thanks for everyone who contributes and helps themselves and others.

    I found this site completely by accident. I had searched through a number of other PTSD sites and came away disappointed and even more confused. I remember putting in the words 'PTSD, fear and dread' into a search engine and a page from this forum popped up. I read it, printed it (I still have it) and then read some more and then joined. I felt at home and welcomed almost instantly. Like Lisa said, I didn't feel abnormal here. What a relief!

    I've learned more about myself (and my PTSD) in the last nine months than at any other time in my life. Dealing with my traumas and learning to manage my PTSD...I know I wouldn't be as far along in my recovery as I am without having found this forum.

    Again, thanks Anthony and thanks to everyone for your help!

    Lisa

    Thank you to Anthony & everyone that contributes to this community.

    I noticed that it has been 1 year today since I joined & I have learned so much during my time here. I know I would have struggled trying to help my husband (nugget) without the information & support that I have been given since I've been here.

    It's a great feeling to know that we are not walking this path alone.
    I once heard a quote that said, "If you hear footsteps behind you it is just your friends walking the journey with you".
