    Nobody ever remembers me. But that's okay, I usually forget about myself too :)

    Glad things are going well!

    Shauna - I read your first post on this thread and wanted to give you a big hug, now that I read your second post I really want to give you a squeeze. How eloquent and encouraging. Thank you for taking the time to pop in and congrats on your new life. ~Robin ~

    Wow, how fun this is to "see" some of you again. Of course I remember you Mouthy and Seeker. Gopher, good to see you too! I got a pm from Harmony (peaceloveharmony) yesterday too. What a blast from the past!

    Last night I was telling my husband about reconnecting on here and it brought back a flood of emotions and memories I hadn't thought about in a quite some time. During those early years this site (and others before it) were so important to my healing. I found people who knew exactly what I was going through. I read your stories and your experiences with family and friends and many times felt it could have been my own story. Having that support and knowing that someone KNEW your pain and struggle, made it so much easier.

    But I realized last night that more importantly you all provided a sense of family I had lost when I left the Borg. In that time when I no longer belonged to my family or that organization, and I still didn't know myself well enough to truly belong to was to all of you that I felt I belong. Having that security, even though I never met most of you in person, gave me the strength to move on. It was if I had this Board to fall back on if I needed advice, encouragement, a slap across the face, a shoulder to cry on.

    This oddly enough feels like a family reunion. But a good one!

    Anyone know what happened to Englishman or some of the other old posters I mentioned?
