I can't believe I remembered how to log in...


Recommended Posts

And even had messages!

 

I usually log in once per year to give an update, and I will be doing that shortly as my RAD turns 13 in just over a week.

 

I'm not sure I should even share anymore! Did most of the posters I was familiar with change their board names or have most left? I don't want to barge in and share with people who will be thinking, "Who the heck is this?!"

 

Also, I have been thinking lately of Carpe Diem. She battled cancer and then I think she posted less and I left shortly after. Can anyone tell me how she's doing?

I think about you every so often as I have learned so much from your journey with your dd. Honesty, even if nobody was left that knew you, you have so much to offer that you should post anyways!

Denise, it's so good to see you again! How is your college girl doing? Did she graduate? I think she's a senior this year but time flies. I have a senior this year but she's taking an extra year to finish a second major in comp sci and a Japanese minor. She only had a few classes left in each and we encouraged her to go for it. She doesn't want to go straight to grad school and a bachelor's in neuroscience only sounds impressive. Good luck finding a job without a masters or Ph.D.

 

We just turned another loose this year and she's doing pretty well. Freshman year is tough on everyone.

 

Looking forward to your update!

Denise! :hurray:  :hurray:  :hurray:

 

Oh.My.Gosh. You have been sorely missed!  By Many! Your wisdom, your candor, your insight, your...ummm... no holds barred, "keepin it real" perspective, has been a collective breath of fresh air here since, well, forever! So ridiculously good to see you surface again. Please come back to this board...you have a mission, you fill a void, you are a voice that desperately needs to be heard...

 

Sharing is hard.  Sharing is courageous.  Sharing is what "good people" do to enrich the collective good.

 

I am a pediatric nurse, actually a NICU nurse, who has either quoted you, or paraphrased you, or your insights, for literally, YEARS!  You, and you alone, are directly responsible for enabling me to accurately share with a large number of completely uninformed, but almost certainly in "denial mode," people what a gritty, raw, real life in the trenches, type existence might well be in their future.  I am not exaggerating, when I honestly credit you sincerely, for saving far more than one life!

 

Not to mention, the serious hard core "old-timers" on this board, loved keeping up with your farm, your livestock, your kiddos, and just for fun, your overall sanity!

 

You are a WTM treasure with a loooong pedigree!

 

Welcome back, I hope!

Jen

:seeya: It's always nice when "waybackers" drop in for updates. I'm not one myself, but I recognize your name and avatar (your DH reminds me so much of my uncle) so we must've crossed paths a little. I hope all is well!

Denise-please share what's happening in your life.  My RAD "child" has moved on mostly but the outcome hasn't been wonderful, though far better than I used to think was possible.  I look forward to hearing about your life and your family.  

 

And I too have talked about your experienced with an RAD child to others, people who are unsuspecting.  You really have touched many lives.
