I got a PM from Warrior Woman

  1. Hi everybody -

    I got a PM from WW, and she asked me to post something about her message, so here goes.

    She's very concerned about her physical health, and who can blame her? She's still having the chest pain, and she says that her appointment with the cardiologist keeps getting rescheduled due to screwups in the office there. She also sounds very very tired, anxious and depressed. Her mother has been ill for quite and while and she lost her father unexpectedly!

    I, of course, was unable to resist writing a bit of advice, but I know that's not what she asked for or wanted.

    Anyway, I think that what's appropriate for this forum is continued prayer and support for her. I wish that there was something that WE could do other than that.

    So..... I don't really know what else to say. I know we're all pulling for her in our own ways, and I hope that gives her strength and the will to go on.

    Like Dennie said, we are pulling for her in our own ways. There is only so much we on this board can do and we have shown support and continue to do so. Posting the same supporting words and words of the same advice over and over and over and over again on multiple threads is just that - words. Yes, words can convey thoughts, words can convey emotion, words can convey support. All of us have benefited from the kind words expressed on this board many, many times and will continue to find solace, comfort, and cheer from each other. The hard truth is neither I nor anyone else can fight her battles for her over cyber lines.

    Hopefully she will heed the multiple offerings of advice and utilize the resources she has to get the help she needs.

    I will of course continue with my prayers and thoughts of warrior woman , sadly I am all out of advice and am tired of regurgitating the same advice that I've dished out lately....
    so my thoughts and prayers she has, always will have those ...
    she also needs some medical attention and some emotional support from someone other than people miles away who cannot offer more than their thoughts and prayers..
    I posted this in another thread, and wanted to post it here too.

    In any given relationship, there must be give and take. Yet, there are some who continually take from this board. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with coming here for advice or support, or to report something awful and be in need of kind words. But there's a problem when this is the only reason someone comes here. When all you ever post is "this is the latest installment in my life, doesn't it suck, show me some love," and you never give anything to anyone in return, or offer anything else to the board, you will literally suck the life from this board.

    There comes a point when the tragedies are so frequent, the stress so unburdening, and the task of healing so great that we cannot help here. Yes, we are a family of sorts, but we are not to be mistaken for real life support systems. You say you don't have them? Then get off your computer and find them.
    I also want to say how manipulative I feel it is to burden someone you don't know very well with this information and ask them to post it for you.

    I talked to her on Christmas Day and she sounded very very tired. I hope she is okay.

    Damn, Heather! Those were YOUR words? Nicely said. And Vegas, tactfully and pleasantly worded, and I echo both of their sentiments.
