Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: BS: Healing thoughts & prayers please
There's something I've been wanting to say for weeks, but words like 'mawkish' & 'maudlin' keep getting in the way, but finally, here goes.
         In high school I was bullied incessantly from the age of 12 until 16. The physical pain is long gone, but some of the psychological wounds remain unhealed to this very day. Gradually, over time, one by one, my 'friends' deserted me. Understandable really...if they were seen fraternising with me, they got beaten up. Why am I writing about this? Well, all You Good People reading this have become/replaced the friends I lost (And never regained). I know the circumstances are completely different, but it's your persistence, loyalty, compassion, love & humour...qualities I have always looked for & treasured, that you bring to me every day via this thread. It's strange yet true that a large group of people, most of whom I will never meet, have become the dearest, most trusted Friends a man could ever wish for. May the goodness You bestow on Jane , Ann & Myself be reinvested one hundredfold on your Families & in your Lives.
       With Love to our Rainbow Crew,
