Beautifully articulated and very moving! This is a journey of rediscovery, of finding yourself again, and for that I'll be eternally grateful. Thank you for sharing a part of yourself here. It's a wonderful feeling to know that not only are you not alone, but also in the company of generous, like-minded souls. Much love. xox

You touched me too. Your sweet words hit home. I am wiping my tears as I type this. I ask not a writer although I would life to be one. But that is not my gifting. I started reading fan fic cuz I didn't want the Twilight story to end, I wanted more. I stumbled into fic and read some really bad stuff, but then I started finding gems. I didn't review at first cuz I never trusted my words and I never thought my words mattered. When I started reviewing, I never got a response until one sweet author told me how much my review meant to her. I met her on twitter and found others like her. When you said you found your pack, I can relate. I'm not alone anymore. My daughter laughs at me cuz she calls my new friends "twitter friends"and are not real. She has no clue.
I have been married for 29, I have 3 grown children. I feel like I'm on the side lines at times. You and others have touched my life and have enhanced it so much. I started sharing some stories with my husband (the really good ones w/o too much smut in them) and we started reconnecting again.
Thank you so much for voicing what was in your heart and in doing so, voicing what is in my heart.

You put into beautiful words what so many of us in this fandom feel. I don't know how I got so lucky as to stumble into this experience, but the resulting friendships I've made have been one of the biggest blessings in my lifetime.
Really gorgeous and honest and true. Thank you so much for writing.

Thank you so much for writing this - for being vulnerable and sharing your journey. Mine is much like yours, though it was post-partum depression that was the chasm overwhich the reading and writing of fanfic offered safe passage.

My Jelly, ScottishRose1028, rec'd this.
Becauase today is a day to celebrate love and friendship, you have so eloquently captured what amazing things can happen as a result from reading the words that appear on my screen (and at the right time) that express everything I love about this fandom and then some.
We share and grow into better people just from knowing we are not alone in our cray-cray loves and we can find at least one more person that is just like us, who has made it out alive (and better yet- STRONGER) after certain similar moments in our lives.
I love my h00rs for being true to themselves, we may not agree on 100% of things but we support each other and for me it helps when I adds more vigor in my stance when I am all alone in this world and have to defend my beliefs. I carry in my heart those amazing words from fics, author replies and beautiful words of encouragement.
I am a living example that sometimes the main message is not the one you should take to heart. My world has grown, my one dream is about to be achieved and my iPod (and heart) are full of more songs than ever before. To this day any reblogging of a post I originally posted or a mention of my name or SN still makes me squee with glee for days!
Thanks for reminding me that everyday as I walk in this world I smile brightly and extend my hand as a result of such meaningful & powerful acts of kindness- the words used to create these fics. I connect with them so much that I have had more breakthroughs than all of my old therapy sessions!
From fic to status updates to tumblr posts, to every author, beta and reader: Thank you for sharing your lives and talents. And thank you especially sweetie for this lovely post on what it is to be a member of such a great sisterhood.

Thank you for writing this!Huge, enormous, squishy hugs for you.
Squally posted a link and said it was a must read. I believe that once I finish this, I will do the same. Every woman, every reader, every writer... we all needed to hear this.
I teared up at your honest words, that is how close to home they've hit me. We all need to take care of ourselves and each other.
Happy Valentine's Day to you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words with us!

Katinki rec'd this in TLS and I gave it a try, I'm so glad you did. This was a wonderfully touching tribute to read on a day where we celebrate love in all its forms.
Thank you for writing!
