[UPDATE] For those who were there for me...In the hardest of times...

I want to thank the most amazing group of people I've encountered on a forum. I posted last year about my story regarding my abusive parents. All of you came in and gave me some really hard-to-take advice, but I took it and heeded it. I have not spoken to my parents since having cut contact and though, there were 2 (poor) attempts made by them to contact me via e-mail...I remembered to protect myself, first and foremost.

There are some hard days, still. But, I always remember to come back and re-read both of my threads you guys responded on and it has SAVED me. This forum has saved my life. Though, I don't know anyone; I am truly grateful. Coming back to the advice that each and everyone one of you took time out of YOUR day to help this girl out...puts the biggest smile on my face.

I've found a new 'hidden' voice. I'm not completely out of the woods...but, I definitely have seen that light at the end of the tunnel. And I have to say, life holds more adventure now more than ever. I faced my ONE and BIGGEST fear: Standing up and saying NO to abusive, controlling parents. I walked away and I never looked back. What I got at the end of it? Happiness.

Thank you guys! You guys are amazing.

Well shucks ma'am.

All grins aside, it is lovely hearing that we've made a difference, more importantly that you're doing so well.

Ye know, the best way to thank Mumsnet is to pay it forward: be there for the next crop of people needing help. smile

Thanks, aubs. Glad to see your nice update.
Whenever you have a wobble, just chuck some more of that cat litter over the balcony and move on. wink

I am glad you are doing so well, aubs...and it has only been a few months. You really are fabulous and courageous, and strong and honest.
