Yes, you lot are bloody amazing. The school I work in has a motto- "together we can" and I thnik it's a motto we should adopt, because on here, together we can and we bloody well do. I am stronger because of you, yes all of you! HONK HONK.xxxx
Thanks for this thread, it's nice to celebrate the camaraderie of our board. It's been a tough few weeks on MNSN, it seems, and while we can be a bit prickly sometimes I really value the friendship and empathy from you all.
Yep a very very BIG thank you to all of you. It's this board that made me realized the issue with ds2, this board that kindly confirmed that I wasn't going crazy, this board that gave the best advice re GP, CAMHS, going private. And this board that was able to explain me what I could expect help wise from the school.
I know for a fact that wo MN and MNSN, ds2 would still the shy boy that doesn't make a fuss and wouldn't be getting any support at all.
It is indeed a great board and so good to 'talk' to people who understand what you are going through. My big regret is that it didn't exist when DD was little (18 now) and I was feeling at my most isolated as DH was out of the house 12 hrs a day and I had no family nearby and my days were filled with watching Dale Winton on Supermarket Sweep and other such trash on TV
I agree. I have learnt so much from reading here. I am about to start the statement process with DD and am feeling completely over awed with the whole thing and out of my depth. But all along I've been thinking - it's alright I'll post on MNSN and they will help me work it out.
I don't post often, but I read a lot and it really does help
A lovely thread to see after some of the discord in the campaign thread.
I would have been utterly lost without all the geese on this board, to give advice, support, hold my hand and generally always be there, with a kind hand and a wise word.
It has been an awful few weeks, with ds in hospital and some serious concerns over his lungs, and as lovely as my rl friends are, there is only one who really 'gets it', but, as always my mnsn friends have been by my side.
Thankyou, especially lovely mnetter who called earlier to see how I was
Poltergoose: sometimes just saying 'me too' is enough to make a difference
God yes! ^ ^
If it hadn't been for this board, and certain posters particularly, I would not have started the most amazing help for ds, wouldn't have got such a good statement, wouldn't have had the strength to fight, wouldn't have known where to start with anything, and wouldn't have anyone to make me feel better just by knowing someone else 'gets it' too.
My belated new year's resolution is to try and give as much help here as I have received.
