KatieB Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 It's good to see so many here- especially during such difficult times as loosing some friends and special members. It's easy to be discouraged and it's hard to be here during these difficult times...but I always try to remember that SO many people need us, and at this time we need them...and we can hold each other up. Remember earlier this year with the loss of JudyKW and others...how hard things were and really they were never the same?.....BUT had we stopped posting and coming here adn encouraging the new members, Susan/CurlySue50 wouldn't have received help and encouragement that she needed...She wouldn't have had the courage to go to Hope Summit in washington Dc or share her story or take larger steps in her life....She wrote me a long letter and I just got it yesterday from her daughter. I also spoke to her husband last night..... and I wanted to share this one paragraph for you. THIS is why we must still post...for all the other members here, for each other. "I am trying to learn to not let my fears and sadness rule my life. I have had some very positive moments in the last year. LUNGevity has had everything to do with that. This is a safe place to express myself without censoring my feelings to spare others. Because the survivors here DO understand how I feel. Thank you so much for that, Katie."
