    Hello Grandy, I can't thank you enough for your support and in having some confidence with me, but it goes both ways and you only reply to those who thoroughly appreciate it.

    Your help on the forums has also been invaluable to those who are struggling to find an answer to this most intrepid illness that suddenly appears out of nowhere.

    Thank you and my very best.

    Geoff.

    Hi everyone -

    I would like to acknowledge Quirky's efforts on this forum. I have spent a fair bit of time reading more threads today - and my goodness Quirky has been across them all today with such kind and helpful messages. It is heart warming to see and I am sure means a lot to every one of those posters reaching out for support :) So a bouquet for you this Xmas day Quirky :)

    golden82,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I always feel that I get more support from others here than I give. I do appreciate you taking the effort to thank me. I can smell the bouquet and will treasure the thought.

    I want to thank every nice user here who I have talked to over the time I've been on the forums, offered me advice, etc. and just talked to me and been kind. It means a lot. There's way too many usernames to list but I appreciate everybody here and I hope to chat to more people and build more friendships. So from me to all the forum users, thank you.

    I would like to thank Sleepy21, in my path I have found her to be one of the few that listens and offers support over the long term, others that have engaged tend to drop off but Sleepy is always there, and even when she is down she still manages to care for others, you’re a beautiful person Sleepy21, I wish there were others like you.

    Hi all, I was just browsing through the forums and found this thread again, I think we should post in it more.

    There's too many members I'd like to say thanks to and I'd have to get the usernames, but I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has replied and been kind to me on here.

    Hi mb20lover,

    I agree with you. This forum is overflowing with people who care so much for others.

    So many people deserve acknowledgement.

    Thanks to everyone who reaches out to others. Cheers from Dools

    I agree doold and mblover, people are so kind.

    I have noticed

    People on their first post using it to help others

    people who even though they are low on their own thread still find time and energy to support others.

    People who drop into longer threads regularly just to say hi and see how people are.

    People who have endured so much pain and heartache yet are willing to talk about it to others.

    People who are struggling but keep posting and asking questions

    People who dont post but read other people's post

    People who are always ready to listen and support

    People who find it hard to find words but still reach out

    I am sure there are other behaviours on the forum I have missed out but many people fit into more than one of the categories.

    I just want to say thank you for saving my life. I didn't realise I left mobile data on, and when things were about to go bad, i saw an email asking for a chat. Thanks for saving me from being a number on the news.

    Hi ypla

    Thankyou for your heartfelt post. Our moderators are super caring people who reach out to the many people doing it hard. You mentioned on another thread about being scared. I replied and understand where you are coming from

    You are stronger than you think....If we didnt have new posters like yourself the forums would cease to exist. It takes a lot of strength to post on a national forum ypla. It took me weeks to get the courage to post when I joined Beyond Blue in 2016

    you are amazing

    my kind thoughts

    Paul
