To The Hearts Of JLand

After reading comments about the last entry, I feel an obligation to make something very clear:  Without you having asked about my off-the-cuff answer in Kathy's Tag, I never would've bothered to write about my "Prison Within" and so - without a doubt, it is because of your incredible friendship and care, your interest and trust, that I found the courage to write about this event.  I know it never would've come up otherwise, but so many asked about it that I felt a need to be true to my Journal and my friends here, and scribe it down.  It is YOU I thank for allowing me the outlet for this memory, long in coming and which caused such anguish during my years of clinical depression, which I also wrote about because I trusted you all so much.  Maybe you don't realize the good you do, maybe you feel it has no effect, but let me assure you it's your constantcy in caring that brought this about.  For that, I have no way to thank you but this, and I hope it's enough.  You've all become so important to me.

Cathy,
i have just read this entry and your last one, and I think you are so courageous to tell your story in all its full horror. I think that the paedophile is the worst sort of evil person there is. To have come through such experiences as you have and to raise your family so well tells me that you must be an incredibly strong person.
Kate.

Cathy, it's amazing how people you've never met, except through their comments and their journals can leave such an imprint upon your heart.

I have footprints all over mine, and wouldn't have it any other way!  :)

Hugs
Jackie

I like you....you are funny, articulate and kind to me...thats about all it takes with me to be a friend.....to come to your J and have you spill your guts to me and others means so very much. It sure can be a stress reliever too...to get out the cobwebs of sorrow and pain and set it free.
HUGS and LOVE,
lisa jo

.....and you are as equally important to us hun!

Your story broke my heart yesterday and I found myself thinking about it a lot earlier today..I can't shake it!

For the sake of your journal, I wont say what I want say (as it may offend some), but let me just say that I've been calling these 'men' some vicious names!!

Be well me dear, and always remember where I am if you need to chat!
