I have had several friends here on EP since I joined in 2010 and they stay for a while and then I never hear from them again.
I have one friend, in particular, that I care about very much. I feel like she could be my child and we have known each other for a couple of years...
It keeps me a fuzzy feeling in side and makes me feel better about myself to know I have achived something.
I just can't help feeling sory for others when they have a problem. Just my compasionate side I guess.
