For the first time in my life, I'm lost for the words for expressing how much this site means to me! I found EP by mistake, by typing in "I am lonely" on google, one night, in tears. I was so depressed, lonely, angry, and had so many faux friends around using and abusing me. And I just needed to vent and to tell my stories, to people who would care and respond with kindness. And honestly, I almost didn't join, thinking this community was a lot all the other web-communities out there, so full of mean and selfish people, where no one understood me.
But, I'm glad that I joined and I'm so grateful! Thanks to the many wonderful people here (who I hope will be my friends forever! :-D), I felt for the first time in my life that I wasn't totally alone! And my thought that there was so little nice people in the world, and the world held nothing but darkness, have been changed! I know now that there are quite a few GOOD people still left in this world.
So, thanks to the creators of this place, for coming up with such a wonderful idea! And thanks to everyone who have been kind to me and understood. My depression is now at an all time low and I met some of the best people in the world here! I love my EP friends! You guys and gals are true friends, indeed! ;-)
