Hi Glenn <:)>

I really hope that everyone else who was involved in the kerfuffle yesterday sees your apology. It's a very brave, honest and humble person who can do what you've just done and you have my utmost admiration and respect for it. I think the lesson here is - let's all agree to disagree!

Love
Susie

That was a very impressive thing to do, Glenn. Thank you.

I am also sorry for getting so cross with you. I will try in future not to get cross on the forum regardless of the situation. It was wrong of me.

Glenn,
You have a very good heart and you have in no way been a fool.

This isn't always just about alcohol ( in fact I think its never just about alcohol) and the strength of BE is in providing a safe place to think and discuss all sorts of things with others and with ourselves.

If how we got here involves religion then I'm sure its fine to discuss it and I'm sure no-one would seek to limit a discussion which is helpful to you at at such a critical point.
I know some-one who's parents were in the Plymouth brethren. He's a very successful chap with huge responsibilities but this start in life ( and the suicide of his sister who could never come to terms with it) still causes him periods of intense anguish and possibly always will.

I don't think we should feel we have to 'edit' with a view to what others may think when we post our feelings on things which are fundamental to who we are and I'm sure no-one else on the site would seek to do so.

Sue, my daughter loves High School the Musical too and she's 17!!

Just like the song says, we are all in this together and we are all here to help and support each other. Can we please draw a line under all this now? The board is being taken over and it isn't good.

Glen, I have to stand up and defend Bupster. I think she is a great moderator, amongst the others, and Im always blown away by her knowledge.
