my concern is that it is there for me primarily, but also for any newcomer to MS to make a connection with.

I have had a few PM's from newcomers who have idenitified with my survivor posts, it's a great opportunity for someone to make the first step towards healing, to PM a survivor who will hopefully guide him thru what to expect from MS and how to proceed.

I think therein lies the value of the public survivor forum.

Hey arronb;
I truly appreciate your reply. I see you can understand were I'm coming from. I apologize for venting a little. Didn't mean to get carried away. Not something I do usually. You articulated exactly how I see the Survivor Story Forum. Arron; much appreciated friend. I feel better already.

No affliction nor temptation, no guilt nor power of sin, no wounded spirit nor terrified conscious should induce us to despair comfort from God.

Today well lived...makes every tomorrow a vision of Hope.
