Thank You To Readers and Commenters

We want to thank each and every one of you that read or comment to our posts. You have no idea have much we appreciate those of you that are thinking of us or put us in your prayers.

When we started this blog it was a difficult decision to open ourselves to literally the world. As we grew to know many of you through your comments and your own blogs we have really felt a closeness and kinship in our struggles.

At times it is disheartening to know so much pain exists from parents and the addicts currently struggling with their addiction. But it is also encouraging to read of successes and the hope that exists out there over this scurge of addiction on the world. What is has shown us that this is not a local or US problem, this is a worldwide issue that doesn't have the focus that it needs.

A message to the drug cartels, the people supplying these poisons, the people growing and manufacturing this stuff, you are the terrorists of the world. You have destroyed more lives than a thousand 9/11's. Who am I kidding, as if they care?

Mom and Dad....I do know how you feel, I feel the same way about the readers/commenter of my blog. I have been at it for five years and some of them have literally become closer than my own family to me because of their unconditional love and support through life's trials.

Can I quote you on my blog? The part about the drug cartels? Its absolutely true.

I feel the same way. It gives hope to me reading the success stories of others and knowing than many of them have had the same feelings and difficulties as I have. It's nice to know that we are not alone out there.

Even now that My Kelly is doing good and I know that I dont have anything to vent about I still continue to read and pray for all the bloggers and their families, I consider them my friends!! and oyur right the drug suppliers, cartels, and dealers dont care.

Thank YOU Mom and Dad for opening yourselves up to us. Dad, you especially because there are not many brokenhearted dad's who share so openly. I have had my husband come over to the computer and read your words and they have meant so much to him. To know that he isn't alone either.

And Mom, your post on dad being your hero...that was so beautiful. Your blog is one of my favorites, truly. I hope you keep at it, because you are reaching a lot of families.

I have 2 friends in a similar situation with their son. I have another two friends in a similar situation with their daughter. It's frightening & frustrating. You've been an inspiration to me and I hope through me to them, too. Alcohol & drug addiction is a terrible disease for those with the illness and for those of us who love them. Thanks for sharing. I think that your reaching out with your troubles and solutions is helping so many others. I wish you well in this struggle.

I know how much damage I have done to myself and my mother and like I say I can;t change the things I have done I can only do good from this point on.

You are always in my thoughts and I hope all is well with you and yours!
