The fact is, this board is so full of compassionate, loving, empathetic people that it exceeds any group structure I have ever been a part of. While we may be crass about some things, you'll not find a more wonderful group support system than this. What we lack in political correctness is more than made up for in love. Real love from others who have been there and are there and will likely be there at some point.
