Default Thank you for being here

Hi:

GalaGirl here. I've been enjoying the posts for a long time as a lurker, but started participating as a poster this week.

DH and I began young and I was the poly overlappy person. Although he was free to see others he never quite did.

Fast forward through time, and my other rships were reaching natural ends (school, work, geography, etc.) DH and I were deepening and I had major health issues so it seemed like a natural time to close down to just us while I sought my dx.

DH and I are not looking -- still remain closed as we raise child. We really don't see it opening up again (if it opens again) til she's grown because between her and my chronic patient health status and now eldercare added on top as we age and our parents age... plates here are too dang full.

So while I'm still dealing in my health probs -- I'm feeling a lot healthier than I have in years. Much more so than I have in a long time!

I support my mono and my poly friends in whatever configs they want to be in real life.

So I thought I'd finally start posting and try to support those here too -- a way of giving back since I lurked for so many years.

I remember the struggles I had as a young poly woman and I'm pleased Internet can help bridge so many gaps! I wish this had been here back then too.

Who knows what kind of wiring my kid will end up at, but I'm grateful that should she feel poly like her mother, HER young adult life will have a little more support.

Thank you for being here, and for existing.

GalaGirl

Thanks - it seems strange to be welcoming you when I have been reading and enjoying so many of your posts already!

Glad you find this place a comfortable place where you can join in the discussion.

Welcome!

I know I said so elsewhere, but am happy to say again:

I'm very much enjoying your participation here.

Sorry to hear about your health challenges. I have lived with chronic pain since 1989 (or so) and have bunches of diagnoses. The longer you go, the more opportunity to collect coping tools.

Thanks!

Bummer -- that you too have to know living chronic patient land. Wouldn't wish it on anyone for any condition. Ugh.

Hope you are doing well in yours!
