    Throughout my time on this forum, I've witnessed some ups and downs. They range from amazing success stories, to some truly stupid posts from members who are thankfully not with us any longer (ahem, GG anyone?!)....

    I first joined to research CD, and having spent time reading thread upon thread i "joined the club". I started posting to distract myself from food never really expecting to stay around that long. However, i made some great friends, found some inspirational people, and felt like part of a community of people who were struggling to find their feet in this world.

    So here i am, a few thousand posts under my belt, having made some great friends (and some enemies :D), and I have something to say:

    The support i have received has taken my breath away. Some posts and PM's have brought me to tears, and i have no way of thanking you. I've been having a rotten time recently, and i've had SO many emails, text messages and PMs full of care, worry and hugs for me - it's shocked me.

    Minimins was all just about "cyber-support" (omg, that sounds rude) but usernames quickly turned into real names , which in turn began to belong to faces. I'm passionate about this site and have proved it a few times as a few of you know, but unfortunately as this is an internet forum i can't come and give you all a hug to say thanks.

    All i can do is explain that you lot mean the world to me, your words have kept me going.

    Mini, Pierce, and the mods - Diolch o waelod fy nghalon :)

    As for the rest of you,

    I haven't been on minimins long but in the short time I have been here I can really relate to your comments Leah. Can I also say that your warmth is felt in your posts and you have a wicked sense of humour. You're a star.

    It is people like you that make this site work......we are all going through the same thing, you yourself are very supportive and you probably dont realise you have more than likely made someones day much brighter.
    Minimins is one big happy family and its people like you Leah that make this site work.

    At 4.00am Leah, are you up early or not been to bed yet?

    Working is good, but sleep and rest is important too.

    Please look after yourself :)
