|09:09 pm - public, like a frog|
I did a little tidying up of the "friends" list. You know me, I hope, and of course understand that if you truly feel a personal loss at being deleted, for cryin' out loud, tell me. I'm keeping this to real friends primarily, those who support me and believe in my life - people who actually visit me, talk to me, call me, and smile when we pass on the street. If you're just here out of interest in my writing, don't worry! I will make plenty of public posts for casual readers. But my closer life is for real friends. I am eliminating hatred, snobbery, judgmentalism, and... nastiness as I can, as I gratefully renew my life, Baruch HaShem for giving me life. My gates are always open: who am I to shut doors on someone so much like me?
I figured it'd be an act of honesty and love to delete non-friends who are simply "watching" or may not even read my entries at all. I just made it through a cluster of days in the open sea without a piece of wood, even. Now I have a piece of wood, B"H, and I hope to get strong (110 lbs on me is NOT GOOD. Lost my frog fat!) and get busy writing pamphlets to help sick people. First in line: Absolutely Feeble Oral Care for Those Weaker Than a Puff of Smoke. I have a system! I have so much to do, and I will do it.
Carla and Beth will continue updates for friends as I recover brilliantly. Please try to eliminate all traces of ENVY, RESENTMENT, and HOSTILITY between you and me, some of you. I want peace, and it's inappropriate to wallow in corrosive feelings. It's as bad for you as it is for me, so let's knock it off and be happy.
Current Mood: grateful

I'm glad to see you posting again. I tried to get up to Seattle to visit but couldn't get off work :(
Edited to add:
I hope you got the card I sent - sometimes San Francisco's post office seems to eat my correspondence.

It's good to "hear" your voice. I'm sorry not to see you yet--I've been struggling with a cold for days and didn't want to bring that to you.
Good to hear from you. I'm grateful there are people around you who are helping. I'm sorry I'm not one of them.
Is your phone working? I texted you once, but didn't want to flood you with messages if you weren't able to read them.
Good to see you're posting again - and I'm honored to have "made the cut".
I haven't said more because I dont really know what to say...but I do try
to say supportive words (which I mean) and I honestly have been hoping and praying that you'd be ok.
I'm glad you are back...

I have to admit, I half expected to have been pruned; we've kinna lost contact over the last few years. I mean, yeah, I'm glad to see you if we pass on the street and I DO read your LJ, but we seem to be in difference scenes these days...or at least different parts of the same scene maybe.
But I'm glad I made the cut, regardless. Contact or no contact, I'm glad you exist, for what that's worth. :)
Some day, you are really gonna have to let me come over and entertain you.
It's SO wonderful to see you feeling well enough to post!
So happy to see you posting! :)
To continued brilliant recovery!
Are you back home, or did someone bring you a laptop? Let me know where you are so we can visit some more.

You're the strongest fighter I've ever met or known.
Good to see you back at your writing. I hope you have many more chances to practice it.

I REALLY need that help with a "Pay Pal" type button page for organizing support in the form of dollars to make up what insurance won't pay Baily Boushay. I'm desperate.

I was hoping to be able to come see you in the hospital, but I am glad that I *won't have time* (because you will be out and home before I can, just to be clear).
From me to you there is nothing but hope, joy, and love.

every time i see your face on my friends page, i am grateful...
i feel honored to share even this long-distance friendship...
i demand G-d to make you feel wonderful NOW.
Seeing *you* post made my evening! I have been very grateful for Carla and Beth's updates, and to be in the loop, so to speak.
"Spring cleaning" is good on many levels, I'm glad it's good for you too. :)
Also, during the week, I work at home and am usually pretty flexible with my time. We have a car now and am just a couple minutes north of the UW, so if you ever need or can't find a ride, please let me know?
