Thread: Confession

  1. #1

    Default Confession

    Hi y'all! I wanted to apologize for not being around to support everyone here the way you all supported me for years and years through our long IF journey, Natalie's diagnosis with Spina Bifida and her birth and NICU stay. Life has been busy and the journey with Natalie and Spina Bifida has been hard and wonderful all at the same time. I think that I just got behind on updating about her and now there is just so much to tell and explain that it would be so hard to get everyone up to date. But.... that's no excuse. I want to try to come back and be active again. Honestly, I need the support and I really miss hearing about all your little ones and offering support to ladies who are STC/TTC. Hopefully you all will have me back.......

    I did not ... I just really did not want to get mixed up in a drama. So I just backed off ... I only recently started posting here more again. I was just an "APA reader" for a while.

    I stalked your pregnancy a bit, but mostly hung out on the oct 2011 board until those groups left. So I'm not aware of any drama or even know who kimmie is. Im a clean slate ;)

    I hope all is going well with your sweet girl. I have a Natalie too

    I think that Kimmie sowed her oats and reaped her just rewards with all the crap she spewed about anyone she felt like was smarter or classier than her and anyone who didn't/couldn't see through her is no longer around

    Glad to see you posting, Robin! You're definitely one of the "oldies but goodies" I think of fondly when I think of the years I've spent on APA getting and giving support

    Even as an old-timer here, I actually don't know of anything that Kimmie did or said about you. I do know that I would not have believed anything that she said, though, on here or any of the other boards she posted on. You are welcome to post anytime.

    I am of the opinion that support here is kind of like the "have a penny, take a penny" plates you see around. If you have some to give, feel free. If you need it, take it. It is not something you need to pay back, no matter how much you appreciated it or needed it at the time.

    I come and go a lot and it's always nice to see a familiar face from way back when. I do believe I stalked your STC journey quite a bit!

    oh... my drama with Kimmie was outside of APA although it involved a lot of people who were also on APA.

    I am glad to see you back.

    I think Kimmie has a lot of her own issues, that cause her to lash out, I really wouldn't put much stock in any of it.

    I totally missed ALL the drama surrounding Kimmie, so I have no idea what happened, who said what where, etc. Your signature pic is a bright spot in my day whenever I see it.

    Welcome back! After the birth of a child it is so hard to go back to the way things were. I am happy you are back and I can't wait to read more about sweet Natalie.

    I don't think there's a poster on here who isn't interested in what's going on with you and Natalie. I'm glad you're back and hope that you can find time to post. But you know what? If you have to take breaks because life gets in the way? That's totally fine. I can't imagine anyone faulting you for that.

    I love reading your posts whenever you can make them! I like what Lydia said about the "find a penny take a penny" dish. And I have no idea who Kimmie is but that's OK-drama makes me tired and I have no time for it with 4 kids 5 & under!
