I read your letter with fascination and concern for your friend. I thought of a friend of mine who suffers from depression and has to be reminded time and time again that she is a wonderful person.
Thank God for friends like you who really do care. I pray that you friend did reappear and that he is alright. -- thank you for sharing.

This was a great letter and I hope that where ever the darkness has taken him he can read this and fight his way back. The painting is very nice too.

Frst dear Sasha let me
say this was a wonderful
undertaking that wrought
many an emotion from this
reader.. a few correctioins
my friend:
"He is 100 percent disabled [for=from] post traumatic"

suggestion= put his quote in quotes--I find it inspiring that his favorite quote is (')Everyday is a Good Day(').

You are a true friend,
I hope the person you are
trying to reach has the
opportunity to read your wonderful
loving and caring letter.
Thank you for trusting us enough
to share this with us. Lora

As sufferers of PTSD ourselves we can identify with you both but can only imagine what schizophrenia would so to a person when it is added to their burden.We too pray his demons are sent to hell and they stay where they belong.

Love and blessings

This entire tribute is awesome....
I apprecaite you not only sharing his history, and what he goes through, but also yours.... This makes your letter to him so much more inspiring..... It's funny but we don't even have to know each other... to "know" each other....
It just takes some common ground and a little love...
Good for you... This is very inspirational.. Bryan

A beautiful letter. Spoken from the heart. I hope you have sent this letter to his mailbox.

I had an aunt who suffered from schitzophrenia. Not a comfortable illness. In those days the treatment was massive sedation. I don't think I ever really had a chance to know her in reality, without the sedation. Pat. xxx

    There is still very little that can be done other than medication which has similar effects as what you describe. Yes, I did send it to his mailbox. I can only hope he gets it.

This is so touching, Sasha - your
words pulling at my heart-strings.
My middle son is a Psychotherapist
and has mentioned this disorder.
My heart and prayers go out to your friend.
I take it he is on FS - I must look him up.

I would ask Him why he - cap H for He
knowing his plan - cap H

Without you, I feel sadness and I fear (you) may be gone forever. - add

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for catching the spags too. He is a sweet person and I hope I am overreacting.
reply by Margaret Snowdon on 25-Aug-2010
    I see he hasn't written for some time - have you no other contact with him other than here on FS? M
reply by the author on 25-Aug-2010
    No. I seem to be the only one he ever PM'd but I never got his email address. He would occasionally disappear but never for this long. Again, I hope I am just overreacting.

Hi Sasha,

This is such a personal, heartfelt write that it is really difficult to rate. No amount of stars can soothe your troubled spirit as you wonder and worry about your friend. I can relate to your feelings as I have friends whom have been in similiar circumstances and it is so sad to watch them suffer throughout these experiences, but please keep your faith intact and keep praying for this man. We might not understand things at this time, but someday we will. Your write is very touching and I hope that he might read this and send you recognition. Thank you for sharing.

Becky

    He is a man of strong faith and that helps me understand that hopefully in time I will hear from him again.

    Hopefully his faith will bring him back into your life soon. I will add him to my prayer list. Bless you and have a great day!
