Wow.

I checked my inbox earlier and all I can say is, holy shit. I literally had no clue there were so many of you still out there caring about me and my family.

Thank you.

If you left a comment, please make sure I have your email address because that's how I have to give you permission to view.

Like I said, I don't have a computer or Internet, however, I'll do my best to post at least once a week... For me, this time. I need to let go of this stuff. Writing has always helped, but knowing there are people out there who genuinely care and worry... That's incredible medicine.

It will take me a bit to add everyone and then we'll begin, I guess.

Take a deep breath with me and I hope some of it still makes you laugh. Never, ever a dull moment in my world.

I know in the past you've had your haters, but surely you remember that you've had more folks that truly care about you. I hope I'm on your list to get in on that secret handshake!

I hope I'm in on the letting-in as well. I don't really want to post my email address publicly tho, so how can I contact you?

Hi Crystal,

I've been following you for over 4 years without commenting. Not sure how I got here but you were posting parts of your novel about the special boy. I've grown with you and understand the struggle with depression. I'm hoping I can support you through this new journey.

MM.

There are tons of us still out here, still reading, still floating around. The haters come and go, but the real people are still here.

Hi, I'm happy to see that you are back to posting. I've missed you. I'm also a long time reader. I think I've commented a few times but I would love to be able to keep reading. And I promise to comment more often. My email address is mpyle12 @ cox dot net.
Thank you and I look forward to reading your writing again.

Hey Crystal! I hope not too late to comment. Viewing at work on my phone makes it hard to comment sometimes. I've been a reader for years, enthralled with your stories about your oldest son and all the rest. I am so glad you'll be back at it again and hope to be able to read. I have a livejournal for the private stuff and it is soo nice to have a "safe" space.

Long time reader, first time commenter. I too would like to keep reading, but I also don't want to put my email in the comments as it has my real name, please let us know how to get this to you in another way.

I've read your blog for quite a while and I'd love to move to the new one. I never remove my favorite bloggers from my Google reader, just in case they reappear. So glad you're one of the returners!

Vixen said...

I found a "draft" link on my blog that pointed to a post on your blog and I started reading here again - I'd like to be able to read your new blog, pretty please? Scalvak@gmail.com :)

Dizzy Ms. Lizzy said...

I sent you an e-mail, Crystal. I felt more comfortable doing it that way than posting my e-mail address on here. :-)

Crystal..I've read your blog for a few years, and have commented in the past. I started it late and went all the way back to the beginning. I so identify with you about the depression. I'm glad that you are posting again! I hope that you add me to the list of people as I'd like to be one of the people cheering you on! Kris

I'd send an email and try to be all anonymous but my email addy is linked to my blogger profile so that's pointless. So here ya go: homefrontsix at yahoo dot com

I used to read your blog way back when and then drifted away. Re-found you when I was cleaning up (and hopefully reviving) my own neglected blog. Hopefully I can learn the secret handshake too :) It's good to see you back.

Hi Crystal,

I began reading your blog around the beginning of the crazy chronicles. The honesty and humor you used to work through your experiences spoke to me on a deep level. I enjoyed following your writing after the chronicles because of that honesty. I would love the opportunity to continue to lurk, if you wouldn't mind!

All the best,
Kathleen
