Dear Hillary and Brad
I have been here on bubhub for 5 years now. I cant believe it has been so long ... and I havent posted this.
I just want to say how incredibly amazing you both are, and how much your website has changed me as a person.
When I came here, I was trying to conceive and having a very hard time. As you know, infertility is very emotionally draining, and was something that I had a really hard time talking about to people in real life. I never told anyone what I was going through ... I couldnt even talk to my husband. But on here I found people who understood. Who were going through the same, and who I could talk to and share with.
I was then diagnosed with Leukaemia, and had to deal with that, and the fact that I would never be able to have another baby. It was without doubt the most difficult time in my life ... and I never could have imagined that I would find so much friendship and support from people I had never meet - and probably never will. I found so much genuine friendship, love and understanding ... it made a HUGE difference to me and how I coped.
I will never be able to express how much that has helped me, and the difference in my life that those women made. The difference your web site has made to me.
This web site has helped so many people with information and assistance, with support, with friendships and understanding and discussion. I know that you have put your heart and soul into it, have worked so incredibly hard to make it as great as it can be for so many, and I just want to tell you how very much I appreciate everything.
Having now come through the other side of my own difficulties, the reason I agreed to be a moderator, and the reason I have stayed ... is to try and help you to provide that to other people.
I had the most amazing time this weekend, and I think the both of you are truly incredible people who I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to be involved with (although I could have lived without the image of Brad in his lime green mankini )
Thank you both so much.
