Being old as the hills here, some of my best learning moments have been from members that no longer come here.
PhyllisStein was a member who I debated with quite a bit on abortion many moons ago. Back then I considered myself pro life, but she made me realise I can not agree with abortion for non medical cases and still support choice - which I do, and that this is really pro choice. I think she also realised I wasn't some hateful nutty pro lifer, just one that was struggling with the topic.
The long term TTC girls - there are so many - Bel, Bunxx, Shrillian, Starflame, CinderElla and so many more. There were days where I could barely function I was so devastated over losses and not getting pg. I celebrate for those of us that have graduated and feel sadness and empathy for those that haven't
There are so many friendships I've made on here, some I've met IRL.
@Degrassi - I love the way that being a mod hasn't stopped your honest replies. You are polite and kind but you still speak your mind.
Gah there is so much to say for someone that's been here 9 years
ETA @kw123 while she isn't really active anymore, a thread she started about the WHO findings on breast feeding was the beginning of my healing over using formula. I've now come full circle and I'm 100% comfortable with my choices.

Bubhub led me to find someone who was able to help educate me on the ways of homebirth and breastfeeding. She was someone who was able to lead me to work towards healing my birth trauma from my first baby - I am still friends with her, and it's all thanks to bubhub.
Apart from that, I enjoyed Bubhub from a social aspect. It gave me a place to chat to others, namely other mothers, whilst I was stuck at home parenting small babies. I felt I could come here, have a laugh, but also enjoy some really nitty gritty discussions/debates with others, and I LOVED that. It really played a part in me keeping my sanity during long hours without other adult company.

As for bub hub love. ..the girls who I met through my DIG are amazing. Not many hang around anymore. These girls have supported me through so much stuff. Real life stuff. Full on stuff. They're my life long friends. 😙

I have loads of respect for you, so your comments do mean a lot to me (especially after some pretty negative stuff this afternoon).
I will be back to contribute some nice stuff tomorrow.

What a fantastic thread!
I have met some of my closest friends through BH and I wouldn't have been able to survive DD2 without them or being able to chat on here at stupid o'clock while begging a baby to sleep. 😀

It also reiterates to me just how lucky I am to have a happy marriage and be able to conceive healthy babies without any trouble, I'm probably more grateful and appreciative of what I have than if I hadn't joined bubhub.

I also sometimes wait until @harvs has replied to a thread before deciding whether to contribute, because more often than not, she writes what I want to say only more gently & eloquently than I could.

I love that I'm part of a community that what I wear, my lack of fashion and all that superficial stuff makes not one bit of difference. I love that it's a place where I can honestly talk about my kids and the bad bits not just the good bits and know that I will get advice. It's an online community that is more real than most of the interactions in my life.
