have you or anybody you know here on ask have had their life changed for the better because of other members....?

i know mine has.......

Report as

Yes, my life has changed for the better. If it wasn't for Ask, I would never have met Truckerlady. I never would have met Mr. Faded Glory. I would not have had the opportunity to help Cheese stop hurting herself and start talking to her parents. I would never have come across the great people on this question and those who aren't. 8) I hope that some of my answers have helped changed someones life for the better too.

You never know. I thought Mikale was crazy when he started on this site. Then he made me start, then of course I was hooked. One day Truckerlady needed someone to talk to off of here...I took a leap of faith, I couldn't imagine my life without her now, she's like family.

Swallex, ask members offer support friendship & validation. There will be a day when you think wow what an amazing person or piece of advice & then you will link ask friendships as a part of your day. They may not make a dramatic difference to your life but unknowingly you may make a dramatic difference to someone else's & that can be what forms a great ask friendship.
Report as
Oh yeah hawk, I made an attempt to introduce myself but both attemps got removed -_-

I would have to say my faves are koichan, Blades, sincerity & Australis. i like Doddgy for his sense of old guy humour & wisdiom. I have just recently conversed with Shayjay Lady wood & Hawkman & they give good answers too. Alot of others that I also follow give good advice so no offense to them.they are all great too. Whenever I have a moment I like to see what others are up to. Because we have different time clocks we sometimes walk in each others shadows or they follow in our ask footprints always trying to catch up to each other but not always being in the same place at the same time. You are all wonderful kind careing friends & who knows we all may stay ask friends for years to come.

Well thank you, Kaz. I had a smirk at that comment about "old guy humour" because I'm well-aware that humour varies from generation to generation and often wonder why so many people let me get away with it. It's nice to belong to a site where I can prattle on ... and it's nice to know so many nice people, if only via the Net. :)
