To my Angel EyelinerAndCigarettes,
You are my sunshine on a rainy day, I can’t tell you how many times you’ve saved my life just by being on the phone with me, holding my hand, your smile, your laugh, your happiness means everything to me, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’ve brought my heart to life, you are the reason I breathe&the reason my heart beats.
We’ve been through so much together, some things other people would never come back from, but we have, we pulled through everything & we are always going to love each other; that’s priceless.
The memories I’ll always cherish & hold close to my heart, because after all, you are my heart, you own it & you hold it close to yours.
You’ll always be my number one, my one & only, my love of my lifetime, my girl.
Thank you for everything you’ve done & continue to do for me.
I can’t wait to be with you again & hold you & kiss you & look after you & to just, be with you.
I love you baby girl, & that will never change.
All my love,
Your Fiancee, Sarah.

To all the people who hang on the Binging, overeating and related issues board. You are all amazing, thank you for all your ongoing support and advice. And thank you for a great meet in london.

Oly, you have been the best friend I could ever hope for and I love you lots :) . I’m so proud of you for passing your OU course and starting uni and I know you will do very well for yourself in the future.- XbeckyX

To Miss Anonymous,
I am so glad that I met you on here and that we got talking by PM and how our friendship has blossomed from there. I have few friends but I’m always told that quality is better than quantity and you sure are quality!
From our letters to each other and our phone conversations which can last an hour and a half but we don’t realise the time speeding by! You have given me far more than you will ever realise. You bring rays of sunlight into my darkness. I would do anything for you if I possibly could. Friends forever!

Love you lots, Liddy xx

There are a few others of you out there who have offered friendship and support to me in my times of need.
Thank you so much, and I won’t forget the hands you reached out to me when I needed it.

To MissAnonymous :]

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you’ve ever done for me, you’re a really wonderful person & I am so glad we’ve become as close as we have. You’re a beautiful person on the inside and out. You’re a star, and no matter what happens, you’ll get through it. And I’ll be here whenever you need me. <3

Love, Shauna
I’d like to send a big lovely shout out to Liz [Purple Rain] for helping me through, well, everything since I have known her and always being there for me any hour of the day. She is an amazing person and I am SO PROUD of her for getting the support she needs recently too. Basically she is amazing and I love her to pieces :)

I love you to pieces, you are truly an amazing friend. You’ve helped me more than you’ll ever know and I wanted to thank you for that. I know things are hard right now, but you’ll get through it. I love you! Keep fighting. I’m always here if you need someone.

Love from,

Yourockmysocks is one of the most thoughtful and genuinely caring people I’ve ever met. She’s given me a lot of friendship since I joined here; she stuck around and listened when even coming to this site felt like talking to a wall. I want to say a big old thank you to her for that. She’s a terrifically valuable person, and an asset to the site. <3- Bane (heartless)

Love, hugs, and glitter to all my Queendom ladies & ECI’s. Love you all!
