I’ve wanted to message to them, but I was nervous that I would appear like more like someone trying to promote their own blog than a complete supporter who is just trying to connect with other Club members that I respect. I’m sure they get tons of messages from people, I didn’t want to bother them with another one from lil ol’ me.
Well, Tuesday I decided to extend a hand and introduce myself to a few of the people that I’ve been quietly following in the shadows. I’ve graduated from silent stalker to a known admirer and fellow “molemate”. My parole officer will be happy about that (I’m kidding, I don’t have a P.O.…or do I???). This makes me super stoked. Facebook is awesome like that. It allows you to connect and chat with people that you’d probably never meet in your everyday life. I guess that’s also the idea with eHarmony, or any dating site, though I’ve never been on them and never intend to.
Out of the three people I sent messages to, I got a response back from all of them yesterday. All of them…in the same day. I totally cried. The hubs was looking at me like I just read about a death or something and I tried to explain that I sort of “know” these people in a strange way. These are Melanoma warriors that I look up to. I’ve read their inner thoughts and now they’re reading mine. I woke up super early this morning and while lying there I thought about each of them, smiling at 4am like a disturbed insomniac. I’m still smiling, so very thankful that I finally mustered up the courage to say “hello”!
