A Moment to Say Thank You

Robin, Val and I just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who contributed a bit of your story to Crying Out Now.     This community has grown more than we ever could have imagined, and it is due to the unbelievable women who come and share their truths to help themselves, and in the process help countless others.

And to all of you who comment - thank you, too.   It helps to know we're not alone, and your support, empathy and insights mean everything.    

We wanted to take a minute to tell any of you who are out there reading and thinking about contributing that we'd love to hear from you.    Simply email us at    You don't have to be a writer or a blogger.   Just speak from your heart. 

If you have contributed before, and would like to contribute again - please do!   We'd all love to hear how you're doing.

We get a lot of feedback from contributors that the experience of telling a bit of their story is cathartic, therapeutic.   We get even more feedback from readers who tell us how much knowing they are not alone is helping them.

If you're feeling shy or uncertain, just drop us an email and introduce yourself - ask questions, get to know us a bit.   

We'd really love to hear from you, and thank you.

-Ellie, Robin & Val
Co-Moderators, Crying Out Now


  1. I don't think I ever mentioned it, but I came to you via Maggie (Okay, Fine, Dammit), who I have been online friends with for a couple of years now.

    Thank you, the three of you, and all the contributors, for being out there. Perhaps one day I will find the energy to share my story as well, in the hope that it will help someone as you guys have all been of help to me.

  2. Thank YOU GUYS for having this space :) It's an incredible space.

  3. I need to add my thanks to you three, as well. This site gave a good strong push to make some changes, and even though I've faltered, reading about others' experiences helps shore me up and makes me want to try again. And again, if need be.

  4. Yes, thanks for sharing this space with us. It REALLY Does.
