No, Supersleeper is not the wizard of oz, but he is quite an amazing guy. His real name for those that do not know is Superguy.
I read a couple of threads yesterday from folks that have had their lives changed because of this website. There are lots of those stories around here, mine included.
I thought about this all night. Yeah, I know: I don't really have much of a life. But what I was stricken with is that because of Superguy's dedication actual lives have been saved. Not merely improved, although that's certainly happened many many times, but literally saved.
How many people have visited this site over the years because they were at a "last resorts" place? How many were helped by the so very many people out here that have come over the years to lend encouragement and advice? ...and how many people as a result succeeded in their therapy rather than ending up asleep behind the wheel one day as they pass a school bus, or not quite making it to the ER in time when their stroke hit, or any number of things that are not a possibility, but a redirected reality?
You know, he doesn't do it for the independent wealth it generates. Actually he takes more out of his pockets than he can ever put into them. He does it because he's dedicated to this task. He isn't doing it because he has a private supplier business and is using this as a customer support tool. Nothing wrong with that. It's just that Superguy doesn't have that.
He must simply love what he's doing. This must be his way of giving back a little of the great blessings received from his loving God. It's his "tithe" to humanity.
If you look through the messages over the years you see lots of names of very active members who have come and gone in support of the site. Very few have been here for very many years, but some have and they need celebrated too. So watch for them, and give them a shout out "thank you" too. For those of us that haven't been around all that long, the shoes to fill are not just big, but huge.
It is my personal pleasure to do what I can and donate what I can to Superguy in support of his great quest. Please join me in this.
