Ellen, What an open, warm and heartfelt story and website--so much like I know you to be personally. Thank you for modeling a way of being that is honest, forthright and respectful when so much in our present culture is superficial, irreverent, and pretentious. Your neighbor, Patricia

there are so many sad people out there. like people who have the nerve to come to a site like this one and write crude and volgar things. i think this site is beautiful and to those who are just here to cause trouble, go some where else. no one cares about your stupid immature jokes, leave this site to poeple who appreciate it.

Ellen~ What a wonderful website! Quite eloquent and inspirational. It spoke to me on many levels. Thank you so very much for sharing, and don't you worry one bit about "not having a creative bone in your body"! You've proven otherwise. May God continue to bless you.
Wednesday, May 12, 2004 at 13:15:49 (GMT)
Hey Ellen - great site : ) thanks for sharing.
Wednesday, May 12, 2004 at 13:10:41 (GMT)
There are no coincidences. I was looking for the Ellen Degeneres site, and got yours instead.It was like reading my own life story. I even love snickerdoodles! They are my favorite cookie! LOL.What a wonderful site! Thank-you so much for sharing. Peace,Holly

Thank you for your site. I don't know how I came across it but we have such similar parallels, its scary. I was very young, 15, when I had my first and only abortion. I still grieve over it. I am now, age 30, going through a divorce. My first marriage. He is also an alcoholic and drug user. I am freeing myself of guilt right now. I attend therapy weekly and am reading, In The Meanime by Iyanla Vanzant. I am working very hard to love myself for who I am. I was also raised in a strict Catholic family. They have the most grief over everthing. But, I'm working on it and working with them. Thank you for your site. It somehow makes it easier when you know others have walked in your shoes.

ellen - i have read more. i also had two abortions and they have been a source of grief and shame for many years. thank you for sharing. unfortunately, one more similarity
Friday, May 07, 2004 at 18:58:00 (GMT)
ellen - i came upon your site by coincidence. it piqued my interest from the home page and i read on. the many similarities - especially today - struck me. i read the story of your dad's passing. tomorrow will be the oneyear anniv of my dads death. i have a brother named, tom, and had a brother (deceased) named jim. my son and my dad, his grandpa were best friends. my dads favorite football team was the packers. my mom died ten years ago this march. i've read many of the books you have, have been in coda (read all of the melody beatty books) and have "each day is a new beginning" right here at my desk! oh - also loved your recipes - many of my favorites also! glad i stumbled on to your site. debi

Your website was amazing. I was looking up the ellen degeneres show(and Hanson), and got this instead. I am 17 years old, and whenever I see anything like the sub-pages you had, I get curious. Several months ago I had an abortion. I am struggling with the decision I made and everyday it seems like my fight starts over. It was pretty amazing how I came across your story when I did, because just this morning I fell into yet another jumble of tears. I was in a physically abusive relationship as well for several months and coming here really made me feel like God wants me to do something with my life, and not dwell on the past as I have been doing. Nothing can ever completely heal the pain of aborting my first child, but I can learn to do all things through Christ, and in the end I know I will be better that way. You are an amazingly strong person, thank you so much for sharing your story. Also, I have found a lot of help at this website, it's a message board for women who have had an abortion and that are trying to heal. it's completely non-judgemental and neutral when it comes to political stance, it just gives you somewhere to talk and share your feelings, and it really becomes a family. Http://afterabortion.com I just thought I would share that with you and anyone else who needs to talk.

I like so many other people was searching a web site for the tv Ellen .This is a devine intervention.I celebrated two years of sobriety in october 2003 .I am familiar with the 12 steps. As a matter of fact,today was the day I had a date with my sponsor to do my fifth step.About an hour before I was to meet with her the phone rang and it was my father on the other end.If you are familiar with step four then you know what my feelings were towards the man ! I called her to let her know I would be late ,we both cried because I had not seen my father since september 2002. Needless to say the visit went well.We put off doing my fifth step untill tommorrow and my sponsor asked me to add the way I felt about today in my fourth step journal.I figured I would just tell her what I felt so as of yet I hadn't written anything and here I am at your blessed site! God has a great sence of hummor!not only do I need to finish writting about todays experience but now this one too! I beleive in miracles and the message of God.Tonight I want to thank you for bringing that message . Roxanne

Thursday, April 29, 2004 at 10:43:26 (GMT)
i found that your site has touched me deeply, as my name is too ellen, though my last name is not egge. i wish i could meet you, but we are parted by many miles. every time the wind blows i will hear the name egge... egge... i hope that you also get the same feeling from this email that i gotr looking at your site, i feel we are connected somehow, maybe only by name, but not last name....
Thursday, April 29, 2004 at 02:07:25 (GMT)
dang,If i would have looked further on your web site I would have seen this section before i sent you an email. but nevertheless, i will also sign your book girlfriend. We love you Ellen, oh yes we do.... We love you Ellen, oh yes we do... We love you Ellen, we do....ohhhh Ellen we love you p.s. someone spelled yummy wrong on this page. so seeing that I do not have any NUMMY recipes...I'll have to send you one of my yummy recipes, like Meatloaf Surprise. prepare the meatloaf the regular way, but only put half in the pan then top with frozen vegies and cover with cheese...lots of cheese if your lactose can handle it, then completly cover with remainder of hamburber or ground turkey meat and seal in vegi/cheese ....cook as usuall and bammmmm.....Yummmy meatloaf surprise. My Neices love it and I am known for making some type of surprise dish, they get a kick out of my final products. ok ciao for now Alicia

Thank you for being here for me at just the right moment.I was feeling really down until actually coming across the site.I began to feel an appreciation for life and an appreciation for those around me,not that i never had,but tough times can really bring someone down.I really enjoy music and have several lyrics put together.I thank God for the talents he has given me and for the talents he has given my family.I do miss them,for I'm the only one who remains in my immediate family and 'am the oldest son.We all are one and must enjoy and experience each others journeys together.Thank you for this site and will tell others of it.I look forward to hearing or reading from someone in response to my brief letter.Once again,thank you and may all good surround you.

i wrote this poem one day because i was feeling really sad and i felt i wanted to be gone. She smiles and does what she needs to do. No one asks, and looks no ones seems to care. She goes day by day feeling a dark hole to grow bigger and bigger every breathing second. No one knows, she has a smile on her face as she is hiding her pain and the thought and telling herself "God, please take me to a place far far away" No one knew and no one seemed to care she thought until it was to late.

Dear Ellen, I woke up this morning for feeling that I had slept just enough for now, and I decided to check my email. As I was waiting for my password to get back to me (of course I had forgotten what it was), I decided to go to Ellen.com. Thinking that it was the web site for Ellen Degeberous, I found out it was a different Ellen, yet the feeling that I received was just as warm as what I would expect from the other Ellen's site. With ine exception. Your warmth in your Home Page is very evident, and the pictures that you shared in "Living Life" also completed the feeling that I need to experience at %:11am Sunday morning. For this, I would like to sign you guestbook, and say Thank You for sharing some of you with me. Lovingly, Chinyem T. Nwosu Los Angeles, CA

Your site was Gods 3rd sign of hope of (HEY..I'M LISTENING!!) for me this morning. I Was saying to (him/her) just last night a snide re-mark about "If YOUR carrying me through the last steps,"I sure as hell didn'nt know it." Its almost as though,..I was sent to you and I know Its no accident! A voice right now keeps telling me to remind you of what (I'm refering to) when I say,"The last steps...and, (why)(is) the man asking God about where He/she was when he did'nt see he was there?? I guess... You already know what I am talking about and this will mean something to you??...YOUR A GOOD SOUL ELLEN. Sometimes the best souls...can't withstand so much pain,and you are someone I thought alot of. (based on what your doing with your web site...NOT SO UNLIKE MYSELF, there are FEW OTHERS that seem to care enough to heal by reaching to otheres I was'nt looking for you? I've never even used this computer...I Just need you to understand how rare this vist is. I have much in common with what is shared on your site so I had to write And and say something to you about my "chance meeting" today with YOU/GOD(your web site) GAVE ME some HOPE...WHERE I HAD STOPPED LOOKING...AND MAYBE EVEN SAVED ME FROM...WELL,Lets just say things YOU wrote jumped out at me like Gods answers to the obvious pain I can't share or let go of. INCLOSER,is killing me but I can't hurt the ones I love anymore.Don't know if I'm gonna make it this time. I Have more HOPE of at least. THANK's Jay

God led me to your site this morning (there are no accidents where he is concerned). Thank you for your inspiration. Been married to a substance abuser for 28 years now. Always think its going to get better, but evidence shows while drunk one night this week, he was with a prostitute, and of course he does not remember. Times have seemed worse, and we have both been unfaithful before. Me- looking for company while he was out drinking, and looking for self esteem in the worst places. Him- I suppose,looking for a female to indulge with and support him in his lifestyle. We started out so involved in the church and although I have stopped attending church services regularly. My faith in Christ is still strong, and what gets me through each day. He went to an AA meeting this week, a second attempt, which I hope will be more helpful to him this time. Although I have let go of everything I thought a Christian marriage should be, I have learned much about myself, and others, my expectations and the realities. I now truly understand faith and grace on a personal level. I have let go of trying to control things and leave that up to God. I have connected with female friends, and appreciate every moment with them. I need to work on my growth- I need work on freeing myself of the things that are blocking it.Thanks for your site . -Joanne
