aj's fangirl moment 2012

“For AJ, thank you so much for your lovely letter! I read it and I wanted to say I’m glad I helped, unknowingly even. I wish you all the best with your SM. With love, Ben Mansfield.”

So, my reply from Ben came today…

I cannot even BEGIN to tell you guys how happy I am right now. This is just AMAZING!!! I am just – I don’t know!!! I CAN’T THINK OF WORDS RIGHT NOW!!! I CAN’T!!!

So here’s a picture of me dying happy instead:

Well, here it is - Mr. Ben Mansfield with my letter!!!

3 months short of a year and two attempts later, he’s finally got it and he took this lovely picture for me to prove it!

Now you can all just leave me here to die in my “Mansfeels”

EXTRA special thanks to the owner of Ben Mansfield Online who made this all possible!!! <3

I DON’T MEAN TO ALARM ANYBODY BUT

THIS MAN

KNOWS ME BY NAME NOW

OKAY I’M NOT FREAKING OUT I PROMISE

BUT HE ACTUALLY SAID MY NAME

HE. SAID. MY. NAME.

*takes a second to calm down and explain*

My friend thanked him for me, for sending the reply. And he APPARENTLY said “Yes, A.J. [last name], I saw her tweets!”

SO YEAH. HE SAID MY NAME. HE KNOWS MY NAME. AND MY TWITTER.

WHERE I “ACCIDENTALLY” SAID THE OTHER DAY THAT I WAS GONNA TWEET HIM AS THE 25 CUTEST PEOPLE ON TWITTER. OMG I HOPE HE DIDN’T SEE THAT.


Will post pics in a minute…if I can manage taking them without shaking

SM meaning Selective Mutism. Which as many of you know is what I’ve been struggling with for many years, and during the past 2 years Ben has sort of been my go-to for courage, a smile to power through the day with, etc, which I thanked him for in the letter.

So yeah…I’m gonna go die happily now…bye

PREPARE YOURSELVES FOLLOWERS

I just received a message from my friend, once again confirming that Ben has my letter (and is apparently a sweetheart and apologized for not replying to the first one, as he’s still not sure he ever got it. Gaaah)

And she just asked if I’d like the picture

GUESS WHO SAID HELL YES AND IS NOW PATIENTLY WAITING ON THE EDGE OF HER SEAT?

I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGO
