A couple a days ago I sent TJ a thank you note/thank you letter just letting him know what an impact he has made on me.. who he is as a person and an actor.. that I admire him..
It took a lot of courage but I did it and I am glad that I did it.. Don't have anything to hide eventhough it is really personal thing I share with him and now with you.. maybe some of you can maybe relate to it..
Read it.. share you feelings.. Here is the letter:
This is the first time that I have written a fan letter; well it’s mostly a ”Thank you note”.
It has taken me a while to find the courage to do it..
So here goes…
After noticing you and your gift/talent and having tried to make sense of who you are as a person, with your outlook on life – the way you treat the people around you with respect, love and admiration – your work, on how much you give of yourself through acting. It’s so amazing, it takes a lot of courage to do that, letting your guard down and just let go.
Just that gave me the courage (I know I have used that word a lot now) to take a look at my own life and make a change for the better.
All through my childhood I have struggled with a weight problem – kg’s have been lost and gained.
Because it’s just not the weight but it’s also ones mind that is being affected, which has resulted in low self-esteem – some time is spent thinking “what are people saying/thinking of me” and sometimes I still do.
Because of that I’ve always been shy towards new people and even with members of my own family. But now I have come to the decision that this is the end of that..
On this life changing journey, my parents, brother, and my sister-in-law encourage me to keep on fighting when times get bad.
To also assist/help me with this is my doctor whom I see on a regularly basis, where we discuss the progress or setbacks since my last visit and on how it can get better – becoming more focused on my diet.
At the same time I’m on a pill prescribed by my doctor that helps me with my metabolism and lowering my appetite but I know this is a short term solution but it has helped me keep on track and until I feel secure enough to trust myself 100% - I’m now at 60%.
My focus has never been like this before, so focused on the diet and exercise. It’s been a shock for me but in a good way.
By letting my heart and soul out to you has been very hard but I am glad that I did it. It has in some way given me extra strength in trusting myself and let people know who I am and what I can offer.
So what I am trying to say is: Thank you for the impact you have made on me.
A thankful fan,

P.S. Just want to add that I really love the homepage – tjthyne.com and that I am a frequently member/user of the message boards.
I think it’s a great/cool way to interact with other members/fans around the world and to discuss Bones and you of cause
It’s also a great way for you to get to know your fans when you pop in.
One thing is for sure, Sharon, Steph and Rebecca does such a good job with the site – actually chat with them regularly. Love the Q&A (TJ’s Skeletons). Keep up the good work, look forward to read them in the future.
