24 Years & Counting

I am an ATWT Lifer as well, though I missed the First 28 years due to being in the womb, a toddler, childhood, resenting my Gramma for taking over my TV to watch ATWT, But Enter Brian Bloom as Dusty Donovan & I was Hooked, Just like Mom & Gramma! I have seen all the greats, Meg Ryan, Marisa Tomei, Julianne Moore, Steven Weber, Laryn Hill, Jason Biggs, Parker Posey, Jordana Brewster, etc..... I Love this show for better for or for worse, For Richer & For Poorer, In Sickness & in Health, Forever & Ever Amen!!!!!!! it is the one thing that always brings the joy back into my life after a rough time, To grow up with these characters & see their day to day exploits, it really takes you away from the problems you may be dealing with on any certain day & I am grateful that a show like this is still on the air!
