I just have to ask....there are so many people that post because they are looking for guidence or understanding and I often see so many of you view but never say word. It's always a select few who care enough to say something, anything. But the rest of you remain silent. Maybe it's for the reassurance that you are not alone that you view or simple curiosity but the people pouring their heart out to everyone need help too.
Would it really hurt you to say you understand, that you are not alone, or that you're hear to listen? To some stories I know it's hard to know what to say...but think to yourself, what would you want to hear if it were you?

I know what you mean. I often browse this forum when I'm feeling down though so most of the time I click "reply" and get halfway through typing my post and then I lose my motivation and hit the back button instead of say looking for a helpful link to include in my post.

Hey Not2L8 & voix,

I understand what you are saying. I also understand that sometimes people have severe anxiety about posting but want to read to gain some knowledge. And I know you both understand that people can be really down and don't have the energy to reply and give thoughtful advice. I know recently I don't feel my posts have made any sense b/c I am in such a fog.

There does seem to be a lot of view in comparison to replies, but for me any reply I get means something. I encourage all of us to post, even if it's just to get it out there; those who just read I am sure care too.

Just a note about being depressed: The depression board is really full of members and I find sometimes you get a lot of responses there. I like to also try and reply when I am there as well. HW is here for all of us. Without it I don't know what I would do.

But I do understand what you are saying.
 
Take care,
Mogs.

Hey guys...thanks for hearing me. I just get so frustrated sometimes. It's hard to come to the one place I think people will understand and instead sometimes find myself feeling like car reck people slow down to see but never stop to say are you ok? I can't imagine I'm the only one who sees it. I know I'm on a slope right now, so maybe it's making me overly sensitive but reguardless of how low I get I can't turn away from someone who needs a light when the dakness sets in. Maybe that's just me...but for those of you who always try and say a kind word or offer some kind of understanding, THANK YOU!!!!! It's greatly appreciated.

   Well lets see, If you count all my multipal personalities one of my posts should count for 4-6 posts.. LOL LOL LOL tongue tongue tongue tongue turn turn turn turn

   Many people in life feel that they have nothing to contribute to the conversation.  When in fact its often just seeing that 10, 20, 30 others have had the same problem and have found a way to beat it is all that really matters.

  I for one feel more here should post. There is so much information they have that could help out so many other people. Even if you are just browsing from another board, often it is just the sharing of a personel story of overcoming a problem that is so important to giving others hope.

  ANyway don't give up on posting. We get highs and lows around here.

Not2l8t:  I know what you mean, I don't get on the boards as much as I should but when I have a quesiton that is really important to me or has me worried, I don't get any replies which in turn, makes me not get on the board as often as I should.  I wonder if people just think that what they have to say will make a difference.  Everyone has something to say that can help someone.  When I get no replies it makes me feel as though it's an irrelivant question.  It can be very depressing at times.

It does get frustratin, however if you ever have a question about anything going on, you're welcome to ask me. I'm still relatively new to the diagnosis (middle of spring) but I can tell you what it's like for me and maybe by some chance it will help. Thanks for replying....all of you

Glad we're all discussing this. Not2L8, I recall when I was first diagnosed how much I wanted to know from HW members. I just felt it was my best source. And it was and is! But no matter how little or how much info, it was help when there was no where else to turn. I hope you keep posting b/c I think of you, as I do all my HW family, and hope you feel better and gain the knowledge that you are seeking.

I think a lot of us care but are, alas, too depressed to reply. Or perhaps feel we have nothing to add. But you have brought up a very important topic, one that will make all of us think. Thanks for broaching something so important.

10fold- I feel the same way at times...that my episodes aren't nearly as severe as others. When I first found the forum I was newly diagnosed and looking for answers. I had been in bed for nearly a month only getting out to take my kids to school a mile and a half away I had withdrawn from everyone, I was fighting suicidal thoughts on a daily basis. My meds help a lot with that now...but I've had at least 5 med changes or adjustments in the last 6 months so I often feel like I'm on a rollercoaster.
I don't always know what to say to everyone on the board but when I can tell someones hurting or has questions I can answer, I try to say something. We often just want to feel we are being heard and that we're not alone. That someone else has felt what we're feeling.
Tks for listening

Havana...I understand that we're all different. Some of us are having a harder time than others. I just want everyone to realize they have the ability to offer glimmer of hope when one feels only darkness. I often cry when I reply to some because I'm in my own pain....but it helps to know maybe even at my worst I can still do one thing....I can let one other person know that I care and they're not alone.

I read alot but I'm not the one that has bp, my hubby does. He isn't interested in the internet any longer, so I search and read info to help him.

Days when I'm struggling to know what next to do for him, I come here to find some hope.

I wish there was a forum for the other half. We need a support team too. Some days I don't know how we will get through this. It drives me nuts, but I can't tell him that.
