Cowboy, I feel the same way as you do, I will comfort and support all who need it but I will attempt to keep the forums on track.As another reminder, this is intended to be a forum for those living with Anxiety and Panic or have family with A & P. Please respect the intent of this forum. It is also for our recovered members to help us get to where they are and share with us how they beat their A & P.
You will find the members are warm, supportive and wise but we are here to help you with your issues and if you want to kick this nasty A & P to the curb you need to work at it as only you and you alone have the power to change how you see things.
We can give you the tools you need to help you and we are all peers here. Bless each of you.

I brought to the top Lyn's thread re enabling.
Aries as well as others
By no means do I intend to be rude or hard around the edges, and at times yes we all need some pampering to get though the hard times, this will not change here nor with helping others new to A/P to help them to understand what is happening to them.
But there are times that ppl will just give in and just let it take over them, we are going to try stop this and give y'all the tools to pull though as best we can, but I will not give anyone a pity party that don't wish to help themselves, it's like giving into a child screaming in a store for a toy, only teaching the child that this is ok behavior to get what they want.
We are not children here and did not get this way overnight, so we have to take things one at a time and reprogram are minds. Right now it's 36 below outside I broke a u-joint on my truck and it's way to cold to even think about starting the diesel truck, sure I can have it towed to a shop for two hundred dollars and then shop time for the repairs plus parts or I can take one or two nuts off at a time warm up and head back out till the job is done all that for a ten dollar part.
We are not doctors here and cannot make anyone help themselfs if they don't wish to so no pity party on my part is going to happen and I'm not paying 3 hundred bucks to have my truck fixed when I can do it myself
