Please Read ................
Ok all I know alot of us forget the rules (probably even mods from time to time) So I figured I would post reminders every few days I will post a rule. This will also give you a chance to ask questions about what the rule means if you dont understand. So with that said here is rule #1.

1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence. (ie. illicit drug use, including medical marijuana use, threats of suicide or self-injury, or threatened or intended physical harm). Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.

Questions?

This is a really good idea, Michelle. I think we all can use a reminder once in a while!

from my evperience,when trying to help, some anxiety and panic disorder sufferers are suicidal, or routinely make suicide threats

its best to tell these people that you have no training or experience in suicide and to refer them to a suicide conuselling phone service

otherwise these people can phone you and threaten to take the overdose unless you stay on the phone with them for the next 3 hours or so eyes

also they may make a fairly serious suicide attempt in order to prove to you that they really were serious


recovered former longtime anxiety and panic attack sufferer and helper of other sufferers  but no training or  qualifications in medicine or psychology, any remarks that may be taken as advice must be confirmed with doctor or other health professional

that is an important point Harry... the admin has this posted on the top of the a/p forum (under anxiety/panic resources):

National Suicide Hotline
1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
This is a combined network of the Amerian Association of Suicidology, the National Hopeline Network, CONTACT USA, and many other organizations. Call are automatically routed to the nearest crisis center to the phone from which the call for help is placed.

Helpful Web Sites:
Suicide Hotlines (listed by state)
Suicidal.com (includes Suicide Crisis Center and Depression and Suicide)
SuicidalTeens.com

I know all of us need to keep our fingers in check from time to time. Remember there are some younger ones on this site. If you are old enough to have kids consider what you wouldnt want them to stumble across, If you are younger think of what your parents would yell at you for. If you see offensive posts or the such please alert a moderator or admin alert the post.

Here is one some of you may not be aware of...

19. No lengthy signatures. Limit signatures to 10 lines or less. Moderators will edit and/or remove signatures that are too long.

Almost forgot to post one...

10. No posts of an overtly political or religious nature OR posts promoting advocacy of particular personal, medical, legal, religious, political, or non-profit causes. The forums are intended for offering mutual personal support. Debating controversial subjects should be taken elsewhere. Limited religious references are allowed (ie. "my prayers are with you" or a brief quote as part of a larger post), but the forums should not be used to convert others.

OOPS!   nono    I guess I boo-booed then....I am afraid that my advice was overtly religious in nature, but I didn't try to convert anyone...Though what I did post was of mutual support to the mother whose child thought she was going to hades....That's what I would tell anyone I speak to about those kinds of things...I leave it to the moderation team to either leave it or delete it...

*shortstop going to sit in time out*  eyes

Hey SS I did have to edit that post I am sorry it was great advice but it was da rules ya know ( lyn is sorry kk) but it had to be done AND it did help afore I did edit okay ........NO time out needed

Shortstop,

     I took your advise and my daughter went and talked to the pastor right now she says she feels better and some of the anxiety / panic has gone away. We will see how she does. I was estatic when I got your response. I truly hope it did not offend anyone and i am grateful.

Heres an easy one:

15. No SHOUTING. Remember, using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in posts is considered yelling and rude, plus it is difficult to read.
