This is a place where you can "bore" people with your problems, and they will be inspired by the similarities they see to theirs ! It's said misery loves company, it might not be literally true but it certainly helps to know that you are not the only person to have problems, feel sick and tired of feeling tired, have all the ingredients but make a mess of the cake...and that I think is why we all come to this forum. If nothing else it is our pressure valve, when we get to be a bit selfish and give vent, like John D says, without feeling we are putting a burden onto those we love.
The moment others start reading your posts, it broadens their focus on the world from just them to them + something else. I don't think that can be bad.
Don't forget, it's not the success that inspires, but the struggle.
