I was trying to post this yesterday, it is just a reminder, we don't know what each person is carrying, we don't know all the details know matter how much they post.  For many that post here, some feel very

vulnerable when they share, it is not easy for some to ask for help, and for those that answer questions, it is also not always easy to find the extra energy to give to another, we don't know how much they are carrying too.  Sometimes the people that appear to be the strongest, really are as vulnerable as the people that are asking for help.  

 

Basically if you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing, or learn to say it in a way that doesn't bate another.  I saw something that made me feel very unsafe and uncomfortable to say anything, I am sure others  would have been feeling the same way, sometimes people may say what they think is an honest opinion, but rather than helping, it is adding to someone else 'S**tpile', most that post here come for, yes the truth, but also support.

 

(Trust me, I am not perfect, I too have said something that was honest, and huirt another person, but I didn't go on and on about it)

 

 

Since I hardly post here anymore, please feel free to say what you want, but I won't argue for the sake of arguing if that's what you want. It's not a competion who has been unwell the longest, who has been through the most, my intent for posting here has always been to help another if I can, I don't need to try to pull others down and be right, plain and simple. 

 

(Each of us are angels, it is by embracing another that we can fly)

Awty: I think I read the same thing you did. It resulted in a locked post (justifiably). I agree and while we are at it I would like to thank Karen for all her compassion and hard work. This forum would not be the same without her.

Dear Forum Members: I have notified Karen that this post is reaching an "uncomfortable" tone. I would like to also remind our new member of our posting rules and etiquette. These rules are here for a very clear reason. If you cannot follow them please post elsewhere.

Thanks for notifying Karen, Cass, sensitivity to folks who post here
as well as sensitivity to the moderator's position is a must for all of us who want to continue to try to help others.
