When I first found this site I was a complete mess. I took a chance posting,I was afraid someone would say I was being a baby,or needed to be in a mental hospital. I was afraid of harsh words. But I posted anyway. I spent many nights typing my heart out,with tears flowing like a river. I would wince when I hit the "submit" button.
Then the replies started coming. And I could not believe it,no one was mean.They gave great advice and they seemed to understand what I was going thru.
Then I started reading other posts,and found that I could give my own life's experiences and how I pulled thru to other people. I found this to be a great asset in my road to healing.
It took me awhile,but I learned from all of the great people on here that I was safe,and that my life would get better. Guess what,it did. I still struggle everyday with the depression,I still have major anxiety and panic attacks,but the words from this site help me thru it all.
When someone finds this site and they first start posting they are VERY vulnerable . They are lost,and have no idea where to go.
Your words can either make or break them. You are the first person they are reaching out too. Even if you are not able to tell them what to do,just showing the sympathy,and understanding,and giving your experiences and relating to them might just be what shows them which direction they need to take.
I just wanted everyone to know how important they are on here.
