I'm glad to hear you're getting something from these forums.
I have a hard time dealing with the real downer posts on here (suicide, abuse, etc.) just because they're so beyond anything I can help with or even sometimes comprehend (words of support can only do so much, ya know?), but I've also found a few people I think I can relate to on here. You're right. It's nice to know other people are going through similar issues.
Ha, i dont know if I should say thats good or bad! But its definitely healthier, I am in the process of trying to quit but I work at a bookstore with a coffee shop and Id go insane without my cigarette breaks. So are you an artist?
I'm sending you this just in case you miss my reply to your post regarding your blog. I read your post about your inner child and just had to reply. I am not a therapist but have been to enough and to know which therapies are beneficial and which have the potential to do harm. I feel it is very important for me to get this message out so please excuse the urgent tone. It would make me very happy if this ends up helping you. good luck.
