Symora Posted August 13, 2010 Report Share Posted August 13, 2010 I joined this forum around last december I think, and boy was I a mess back then. In deep depression, confused, alone, tired of living. When I first arrived I posted like 20 times a day, I was so thirsty for someone to hear me, discuss things with someone, and I was not dissapointed. I met wonderful people here, from all over the world, strangers who became friends, people who reached out to me and supported me though a very difficult time. I was even asked to moderate, and that was a great honour for me, to be trusted in that way and to be basically told that I had something positive to contribute to the health of this forum.It is now many months later and your kindness, tolerance and encouragement have seen me through to the other side. I am feeling so much better, I have overcome this bout of deep depression and am rebuilding my life after many losses. All of that is directly attributable to all of you, I truly mean that. I have found a place where I can come everyday to visit, feel connected. I was given good advice, but mostly I was told that I was a worthwhile human being and that I was going to get through this rough path ... and I did. I'm grateful to each and everyone of you who come here and lend your voice to the discussions. I have learned much about my own mental illness with your help and I have also learned to be grateful for those things that I do have. Your presence and kind words are invaluable in my life... even if you are all invisible people Never doubt that your kindness and compassion make a difference, because it does... I am living proof of that... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
