just wanted to put it out there that i am grateful for this website and for the community and it's members. i am appreciative of the opportunity to reach out to the virtual world whose member's are familiar with some of my struggles (self injuring).
i know that the website taking a major slow down 2/7 days of the week is not that much compared to the 5/7 days that it is up and running close to real time. unfortunately it seems that many of my challenges occur on the weekend.
i am still encouraged by the opportunity to post my thoughts and comments in an attempt to reach out to people that might be able to encourage me in return- even if it has to wait till monday. your commentary in response to my posts area great help to me. thank you.
still blazing hot here in SO CAL. out 43 day heat wave is suppose to subside soon, thank goodness.View Thread
hi, fried eggs. thank you for your kind welcome. admittedly, things are not great for me right now, but i am hanging in there. the urge/desire to self-injure can be stong and seemingly intolerable, but i am determined to not slice myself. i want to be part of this community to be strengthened by others who understand the struggle, but i also want to be here to be an encouragement to others when i get through emotionally taxing situations/seasons of life without self-injuring.View Thread
i read your post just now, twice, in fact. i want to encourage you and the only way i can do that is through this post. please accept the humble empathy i am sending your way right now, wherever you might be. i dont know if you are reading my response at home on your pc or on your smartphone at the store, or on your computer at work, but please know that there are people out there that, even though we have never met, my heart and thoughtful prayers are going out your way. i am no stranger to the very words you wrote yourself in th e last line of your post. i know what it is like to feel isolated and alone. i know what it is like to very seriously consider comitting suicide. please gather strength from trustworthy sources so that you can bring your spirit to a place of light instead of a place of black despair.
