    main reasons I TTFN'd a couple weeks ago. I came back because I was able to get back on my anxiety meds but I just got fed up with the bullshit.

    The comment section here is really instructive to me today.

    Just call me firepants.

      my friend.  

      If you're like me - and you may not be!  I'm making no assumptions – teh ugly/attack always seems so much more real than the honest discussion.  

      And it is dispiriting, to say the least.

      I know you are struggling on many fronts - your diary last night, btw, was courageous and moving – and teh ugly is beyond hard.

      It may not help one whit, but indie, even though you and I don't always agree on everything, I recognize in you a remarkable person who enriches this site.  So I am reaching out a hand, and if you ask Nurse Kelley, I will ask her to give you my email so that over time, I can reach out a hand of support across the distance.

      Even if you and I disagree in the future, we can do that in loving and generous ways.

      Please know that there are many people here who feel anxious and fearful about issues - and that we have to try to reach out for the best in them.

      And openly challenge ALL to reach out for the best in us and not just what they fear is the worst.

      Teach us to listen to sounds larger than our own heartbeat; that endure longer than our own weeping in the dark. - Lillian Smith
