Struggling

I haven't shared much with you all lately ... ok, I've shared nothing, but today I'm struggling more than usual.

A few months ago I joined a support group for people who have been left damaged and in pain by being involved in an abusive relationship due to a particular mental illness.

This group of people have - along with Jess and Seamus - literally been my lifeline.

Today the site is down for maintenance. I'm lost without them. I need my fix. I need my reality check. I need to bitch and moan and cry with people who know exactly what I'm going through.

Thank God it's only for a day.

Mush,

I'm sorry you've had such a hard time. I didn't really know what was going on with you, and for a good while, your site didn't allow comments.

I think that getting involved with a group of people who can understand what you're going through is an important step. For whatever the faceless communications of a stranger far away can do, I'm glad to help, or empathize, or just listen.

Hope you're feeling better someday soon.

Thanks Seamy. It's still down *grumble*. I have loads more limericks to post lol ;)

Jess, Nuffin to be sorry about. I'm scarce myself at the moment but you're only a msg away :) and ouch and taaa lol

Firehawk, I've been pretty shellshocked ... still am to a certain degree. There's so much to learn and a lot of healing to do but your comments always help me and I thank you for still coming over to check on me :)

i have been reading your blog for some time but i have not had words to express what i have been feeling since i began reading you...

the poem you posted down a bit further about "would you care" took my breath from me...

i have been through some really hard stuff during my life and the last two years have truly been the hardest i have ever had to endure...it is not relavent to post about all of those happenings here but i just want to say that reading your blog (whether you realize this or not) has helped me at times to find a place where maybe some healing could begin or where i could make some sense from the pain...

please keep posting and please keep the lines open for us to comment to you...

take care this weekend and as always i will come back to your site several times a day to see if you have updated and posted...

always,

melissa

Hi Melissa,

Wow, I honestly don't know what to say. I didn't realise anyone else was reading here. I guess I've always though my posts were dribble and not worth reading.

The healing path can often be a long, drawn out battle and if something I've said has helped someone then I'm glad I came out of my cave to say it.

I know how hard it is at times to find the words to express how we feel but I'm so glad you commented and let me know. It means a lot to me.

Thankyou
