: hey everyone-
: i'm sorry to say that what i have to say might make other people mad... but this is not the way to get help if you are serious about stopping it because you don't have any one who can really keep you accountable for your acctions... someone who can watch you and make sure that you are taking care of your self properly.... and on top of that we are all suffering from this deseas and we can listen to each other and be simpithitic BUT we can not help other people untill we help our selvs i'm sorry but that's just the way it goes i've tried so many differant things to stop..... even this.... but all's people tell you to do is to get help or to STOP.. and duh that's why we all use the message board isn't it??? we're not using this board and tell complete strangers about our secret lives that we can't even tell the people that are the most important to us so that we can keep letting this desease controll our lives... if anything this board should be a support group but none of us can give advise to other people untill we deal with our own personal problem... We all need professional help obviously..... well n-e-ways i hope none of you are mad i'll talk to you all later.
First of all let me just say that through writing on this board I have found great support and it has helped me a lot. There are people like me on this board that needed to reach out to people who are suffering as they are. Nobody on this board claims to be a health professional, we are doing the best we can to answer messages and give support. We all know that you need the help of a professional to get over this so your comment of "duh" was not needed. In addition to a therapist it really does help to know that you have the support of others. I think that your message was alittle rude and I think that if you don't like what you see on this board then maybe you should find another. But don't try to knock this board with your negative comments.
