I absolutely didn't believe that everyone was going to agree with me and that was never my intention when posting this. It was to hear how everyone was feeling about the board. Openly. Honestly. And, I welcome everyone's input. There can't be any positive change if another feels differently and doesn't express it.
The *Warnings* on the posts or as I suggested, the title describes it's content, and I have always posted this way. And, I've found that most here do, too. If I post about my Dad, Dad will be in my title or if I'm posting about feeling really bad, my title will be.."Feeling bad" and if someone is already feeling worse than usual, then they wouldn't want to read my post.
And, I agree that no one here should ever have to deal with being harassed. Personally, I have never received a private message that wasn't caring so, no I am not aware of these harassing emails or private messages.
I think it's very important to talk about the memories that haunt some of us. I always have and I never received a message privately because of it. At times I would place something in the title and others I would just free write. But, it was regarding my pain and I always received support.
I can relate as my closest friends, also are those who have been the greatest support to me, and have been from this board. Who better to understand our pain and listen with an open heart?
(my connection is so slow tonight and I keep getting knocked off, so please bear with me!)
