Maybe it's because I am new and don't know you all very well. I am getting very confused by some of these posts and don't know what to think. The past few days the board has been filled with good and bad points. So many of the posts I can agree with and then I agree with the people who disagree with what I agreed with my mind is reeling LOL.
I don't think people should be encouraged to wallow in their misery. I do think there are tactful and nice ways of getting a point across to someone who seems to be really down and low that they may need to look down a different avenue for their emotional benefit.
Everyone is different, like I said I don't really know anyone here hardly at all. There are many many different kinds of personalities here. Here is my fear about shooting someone who is already down. They will go down even deeper into dispair. I have seen it happen to a few people. The approach of another person pushed them farther down their hole. Sure there are some who need a kick in the pants but it can be done without being mean.
I haven't posted here for very long. Maybe it's normal for this board to take these kinds of twists but it has confused me.
Maybe it's time for me to just lurk. Maybe I will get to know you all better if I do that and that will help my confusion. Honestly I just don't know what to make of the past few days of posts.
I will be forever grateful for finding this place. You all have helped me and Steve tremedously! I am sorry for you having to endure this condition. I pray there is, in the very least, some productive strides in finding a cure for defeating the monster you all fight.
