On the contrary, I find this forum one of the safest places on the web. It's anonymous and everyone is in the same boat as I, so I know I can get compassion and empathy.

I think I understand what your saying. I wouldn’t say I don’t feel safe but sometimes I feel pointless and that what I post is totally irrelevant. It’s purely down to being over sensitive and just because someone doesn’t respond to a post does not mean that that they are being nasty just that maybe they haven’t anything relevant to say.

what i mean is do your disorders ever cause you to believe your not safe posting on the forum in case a bad thing happens?

idk if this makes better sense

i should go to bed

Sometimes I think I give too much away about myself and then regret posting. And other times I have an absolute manic night and post all sorts of gibberish. But I think that’s all part of the illness and fortunately most people on here understand

Sometimes I worry someone I know irl might find all of my posts. But I don’t worry so much anymore because I have grown a lot through talking to you all so it’s well worth it plus we don’t identify ourselves specifically enough.

Anyway I guess the worst case scenario would be potential embarrassment?

Nothing bad will happen midnight. Your posts are safe with us.

worst case scenario is forum staffs getting pissed off and throw me out for not being what they want me to be :panic::hidesbehindsofa:

or i cause harms to other members just by being anywhere near the forum :cry:

I think you're being paranoid. As long as you don't reveal any personal information, you're safe here. This is just your OCD talking, midnight.

I've only felt unsafe once when I stupidly trusted and overshared with someone, going as far as giving them information that could potentially give them the tools to track me down in real life, but other than that nah

i'm sorry i think i'm going through a stage of not trusting the forum staffs again in case they start the game of change what midnight says then punish her for what we changed her posts to then change it back again :cry:

When I'm experiencing PTSD symptoms I don't feel too safe posting.

Exactly this.

When I enter a discussion the last thing I want to do is take it in a direction that leads to negativity.

Relationships through interaction on forums and instant messaging is often convoluted. That is the nature of the internet. All I can say is believe in yourself.

If you open up with honest and true intentions stay positive and believe others have the intuition to respond to you with your best interests at heart.

I hope this finds you on a good day. :)

Oh don’t worry about that. You don’t post anything harmful and I don’t think you’ll be getting in trouble.

That was on a different forum right? I think on here they just edit it for you to match forum rules. That happened to one of my posts once. And then I realized my post was potentially triggering and had them take it down even though it was edited and they did and it was fine.

yeah a different forum but what they did was they changed it from something perfectly within rules to something against rules, punished for what they changed it to, then changed it back to what it was :cry:

Well that’s not cool 🙈. I understand the worry; I had a friend turn her back on me a couple years ago and didn’t want friends after that. I kinda am ready to make new friends now though like it might be worth risking it haha.

I don’t think that the same problem would happen here and we also have your back and could help you straighten out any misunderstandings

I once inadvertently posted a pic on this forum that contained my email id and the forum staff were kind enough to reupload it after removing the email id. That's how kind the forum staff here are. :grouphug:

Guess I should explain a little.When my PTSD has been triggered(which it has been,again) everyone feels/seems like a threat to my safety.It's not just this forum,it's any kind of interaction with people whether online or in real life.

I just wanted to clarify that.As far as this forum specifically,I find it more comfortable and safe than any other out there.Proof of that is that I am posting at all today while feeling like this.I may be sitting here looking over my shoulder, being startled by noises,shadows,even my own reflection as I walk past anything that is reflective like windows, mirrors, dishes,silverware,etc but I have felt safe enough to make these 2 posts in this thread.That says a lot about this place and how great it is.
