My nom de plume shall be hickory, since it's one of my favourite trees. Greetings. I suppose I'm joining the site because there are a few questions you can only ask people who have been through the mill. Like many, I find it hard to talk about what I went through to those outside of the system, even though I am now more 'well' than I have been for many years. How do you explain the scars on your arms to someone who gets their ideas on mental illness from reading Mo Hayder novels? How common is it to have scars, especially if you are a man? Where do you go to meet people who wont run off and organize a torch-carrying posse as soon as they know? :eek: Stuff like that.

Anyway, i'll see how things go.

I know what you mean. I'm very careful about who I tell.

Welcome to the board :)

I have become very guarded too after having my illness used against me in the past and most recently over the past few months. :cry:
