I am nervous about posting full stop!. I have never started a thread in all the years I have been here. I just can't get over my nerves about posting.

im only comfortable posting in the journal i have on here as i dont really give a shit if people read it, but i can understand if you make a thread being desperate for help and get ignored it could make you feel worse

People on this site are swarming with empathy and sympathy, so you rarely have to worry about not getting a reply.
To ensure a response, add some drama or clickbait if you think it's needed.

Hello my Fairy friend.

Sometimes I get scared when you don't post. From reading your posts I can understand that you often struggle and it worries me that you are going through it alone when you are not on here.

Remember that this is a safe place for you. No matter how you feel, you can come here and share it. There are many more people than just me who look out for your posts.

We are here for you whenever you need us. Try not to worry about no-one replying. Just focus on making sure you get out what you need to on here.

Hope you are sleeping well and having pleasant dreams x
