I have online friends away from this site who I love talking to, but making even more on here amongst people who know what it is like to be mentally ill has been great. The people on here are very nice.

I wanna cut down my time on here still and watch more stuff on TV because I feel I have been on too much since I joined. But the site is awesome.

I'm finding it very helpful too as I have OCD back again after 21 years! I'm glad I rejoined recently. I hadn't been on here since 2014, I think it was. :)

yes this site is great.

I just wish it had private journals.. not sure I'm entirely okay with posting my feelings in a public journal (so stopped using my thread their)

but yes it's a good site.

Yes that is a fair point.

I completely agree!

I also have online friends away from this site but I don't feel comfortable discussing mental health stuff with them. I tried to bring it up with one friend a while ago and he didn't really understand what I was talking about. I ended up doing a lot more explaining than actually talking about anything.

I love that everyone here has been so kind and helpful. I really enjoy being here.

Yep it helps just simply writing about your problems.

Many questions get asked but not always an answer is given. Mainly because every individual has a unique history, mindset, needs, mental health, analysis and subsequent unique help.

Note, it is better do not have a reply than a reply telling you the wrong diagnosis or the wrong thing to do.

Many helpful and friendly people here.

This place can be triggering and overwhelming at times because it is a mental health forum. Sometimes we take long breaks. Myself included. But I always come back. The people here are wonderful beautiful people. Empathetic cause we know what it's like and understand each other. Plus the moderators are awesome too. Too bad the people from the group's I used to attend couldn't be as awesome as the members here. :grouphug:

That's great I was feeling so anxious and totally exhausted from everything that is happening I know I need some help with my mental health but l am too afraid to leave my flat due to current problems with the coronavirus and I have been so afraid of going to sleep due to nightmares but I always try to see the positive side of life and I feel that life is precious and I have to do my best to stay well and comfortable because it has been said where there life there is hope
