I can always go back to messages/posts I have written and sometimes see how my life has changed in these past few years. I have also written many poems, at least 100 poems of my life and I can read these, of course I have also saved my poems. I could create a nice poem book that I attempted to create in 2015. I like the SZ forum, a good forum for socializing with other szs.
I like forums in general. I am only a member of two, but I prefer the conversations to social media. I don’t like talking to people on Facebook that much and don’t use Twitter.
This forum is really good for me too because I can ask questions to others in a similar situation and the responses are much more useful than a therapist.
This forum is my safe haven in life.
I really enjoy this forum because I hide my MI in real life. Nobody knows the shenanigans going on in my lil’ noggin. It’s a mess in there! I can talk about it on here.
I feel that here on the forum we can discuss matters that could not be discussed elsewhere, although in my psych meetings I discuss matters I do not discuss here. This is just the good forum for sharing any relevant information and experiences.
I usually avoid my past posts. I’m here mostly for current conversations with my fellow MIs
I actually save all my posts and it is fun to read these later to see how I have progressed and what my mindset may have been. I have saved all my posts since 2013.
my posts were flagged and deleted in past.
I’ve grown a habit of just not revisiting my posts.
but it’s good that you can revisit yours.
Only once one post of mine was flagged, that was recently, I have posted thousands of posts during the past 3.5 years.
This is the only forum I use, everyone here is so nice and understanding, I don’t get on well in chat rooms, I do tend to say what I think, but I never mean to upset anyone, and I have had posts flagged too.
i like this forum too …!!!
I don’t know what I’d do without this forum. I’d go crazy! This forum is a vital life line for me. I have no other contact with sz sufferers like myself. Except my sister who has bipolar. Haven’t seen a pdoc in a year. Feel very isolated. So yes this group is my life line. I can’t go without it!
Thank you guys for being there for me! I really appreciate it.
Why @mjseu…is that you? Looking very handsome in your avatar!
There are many things I do not talk here on the forum but I discuss these at my psych meetings, these may be some family related matters among many other similar matters, yes, I have another life too, I feel that I can open up about these matters best at my psych clinic when I have my meetings.
he looks beautiful, Csummers.
you’re using wrong adjective, methinketh. he might find that adjective offensive…
I love this forum but don’t look up my old threads because I find many of them embarrassing.
I changed my avatar to this full moon avatar, yes it was my photo in my avatar before the full moon, I have been exercising, eating well and so on, hey I’ll be 50 in this year, I could not believe it, yesterday I got compliments that I had lost weight and that I walk better, thanks for my daily exercises.
You say tome-ato, I say to-ma-toe.
If he hath been offended @sirBoring, he do not sayeth so.
Actually I have saved all my Internet communications since 1993 when I started using one Internet service provider in America, this is 24 years, one reason why I am doing this is that I can remember better what has happened in my life, maybe for a book, maybe for the future generations, back in 1993 these Internet service providers (ISPs) were quite different from today’s Internet services. If somebody in the 1980s had said that my mother would use the Internet to pay bills and for other things in 2016, I could have laughed, but as it is, she in her mid 70s is using the net every day for email, paying bills, info searches and so on without having any computer training. The world is a fantastic place as I see it.
I feel really welcomed by everyone here and I never had any posts flagged but I appreciate everyone’s patience for my smart allec posts when my keel was going belly up. Thanks!
