    2. I Have a Question...

      Sometimes things happen that make us wonder how or why but leave us too embarrassed to seek advice; don't be afraid, ask your questions here. This forum is for asking questions that you may not be able to ask anyone in "real life".

      Rants will be moved to Let It All Out forum and evocative threads that could potentially turn into flames will be moved to the Soap Box forum.

    3. I Need Empathy and Compassion (No advice wanted)

      Sometimes all you need is to be heard - to tell your story and know that it was read and that people care. This forum is for people not ready yet to be given practical advice but who need to know that people care about them and are willing to support them when they do reach that stage. Please do not offer advice or suggestions, just let members know you heard and care.
