This is going to sound so bad and selfish and self-absorbed and....just...BAD. In the short time I've been here, and the few posts I've made, I've started to feel remotely better. Not that anything has changed for me. Everything in my own life still feels as bad as it did just a few short days ago...but I feel like when I see people who are in a state of crisis worse than I am...I can help. In some small, tiny, tiny way...I can do something that is more than sit and drown in myself. Does anyone else feel this way, even some of the time? Does being here, and the thought of hopefully helping others make you better? (And of course, if I"m just a horrible person who isn't helpful and ya'll hate me and my posts, please delete this).
