    no matter how i feel, i try to read all the forums and i feel selfish and weak that others are in more pain and it makes me feel bad. how dare i hurt or contemplate the end, when others have gone through worse...i just feel a total lame ass. i am sorry to everyone that has suffered so badly, i dont wish to undermine your pain, and i hope i can contine to support you, but please forgive me my weakness.

    please dont feel bad icequeen you are not selfish or week ive seen you helping so many people here youre not undermining anyones pain your understanding it and that means more than anything to people here
    just because others have gone through worse doesnt make you or your pain mean less then anyone elses

    I, too, will repeat what others have said.

    Pain is pain, our struggles are just that - ours - personal. No one knows what we each go through, but we all can have an idea of each others pain in general terms as we wouldn't be on this forum otherwise.

    Please take it easy with your exposure therapy - its to help you, don't rush yourself though either. If you're not ready, then don't push yourself.

    I hope today is a better day for you.

    Take care :hug:
