    Hey, first time posting. Not sure what I feel comfortable saying here yet. I've had a night from hell, lots of drinking and emotions, I think I'll look around the forums for a bit.

    Thank you. Most of this forum is private correct? Non members cant read? There would be consequences if my husband found me here.

    The areas that say 'members only' at the home page are the ones that can't be accessed by non members. x

    Well, I think you need to be a member to post and reply and enter the chat room. Theoretically visitors can read along in the forums, but the chat is definitely only open to members.

    I am so sorry you had such an awful night - and being scared that your husband finds out about your pain just makes it tenfold worse. Again... I am really sorry you don't get any support from him. Is he abusive or just doesn't get the concept of mental illness?

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. My husband does the things he does because he loves me and is looking out for me. He doesn't want me going to talk to a professional. He's a very private person and doesn't want people around here knowing our business.

    Ahhhh yes... sadly that's very common. So you are living in a smaller community where everybody knows everybody?

    Have you thought about online therapy? I just found a really good link with online therapists who counsel you via email or chat. Thousands of miles away. Let me go look for that link....

    Hey there, and welcome. It's totally cool to lurk until you feel comfortable jumping into all these conversations. Glad you're here, though, and I hope this ends up being a place you feel supported and comforted.
