I start reading some posts, old ones in addition to the new ones. I always have thought I am here, I might as well contribute. I have done Crisis Intervention Counseling in the past, one of my jobs required it, in addition to sign language. I haven't used either for a while, I used sign for a while, had a neighbor that was autistic and he used sign so we talked a lot. I was not prepared to come in here, I didn't know what to expect and being here 18 days now..........WOW. I have learned so much met people, talked and did some intervention with new members and some old ones as well. I think I was counseled a few times as well, when I really got down. I have been down a Few Times. I have made friends with a few people, I have never had any negative feedback. I have never seen anyone rude or impolite in any way. I have met people that made me Cry, a few made me laugh. I have started to work with some new members lately and I just can't, I just get to emotional, my eyes start tearing up and I have to get up and walk away. I don't seem to know who I am any more, I don't seem to know what I am Doing, I don't seem to know where I'm going. This Place all the People in here have been great, Fantastic, Awesome and caring!:teddybear: I have to be alone for a while.
