Not to worry, I found a good site and it's helped me a lot...but I will never understand how they could be so aggressive toward me...in fact I am really glad they banned me because I suspect they would have done more harm to me than good.


I think you may have joined an OCD forum by mistake.

ROFL

but seriously, crazy story. especially with that forum's theme.
never really posted in one, but i'm generally a little wary of specialized self help forums.
sure, very good for exchange of similar experiences, but whenever i lurked around in one it seriously dragged me down. lots of posts feeding off each other's negativity.

the bigger problem for me is trust but in a pinch online is better than nothing. While the VA has interns for therapists they do have closed groups as well which can be very helpful. Online people can make up things but in a closed group (which typically runs 8-12 months) trust and strong bonds are made.

@donks, yeah you're right...it did seem that way :hihi:

Bones is not banned, so you can add him to the list.
If I knew how to get in touch with Reg I'd invite him back.
You could add Sickle; I invited him back but he didn't seem too interested.
I want to thank IK for the trip to Hawaii and for letting me play with ST3 since January.

I tried to get Donovan to come back a couple of years ago but you're right, he has no interest (and tbh I dont blame him)...many of us here are friends with him on FB :)

A lot of the people who create such forums do so as a kind of therapy for themselves... and there's no telling who is on the other end there, they may be WAY sicker than you. I've seen it happen a couple times.

There are good forums, but you really have to research them carefully. Usually when they are part of a larger organization things are handled a bit more carefully. But even then there are no guarantees.

I went different groups for a different reason. I finally just gave up because some of them people just get MEAN. Just wanted to hurt other vulnerable people because they could.

I once thought it would be a good plot for a Twilight Zone episode:

Somebody joining a social network/forum website, and hanging out with all the other users there, only to find out after some time that all the other users are in fact the same person.

So this other person, having gotten involved with other users, even ganged up with some of the users against other users, realizing that all those users are in fact just one other schizophrenic person.
