By not "running away", you are being very courageous. It is so hard to let go of old coping strategies, even long after we know they aren't effective anymore, or are adding to the problem. And here you are, using a new strategy, ie, reaching out for support!

Remember the other day, when you wrote a post in the thread about having children? Your message was so eloquent and so hopeful. Can you place yourself mentally in that hopeful space? Visualize yourself writing that message and try to reexperience the hopefullness you were feeling.

Also, scrool up and read Roo's message about "cradling the dark, sad places". That really helped me.

Keep in touch.
