Falls - I'm so amazed at your strength! When I read your post, I kept thinking, "I wanna be Falls!" I just don't have the capacity to control myself the way you do. Particularly when I am unwell.

Earlier this year I was in pretty bad shape. And during this time we had some very upsetting posts on one of the boards. I was so messed up by these posts, I literally was not able to go to work some days. My T told me if I couldn't stop reading them, I had to stop viewing Babble all together. Well, of course, I didn't follow his advice for long! I did stop posting for a while, but I kept reading! Duh...like that helped at all.

So, I admire you so SO much Falls! I know I would be healthier if I could stop myself from reading certain posts when I am in a bad place. But, that's when I am least able to manage my behavior. I'm like, who said it, GG? A moth to a flame.

I will try though! Your post inspired me. I have printed it out and will keep it close at hand. When I start wigging out again, I'll re-read it and try to put into practice what you have done. I thank you for sharing your secrets with us! You are a gem of a friend to Babblers!
