Things that bother me...

Posts that sound like someone lecturing in an infomercial, e.g., "Just pull yourself up by our bootstraps! I did it, and so can you! Yay!" This makes me feel like some people do not understand depression and think that a quick fix will work. I do think that positive thinking is great by the way, but if someone is severely depressed, I don't think a glib, motivational poster comment is going to help, especially when it sounds blaming.

It also upsets me when people post about getting sexually involved with their Ts as if that is an ok, normal thing, especially when other posters have a congratulatory tone. This has happened with a few posters and I just worry that it may give newbies the impression that it is ok for Ts to use their clientele as a dating base. I also think that those posters are going to get hurt down the line, as good as it may feel at the time. I understand the temptation very much.

I must admit, I also get tired of Dr. Bob saying double double quotes all the time. I think we all know how to use Amazon to find a book! If we can naviagate this site, I'm sure we can figure out how to do that. But I guess it's a $ thing, and since this site is free, I guess I can't blame Dr. Bob for wanting to recoup some funds.

Overall though, this is a good source of honesty and info. I lurk more than I post, but I always learn something.
