> I always appreciate you all taking time to offer encouragement and clarifications. I'm being too needy. I can't help it. But I am sorry. I feel that I will drown you all. I guess I'm not used to having anyone who will listen.
> Thanks for tolerating me as much as you all have.


Aww ((((((Elaine))))))

What you don't realize is that when you post things here, you are helping us too. You are helping us understand and put our own experiences into perspective. You probably don't know it, but reading about how you were able to keep your SI under control has given me strength to look at my arm and let it heal this week, rather than be harmed. If you can do it, I can.

And your posts are not selfish. This website is for support- both giving and receiving. It's your turn to receive (but you're also giving too!)I'm so glad you feel comfortable enough to share. I'm glad it's helping you, because you sound like a really nice person who is going through something really rough. You deserve all the support you can get. You're not too needy, and you're not going to drown us either. I don't respond to every post, because I often feel like I have nothing to offer besides generic pats on the back and whatnot. Or I feel overwhelmed, or mentally fuzzy... but that's my choice, and it has nothing to do with your self-worth!

I hope you can do something nice for yourself with the rest of the weekend

(((((more hugs for Elaine)))))
