Re: To old-time PB posters

I'm not an old timer, and I never go to PB (and rarely to PBA these days). And I read a much smaller proportion of the PSB posts now, as they have increased but my browsing time hasnt.

So I am only partially qualified for this discussion!

I havent picked up on the 'bickering', but that may be just the posts I have read havent been the ones including it. There are still people who post wanting support, or to share how they are feeling. I've done it occasionally, tho I've been fortunate not to have been having any major problems.

I've tried to stop responding to peoples' posts by suggesting things to *do*, as I have learnt from the supportive posts I have received from others that reading that someone else is sympathetic, and wishes you well, can be plenty. Not that I always manage it, mind (apologies to those I have given irrelevant suggestions to!!)

Personally, the idea of 'all night vigils' with suicidal people scares me witless. Messages of support to suicidal people are very much part of this board, but also not an easy part of it. To be carrying on some sort of real time debate overnight would be too intense for me.

I do miss some of the posters who were around when I first started, but seem to have gone. They were often very wise- as well as sometimes funny!
