I just want to add that I have immense respect for those of you who do feel free to discuss this on Babble. Any bitterness in my posts (and I'm glad if my posts were so obtuse that the bitterness wasn't obvious) was directed toward myself for not being stronger, not anyone else. Certainly not those who are stronger than I am.

Sometimes what I wish more than anything for myself is to have the courage to be honest, and not to care what anyone says. Not to be hurt by remarks from people I don't know, or even by people I do know. To be proud of who I am, and to be able to proclaim it loudly. But my bursts of self disclosure of the things that are important to me are generally short and easily short circuited by criticism of any sort.

What I *need* to do is to develop a shield against negative feedback. But it's so darn much easier to just hide those things that might bring on negative feedback.

Anyway, you guys have my profoundest admiration. Really. You're all I'd like to be.
