So there you go. Life is full of interesting surprises! \:\) But seriously, this happens all the time here. Show a guy he's safe and won't be judged or blamed, and before too long he will astonish himself at what he can say and do.

Much love,
Larry

Larry,

DITTO..... and Bravo!!!!

Jesse,

Welcome, and may all go well for you!!!!

I havn't had any training, but I for one would love to help you put out this fire. I hope you can also see that many guys here can help beat back the inferno.

So I now declare this "Engine House MS1". We may all be "probies" but we're willing to help you put some water on this fire.

Carl

Jesse,

One thing I have noticed is that your posts seem to be almost confrontational- very pointed and direct. You said above in not so many words that you were trying to find a reason to not come back to MS. I think your mode of operation so far has been an attempt to test the site and the members; to make sure MS is what it claims to be. I hope that you now see that it is. We're all here for the same reason, facing the same issues, dealing with the same feelings. If you haven't really accepted that yet, it's perfectly fine, and frankly, I would consider it normal given what has been done to us. Two or three days is not enough to form a real basis for trust.

Over time, as you read and post, you will become more comfortable and trust more, which will help you to post those things that we never thought we'd talk about anywhere. Don't force it. Go slow. You'll know when the time is right. You'll know when you feel safe enough to post those dark secrets because it will happen naturally.

For now, be safe and take care of yourself. Read, think and post. The rest will follow.

Dewey
