Loc: Limbo, clawing my way out...
This site was useful to know that I'm not alone with my abuse and pain, but it's become a hindrance now.

Every time I come here for the past few weeks, all I see is weakness, and it just infuriates me. I feel all this does is set me back more and more and undoing the positive work that my therapist and I are doing together. I'm sure there's something relevant between my anger and the weakness I see, but it won't be here that I'll understand it. It'll be in my therapist's office.

I've realized these last few weeks that I have a terrible habit of burning my bridges with people that I care for, and I foolishly believe they care for me. This here is one of those times. Yes this site offers a lot of help and resources, but with the constant need to walk on eggshells and not crack a single one of them, I personally feel I cannot fully express myself here any longer, nor do I feel my posts are safe and secure anymore. (SAR knows what I'm talking about.)

Thanks to those who've been there in the early days when I was here: (Sinking) John, Larry, Trish, Tracy, Grunty (Bruce?), and the mods as well, and others I failed to mention.

Take care...

I'm sorry to see you go, but you and your therapist know what's best for you and if this site doesn't help for now, then you need to re-evaluate.

You'll be welcomed back when and if you feel the time is right.

Be well.

Hey MR,

You're not foolish... we do care for you here. And our bridges are pretty fireproof.
Good luck working through things with your therapist, hope you feel able to stop in again soon.

Lots of love and good luck
