For a day or maybe a few. I knew better than to respond to a particular post. I knew I should just not even ready but I did. I am upset to the point of tears, shaking and heart pounding.

I just didnt want anyone thinking I went MIA. I just need to let myself calm down and let the post go.

Maybe it will just take me a few hours, maybe just a nights rest.

Ill try to work on the different lists soon.

I understand. I know it can be really weird and hard to have a theoretical discussion with people about a topic that you have a very personal experience with. And it can be hard to resist opening a thread even if you know it will upset you.

I will start by saying I understand.

We all live/believe different things. Makes this a GREAT country but also means we have to deal with each other LOL

Take what ever time you need but please come back if you can.

Hopefully whatever that has you upset was not meant to personally hurt you.

Sometimes you just have to

This is where the concept of trigger warning comes in really handily. Whenever the subject of various traumas or things that invoke strong emotional reactions in other people come up, it's a good idea to post a "trigger warning" in advance of the discussion and state the nature of the topic that's being discussed. That way if someone's not ready to confront that topic, they can keep their distance.

I'm sorry, DB. Some subjects get to me like that, too, and it has the power to be really destructive. I hope you are able to recover soon, but know that none of us will hold it against you if you need some time.

Wish I could be of more help

Everyone deserves to take a little time away from the boards and that includes the host. I hope you are back soon
