    I'm pretty new here so I don't really know you. What's going on that motivates you to go for help?

    I don't want to discuss my problems anymore at lpsg, let's just say i've had too much shit happen for one mind to handle let alone put it on the good people of lpsg.

    As someone who has done this frequently, find a therapist you like and trust. Go with your gut instinct on this. Feel for a rapport between you. As in ever profession there will be people you like and people you don't no matter what their qualifications. If you don't feel comfortable with someone then find another. Your progress, if any, will be minimal with someone you don't care for but could move ahead quite quickly with someone you like.

    Please feel free to ask me any questions either in thread of PM.

    My best wishes go out to you! :hug:

    take arliss with you.

    this thread is the same thing you've done before-- attempting to get validation and attention through starting a thread asking for pity. as far as i see it, you've done nothing to really change. you're not going to get a lot of (real) sympathy with this thread-- you're digging your hole further.

    if you really mean to get better, you'd stay away, or at least not post a thread every time you need someone to stroke your ego and pity you.

    Thanks everyone, i don't like the idea of getting back on the meds but my actions tell me otherwise, i've been letting people get under my skin and that's usually the first sign that i'm losing it.
    The positive members at lpsg outweigh the negative ones i just chose not to see it, instead i was buying into hate.
    It was freddie 53 along with several other members who pm'd me and showed me the real love here at lpsg, and thus helped me make my mind up to get some professional help.
    There were some members who told me i needed help but their way of saying it rubbed me the wrong way.
    I'm the type of person who digs their nails into the floor and scrappes them along the way as i'm being dragged back to sanity.

    You've only been back five minutes with your latest pull at our heartstrings attempt and already you're trying to make out that some of us who didn't buy into your blatant lies are the ones who are at fault.

    he didn't say he'd changed, he said he was getting help. actually changing would be work, saying he's getting help is easy AND it garners him more attention.

    You and your very good points Snoozan :)

    Seriously, why are some people putting up with his crap, he's a troll of the worse kind, he's behaved abominably and thinks a very qualified sorry will get him out of the crap he dropped himself into.
