11 hours ago · I'm new to all this -- how do I keep up with posts that I replied to? in Just Want to Talk

@johnbishop Hey John, thanks for info but I have more questions. How do I send a private message? When I “view a reply” I see more posts than show up in my email. Why? What is the Connect window and Connect guide? Thank you ! …… Karen

@parus Hey Parus, it’s been a month since I’ve been outside! I’m scared about being at home. I’ll be by myself Friday from 11:30 to 5:30. Here, I’m NEVER by myself! So it will be a real challenge! …..Karen

@mia001 hi Mia, I read your posts and was so moved by your pain. I have no experience with self harm (well maybe I do- overeating) but I have been in mental pain with suicidal depression. Please don’t crash your car! You are too valuable! I am struggling to write this and make sure I say the right things. The bottom line is that we care and don’t want you to self harm. Please find another psychiatrist!…..Karen

@parus Hey Parus, well I’m now in rehab hospital going home on Friday. I knew it would happen soon and it did. They withdrew pain meds. I can remember the nights I sat up crying in bed, with no help for pain. We’ll see how things go now. I can’t take nsaids because I’m on a blood thinner. I am scared, but can just pray that I don’t have any of these episodes again. I did do something which I think will help me. I got all the positive, uplifting people here, to write in my notebook happy, forward moving kinds of thoughts for when I’m depressed. Maybe that will help.
So, after a month’s stay for severe cellulitis, it’s over! And I’m healed!
