    Hi Doug & welcome 2 the site. Take a look around and you will see you are not alone.
  2. Welcome Jebby. I feel for you hun. I'm a survivor of child sexual abuse too.
  3. Hi and welcome. It so does feel great to not be alone. Doesn't it?
  4. Yep you are right - very tricky set up on boards even if you have a test site that it worked well on. Remember those kinda of deals all too well. And I agree and thought about it before getting on back on here today. Such a button may not be best for the AS site. Still doesn't hurt to throw an idea out even if I'm having second thoughts about the modification being what is best for here.
  5. I was asking because sometimes all I want to do is say thank you and I know some boards have such modifications or hacks available. It is just a suggestion. However I do realize doing such would require time of admin to do the upload and code modifications. Maybe something to consider (if it's available) for next time the board has an upgrade.
  6. You are so right. I'll do that. Thanks.
  7. Welcome shattered. You having the courage to post here was very brave of you. Take your time, read around. I think you'll find you are not alone. A.S. is here for you.
  8. Hey, John. I've never ran across anything like it either. And I did over react a bit - transferred some anxiety to this. And I know how much time it takes to search the data base, I'd never ask for that to be when I can and did simply re-pm people for the information. And your tip about Amazon ( I worked there for a year - I knew this. duh) worked perfectly. I have all the info that was lost to the pm's. Yeah, I didn't think AS was a freeboard or on a free server. Been there. Done those. Nothing but heartache and trouble. I used a paid server too back then. So much more reliable. Than
  9. John, It wasn't saved sent pms. It was the pms I'd not deleted and was saving in my inbox. Sorry I didn't make that clearer. Didn't think about that option when I typed that out. I don't save what I send out. I was on here earlier today and answered my inbox pm's. I deleted some of them but kept about 4 or 5 as they had some information I wanted to keep. They were there when I left as I opened them back up to right down the name of a book I was recommended. When I left they were still showing in my inbox. When I came back this afternoon to get the name of the author they were gone. All of
  10. I was saving a few of my pm's and they were there earlier today but now they have disappeared. So my question is did I miss something about boxes auto cleaning out after so long or could there have possibly been a glitch with the server? I am not worried about the info I can get it again. I just wanted to know if I have over looked something?
  11. aleo64 - I had to laugh when I read the part of being nice to the point of being annoying. Not laughing at you but that the fact I can relate. I felt the same at first. But I realize it's because we survivors want each other to know we can... well, relate to how each other feels. Welcome to the site and I commend you are rebuilding your life. You worth it.
  12. Hi and welcome. Just read around and you will find that you are not alone. Hope ya have a nice day.
  13. Welcome, Lissy. Nope, not stupid at all but I know how you feel. Every time I type something on here I worry, but I'm quickly seeing that I have no reason to. People on here are so supportive and understanding.
  14. Well, I think everyone answered why we are all so nice. We know what it's like to be in this kinda of position. As for me, I was and still am afraid because of how family will react. My mom knows but not really. I want to be able to just talk about it like it's normal. Not what happened but that I want to talk through what I experienced and how it affects me without people saying that old line about how it was so long ago, it's over, move on or that look of how the wished you'd shut up so they could just forget about it. Or as someone else said on here - that they might catch what I have.
  15. Hi rachelg. Glad you found the site. I know how you feel. I thought I was doing well too. This site has been a great blessing to me as I'm sure it can be to you. I'm kinda new too but I can tell you already there are a lot of people here who can relate to what you feel. I know I have.
  16. Congrats on 2 months sober. And congrats on taking the steps to gain your freedom. I'm also new and this place is awesome. I feared reactions to how I dealt with some of my past and I quickly found out that I wasn't the only one who'd done such. Nice to know you're not alone. Welcome.
  17. Hi. I'm new also and I can tell you that from my short time here this is the most accepting and supportive place. If you think you are the only one feeling something -- well, just read. You're not. Welcome to the site.
  18. Thanks to all for the welcomes. I do appreciate everything written. Took me a bit to come back after that first day. Nothing anyone said just self doubt. I just so love the fact that you all are here.
  19. Thanks for the welcomes. I just typed a bit of my story in another forum. I didn't think I'd do it so fast but I did and I'm glad I did.
  20. I'm Jenn. I thought I'd been dealing with my past well. Then I read something on another site (a support site for something entirely different) that made me realize I hadn't been so much dealing with it as just pushing it all down and back. Anyhow, I did some googling and found this site. I'll probably just do some reading around at first. I feel I'm probably the odd ball in some of what I did when I was younger to justify what was happening to me. Anyhow, I'll be around. Thanks to those of you who are here.
