    Oh, you are so sweet, probably. Sending hugs if that's ok. Nice to meet you John. I have read some of your posts already. You write a lot. It's nice to get to know new people. Kelly

    I remember both of you. Todlyn, you always signed your posts "your sister in survival". And of course I remember Amylyn who introduced me to Evanescence and got me up to speed when I'd been stuck listening to Kiddie music for the last ten years. You guys are great. Kelly

    Hi, some of you know me. Some of you are too new to know me. I joined AS over a year ago. At that time, I was just entering therapy and in the throws of full blown PTSD to the max. I was also newly diagnosed DID. It was a tough time, and you guys and this place were all I had for so long. I clung on for dear life. I met some wonderful people, and I still consider each of you very special. I had to back off of AS for awhile because the shear size of the place made it very overwhelming to me. I read too much, wasn't really aware of my own triggers, couldn't self manage my own triggers. I was w
  7. I wanted to change my avatar. So I went to my profile thing and uploaded another picture, and did all that I was supposed to do. It said it accepted it and the avatar was changed, but when I post, it is not changed. ??????? Not a HUGE deal, but wondering if someone could help me figure thisout. Kelly
  8. I just logged on and this time I wasn't already logged on when I got here. Anyway, I suppose it's just me. I've been very dissociated this week. Been switching alot and losing some time and.....well, it could just be me. Kelly
  9. Hey. I have noticed that I seem to be constantly logged in these day. Each time I go on AS, it says I'm already logged on, and I know I have logged off. We are having computer problems and that could be it. I don't know what it is. Just thought I would mention it. Kelly

    Welcome to AS. This is a wonderful, supportive place, and we are glad to have you. Kelly
  11. This place is just not the same without people in chat. So much is missing, and I don't feel the same closeness with people that I used to. I look down there and it's almost always empty, and I know it's summer, but I don't think that's it. I know the mods, etc. don't want to hear this anymore, but it's just not the same. I miss chatting too much. I thought I would get past it, but it has taken away so much for me. I feel empty. I wish people would come back. I don't want to log onto chat and just sit there lonely. I miss you guys very very very very much. I miss our talks over "coffee" (I d
  12. Welcome!!! We are glad you're here! We like it a lot here and hope you will too. Kelly
  13. I used to get that every now and then, and it would just spontaneously go away. Hasn't happened in awhile though. Kelly
  14. I hope so. I don't want people to feel left out of conversations either. I just miss the group chat. It's not the pm chat I miss so much. Because if I want that I can just im someone. I miss looking down there and seeing a lot of people and logging on and joining a conversation. I miss talking to people I wouldn't otherwise really talk with because I don't im them, you know? I liked meeting new people, etc. I just miss it and wish everyone would come back. Windy
  15. Yes, and I've done that, but I still miss the group chats, and the simplicity of it........being able to scroll down and see who's there and join in. I just miss it so much. I want to cry.............. and I kind of figured it had something to do with not being able to chat individually anymore, and that makes me so sad, because that is making everyone leave. :cry: Windy
  16. Hey, I've noticed that since chat has changed, nobody is hardly ever in chat anymore. I really miss that, and I wonder why hardly anyone is there. Windy sad...........chat withdrawl.............
  17. I think having a journal that goes wit the bear is a good idea. Windy
  18. What a cute idea!! All my "little inner children" would like to play, too. What a great idea! Windy
  19. I understand.........but we can ask. Right? Windy
  20. I recently read a book by Steven Levenkron. It's about self harm, and it was so good. He is so incredibly insightful, and I know we're not supposed to talk about si in chat, but I was thinking it would be really nice to hear from him as we heard from Dr. Patti. So many people on this board struggle with that, and I think if we set up some really tight guidelines it could be really good. His book is called Cutting: Understanding and Overcoming Self-Mutilation and he has a web site at www.levenkron.com. I just felt as I read it that he really gets it, and apparently this is his expertise. It hel
  21. Welcome to AS! This is a wonderful place to feel like you belong. We are like a family here. A good family. Windy
  22. I know this must be very hard for you. It's so hard when you're a kid and you're sort of dependent on your parents for your ability to get help. Is there an adult at your school that you feel like you may be able to talk with or even write a note to and ask for some help with this? I ask this because this is how I finally reached out, and it was so helpful. Maybe a guidance counselor or teacher? For me it was a teacher, but I couldn't ask her to talk, or tell her. I wrote her a note and spilled my guts (almost), and she wrote me back which was absolutely wonderful!!! I still have that note by
  23. And the guy who r*ped me when I was 14 said, "You're a pr*cktease!"
