I am a long time member but very private. I have written very helpful, well-received posts (with ONE exception) but almost always anonymously. Then with my online identity I think I seem clipped and reserved. I just want you guys to know I am shy about being expressive online about my personal situation. Even though you will never know who I am, I used to really have a desire to help and inform people. Right now less so, just because I am really feeling discouraged and low on energy. I have had a lot of kind and supportive exchanges as 'anon' but then when I use my alias I feel like I am sort of very much outside of this community.
It's weird, you guys all seem so open about your situations and that is a gift. I can't do it. Thank you.
