Hi there!
Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

Maybe, as you're the resident techie, we can use this thread as an update on the site.

video is great....sometimes, though, it starts automatically.

I'm gettin' bumped off at times.

I post; it registers an error, like this is an obsolete thread - sometimes I kinda wish that thread would be obsolete.

All of a sudden, all the chats - even old closed ones show up.

I hit reply, and it submits a "thank you."

Anyone else?

Hey; I'm not complainin'....it's not like I'm gonna join the competition or somethin'.....oh....actually, I was a member of the competition for about 30 years or so....wonder if that gets me any free perks or somethin'. Gotta look into that.

And this ..... delay on everythin'.

You hit 'thank you,' it pauses.
'Reply,' and it pauses.

Don't they know that I gotta get to the next post already?

thanks for sharing ur story. as for me going to mikva has been a trigger,so i have had to skip it even on erev YK. Funny,my wife who still has no clue about my ssa has not asked why i don go anymore. BH very grateful that the RBShelolam has protected me in many ways from the consequences of the "mishigas"

Hi AD welcome on board the bus

Before my wife knew of my issues she used to bug me to go to the mik more often. I resisted even though i was tempted by the opportunity for "more" because i was scared of how strongly it triggered me and where i could wind up if i lost control. Now that she knows, she understands why i didn't want. I still go on Erev Yomtov but i'm very careful to keep my eyes to myself and make it quick. And i usually text someone from here before i go in and when i come out.

I'm replying here and not on your thread Cuz I don't want to mess up Cordy's plans.

It looks like you left just before I came but I remember seeing your thread back then. It was one of the ones that came up when I was searching to see if there were others like me. I was sure that my story was unique and that there was absolutely nobody who would relate to what I struggle with. But I discovered that I was not alone and I found understanding, acceptance and support. And life hasn't been the same since
