Unhappy Bye for a Little Bit. - April 24th 2009, 12:13 AM

I know I just got here,
and everyone's been really great.
But something in me wants to help people more than I want to be helped.
And reading everyone's stories, and the helplessness I feel in the inability to help them...

I can't explain, I feel like when I read about other people's pain it becomes my own and now its just too much.

Plus there's the inevitable fact that I'm slipping.
There doesn't seem to be much I can do about that right now, I've been doing so much in my life to try to get back up but I think I have to hit the bottom before I can climb back up to the top. Let's hope this time the fall's a little shorter?

But I want to come back.
I really do.
Thanks to everybody here for being so welcoming.
I can't believe the incredible kindness I've experienced here.
And I hope to see you all again soon.

I'm really sorry you feel that way Kel

I wonder why it's always the awesome members that end up leaving. I hope that you decide to come back soon. By the way, simply caring helps a lot more than you think. But regardless, maybe a break may do you good. Take care of yourself, alright? Hang in there. x

I'm sorry to hear that things are tough for you right now, Kel. We all need a break from time to time though and I really do hope that yours is a positive one, and that you're able to use some of the time for you to give yourself the help, care and attention that you need and deserve. The door will always be open so please never forget that you're always welcome here. Take care.

Hey Kel,

I hope you're okay. Even though you have a passion to help people it is still okay to ask for help. The site works both ways. We are here for you if you need us. Don't think that you have to battle things on your own. Feel free to PM me if you ever need anyone to talk to. I know you might feel powerless to help people but just knowing someone cares can do so much. I feel the same way a lot of the time and it can be very discouraging. Take all the time you need to deal with things. We will be here for you when you're ready to return. Take care and best wishes with everything.

Lots of love <3 Mimi

Hey Kel!

Aww, and I enjoy reading your posts so much. You invest so much of your energy into helping people and I think it's right brilliant. [: However, I'm glad you're taking a break, because I hope that you'll come back well rested and "okay" in the future and visit us again. Take care of yourself! I admire your decision.

Hey there Kel,
It's ok, we all understand that it can get overwhelming.
Hope that you come back when you are ready!
Best of luck!
