Re: My insight on this site - to unimpressed and upset
Well who would have thought that I could have stirred so much controversy!!!!!!!
To "Upset" and "Unimpressed", just to set the record straight I don't come here to this site to blow my own horn, I am by no means a Psychologist or someone with medical degrees in the matters of the mind and heart.
As for being opinionated, haven't you noticed how many people come to this site just to let off steam, take out their frustrations, look for help or just come to talk crap. Well that's what I was trying to say. If you 've got a problem, sort it out. I see the same people over and over and over again with the same issues.

No one said anything about me being able to walk on water and as Cyberdoc may know better than the two of you, I have had A LOT of life lessons. I know about divorce, separation, rape, anxiety, murder (yes I've lost someone) family violence, car accidents, mental illness such as bipolor and manic depression. I was purely voicing my own opinion (like that's a crime) that if people like that have real problems that need to be solved then they should be encouraged to seek help instead of complaining about it on a website with one professional who is only as close as a modem connection.

So, "Upset" and "Unimpressed", although I get shunned by you for your opinion, don't expect your opinion to count that much more. Sounds like you guys are just way way too judgemental.

For those of you who responded to my posting and understood the jist of the matter, congratulations.

Well said, Wings. Some people learn many lessons in life ; others keep trying to learn the same lesson, and never get round to any of the others.
And interesting to hear you views again, lady nina. yes, things have changed over the years ( darn few websites have been around so long, so they don't get the chance to show change ). And surely much has to do with the shift in internet access --- nowadays many people access us free from work, whereas not long back a majority of visitors were dialup substcribers from home, for instance. But short of deleting a majority of posts, or telling people to go away if they don't fit a pre-ordained plan, we, like any other publication, have the readers who come here. We can't go out and buy a fresh supply if we get bored with the existing ones.
