i'll second that.

i have been bullied and attacked by several members here, which is sad, because i have credited this site and members on it with saving my life, when i truly was on the verge of letting go. i have a feeling others have been driven away as well - she was the one that convinced me to stay.

I locked it only because I have had PM's from Sunflower as well as others.

Im trying to do what was asked of me and work through this, the emotion is high on all accounts and I can not act on what they have asked me too while they are reacting.

Sorry if your dont agree, but as a Mod, Im using that best judgement and trying to work with all parties involved.... hard to do when I cant even catch up. I did however say I would open it again .... I just need a moment before this is totally out of hand.

Can you work with me on this, doing the best I know how. Please just stop ... we dont need to make it harder on anyone.... We can start another thread on how we each "think" it should be.... but stop turning the mill on this one, it is hurting people and I for one happen to care about all of them that are hurt....

Done with the reasons why, I would like to see a fix guys.... help me out please.

There is work to be done by the Mods.

I will not argue with that..........and frankly I am surprised

at my reaction...it just seemed to me that one person

keeps thwarting the positive sharing done by many.....

And how can we encourage folks to be open and

vulnerable in their efforts to achieve physical and

emotional sobriety when an attack is on their heels?

I need to be here at times and don't come because

of it.

O.K. I won't say anything else as that would contribute

to the negative for now.

As the Big Book says.....

"God save me from anger"....


Love,



Sherry

STOP.... We are still calming down Chero... chill.....

I know you did not mean me IO Storm, but I am the one in control of these threads.

Im just doing the best I know how and want to stop the ball from rolling faster down hill then it has too.... so we are taking a time out to Breath

OK..... EVERYONE AFTER ME.....

BREATH IN...........................UMMMMMMMMMMMM........ ...BREATH OUT.....

repeat

BREATH IN...........................UMMMMMMMMMMMM........ ...BREATH OUT.....

repeat

Just give it some time without comment ... it will calm I have no doubt... after all we are all here because we hurt, .... hurt is such an extreem emotion that sometimes there are clashes when we are at different stages in recovery.

It is not a matter of being right, it is a matter of reaching out to the ones that hurt....

OK.... as promised it is all open again.

Please remember that we are here to help each other, not to be right and hurtful.
