"yes Koala, I agree, if would be helpful to have a definition for each sub-category. Maybe somewhere in her videos she discusses how to understand the test results better."

"Hi Jenn.  I'm sorry you're feeling so bad.  What struck me in what you wrote was your working hours, with only one day off a week.  To have done that for nine years is incredible, and something that I think not many people…"

    Chat Guidelines

    Use of the chat service means you agree to the terms of the guidelines stated below.

    Show Sensitivity:  Communication is frequently on an intellectual level alone.  As such the purpose can become the use of empty words to impress or “get rid of” the listener rather than genuine attempts to connect with another person.  To engage more fully with others, try to talk about what you are really feeling or thinking or try to listen to what people are really saying.

    Respect: Other's opinions on an issue may differ from yours so please be considerate to those opinions.

    Warm Fuzzes, Not Cold Prickles:  You are encouraged to say supportive things about others or give constructive feedback.  Try to avoid using harsh or critical statements.  Remember that it is always easy to criticize but it’s generally better to give a compliment.  Try to see the good in what people are saying as well.

    No Drama: there will be no altercations with another member in the room.

    Limited Profanity: Do not use overly-vulgar or pornographic comments as others may be offended. Cursing in general is permitted as long as it is not constantly used.

    No Harassment : Do not harass other members, pressure them to share their personal information (email, telephone number, etc.), insult them, or otherwise try to overwhelm the chat room.

    No Spamming/Scamming: WE DO NOT TOLERATE USE OF THIS SITE FOR UNLAWFUL PERSONAL OR FINANCIAL GAINS.

    If you feel that that these rules are being violated, that you have been harassed or bullied, pressured to do something you do not want to do please notify a moderator or facilitator about the harassment so it may be dealt with accordingly. Also if you witness any rules being violated please let a moderator or facilitator know. We have three moderators – Sean SeepersadSteve V. and Ash.

    In conclusion, this is a support site so please remember to always be considerate of other members, use common-sense, and be watchful for any suspicious behavior. Members who violate the guidelines maybe suspended from chat for a period of time or be banned from the site.

    Other people as inherently unreliable

    Started by Sarah in Introductions. Last reply by Gaynor yesterday. 13 Replies

    I wanted to know whether others could relate to me on this. I think Ive realised that I assume others are inherently unreliable, so when I think of sentences like "If I need support, I know _____ will always be there" I find a blank space where that…Continue

    I am too lost in my own thoughts most of the time.  I find it very difficult to connect with others.  I know that friendships happen over time...that they don't just appear out of nowhere...and that they do take time and effort.  I have just…

    How I regret not having maintained friendships over the years. It's hurting me now.
