So.. I come here when I'm feeling blue... which has been a LOT lately.  I tell myself, people are on here that are just like me and need support.  Yet...when I look at a Post's stats... I see TONS AND TONS of views and a few to NO responses.

I realize I'm not alway happy and I wish I didn't exist.. BUT shouldn't we all try just a little??  i mean a simple message of HANG IN THERE but be better than nothing.

Every time I see a person's post get over a 1000 looks and 0 replies... I wonder... What are WE doing here?  Shouldn't we be supportive and not just a voyeur?  We are all here together, right?

Some days just a person's kind words can help.  It may not cure but feels better when we know we are not alone.

Bubba hugs y'all.

Hiya,

There are many aspects to why this happens, mental health itself has a stigma attached to it, but on a forum level, some people can't comment and just read, others only visit when they need support, not to offer it and that is fine.  I know mental health aspects also get mixed in and discussed in treatment threads etc where emotional support is offered.

Anyhow, agree with you that threads should not go unanswered and sometimes a simple, hang in there, or message that we're here for people can mean a lot.

Thanks for raising the topic.

Jim.

Hey, Bubba. I hear you. I am here, but I am new so I hang back a little bit.
