This Community was created as a place where I can try to discuss painful events from my past. I will relate stories and events from my past in an attempt to try to vent and eventually recover from the events in my past that have shaped me into the person I am today.

A Few Points To Clear Up:
• I've ALWAYS BEEN (and still am, for the most part) a very private and closed person. It's always been difficult for me to open up to people, to trust people, to talk about my past. I'm making an effort to change that by starting this community.

• I am not posting these entries looking for sympathy from anyone; I'm doing this in an attempt at venting about my past and (hopefully) getting a little feedback from other people. I feel that once you drag the beast into the light, you can figure out how to kill it off.

• I am not posting these stories to "brag-bitch" about my past.
As in "You think YOU have it rough?!? Let me tell you what I'VE had to deal with! Aren't you impressed now?"

• This community wasn't created to "entertain" anyone. If you came here looking for "emotional accident scenes", please take yourself elsewhere.

• No, I didn't make any of this up. Really. Thist stuff happens more than you know...

• Some of the topics I'll hit on are:
- suicide attempts
- depression
- addiction
- sexual assault
- rape
- child abuse
- mental cruelty
- intimacy issues
- nervous breakdowns

If these type of subjects are things you don't want to read about, don't want to talk about, don't want to think about, you'd be better off seeking your reading material elsewhere.

• I didn't start this community as some sort of barometer as to how cool I'm perceived on LiveJournal. Seems like a lot of communities on here that are just "All About ME!" seem to be pretty masturbatory in intent.

• You can be a part of this community and NOT read my "normal" journal, unrepentant. You can read my regular journal and NOT read this one. You won't offend me either way. I won't think anything less of you if you don't want to read this stuff. (Hell, it's tough for ME to write it)

• If you want to share somethings or some stories about yourself, feel free to. It's not expected but if you want to, you can.

• What we/I/you/they talk about here, STAYS HERE. I'd like only honestly interested people here. If you want to discuss things that happened to you, I promise I won't talk about them outside of this forum; I hope you'll do the same for me.

I don't know how this community will turn out. I don't know how often I'll post stuff in here. I just wanted a safe place to discuss these things with people I trust and whose opinions I value. You don't have to comment on anything you don't want to.

We're all adults here. You already know how to act. Don't be an asshole to other people, don't start "flame wars", don't run with the scissors, don't eat in class unless you brought enough gum/cookies/drugs for the whole class, you kids stop yelling back there or I'll turn this community RIGHT AROUND and we'll all go home, yadda yadda yadda. You know the drill already.

Thanks for your patience and comments. Thanks for reading. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and personal stories.

Take care...

In the interest of protecting the privacy of the members of this community and their comments, I'll be making most of the entries in here "Friends Only". This means in order to read these entries, you must JOIN this Community, not just Watch it.

Feel free to introduce yourself and give a mini bio if you like. Here's the place for that info: http://www.livejournal.com/community/unrs_ribcage/341.html You don't HAVE to do that if you don't want to. I promise I won't call you up to the front of the class and read your report if you don't want to.
