I didn't know there was a success board...I always just go to the same boards all the time I forget to check out the new ones :P

Anyways...now that I know this board exists I just want to take a second to thank everyone for all their support these past few months. I feel like sometimes I do post stupid questions or even make unecessary posts, but seriously, you guys help me out more than you could ever know. This past week, when I saw a counselor for the first time to try and deal with a lot of stuff, and I said that I'm not close to my parents and have had some trouble communicating with my friends about really personal stuff lately etc...and she asked who I turn to for support then. Well, to be honest it is usually this site. I just feel like no matter what problem I have in life I can always come here and people will give me advice an/or assure me that I'm not alone. Sometimes just knowing I'm not alone is enough to get me through.

Thanks for shring your DDN success! I agree, it's great to be able to come to a common place for anything-advice, support, or inspiration.

Keep dancing!

I think the DDN is a great safety valve for folks with problems they have trouble trying to resolve on a face to face basis.
We do sort of know the people here. There is still a degree of anonymity since in most cases we don't know the folks in a truly personal sense. People know who to trust and there are folks known for providing sympathetic hearings. The fact that we have moderation also prevents someone from saying some thing totally inappropriate and the insistance on clear writing means that people do have to give some careful consideration to their replies.
