    Hello Homer, I understand how she feels but you could say to her that it's completely anonymous and no one knows who you are, where you live and that other people may also be suffering from exactly the same and if so you're only trying to find out how they coped and that's why usernames are used.

    Geoff.

    Hello Homer,

    I hope you are reading this. Even though you might not be posting, just try to remember, there are people out here, people who've been following your thread, & care & send you our heart-felt best wishes, & support as you can imagine. My only regret is in not being able to do more.

    & I hope you can talk to your partner & are able to explain about how anonymous this forum is, & how it has helped you through these past weeks.

    If you feel calling BB's own phone counselling service, on: 1300 22 46 36. Those discussions don't end up on any public forum. & can be anonymous, too, just say so.

    My warmest regards,

    mmMekitty

    After a long discussion with my partner she has agreed that I need a place that I can vent and ask for advice I told her that there are people who are or have been going through the same or similar situation and that all posts are anonymous
