It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

MyDeli posted:
Hi, I don't post here very often but I read the posts every single day. Usually just being a lurker is sufficient. My T doesn't like me being here because she feels that being on a self-harm message board is more of a trigger than anything else. I don't agree. Even though I am not posting, I still feel like I get support from reading everyone else's posts. It also makes me feel less alone in my struggles.

I really just wanted to say "hey" and be seen. Hope that is ok!

Hey Deli, niteflier here, glad to see you post. I too am a 'lurker' and feel it does help to visit this forum, i wish i had words that could help others, but when i try it just jumbles up in my brain - so for the others sake i choose not to post. i realize that is what the forum is here for, but i haven't had any words of wisdom as i am at a loss on how to stop.

hope your day is going well.

thought i would pop in as well to say hello.

Hi Deli,

Ive been lurking too, been struggling a lot lately, I found these boards very rewarding and supportive to read. It helps my loneliness too.

Hi Everyone.
If I could have one day and have that day be very windy and choose what I wished to be... I'd be a Kite and fly free...

In Harmony,
