Sometimes I wonder about how much of our behavior is due to the disorder and how much of it is just an excuse for bad behavior. When I have the urge to scream at someone, I also have the obligation as a mature adult to try as hard as I can to find a better way of communicating. It isn't easy I admit. I've had 7 suicide attempts and 2 near fatal. However, sometimes when I get really emotionally extreme I need to step back and remove myself from the situation, ie. get off the computer, decide not to answer the post, ignore the attempts for attention. I think a lot of us do this, try another way and practice ways to not react so strongly. This isn't always possible by any means and I'm not saying I handle it well every time, but I try not to use it as an excuse either. I have used the site for help when I genuinely needed it and I was responded to by really caring individuals. I love this site. I love the people. The other morning I got really irritable and snapped at someone and then caught myself and said whoah, wait a second that person has feeling too. It's just a thought and not meant to offend anyone. I just wondered what you all think about this?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
