Reading the posts

I read the posts from people who are in so much pain. And I understand how they feel. I want to tell them - I understand. That YES it hurts. It's excruciating. And there is no guarantee it will get better. I want to be honest, and to be supportive and kind and helpful, but telling the truth won't come out that way. It will come out as a look into the darkness, the hopelessness, facing the tragedy of it all. It won't be helpful, it will just be jumping into the abyss along side them, knowing they are probably more likely to pull out of it than I am. I have been utterly lost for so long, how could I ever help anyone else find a way out? I can't. I want to help. But I can't.
