I know we have had this thread before. And I know many of you do not have your original user name because Clarity made you change it :)
But there are newer folks here and I thought it might be fun and enlightening and empowering to talk about it.
I picked Cominginfromtherain because I really did feel like I was out there in the rain, by myself, freezing cold and wet. But I completely put myself out there, to get rained on. What did I expect was going to happen, sheesh.
I have kept it because it reminds me of just how I felt that day. I found EAS on a Thursday, joined and posted the next day and sent my NC text on Monday (no non-business hours texting rule). Cried my eyes out the whole weekend in between. The pain of staying in was too great though, even though I had ended the A 5 weeks before and we were "just friends" at that point. I had to get out. I was miserable.
Now, I am not miserable. I am sad some days, sure. And work and some other stuff is very stressful right now, and typically xAP was an escape from all of that.
But on the whole, I am much better off. I am out of the (freezing cold, throwing it down) rain!
