Beware of posts that invalidate your feelings and especially those that tell you whatever you are experiencing, e.g. depression, does not exist. All you need to do is come into the light—their light and send them (surprise!) money. I have gotten spam and also noticed “professionals” who deviously promote their services by blogging on this site. Some may be true believers and really desire to help. Others, like the person from some mysterious country (his English was atrocious) just offered “the answer” after I would send X amount of dollars. Even those with good intensions are taking advantage since many people who post are not at their best. I noticed, on occasion, tricky maneuvers from these so-called helpers. Their writing may be encouraging, but if you check further they offer music, tapes, advice, whatnot, and all for a price. I consider that devious. And oh, one even does weddings!

    Thank you! Scary to think that people sound so trusting on line and end up not really caring
