I have just become a contributing member here. I genuinely did not know that this option was possible until tonight
I have been a member here for nearly 2 years and I never knew what being contributing member meant... yes an oversight on my behalf but I always (wrongly!) assumed that they were members who made very helpful posts or were very active on the board.... only tonight did I notice the 'Add Contributing Member' option on the drop down member under my username.... and when I clicked on it to see what it meant, I was embarrassed to see what I could have done to help Pandy's sooner than this
Pandy's has played such a major role in my healing journey. Before I came here I felt so alone, so isolated, so different from my friends, and that there was no one in real life that I could turn to who would understand. I felt like I was on this journey alone and felt overwhelmed with the range of emotions that go hand in hand with being a survivor of CSA and SA. I came here and I found friends. People who care. People who 'get it'. I found a place where I can be me, where I feel safe. A place where I feel like I wont be judged or ridiculed no matter how I am feeling.
I don't know where I would be without Pandy's. If donating here means missing out on something less important, then I am only too happy to do so and glad that I am in a place where that is my choice.
I understand that not everyone is in a place where this is an option for them, but I wanted to highlight this option, just in case there are others on the board who are unaware of this option like I was.
Last week I was borrowing money for T.... this week I am contributing to Pandys and it feels
