It's personal preference JC. When I was in the throes of DR/DP, this place was a god-send. However, when people recover, some of them don't want to return to the 'scene of the crash', which is understandable as it might bring the memories of this horror flooding back. Others, like myself, hang around for two reasons. I'm not a hero, and I don't imagine for a moment that this place would fall to pieces without me, but I come here, firstly, because some of these people have simply become dear friends, and secondly because I hate this sickness more than anything else, and I want to help as best I can. Occassionally reading some of the terrible stories makes my guts flicker with panic, but I've got (mostly) control of that.
