sorry if i'm putting this in the wrong place...
does anybody know if there are any frum chat rooms for eds/si?
cuz sometimes at night... i've been on the non-jewish chats at 3 am... just make me feel worse cuz it's something i shouldnl't be doing.
sorry about all that!!! so, back to the question, is anybody aware of this/aware of how to put such a thing into existence?
thanks so much!

i can be on there. it's not that there's anything inherently wrong, it's just that sometimes the language there is well... ya know... and it's something that i've been trying to work on for the past little while cuz at one point i was using all the language from the proana/mia ones, which wasn't too great, so don't wanna stick myself back into that. also mitzad phraseology... sometimes i need to use a jewish word and i can't... or stuff about shabbos and yom tov... can't really start explaining....

thanks for the advice, and thanks for the welcome!

I agree, non frum chat rooms aren't ideal, but some are helpful and don't allow negative language. Just a thought.

I don't know if this will work for you, but I've called crisis hotlines in the middle of the night when i didn't want to wake anyone and I needed to talk to a sympathetic person.

I was thinking it wouldnt even help if FS had a chat room becuausse it is so dead here. There is not so many people on the site, and not everyone who is frum knows about it or uses internet or can admit the factt that they have a mental illnes. its a lot more accepted by the goyim so theres more people to chat with...

Unfortunately, there is a lot of ignorance and intolerance of any thing differing from the conforming crowd, so I do believe you are right that a chatroom may be useless here....but there are many times that I'm on that 3 or 4 others are on too and I start wishing I could just talk to them. I love being Jewish, don't get me wrong, but the frum thing seems to be more and more about conforming and less and less about the spiritual. A sad statement but one I believe is true.

thanks munkster!
wishicouldbenormal-in theory it's a grand idea, but i don't do well with the talking thing... much better for me to write
giving you all a bracha that you shouldn't feel that loneliness at 3 am (or anytime) and that you should always have who to talk to/communicate with, and yeah.
(eloquence is not my strong point!)
