    A Blessed Treasure

    Here I am once again treading on the hallowed ground of EP land. I am a solitary type generally. I am one of those dreaded sensitive "creative," "witchy" types you see..... I am far from pessimistic, however, admittedly, I find most people in "real" life are a bit, how shall I...

    What A Blessing Ep Is To Me

    I came to EP over a year ago and I visit EP almost every day, generally, several times a day. In my circle are people of all ages from all over the world. I think about them often while I am doing everyday things like driving or washing dishes. Actually, I think of my EP friends...

    Not For You?

    My "need" and "desire" may seem way out there to a lot of people. I understand that. And I somewhat agree. However, it is why I am on here. To be totally open and honest. If you happen to be one of those people who can not grasp why in the world I would ask for such a thing to...

    Daddy's Girl.

    It's 1:30 in the morning and I'm laying here wide awake. I'm so tired yet my mind refuses to stop and rest. So many emotions are running rampid in heart and head and can't settle them. I can't wrap my mind and heart around the fact that he is gone. I didn't even get to say...

    I like it here, I don't feel so alone...I love that people share their stories and you can relate to them, and share your own story as well. In confessions, you can let out what you want to get off your chest...8). It's like a person that I can tell anything to and people will...

    A Vacation For A Bit

    Since coming to EP, It's helped me deal with stress of everyday life. It's almost a vacation or getaway, even if just for a while. Not only can you share your experiences, but you can also share your thoughts and feelings on things, as well as, meet some really cool people...

    Yea

    Ep is my escape world. I came to EP five years ago, looking for support for depression. I was going through a hard time, and I was in therapy and it was not helping at all, so my school guidance consular suggested I look for an online support group. I did that and I came across...

    I Like This Place ...

    ... because here I can explore my feelings without fear of exposure. I can muse about being with men or women sexually more than I feel comfortable doing with friends or my significant other.

    Most Definitely.

    It's great to get on EP , away from all the hustle and bustle of our daily lives . Meeting great people , and sharing experiences. And something you can call your own personal escape . We all have secrets , nothing wrong with that .
