If you are worried, sad, tired, uncomfortable or just missing someone, can you still post in myLot? Actually I think it's very hard if your mind is not functioning well, most of what you can think is negative. So do you think it's better to just take a rest since myLot will also need our minds for us to be able to post and participate. Coz sometimes, if you don't feel like posting, you should not force yourself, right? Have you already feel this way? Feeling uneasy? With this feeling, can you still post in myLot? I would be glad to hear from you. Happy myLotting!

Yeah. It depends what the topic is about. Sometimes I do share some personal stuff on here. Others to do. And when I get good advise it feels great.

hello mark, Actually,when i am feeling sad and blue,mylot is my best outlet. I know it would be hard to do responses and inter-act with topics or discussion with troubled mind. What i did is...i will just read topics and comments...then,after a while,i find myself being in the mood to participate with some discussions. I can even start a topic depending with my mood,or,i can even response good if my mood is related with the topic/discussion. Even in my most down moment,i found mylot comforting for me. I just go with the interest that is related with what i am feeling and surely,i can make good responses with the feeling that i am having on that time. As,if,i am draining what i felt inside of me thru writing and making responses. Have a good weekend ahead

Hi mark, Its not always the case. Sometimes, when you're feeling sad or tired and you log in to mylot, it can be therapeutic. It could take your mind off things. For instance, like now, I'm very worried and sad because my grandma is diagnosed with cancer just last week, and she'll be having her surgery on monday. I'm so nervous and a wreck, I even post some discussions about it. Mylot helped me, with the support of our fellow mylot friends, to give some encouraging words when I'm feeling down. It doesn't affect the quality of my post, and it helped me to not worry so much and divert my attention. So I am one proof you can still post and participate even if you're feeling awful.

i agree with you onlyprincess... actually i start a topic of whatever i feel, think or whatever there is, it really helps me a lot especially when people responds to the discussion telling you to cheer up, giving you advice and tells their same story with you, it feels like you are not alone, somebody out there is feeling the same way like you do and it is nice that you cheer up each other.

Actually, in those times I feel like it is easy to post on mylot. The reason that I feel this way is because of the fact that the wonderful people that are members here make me feel a whole lot better when I am having an off day. It makes it easy for me to have people that are always there that I can bounce things off of. In fact, I think that at this point in my life, it wouldn't be complete if it wasn't for the great people that I've met in the time that I've been a member of mylot.

Hey friend, Though I can post responses on mylot even after at unease, I can respond best when I'm in fresh mood. Because a person can provide his best service when he/she is free from all anxieties and worries. Have a nice day.

Well, In the past, I in fact posted more on Mylot when I was not feeling good. It might be that many people do not surf online when in such a situation. However, I turn to more internet surfing in such cases. I feel less stressed after participating in some of the discussions. Regards

Yeah, i know what your mean. But i still post in mylot if i feel uneasy.I know maybe my negative will affect other people,but,why mylot exist and many people join in? Most people here are friendly and consider each other a friend,and if they have the same experience with ourselves,we are glad to give our advices,and if there are in trouble, we are glad to help them out. Life is full of this happy and unhappy things,because of this, we can know what is real happiness.Negative is not terrible , if we have the courage to get over it,it is not a big deal, and your friends will be proud of you .

I love to write so for me, it is a relaxant to come here and post or respond. There have been times that I have shared whatever has been worrying me with others here and that helped immensely. Everybody is different I guess; I like to come here especially if I have something on my mind. The only time that I have to stop and close the site is when I am really tired and can no longer think clearly.

Actually, I've been wanting to post this topic since yesterday. Lately, I've been feeling a little depressed. Maybe I didn't have a good day. Maybe I was just worried about some things.Or maybe my mood was aggravated by hormonal changes due to my monthly period. I usually feel that way. But everytime that feelings come, I easily bounced back and tell others, "Okay, I'm back!"

I am a human,i have bad days and good days, when i am sad, tired, nervous, of course I can not concentrate, and do not want to upset anyone, i do not start a conversation or do not respond. I can not detach my day by day life , meaning i can not claim that I can laugh when i can not do it. And tomorrow is a new day.

Hi Mark, It happens to me occasionally. Though I'm here almost everyday to check on new discussions, I don't always respond or post something, it all depends on my state of mind. My responses could be affected by my mood and so if I don't feel like it don't drop a post, I just visit here again another time when my mind is all into it.

Actually it is quite the opposite for me to be very honest. For the past few months,I have been extremely upset,sad,hysteric on numerous occasions due to my relationship troubles. On all these occasions when I have felt miserable I have come here and posted. It has acted as a diversion for me,taking my mind off the grief for the time being. I have in fact got the opportunity to think on the posts before responding and that has helped me to a great extent to lift my spirits when I felt that there is the whole world to reach out for,to talk to;this is such a huge online community with so many people from around the world;even they must be having personal problems but they have come here and are interacting,they are not breaking down but fighting their problems. All the time I have been here,I have felt great and when I logged out again I have returned to the same negative thoughts and brooding. Right now my problems have reduced,so now that I found this question I was able to think back on those days and share my experiences. Have a great day.

no, i don't feel going to mylot to post. when i feel bad, when i feel some trouble in the house. when there is problem between the kids or between me and my wife. i don't feel posting when i have to do or finish something in the office. i feel uneasy when the report due date is coming. so i don't post and just go with the reports first, before i go back Lotting.

I avoid posting in uneasy time. Sometime, even in uneasy time, if the topic suits the situation, then I may post a respond. But normally, I do not respond in uneasy time.

if you don't feel like it, why do it. this is the same with how i participate in the discussions in mylot. of course, there are a lot of interesting topics, but there are also ridiculous ones. and i try to separate the chaff from the grain. but whenever i don't feel like participating in any of the discussions, i just pass and return later when i am in the proper frame of mind.

Good discussion. No, I really can't seem to make myself post here on mylot if I am feeling out of sorts. If I'm sad or upset, I don't feel like trying to get into a mood that will allow me to post. I just don't seem to want to. If I'm mildy upset I can usually force myself to answer a few discussions. But I can't really make myself start a discussion. Sometimes, I just don't care about mylot or posting or responding. It's not the people, it's just that I can't get myself into the mood.

To me feeling uneasy and not feeling ike posting are teo different things. I have now found out that if I'm feeling uneasy about something , it is better to air why you are uneasy and maybe someone can help. That'swhen asking you My Lot friends , old and new , to help can ease your mind. But if you can't think of anything to post And you don't fel likr responding , then one should take a rest. That's what is so good about My Lot . There is no set time you Must be here. You can tak time off.
