Please please remember that while the CBB is a lovely friendly place, we are not counsellors, doctors or professionals in any capacity. Lately some people have been posting for advice about issues that are extremely serious. As lovely as the CBB is, most of us are strangers on the Internet. We are not qualified to give advice on such life-changing issues, nor should we, when we don't know the individual circumstances of a situation. Please be careful when posting for advice and also please be careful when giving advice.
On a similar note, please be aware that St Hild may not always ensure anonymity. At times it is very easy to distinguish a person from details in their post and/or style of writing and we would ask you to be aware of this if you are concerned for privacy.
