O.M.G. No more chat 24/7? It was that immediate response when I was at my lowest possible ebb in deciding the future of my married life that helped me cope, develop & be what I am today - OK, The Samaritans are ok for stressful & emergency situations too.
I would not have been able to talk anyone on the phone - too emotional. I never joined a chat room until wikivorce, before or since. Age a real factor in that, and increasingly I notice co-incides with the users of wikivorce chat. On the week I joined it was so friendly and non-judgmental.
In brief - it literally is the only media I have been comfortable using.
Maybe setting up a more clearly labelled set of chat rooms would make it easier to monitor where necessary,whilst maintaining the initial unconditional welcome that stopped me doing something unthinkable now - but was a real option on the night I logged in to wikivorce.
