Exclamation TMI thread. Discussion of sensitive ADULT issues/triggers. Enter with awareness!

Oh, if only. Well, there's no children here, adults only, it seems.
My sister once described it to me as 'taking the teeth out of the tiger'- an expression I'd never heard, but the way she said it made me think it's commonly known. She meant talking about something you just don't talk about, getting it off your chest, so it reduces the power of pain, terror or shame. I couldn't do it. Different than 'JTIS' really. Very.
I think it would almost need a moderator. Well, we have moderators. I guess I mean a daily monitor or moderator.
I have one idea, and I like so many of the writers here, but I could verbally get murdered.
So, a "Too Much Information, With No Judgement Of Something I Haven't Even Told My Shrink"- what, who me? Yes, I do have one! The collective gasps I imagine are deafening, baby. (only if it surprised a soul).
I imagine it that it can't be about anything violent, causing harm to others, illegal, or too disturbing as to create mayhem. Or is that both too vague and too specific?
Does anyone know of such a forum maybe outside of The Ledge?
Important but difficult or embarrassing true confessions, they have to be true, no making a thing up. Maybe helping yourself. Or maybe there's a good reason not to talk about it, if one just never has been able to.
That's it, it's embarrassment and shame. The Embarrassment and Shame Forum.
Ah, there must be one somewhere already.

I actually totally dig this idea. I think letting out the good, bad, and ugly is the most cathartic thing you can do as a person. The good thing about sharing TMI is that you have the ability to help others by proxy. So many subjects are taboo to the point where there's no healthy discussion of them, which causes mistakes to be repeated again and again. No subject is off limits for me personally... but I'm sure that won't be a unified sentiment around here. To me knowledge is knowledge is knowledge. And I love soaking up information about absolutely everything... so bring it on, I say!

I don't know if this is TMI, but it's probably more that you want to know about my dream.

Last night I dreamed I had The Dance CD, and eveyone was buck naked on the album cover. Christine was wearing a black feather boa.

Then I went to one of their Dance shows, but I believe they were clothed.

Oh dear, someone bumped the rant du jour from the other night about Oprbama. Time to go bump it back down!
