    Hey

    I'm new to the forum so hello..

    Anyways i was on another forum which i regularly posted on about a mixture of things including personal problems.

    I recently made a post about something relating to my living situation, it was nothing bad.. was just looking for a bit of advice on my situation.
    A friend of mine who i live with but is currently back at home text me... She said long story short she had saw my post and not to worry and that i had converted her to the forum.. I knew she knew that i visited the website but i didn't know she knew i posted.

    Obviously it's a public forum so everyone has the freedom to look! But i just feel a bit peeved - it was sort of like my place to vent and now I don't feel i can because i know she can read what i post. I liked being anonymous.
    I'm not some ***** who just posts about random things under the sun.. I also don't think any of the posts relate to her other than that one i made. I've been going through alot lately and i don't like putting it all on the people closest to me, the forum gave me another place to seek advice. I think i'm a bit sad that i feel like i cant post knowing people i know will see. Not really sure what advice i'm looking for.

    Think i need to invest in a diary with a lock, if only it would write advice back :P
