I know this is a bit wet and hippyish, but from my short time as an active poster here on SAAFE I have noticed recently things have got a little bitchy.
I don't know if it is because we all spend so much time talking to each other that all our PMS is synched right now, or just that we are all misconstrue-ing (is that a word?!) what each other say recently.
But just wanted to give y'all a big group hug, it's an amazing intelligent community we have here including some awesome moderators
. I had a neighbour who was a working just 20 years ago, she lived downstairs and sometimes used to babysit me as a child. I remember hearing her cry (presumably) because she felt so lonely- no internet, no mobiles, no blackberries. She also didn't have a place to vent, and to warn others about her abusive clients (Mum told me all this now I've grown up). She got raped by a well known abuser of working girls, and died of Syphilis just a few years ago.
End of sob story, I just wanted you to take the time to think of this lady and think how lucky we are that we have access to support, PEP (emergency anti aids and std stuff), and have a place to vent, express ourselves and make real-life friends, where we can be as anonymous as we like.... I <3 SAAFE! I recommend it to all my girls at the Agency too.
BIG HUG and thank you all for your wit, humour and great advice.
