    I have been a member since march but always just trolled the confessional. I saw the Thanksgiving Post and thought "wow, that is amazing and would help my family so much" So I started posting. The food is great it will make all the difference but I find that pushing me to post was an even greater blessing. I am looking forward to making friends and continuing to post. So my question for all of you lovely ladies (and few gents) is what has scary mommy given you in your life?  

    I'll start

    - Connections with people so I don't feel so alone in my chaos
    -a place to privately vent
    -A feeling that people actually give a crap about me(besides DH and Kids)

    I know its a silly post but I feel so lucky this morning to be able to drink my coffee and enjoy the company of you fine people.

    ~Scary Mommy gave me a chance to know that I am not alone in my everyday life. I have hundreds of women helping me through day to day life, and they are all rooting for me to succeed in this crazy insane thing we call parenting!

    ~A place where I can talk in adult language, without having to worry about repercussions, vent about the kids, the X, and the SO

    ~ I dont need to worry about feeling guilty that sometimes I dont like my kids.. I may love them dearly, but that doesnt mean that I have to LIKE them all the time- and I am not alone!

    Thats my three :) I have hundreds more! @ScaryMommy is the 2nd reason I get up in the morning! If it wasn't for her, I would be a total wreck!

     For me Scary Mommy is about sisterhood. You come here and can always find someone that can help you cope a little better throughout your day (or maybe someone you can help), if only to get a much needed laugh LOL. I also started with the confessionals, however it is much more for me now. I find the sense of camaraderie comforting and easy. Thanks Everyone!

    I'm finding that having other moms to talk to is amazing. I've been reading about other people who have the same issues I do and it is beyond comforting. I can bare my soul and you ladies make me feel so much better. I'm thinking about what has been said to me lately about something and it makes me tear up with gratitude.

    @ScaryMommy has given me....

    A place where I can be ME and celebrated for exactly who I am and not judged.
    A best friend (with @floridamommy25)
    A place where I can vent anonymously to get the bad feelings OUT
    A place where I am given a gift when I can help someone else out
    A place to laugh, cry, vent, brag, whine, bitch, and laugh some more
    Ladies that make me feel welcome, a part of something bigger than me.
    Knowing an incredible woman like Jill, who started it all.

    Scary Mommy is my lifeline. These wonderful ladies have changed me into a person I am proud to be. Helped me curb anxieties, get through tummy bugs, dump my fucking useless ex bf, grow up, see the world from a different angle, AND I got a kickass recipe for rhubarb bbq ribs.

    I fucking love this place.

    This site has really helped me come out of my shell a bit... I am a very cautious person, but I have been posting a bit here and there and I am starting to look forward to posting :-)
    Love the openness of this site and everybody seems so nice :-)

    Uuhhmm. @dragonbabyx3 I'm throwing this one back to @irishlass. Lol. I 'fly by night' a lot with recipes, and I write them down on sticky notes. With no titles. If she has it to hand, then I'd go with hers.

    Its given me a place where I can really say what I want to say without feeling like I'm being judged.

    Its a place to make friends, which is really hard now that I'm sober.

    Its given a place to support others as I have been supported.

    Me too!!!
    I creeped the confessions for a yr before attempting any real connections. I was initially turned off, my 1 attempt at reaching out turned into a character assasination, judgement. Guess I didn't know for e
    very 100 users, there's that one bad egg. Kinda gotta feel the waters before head diving.

    No problem tho! I found a soft cloud in heavin & am chillin!

    This place has a different "vibe" from other communities. I like it here. I feel like I don't have to edit myself like I do on Facebook for fellow church members, teachers, colleagues, kids ... .

    I'm a fairly new member. I've been checking out the confessional for a while, but haven't posted until recently. 
    When I'm having a bad day (like today), just reading other posts makes me realize that I'm not alone.

    It gives me a place to go that I know someone out there will understand where I am coming from! I'm excited to get to know fellow mommies who get me!

    ScaryMommy has given me a place to vent and to receive and give support ,  It's let me know I am not alone in feelings like missing the heck out of my DS when i am at work, but then spending a day with him when he doesn't nap and does nothing but tantrum makes me wanna pull my hair out.  lol

    This site has made me relax a bit on the little "mommy mistakes" that I make with my daughter every single day.  I used to stress so much if I fed her mac and cheese three days in a row because she just WOULD NOT eat anything else.  I used to stress about only being able to give small gifts for birthday/Christmas.  But now I realize that lots of other moms are in exactly the same boat, and it's helped me relax a little.
