  4. “I simply wanted to write and say
    that I have never been able to
    put into words how I feel as
    well as you all did.”

  5. “I find it jaw dropping how
    casual and straightforward you
    are about discussing this stuff.
    I don't talk about it with
    anyone.”

  6. “For too long it’s even restricted
    my commitment to OS, not
    that I’m using it as an excuse
    for my lack of contribution.
    Sharing your thoughts like this
    and seeing the other side is
    really encouraging, despite
    what my brain wants me to
    think.”

  7. “It really sucks to have a brain
    that wants to continually
    sabotage you and keeps you
    from reaching your potential.
    Just know there are millions,
    and I do mean millions of
    people, that understand what
    you go through.”

  8. “I'd gone to a one day
    conference but was too
    nervous to talk with any of
    the other attendees, so even
    though I really enjoyed the
    presentations, I left feeling like
    an idiot for not introducing
    myself to anyone.”

  9. “I deal with the same kind of
    issues - especially anxiety. I've
    never really talked with
    anyone about it (besides my
    wife) but I may try to find a
    doctor or counselor to talk to.”

  10. “Listening to the latest @dev_hell
    is really making me think about
    how I treat people. You never
    know what someone else is
    going through.”
