  1. “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.”
  2. “I find it jaw dropping how casual and straightforward you

    are about discussing this stuff. I don't talk about it with anyone.”
  3. “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.”
  4. “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.”
  5. “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.”
  6. “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.”
  7. “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.”
  8. “If I can help people understand what it’s like for

    people who struggle with this, it’s worth it.”
  9. “In my community, the Open Source community, I think I

    can help. So I’m going to try.”
