Hi ailujym
If you have used your own name or are concerned that you are recognisable on the forum it is always possible to have your username changed. If this is something you would like to do please email email@gamblingtherapy.org or contact the Helpline.
It is important, however, for the continued success of the forum that as many different stories remain visible as possible because it is through them new members get to know that their problem are recognised and understood. Although sharing is the life-blood of this site it is understood that there are some things that members prefer not to put on a public forum and to this end I am happy to hear from you and answer your questions. Please contact email@gamblingtherapy.org or the Helpline for my personal email address.
I have been wondering what was going on in your life and look forward to an update.
