I don't think any of us have said that this forum cannot be used for relationship advice, for people ion crisis ; only that very very long mesages about relatively trivial and minor relationship problems ( and I have received many of those ) are not welcome. And venting is fine --- just start the Subject title with VENT. I know that many people find benefit in venting, even without expecting a response.
It's a pity that many shrinks are not more available. When I was in direct practice, I always tried to keep one or two slots a day available for crises. However, do hang on and work on these concerns of yours with your own shrink who of course should know you better and be able to help more directly.
Meanwhile, as Tango points out, there is also the Cybershrink Annex we set up for people to chat with each other where a psychiatric input was not needeed.
