I have to definitely say, the warm welcome is more than encouraging. Last year, I joined a different forum out there that I won't name. There was a thread where people were asked to tell their story, so I did. The responses I got were negative, judgemental, and very critical. I never returned to that site again. Even my welcome post wasn't a good experience.
So let's just say I feel already that I've gotten off on the right foot and I think this could be the place for me.
Most likely I will tell my story on the 'tell your story' page, soon. I'm finding the more I share, the less chaotic I feel. I see that this place is monitored and people take care of eachother here, keeping negative experiences away from those who just don't need that. So I feel safe. Already.
You can tell...I can't seem to stop rambling on and on here LOL
Thanks all for the warm welcome!
