      @Free2Fly I’ve been great actually the time away was good for me doing a lot better feels like I’m healthy enough to be here again sharing and growing and learning from other survivors.

      That's great Brave 🙂, I'm glad your doing better.

  2. Guess I am going to make this a public announcement as well.  It is with a heavy heart I have decided to step down from NST/ AS staff to focus on my personal life.  I will still be here on AS and available to listen to anyone should you need a shoulder to cry on, I just need to step down and do some other things at this time.  I want to support and encourage anyone that would like to step up and help out here at AS, to volunteer and do so. It has been an incredible journey. This was a very difficult thing to do. Big warm hugs, and warm wishes to all.

  3. It’s official I got accepted got all my stuff in for school now to figure out how to pay for everything. Support and advise would be greatly appreciated.

      Congratulations!!!  :throb:

      I'm in the same boat.  I just filled out my FAFSA this afternoon.  It's never too early to do that if you haven't already.  Also, look into state grants and other means of getting some financial assistance. :)  Sometimes they want you to have filled out your FAFSA first, so that's a good place to start.  Wishing you all the luck in the world on your collegiate journey!

      Yay congrats! 

      I echo what Capulet said.  You also may be able to find some small scholarships online.  If your school has a financial aide person, you can also try talking to them; they may have some information on how to get additional funding.

      You got some good advice above, so all I have to say is... :yahoo:

      so I guess there's a good feeling even though there's also a sadness that the old car is gone. That's amazing, to see different parts  and allowing yourself to feel happy about the good part!

      i think our pain is worth a lot. it's real. it's experiencing ourself in a painful way. Hard to explain. I'm not saying we should want it

    Um I found this and had to share it with everyone here... I wouldnt but cha knoe

  22. I may not be having a good day but I'm learning that if I stand up to the fear and dread of doing things I usually enjoy myself and find there was nothing to be scared of. I am stronger then I believe I am
