Thank you for the warm welcome. It's encouraging, truly! I'm a good listener, but have never been a good talker about myself. Working up the strength and boldness to let it out even in writing is tough.
I am new here, trying to get my feet under me. It's hard to talk about anything that has happened, let alone how I may feel about it. So, here's to the process, and thank you everyone for your courage in speaking out.
