  1. Welp here goes nothing... Hello!

    Hi @Cam♂, and welcome. I’m glad you found this site and I look forward to getting to know you better.
  2. New

    Hi @HurtingMommy. I’m sending you healing thoughts and empathy.
  3. New here

    Hi @Engenbran, I hope you are starting to get used to the site. I remember when I first joined feeling completely unsure of how to even “get around” the site. I’d never been part of any online community before. It is a good place—I am glad you found it.
  4. Hi

    Hi @SPNEmB it’s good to meet you. I know you’ll find support and kindness here, and yep, NOT your fault!
  5. Hi im new and need some people to talk to ty

    Hi! I’m up and I am glad you found this place. I’m glad to hear you if you feel like company.

    Hi @KindaConfused, and welcome. I remember feeling something like what you express here, and as hard as it was, I needed to look around, take my time, read some stories, and let it sink in. If someone had volunteered answers or opinions at that point, I am certain that I would’ve run away—never mind that I thought I was ready for answers. You are welcome here, and I am glad to meet you. I learned that the “share your story” part is sometimes graphic, and there were times that I needed that. You might too, or you might not. The “gathering place” seems to be where people post daily trials and get reinforcement. Look around and feel free to reach out if you need it.
  7. How powerful and exciting that you are redefining this time of year! Good job!

  9. Ready to talk

    Hi @PBJ17, I looked and listened for quite a while before even joining! I’m glad you’re here—take all the time you need.

    @NssAngel9, it means a lot to us too. It’s good to have a place to talk, and also have a place to support others.

    Hi @NssAngel9, welcome! I was really nervous when I joined a couple of months ago, and I am really glad that I stuck with it—it IS good to process and feel my way through things with others who “get it”. I look forward to getting to know you better!

    Hi @l3anne, and welcome! From a purely practical standpoint, maybe start with some of the Gathering Place posts, and maybe the blogs. The Fun and Games part is low stress too. Share My Story is powerful, and you’ll want to consider what kind of mood you’re in and whether/when is a good time to look in there. You’ll be struck right away by how kind and supportive people are here; I am glad you found this spot!
  14. Noob here, first post

    Hi, and welcome! I think you’ll find this a healing place to be, and I know you’ll get lots of support here. Take all the time you need, and for what it’s worth, I kind of thought you were “supposed to” share your story here, but after being here several weeks I’ve realized that it is just one of many ways you can interact with this community. So don’t think you have to be in any kind of hurry, ok? Take your time, get comfortable, look around—all on your own timetable. i look forward to getting to know you!
  15. Thank you

    Hi, @Heart. I think you’ll be safe here. I was worried about that when I joined, but I has turned out to be about the safest place I’ve ever been. Welcome.
