    Hello

    Yessssssss!!! So glad that you enjoy ME, too!!! Awesome! Actually this is my first time playing through all the games. I played Andromeda first whenever it came out, and I didn't think it was that bad. It was good enough that it made me want to check out the older games when the Legendary edition came out. And I'm so glad that I did! They're amazing. So far, 2 is my favorite. 1 was good, 3 is good, but 2 is great imo. I'm making all the "good" choices. Paragon all the way. I'm super excited for ME4...I really hope they go back to what the first three games were about. Like you said, meaningfu

    Hello

    That's awesome! I love RPG's, too. Surprisingly, I haven't played Skyrim yet. It's on my "want to play" list foreverrrrr. I've heard such great things! I'm currently playing Dragon's Dogma (an amazing RPG I've played a million times, too hehe), Pokemon Brilliant Diamond (yes, I love the Pokemon games), Mass Effect 3 (a third person shooter, I love this series), and Nier: Automata (I just started it, it seems very interesting!). I play a lot of games at once...I can't help it. I like variety lol. I'm so glad to meet you!

    Welcome, Breeze. So glad you found your way here. I noticed in your interests that you like gaming? Same! Video games are my life! Always nice to meet other gamers here. Wishing you all the best. I hope you find healing here. -Finchy
  19. Sitting with you, Poppy. Those are some incredibly painful memories to recount. I'm so sorry for what happened to you. You were so young and innocent and did not deserve any of it. It's very hard to think of these memories and talk about them, but you're doing it. I'm proud of you. You will heal. Please be extra gentle with yourself, ok? Be kind to yourself. You deserve love and support and care. We're here for you.

  23. Welcome to AS, Ziggy! Nice to meet you. I'm glad you found your way here. You'll find a lot of wonderful, supportive people here. You're not alone. Wishing you all the best. -Finchy
  24. Hello and welcome to AS, @flybygone! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through, however. It was wrong and painful, and you were a child...it was so undeserved. I'm so sorry. It takes time to heal, and it takes time to build up to a point when you feel READY to heal. So it's ok that you're 37. There's no age limit to starting to heal. It's totally normal to be nervous in a new place, too. But please know that you're safe here. AS is filled with kind, caring, and supportive people that have been where you've been. You're not alone. I would suggest
  25. Triggered by seeing a name in an email...fun stuff. Could use hugs. ❤️
