Hi!

I dont really know what to write here. I have recently begun dealing with a lot of my trauma more actively for the first time. That means both going through a process of getting certain parts of my health care covered as well as just trying to get my life together and heal.

Other things? Well, Im 23 and i am a gay man living with my boyfriend of nearly 4 years while trying to become a nurse. Hoping this place will be good for me. :)

I also want to congratulate you for your 4 year relationship with your boyfriend.

This IS a very good place for you to be to begin dealing with your trauma.

It is completely normal to be nervous when first becoming a member here.

Hello caoticneutral,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you have found a wonderful place for support. You will find members who are genuinely kind and understanding. It's a big step to reach out and another big step to do the self-care things you need to do. There will be many more steps I'm sure, and I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary
