Just Wanted To Say Hello,

Recommended Posts

Stumbled upon these forums recently while trying to sort through things. I'm 23 and from the U.S. on the west coast. I graduate from college in December with my BA in journalism and media studies. I really enjoy writing and in my spare time I like to paint and draw, I used to commission artwork with my sister.

I'm hoping to get the chance to talk with people who might understand what I'm going through. Thanks for taking time out to read this.

Hello torquoises, welcome. I'm sorry about what brought you here. You are not alone.

It sounds like you have skills you could use in your healing: writing, drawing and painting.

Healing is possible.

Take care.
