Hello all, 

I am a survivor who has never been good at reaching out for support, but I find that I am at a place in my healing that I can't get past. I am hoping that sharing with others will help me feel less alone and help me continue to heal.

You have cats and bikes in your life and you need help on top of that? Like there's anything better we could offer than that xD

Nobody's good at reaching out really until they practice for a while, it's a good step that you've started now, I know you'll get some good support here. And don't mind my being flippant, humour is just how I cope, I don't mean anything by it ^_^ Nice to meetcha.

Just reaching out at all is honestly a huge step and one which takes a tremendous amount of strength. Talking is not always easy. However, perhaps some slight comfort can be had knowing you are not alone and that others will be able to relate even if in general. Take your time with everything and simply do what feels best. This may even change quite a lot to be honest. My sincere hope is that you find some healing and immense support here.

:luck:

You already started healing when you made the decision to reach out :) It'll be an ongoing thing from here. The journey tends to be messy, but you've got a few hundred regular members on your side to help you through it.
