I'm brand new to the forum and figured I'd start with an introduction post. Without giving much information you can probably guess why I'm here. Hoping this will end up as a useful resource for me as I struggle a lot with what's happened to me. I'm not quite sure what else to put here. I guess some small facts about me are I'm currently studying biology. I have big interests in art and the paranormal. A little out there but quite fun for me.

Hi and welcome!

I just joined last week and it's been helpful for me to have this as a resource. When I'm feeling like I'm about to be consumed by my thoughts I come on here and just get to typin' and respond to people or share my story, and it helps! Simply interacting with others here helps me a lot. I'm sorry you had to experience what happened to you but I'm glad you're here.

Welcome @sweeney. I'm so sorry you're unable to meet with your support group at this time. This pandemic continues to hurt people in so many indirect ways.

Biology, art, and the paranormal! That's such an unusual group of interests and I love it! It sounds like you're a pretty well rounded person. I can especially appreciate your love of biology. I find science as a whole to be incredibly interesting. Do you know what you'd like to pursue after your studies?

Hi sweeney, and welcome!

I am very sorry that you have reasons to be here, but you will find tons of support. Our members are understanding and kind. Feel free to look around and jump in where you feel comfortable. You are not alone. Except for a few movies, I really don't know much about paranormal, but I am glad it is something you find great interest with. As for art, this I am not so surprised about. I think many survivors find interest and talent in artistic areas. Perhaps you will share in our Creativity forum at some point?

Anyway, I do wish you the very best as you navigate this path of healing.
