Hi Zahina,

Welcome!! :)

I hope you feel at home soon. :flowers:

It's quite alright to "lurk" around here until you feel more comfy to post. It's good to see you feel confident enough now to introduce yourself. Well done! It can be so hard to type out the post and then hit "submit".... But you did it. :)

Take all the time you need, hun..... There's no rush, and when you feel you want to share some, you'll find this community to be supportive and caring. There's no judgement here, we all understand how hard it can be to talk. I am sorry for what you went through, but I am glad you have joined us. :)
