A Very Nervous "hi"

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

REALLY nervous as this site is MUCH bigger than I thought it might be.

I'm 42 and found a link to this site from one here in the UK. Just putting my date of birth in a different format threw me!

Anyway, although I hate there to be a need for sites like this, I'm REALLY grateful there are.

I hope I can find my way around!

:hi:

Welcome. It's a tragic expression of our culture's current state that AS needs to exist but here we all are and I hope you find support and connection here.

Hi Azaria welcome to AS :flowers: I can totally relate to being surprised about the size of this site, I was amazed myself when I first joined. Although there are many people here, I hope you will not feel overwhelmed. This is such a wonderful supportive site. I hope that you will find us all to be great help along your healing journey. If you need anything at all feel free to pm me. Take care.

Thank you for your very kind replies and welcomes, will hopefully feel as brave as all of you and be able to share a bit more of my story and struggles over time-still all very new, but am amazed at everyones bravery and courage in posting their own stories.

This feels like a safe space in a horribly unsafe world.

:thanks:

:ThankYou: ALL VERY VERY much. I've been made to feel so welcome here and am glad that I have a chance to make some new friends who I don't have to pretend with and also friends that I hopefully can give back something to as well. Though there are people that are empathetic that haven't been through our experiences, there is such a richness of communication and understanding among those of us who have.

I am really sorry for the things that led you here but I am glad that you found your way to AS. Take your time and look around; I am sure that you will be feeling comfortable and at home in no time. There are some great people here who will offer you the support and encouragement you are looking for and deserve. Take good care of yourself and know that you aren't alone.
