Im quite mature for my age.. in all honesty im a bit of a loner, im not studying right now but am looking for part time work. I enjoy art, writing etc as well as a lot more. I hope i can get to know a few of you and that i can help as many people as possible too. :blush: I hope you're all doing ok and im sending you all my best wishes :luck: take care x

Hey Meg,

Welcome to AfterSilence :) - I'm glad you've decided to come here and no you're certainly not too young to be here :), as dodo said it's 14 to infinity, I generally try to bluff I'm in the infinity bracket also :P, however I can only get away with saying I'm 18, (19 next month :)) and have been here since I was 16, so there's certainly no worries being that age, and from what I got from being here from 16 is that people didn't seem to refrain from talking to me because of my age, infact because we can't actually see you, generally people just go on how mature someone sounds in what they right, rather than there actual age :). That's what I've found anyhoo :)

I think being abit of a loner is all good here too :) I'm pretty shy myself, although I do have my good and close friendships, which is good :) So yeah I'd say I'm abit of a loner too, although I do seem to have become more open as I've gotten older, so maybe the same will happen with you too? :) Possibily :flowers: - I hope to get to know you also and I hope that you get to know many people here at AS, and that we can all offer support and help each other through the hard times, because that's really what AS is all about so it's great to hear you're also hoping to help others also, because as well as getting support, AS is also a great place to give support to your fellow survivors, which is in its own right quite helpful to yourself also :)

Anyhoo, I've prob gone on enough for now, all I wanna say now is welcome and I look forward to seeing you here and please feel free to PM me anytime :flowers:
