Hello. :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm YellowBird.

I joined this forum because I'm really struggling with what everyone else here is and I want people who can relate to what I'm going through, but I don't feel ready to discuss it face to face with anyone in therapy.

This seems like a really great place with a lot of supportive people, and I hope to get to know everyone soon!

Hi, thanks for the welcome.

I think I need to add this to my intro: I was trying to post in a couple places earlier but noticed I couldn't bring myself to directly mention what happened. I was writing, "Since I was... I have had trouble eating," but it felt like running into a brick wall to try to say it directly. So I do have a lot to try and talk about, but I will probably be slow in posting and please be patient with me if I kind of skirt around any direct use of certain words. Thanks and sorry!

Thank you everyone!

And wow, thank you Elinay! I love photography too. I like to take black and while informal portraits. I like taking pictures of people the best. I've tried nature photography but sadly I'm not as good as it as you are.
