Hi. I'm new here and don't really know what to say. I married to a survivor who is going through a hard time right now. I don't know what to do for her, so I thought I'd give this a try.

Hi, I'm new here too.
Everyone here has been so great.
We need more people like you who are willing to stand by and support someone you love who's been through something like this.
Much respect to you.
And welcome thumbsup.gif

just remember that you can't fix her or what happened to her, love her gently and w/ great respect, and ask her what she needs. that's how my bf is w/ me, and he has been my saving grace. good for you for caring.
peace. t.

Welcome smile.gif
Your wife is very lucky to have you! I would probably pass out from shock if my boyfriend ever did something this considerate!! Stick around, I'm sure you'll learn a lot.
