Welcome SLG.

Don't worry. I feel the exact same way you do all the time. I've posted so many posts here already and some days I just want to delete them all. Then I don't and I feel sort of empowered by it. Hang around, offer your own tips and listen to everyone elses if that is easier.

With time, even just being here, reading and identifying with people (although very hard most of the time) helps a lot.


And of course whenever you are ready hon. There are many people here to offer support and an ear if you need ok? <3<3<3

Welcome, SLG!

Hon, my heart went out to you with your first post. I cannot begin to count how many times I've started to post something then simply cancelled it out. smile.gif We all go through it but the wonderful thing is that here they/we understand. Thank you for coming back and introducing yourself. I'm pleased to meet you, although very sorry for the reasons that brought you here. I hope this place helps you as much as it has helped others and me. It's a very good place with many caring people who will listen at the drop of a hat. Hang in there, sweetie. It does get better... sometimes it seems that it gets better too slowly but, you know, even slow progress is progress nonetheless.
