First off, welcome, although our reasons for being here in the first place are tragic.. we're all here to support eachother and listen.. that is a good thing at least. It's ok to be scared. I am still very scared myself about it all. So don't worry, everyone here will listen and definitely understand.
You AREN'T alone.

Don't worry about being scared. You can just read if you want or post as little or as much as you choose to. Sometimes I get just as much out of this board by just reading.
