Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry you have a need to be here but I'm very glad you found us. I know how much it meant to me to find the company of others who've been where I've been and experienced what I've experienced. I've always known I wasn't (couldn't be) the only person in the world to experience what I have but that was kind of like only intellectual knowledge. Finding others to talk with has helped me be a lot easier on myself.
By the way, I'm now in NY (western, near Rochester) but I'm originally from northern California. As much as I like New York, I still miss my Humboldt County. I suppose I always will. Again, welcome to After Silence!
