Well, Chris - Welcome to MS. You did what many have done before you, that is lurked in the backround reading posts and becoming familiar with the environment. Nothing wrong with that. All the while you were learning, discovering and finding your comfort zone. Good on you!

And you're right, none of this is easy, but it does get easier once you've made connections with guys that you relate well with.

My advice? Take your time and go at your own pace - take what works for you here and just ignore the rest.

Welcome Chris,

Many of us did the same thing.

Take your time, read, learn, and post when you are ready.

Recovery is something you have to do yourself but you can't do it alone.

You have started your journey.

We are proud of you.

Juni

Well done Chris! You did it! I remember how difficult it was for me at first, and for months I didn't really say a lot.

I will get Lewis, our Teen Coordinator, to contact you and we'll see about getting you into the Teen Forum as well. Meanwhile, if you have any questions or problems please do contact me by PM.

Much love,
Larry
