welcome and hope you feel at home here.
it is definitely a place where others can understand your issues.
i have found it to be a major part of my progress.
it even helps me stay away from other, more dangerous and harmful sites.
here i find the close connections with others who can emotionally empathize and clearly communicate support, caring and trust, because they share common experiences.
all the best,
There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. - Hamlet, Act 5, sc 2
