Hi All, I am a new member to this site, though I have been lurking for awhile now thinking about what to say. I find it very difficult to talk about my experience in real life so I (with the help of my therapist) have made a hierarchy to help me slowly work up to sharing my story on here, in what I think is a pretty safe environment, with the goal of eventually being able to talk about it in person. This post is 20/100. If anyone reads this and is also feeling the same way, please know that I am here with you and although this is scary, I feel even a little empowered just by posting this very basic email. I look forward to getting to know you all. Be kind to yourselves!
