    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!

    Hey, great post! Congrats for having the bravery to post, it's a massive step to take. Well done!
    Hopefully this will be a really validating and safe place to post. It has been for me.
    I found having a trauma diary really helpful, that may seem really scary and not an option at the moment for you, but it's been a really great space to declutter my brain.
    Well done again for posting.
