Hi, I’m new here but I know that was written some years ago but it’s scary how spot on those words are for me. I’m scared as hell to be writing this but I figure it can’t get much worse And i am already exhausted and tried so many other things. But one thing I have never tried is talking to people who have been through the same things as me. Maybe they might understand me maybe they won’t. Feeling no one understands me at all or cares is not a nice way to live. I have no idea where I am on my journey but thank you,
Thank you for writing those beautiful words.
There is always a silver lining.

Hi Shirley,

Welcome to a safe haven of the Web.

Talking with people who had similar experiences as myself was a breakthrough for me.

May you find the support you would like here.

With care,
Xanthia

You really hit the nail on the head for how I felt and still feel! I added my first post in Creative Writing and felt so much better after I had expressed how I felt and let it all out to others. Thank you for this fantastic place, I have only been a member for a day but I already feel safe and so much more hopeful about life. xxx
