hey, Accepted,

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,
lee
