Re: Introduce yourself here

@Zoe7 thanks for getting back to me. I'll look around and take it at my own pace. I don't want to rush myself as I'm really delicate. I have an inner strength but I guess we're talking about other people lol so I want to be as gentle as I can about venturing out. I also want to be careful I don't wear you out at the same time as offending everybody and creating a lawsuit! Only kidding 😋


I'll be fine.


Re: Introduce yourself here

Take it at your own pace @Late It is important you do what feels comfortable for you and you experience the forum in your own unique way. As for offending people - just be yourself - that is enough Smiley Very Happy

Re: Introduce yourself here

@Zoe7 it's nice to talk with you.


I am totally new to all of this and don't know what to expect. I guess I'll just wander around, read and post.

Re: Introduce yourself here

Jump in on any thread you feel comfortable to add your voice to @Late Take a look at some of the social threads as well - there are ones for dog lovers, cat lovers, art, craft, a community garden and sport just to name a few. I frequent some of those threads and it is a good place to meet new people with shared interests - and they aren't as heavy as some of the other threads - might be a place to start to work your way into the forum (just a suggestion though - you jump in where you feel able to do so) Smiley Very Happy

Re: Introduce yourself here

Hi everyone,
I’m lonely and incredibly anxious.... it’s gotten really bad lately.... unfortunately it’s probably something I will suffer from all my life, on and off.
And it’s horrible...
I wish there was an easy fix!

Re: Introduce yourself here

Hi @Al1ce Can you pinpoint what is making you so anxious? Sometimes knowing that can help us to deal with it.

Re: Introduce yourself here

Hi! Your clarity and bravery is inspiring. I am still working on acceptance of my illness.

Re: Introduce yourself here

Thank you!

Re: Introduce yourself here



So I've recently gone through a manic episode and am now trying to piece things back together.


1. I love to sing

2. Music is a big part of my healing process.

3. I play golf.
