Not Just An Addiction...

When I got an email from a friend of mine, suggesting I come over and check out this website, I was skeptical. Mainly because I was already a member of a number of other sites and I wasn't sure I wanted to join up with another. But he told me that this site was different and that I would find other people here with similar situations, similar feelings, and it would be easy for me to open up and it might be a good place for me to find a way to heal. He knew I was hurting and how alone I was feeling.

I came and started looking around. I read a few stories and was beginning to feel right at home. There were others here experiencing same feelings I was. The more I read, the more I felt I could open up. It's been a long time since I've even wanted to share feelings and stories. A lot of it has been bottled up inside me for many years. While I'm still learning to open up, it's getting a little easier as I make new friends who understand where I've been, how I feel, and why I feel the way I do. I am beginning to realize that I cannot heal alone as I've been trying to do the last 40 years.

For those of you who have entered my life and my heart, I am very grateful.
