I joined Sane Forums in October 2018. Depending on how my computer is running depends on my availability to be online. Still on windows XP (yes I know I need an update but also need money for that.....which will happen when I win Tatts lol.
I found out about the website from a TV advert. After seeing the ad a few times I decided to check it out. I found it to be very easy to use and had people replying to my introduction basically straight away. Everyone I have interacted with have been very caring and supportive.
None of my family or friends understand what it is like for me dealing with all my 'problems'. But here I feel I can say whatever is going on and no one judges me. I just get support and understanding. And most importantly I don't feel like I am the only one going through all this. Now I know that I am not alone when things 'go south'. It is extremely comforting to know that there are other people out there dealing with the stuggles of life.
Support and understanding is a huge thing and here you get both those.
Blessings to everyone out there. Take care and keep smiling.
