    Hello to yourself, it can be awkward for people to be uncertain about what to say or how much they should disclose to people they don't know, well briefly it's anonymous, nobody knows who you are, and even if you mention your condition and think that any family and/or friends will know who is posting, then please don't worry, we have many people with similar troubles and it would be difficult to semise who is posting.

    Just start slowly so then we can begin to help you.

    Geoff.

    Welcome to the bb forum.

    Please know that you have arrived at a place of non-judgemental support, a safe place to share what’s on your mind.

    Many people write about their mental health journeys, seeking support and guidance along the way. Some people vent. Still others are looking for connection or alternative views on a specific issue or challenges they are encountering.

    When you are ready, we look forward to learning about what brought you here and offering our support.

    Kind thoughts to you
