    Hi Jacques g and welcome...

    Your post made me smile and I needed to smile today. Thank you.

    You're right... That very first post is so hard to write let alone to post. But you have done it and I'm glad you did.

    This is a friendly community. Join in posts that appeal to you. Search for topics that interest you and join the conversation if you would like to. It is intimidating being new but you will find your feet in time.

    Your thread here is yours to direct the conversation to whatever you need to talk about. We all have different styles so no pressure to write in a particular way. If it helps you can write as if chatting to a friend. Sometimes I write letters to myself or lists. However you can get the words out we're happy to have you reaching out.

    Hope to see you around the forums.

    Nat

    Hello Jacques g, can I also offer you a warm welcome to the forums, and it's always very brave to start a new thread as people may tend to write a comment, but then decide to edit it, to eventually deleting it, only wishing they had posted it, so well done for doing so.

    There are so many issues that could lead you to stress, whether it's work, your relationship/marriage, work problems or your social life and each of these are just as important as the other and more importantly could involve with one or another.

    Please take your time and remember it wasn't easy for us when we first posted.

    Take care.

    Geoff.
