    Hello

    It’s nice to meet everyone.

    I saw a post, with everyone putting what they were proud of that day. It made my cry but I still liked it because it made me think maybe I do have things to be proud of. Maybe posting this could be one.

    I tried to create a login, but I already had an account from 4 years ago. I guess I’ve felt bad for years, for as long as I can remember. I feel numb most of the time, but sometimes I get so overwhelmed it’s like all I’ve ever felt and all I’ll ever feel.

    Anyway, thanks for reading this. It feels a little weird to write out to the internet, but kind of nice too.

    H

    Hi h.mac,

    Yes yes yes, it's really great to make this step, you're doing great. Allow yourself to put a little smile on your face.

    No it's not weird at all, that's the reason why BB forum exists, treat here as your home, there're so many listeners and advisors. There're people with similar lived experience as yours and can understand you better.

    Please do not hesitate to share your stories and feelings, we're supporting each other.

    Mark

    Hi h.mac,

    Good to meet you, however you managed to get here! Even that your post count has begun from 1, although you said you had an account from 4 years ago. I shrug my shoulders, & say "Hi'"

    I hope we can help. Please tell us more, when you are ready, & we can talk about it.
