    Hi Tim thanks for the welcome, I've been a long time follower but I guess I just wasn't really ready to put myself out there, I have complex mental health issues that come with many lables but all I know is that I don't feel good, I have become quite good at masking my illness, only my immediate family knows what's going on, the problem is that it's so exhausting trying to function on a daily basis, thanks for the shoulder it's very helpful,

    You have taken a big step in posting here so I hope you feel good about that.The community here are supporting and non-judgemental. So when you are ready to tell more of your story I will listen as will others here.

    For myself, keeping the feelings bottled inside was the worst thing I could do. Being able to talk to someone then was the best thing for me. - so I now periodically talk with a psychologist. And, for me (again) it feels like a weight get lifted from my shoulders.I would think that was alone and weak for not being able to cope. You are not alone. Perhaps I can walk some of this journey with you.

    Tim
