Each time I sign in to SF, I do my "tour" of the different threads and posts. I put my own 2 cents in where I can. But I can never bring myself to come here. I want so badly to welcome all you new members. To tell you what a truly remarkable place you have just found. A place that for many is impossible in real life, a place to just feel you belong and are heard. Where you will find unconditional support and caring from people who are no different than you. People that are feeling and thinking the same things you are. A place to make a few new friends. A place to discover you are not alone. But I cant. And the reason is because it hurts to know so many people are hurting so badly. Needing a place like SF. So I do my "tour" knowing that you are being welcomed here by some of the best members SF has to offer. I "lurk" and wait for you to post somewhere else then unleash myself with advice and caring words. So guess after it's all said and done... welcome. Please grab hold of one or several of the hands that are going to come your way. Let the support and care of the members here help you through the dark days and they'll be there to enjoy the bright days too. But most importantly, welcome to a place that you can belong as long as you need to. And even maybe one day, to be able to do those same things for another new member.
