• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

hi, i have never used a forum before. Also do not have instant messaging or anything. Trying to figure out how to start communicating. I am a bit slow when it comes to all this. I just know i feel very down, and would like to feel less alone.


well there are a few ways, you can pm someone just click on a persons name to the left of the post, this is like an email but held within the site. they can also be sent from the user cp on the top bar. or you can go into chat which is like a group chat room for the people on the site the number in the []'s is how many people are in there.

welcome and feel free to experiment to get yourself used to things here.
Hello curious and :welcome: to SF. It won't be long until you are familiar with everything here and able to navigate around well. Take care. :hug:

I don't have instant messaging either, but I do post a lot here cause everyone here is my friend.:smile: I find a lot of comfort from my friends here and I think you will too - everyone on this forum is very compassionate and giving and understanding. We know from sad experience what it feels like to feel all alone and hopeless.:sad: But you're no longer alone - you have all of us!!:smile: You're not as likely to feel hopeless having such good friends to lean on and draw strength from - that's why we're here: to give help when we have it to give and to ask for it when we don't. I hope to see you around here often. It's a lovely place, and a lifesaver to me.:smile:

sending love and hugs,

Welcome to the forum :)

As Gentlelady and Least have said - it won't take too long before you can navigate around here well :hug: , and the members at this site are very compassionate :)

Take care, hope to see you around the forum!
