  1. Dear Members,

    I am very nervous and scared to be here, but am more worried to be not. I know I need help. It has gone too far.
    I can say no more.

    Take Care and Be Safe

    Welcome, though a welcome here is never under the best circumstances. Regardless that, you have peer support here that is hard to find elsewhere.
    Have you considered sitting down with someone you trust, someone who perhaps believes in you, a mentor, coach, teacher, relative, doctor, clergy, or better: sibling or parent? Discuss with them how you feel and don't hold back. Let them know that this is serious and that it should be treated no differently than if you were having a pain in your kidney, or some other "physical" disease type symptom(s).

    Here's wishing you best wishes and good luck - pave forward, there is strength in seeking help and there is truth in understanding that there is hope.
