 β€œthat's exactly what brought me here to this online community - to find connection and share similar lived experiences” – @Strivetothrive here

 

β€œYou're not alone in how you're feeling and I hope you can move forward and able to function better too and improve your quality of life. β€œ – @oceangirl here

 

β€œYou will find so many people here with similar stories and life journeys. Whilst we are all different and have our own unique experiences, it is certainly a place where we all have our own stories to tell and our own experiences to deal with - so you will not only be believed but supported by people that get it and can empathise.” – @Zoe7 here
