    Hello @poppito and a warm - if belated - welcome to the community. I am very sorry we don't seem to have been able to get back to you sooner. Like many others, I am a volunteer here and, yesterday, it seems that we were in short supply. I am genuinely sorry about that, but promise you I got to your mail as quickly as I possibly could. You are important to us.
    Now that you've taken the first step, please be aware that this is a safe place and that you are among friends here. Whatever experiences you have had or are going through, whatever your troubles are or have been, you will almost certainly find people here who have experienced something similar, who care and can empathise with you. Don't hesitate to talk to us, to ask us questions or to tell us anything about yourself. The better we get to know you and how you feel, the more easily we may find ways to help you.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
