Hi All
Good Afternoon.
I am new to this group and have been looking for support from people in similar situations to myself. 
I have been feeling very isolated and alone lately and hope to meet others for advice/support and general conversation.

    Hello @In_need_of_sanity and welcome to our online community.  I'm so pleased you found us.

    It's been a difficult year and a lot of our members are feeling lonely too.  The good news is, there's almost always one of us about to have a friendly chinwag.  A good place to start is the Coffee Lounge where we have lots of varied discussions going on and fun games.  Feel free to join in.

    Is there anything that is particularly bothering you that we can help with?  We are non-judgemental and would love to help if we can.

    Hi All. Thank you for welcoming me to the group. Apologies for the late response.  
    I have had a brief look around but need practice. 
    I have no specific questions just yet. I hope to be popping in to the coffee lounge at some point later today.

    Welcome to the community @In_need_of_sanity, it's great to have you aboard :) 

    It definitely takes a little bit of time to get used to the layout of the community but I'm sure you'll figure it out in no time :) 

    Yes I would recommend browsing the coffee lounge and getting involved, please don't hesitate to ask if something doesn't make sense or if you need help getting around the community.

    Welcome to the community @In_need_of_sanity! Great to have you with us. I see you posted really early this morning. Do you find it hard to sleep?

    I hope the coffee lounge is able to make you a cup of tea of coffee (other beverages are available...) and you can chat with others. :)
