    Bless you @allisonnixon27 it can be hard for some people, be assured we are all in the same boat darling, i think the best thing about this site is no one can see you and you won't be judged.
    You could start of in the coffee lounge on the games, you will get used to seeing the same people.

    Have you any plans for today ?

    It can feel a bit vulnerable putting yourself out there to so many people @allisonnixon27 but, as the others have said, we're a friendly bunch :) We're here to support you, so please just get involved at your own pace. Is there anything we can do to support you?
