Thanks for all the welcomes, everyone! I feel pretty much at home already lol. Truth be told, I've been on this one thread trying to tell my life story for literally almost 4 hours. It's quite an ordeal, and I've never told it all in one chunk. Actually, I'm probably not gonna get everything in anyway, but just the atmosphere of these boards sends the message that I can get everything out in the open- which is nice to have for a change.
