I'm so glad that I have been able to be a member here and give back to this community by being part of the staff.
I love how everyone here is always so supportive and understanding. Here I feel like I can be myself without having to pretend.
This place has shown me that I am much more than I thought I ever was and has create friendships that will last forever.
I'm sad that a place like this has to exist and by being part of team welcome I seee how many people pass through the pandys doors - but if any of those new members get/find just the smallest bit of what I have by being here, then I'm so happy that we can all find support and comfort and make it through all of this together.
Endless love and support to all of you out there :)/>

What do I like about Pandys?
I like how open, welcoming, and generous the people here are.
I like how organized the moderators have made it and how they keep us safe.
I like that I can ask for help, for a hug, for comfort.
I like that someone will admit that they are confused, that they can't relate but care, that they are thinking of you.
I like that people reach out. They read your posts and send you a hello, let you know you can vent.
I like that we give support even when we are struggling.
I like that the things you voice, your pain, your struggles, help me with my healing.
I absolutely love that we are all working together to give each other some of the safety and comfort that was taken from us.

we're a community where the shine has come off that word sometimes these days.
people at Pandys rarely make assumptions, which I think helps everybody to heal and find their own way.
there's such a generosity of spirit and that folks are very friendly here, and that even with loss or pain we reach out and quietly hold each other.
there's a lot of respect for everybody here, no matter circumstances.
Pandys is in a constant state of flux so that there's always something to get into no matter what your mood or stage of recovery or whatever.
there is openness and acceptance here.
Pandys is fun!!

I also was very touched by receiving personal e-mail welcome letters from some of the moderators. The beginning line of the site homepage is very moving: "We're sorry you need to be here..." How kind and thoughful a way to welcome people.
Needless to say, I'm grateful, and looking forward to sharing and receiving many healing moments.

Since then, I've met a lot of sincere, kind, helpful people -- people who have the compassion it takes to help me and the openness it takes to ask me to help them. I feel very supported here. What could be more important in a support forum?

The best rape support board I've found on the web.
