Some people like to start at My Story, others like to start at My Voice. There are some excellent things in the Wonderful threads forum. Personally, it took me awhile before I told my story, and I didn't post for awhile just read. Please don't feel like you have to do one thing or another, just take your time.
Also, welcome to Pandys :)/>

I'm really sorry that you were hurt on other boards, one good thing about pandy's is that it's well moderated and insults like that won't be tolerated here. It's ok if you dont feel up to posting just yet, I know it took me ages. I think I started by just reading and then replying to certain posts. Take your time and get comfortable, remember there is no pressure to do anything

Thanks for your reply. I wanted to say that the board that I opened up on was not a support group board. I have been on that board (no longer there now) for quite awhile and I started to feel comfortable with the people and with certain threads, I would open up. But, it was the wrong place, but even so, I expected more compassion simply because we're human beings.

I don't read the my story fourm alot because I find it triggery. THough, I do read in my life, my voice, fun, and debates pretty often. (I don't post in debates, but very rarely though.) Chat is a good place to get to talk to people better.
I hope you find Pandy's supportive and helpful.
Take your time, you aren't under any time restrictions here,

I just wanted to say Welcome and that you can post where ever you feel comfortable. If you want to post your story then I would go to "My Story". Or you can start out by just replying to some threads in "My Voice". Whatever makes you feel comfortable. "My Life" is kinda for more off-topic stuff, but you can certainly post here. Sorry about the other board you were on, what's great about this place is that we never judge anyone. I hope you like it here and if you need anything you can PM me.
