I am still a newbie here. You don't know me that well and I don't know you guys that well yet, either. But you've made me welcome here.

I have spent years now by myself feeling like a fat, ugly, loser freak with no one but my shrink to talk to. In just these past couple of weeks, you folks have reminded me that other people live through things like I have and worse. I am not happy about your pain. Yet despite similar experiences, you are beautiful and brilliant and creative and kind. It gives me hope. Thank you for taking me in and letting me hang with the cool kids. Now I am going to take some migraine pills and take a nap with my dogs. It's period week which means it is also perpetual headache week, yay! I hope none of you barfed your lunch because of my sappiness, I needed to say it.
