  • The community has truly come to feel like a family, somewhere I can be open, honest and myself. For me it has taken the battle out of my head and instead to somewhere I can get advice or simply tell about my daily struggles and triumphs. And be understood! Shaye's guide and her support and advice on the site are invaluable tools in this recovery journey, for which I am truly grateful :-) ■■■ http://t.cn/A6Pq6ilz
