I believe you're going to love it here -- this is a group of amazingly kind and supportive people who share knowledge, empathy, and war stories!
You're so smart to come "out of hiding"
, because I can tell you from experience that the motivation and support you get from other people working on the same thing at the same time is SUCH a help. And you get to know one another a bit, so you really get a feeling of comradery and community. Make sure you read everything, and post as often as you feel comfortable doing -- and come back OFTEN! It will really, really help you.
It's nice to have you here, and I look forward to hearing more from you. Welcome to our group.
