Glad that you are here! I hope that the site will be just what you are looking for.
In comparing the 2 sites, since the same software is used, the sites function pretty much the same. However, there are some differences. For example, there is no section dealing with fashion and makeup here. When people have these kinds of questions, I often refer them to CDH. Not that people don’t respond here, but there will probably be more responses on our sister site.
I encourage you to complete your Profile page. It really helps other members to understand your situation, where you struggle and your goals. It will always be readily accessible and may be updated at any time if something changes.
