In many cases our fears are considerably worse than the reality. This has been true for so many here, so I’m glad that you have experienced this.
I really appreciate that you have taken the time to complete your Profile page. I usually have to remind people to do that, but it is important for 2 reasons. It serves as a way to help others understand your situation and where you are headed. It is also a living document as you can update it at any point as things change for you. You can’t do that with regular posts.
