Nice to Know I am not all alone....

Hi there fellow travelers! My name is Terry and I cannot tell you how much hope and prayers are in this posting. I just started SJW about 2 weeks ago....and I am so hopeful that I may have made a beautiful discovery. Not only is it great to hear and read other people and their experiences and fears, etc., I have to say that for the first time in longer than I care to admit, I feel hopeful. I have so many questions, and so many things I want to share, and hear and exchange. But for now I wanted to say hello. I am a 43 y.o. professional male who for the last 8-9 months has felt that I have completely fallen apart and and am standing there naked looking at the chaos around me feelling totally scared and vulnerable and not knowing how to fix things or where to turn. God knows I have grasped at all kinds of straws.........my faith has been shaken, and my hopes dimmed....So, anyways, not to sound melodramatic, but I would love to connect with some of you and share some fears, hopes, and experiences if nothing else, just to feel like I am not alone. Thanks so much for listening.............and thanks to the powers that be for this forum and sight!!
