Thanks for being my friend

I've always wanted to know what it felt like to have a best friend. To be able to talk to someone about everything... my fears, dreams, secrets, accomplishments. 

I have always had a problem expressing or opening myself up to people because either they don't care or don't understand. 

I'm so grateful for this forum. Even though I don't know any of you individually or personally, I'm thankful that I can share even my most insignificant thought without fear of rejection or criticism. 

It's so hard facing this addiction alone. I appreciate all of your shares, your stories, words of encouragement and for taking the time to read mine.
