Hi and welcome to the forum and I hope you'll find a place where we don't make snap judgements about each other. I think we've worked out that mutual support and affection works really well.

Hi Ali and welcome to the forum. I've always found everyone here to be incredibly supportive and understanding - you'll never find anyone suggesting you snap out of anything here as the majority of people here are fellow sufferers.

Hi Ali and :welcome:

It must be upsetting to experience people thinking that you are a "lunatic" or that you can "snap out of it" - no one here would ever think that. This forum is a very supportive environment that ascribes no expectations and refuses to make any form of judgement.

I have found that if you have a question or want to discuss a particular topic and feel able to ask it, then do so, because quite often there is someone else wanting to ask the same question or discuss that topic - usually me :LOL:.

If you need anything just ask. I hope to see you around the forum soon.

Take care

Companion
