We all have come together here to post about the disorder, ways to cope, technical topics, and benefit from the experiences of others who understand. Many of us just jump in and go with the flow, which is ok for a while, but like any journey, it helps to have a map and at least a basic plan.

Talk to us. Maybe we can help you organize a bit.

Some of the basics when starting up:

Dedicate 1 post, it doesn’t have to be long, to tell your story.  Identify the involved parties (e.g., children), the relationship arrangment, some defining events, and what brought you here.  This will help members better follow your future threads;
Fill in your member profile and link to the post above;

Select a Board to work on and do a quick “first read” of the Lessons - spend 30 minutes - just get a basic idea of it for now;

Buy one of the recommended foundational books.  You may not feel like reading right away, but it having is the first step to reading it;


Express yourself!
Why not add a little personality and warmth to your screen name? We have added to our collection and now have over 800 avatars to choose from. If you haven't shopped for an avatar in a while, come take a look!
