New Member Introduction
« on: June 18, 2021, 08:09:08 PM »
Hi All!
I wanted to say hello & that I am happy to have found this forum, after some strange stalker experiences in Facebook groups. (I imagine I am not alone in that experience on the main social media sites). I am so glad that old school forums still exist! Thank you for running this awesome site!
I have been looking for a dependable support group site off social media to have a place to feel understood about a malignant narcissistic and possibly sociopathic mother who seems intent on playing some kind of Munchausen By Proxy games with my medical care (I have a genetic condition & disability).
I hope to get to know all of you better and give support and insights from my experiences. Big hugs to every survivor for being here.

Welcome Artlover. Cool name!

I think you will find great comfort in your conversations on the forum. It's a very special in place indeed.

I hope that despite your disordered mother, you are safe and are receiving the care you need.  See you on the boards.
It gets better. It has to.

Howdy hi ArtLover!
I think you may see that you have come to the right place.
I spend a lot of time lurking but I do not know where I would be without the good advice and down to earth talk that I get here.
Big hugs right back at ya!  :bighug:

Anyone else being prompted with each action to go through a five or six step verification process?  (when posting, replying, responding on even my own thread) lol this beats FB trolls but probably too much!

since the admin team are all volunteers we have to crack down on spam postings so the filters block that because nobody has time to remove multiple posts about kitchen cabinets, black market viagra or passports. i think it stops at the tenth post but let me know if i'm wrong.  no one has ever asked before.
