I'm not really sure where to put this, but the reason I'm making this is quite simple. I have made over 1000 posts. That isn't really a big deal, but it's a big deal to me. I started here awhile ago for some reason too scared to post anything and I wanted to thank you all for giving me an opportunity to grow.  For pretty much my whole life I've been shy and too scared to talk to anyone, even a lot of my friends.

 I've been scared that people won't understand me, or that they won't give me a chance.  Because of my fear I'd just freeze up and not say anything, and even though I don't know any of you, I've had the same fear.  It's been hard for me to grow past it, and I don't know how it happened, but it did.  Does anyone have any similar experiences with any of this?  


I feel I've come along way. If for some reason you're here and have seen me post, I have a question for you. How have I done? I hope I haven't been a jerk or anything like that to anyone.
