Nerves are natural. I didn't find it condescending. It is good to know you have found a path out of the forest and good of you to take time to share. I didn't find your post weird, I agree with a lot of what you have said around embracing all emotion and experience.
Welcome to the site and feel free to post as much or as little as you like wherever you like. We are not a busy site but we support one another as best we can and newbies are always welcome.
Starting your own thread in the Newbies and Mutual Support rooms is a good idea. They tend to be busiest and where you will get most responses.
