First welcome this is a great place that can offer a lot of fun, great knowledge and some well timed snark. At the top of the main screen there is a green section. In there, there is a newbie link. Read that because it has a ton of good stuff in it.
Second TTC can make you cray cray so find some hobbies that will distract you. Otherwise this could feel like a really long road.
Third a forum or message board it meant to create conversation. A blog is meant to exprerss feeling. A lot of ladies here blog to release this stuff. Sounds like that might help you.
Other than that good luck and hope your stay is short and sweet.
all of this, check out the daily 2ww thread, welcome, and good luck to you!!!
