Welcome both. I hope you get as much from this place as I have done.
Bit of advice. AIBU - it doesn't represent the tone of the rest of the forum. It's a bit...erm...well, there are people there who could pick a fight in an empty room! So, maybe get a feel for the place before you venture into that bit.
Lots of advice and support here, lots of sub-topics, just post and don't be too worried if nobody replies - it's a busy place they will eventually.
