Hi, I’m Kara. I have been a frequent visitor (e.i. lurker) to the site and forums; but just recently joined. I’ve always been drawn to Magic, but I have only been practicing solitary for not quite a year now. I suffer from social anxiety disorder which causes a great deal of stress and panic when talking to or meeting others. Being at home with my husband and dogs, or out in nature are about the only places I’m truly comfortable. But I do want to learn more and grow; and doing it completely solo can get a bit overwhelming. This site has by far been one of the best resources I have found, and the community seems extremely kind and helpful (as I said lurker). I am going to try and post in the forums, which will probably mostly be if someone is talking about their dogs
I am very happy to have found this and really looking forward to seeing where my path will lead me.
