I stick to General and D/S too. I dip my toe in NB now since my D is final, but I think I still have some anger issues, so D/S is better for me.
And giving back is definitely part of the healing process for me, and now that my D is final, hopefully I can help people just starting in D/S.
I had a few months of feeling strong enough to go into JFO, but for now, it's way too triggery for me.. Maybe one day I will feel strong enough for that again..
But some days it's better to just not post and not even look. When you are trying to support others, you can very easily project your own experiences into your responses and not be all that helpful or telling them what they really need to hear..
But I also just happen to like the people here, so when I'm not in the mood for triggers, they have this great forum called Fun & Games down at the bottom
