  1. I'm addicted to pretzels at the moment and have to eat them every day. No idea what they're made of. Is this similar to the pasta addiction?
  2. Hi Adrian and welcome. You seem kinda young to me (I'm 49) : ) L
  3. Hi and welcome. It's so hard at your age but it does get easier as you get older. I was once in your position but am now happily married, with a 21 year old son, and doing a job I love. I wish I could offer you some helpful advice but the best I can do is let you know that you're not alone, there are lots of us out here : )
  4. I also stuggle with my sense of identity and this isn't helped by my 'faceblindness' as unless I am looking in a mirror I don't know what I look like. I change depending on who I am with and this leads to people having a view of me that does not reflect who I am at all eg I have been told this week that I am very feminine despite the fact that I almost always wear trousers (feel like a man in drag in a dress) and have little or no interest in 'girly' things. Also, been asked to look after some documents for someone who believes I am well organised despite me having to give all my important documents to my mum or I lose them. I do not seem to have a sense of 'self' in my own right but only see myself in relation to other people eg as a mum, wife, daughter.
  5. Hello Gareth and welcome. I enjoy travel - my favourite place in the UK is Suffolk and I go there at least once a year. You are fortunate to live in Stowmarket.My favourite overseas country is India. It would be good to hear about some of theplaces you have visited. L : )
  6. Hi Mark. Welcome to the forum. Like you, my Christian faith is very important to me too. I have developed lots of coping mechanisms but they don't include LEGO although when my son was younger I spent many hours building things from LEGO for him. L : )
  7. I believe prayer is the most powerful thing you can do.
  8. i feel we are severely held back by the education system. My memories of school are of excruciating boredom and frustration that so many pupils in my class were stupid. I wanted to work much quicker than the majority of the class and got restless and lost interest when I wasn't allowed to. I agree, Merry, that we are capable of so much if given the opportunities.
  9. I count over and over again on my fingers; I crack a bone in the top of my foot whenever I'm sitting down (drives my husband mad); I flap my hands but less than when I was a child; I also do the talking like a station announcer and listing all the stations - I really thought I was the only one to do this.
  10. This happens to me too. Supermarkets affect me in this way and I have been known to abandon my shopping trolley full of shopping in my rush to get out.
  11. It's great to find a fellow fan, Darkshine. I will start a topic in 2013.
  12. This is the first time I have posted a topic as it's taken me a while to gain enough confidence to do so. I wasn't able to pass on my Christmas wishes as I wasn't at work and don't have a computer at home so I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2013.
  13. I could enlighten everyone as Le Tour is my passion. However, most people seem to find the topic incredibly boring so I only talk about it in July.
  14. Bradley Wiggins winning the Tour de France - one of the highlights of my life!!!
  15. I have also always felt like the odd one out. It used to bother me, especially as I could never really hide as I'm 5 feet 10 and, therefore, as a woman, very noticeable. Now I really don't care. Who wants to be a sheep?
