10 things you may not know about me

  1. My dad is a pom. From Kent. In England. Der. He came to Australia when he was 18 to go to uni and become an architect and buy an e-type jag, met my mother and got me instead. Now he is a draughtsman and lives in Perth.......that makes me half a pom and half a goodness knows what
  2. My mother had me when she was just 17 years old, and 3 of us before she was 20
  3. I had my first child at age 18, just....I did wait 5 years before having another
  4. Its been 5 and a half years since I had a drink or other any bad thing in my body
  5. Sometimes I would really like one but I choose not to go there
  6. I would like to travel this country one day
  7. I eat far too much crap
  8. Lots of the time I feel quite ignorant and inferior but get on with it anyway
  9. I spent most of my life trusting no one and nothing, now I trust because if I don't take a risk then how do I grow?
  10. I like who I am most days

yep.....didnt know dad was a pom but did know how long you have gone without self harming with drink and drugs. Interesting to note that you still feel like doing it occasionally- you come across now as so strong, together and wise that one tends to forget just what a battle you have had and how it must continue to haunt you. dont let us forget ankle- tell us when you are hurting, love you SISoM, mary me x

I will clarify...I have thoughts occasionally, not urges....it is different. Sometimes I would dearly like to go on a 'piss up' with the girls or have a 'cold one' on a hot day but I just can't sort of thing. When I am feeling dark, strangely enough, it doesn't really occur to me as an option.
That sort of thing.
Interesting really, I miss the 'social' aspects of drinking, not the rest.

pissy parties are not the fun they used to be.......I am such a cheap drunk and over the limit in about 2 sips................
loving you x

Can't remember when I had a pissy party last. I'm not sure that I even miss them. It's the company, the social intertwining, the feeling of being a part of a group that I miss. I'm still very emotionally linked to people in Newcastle, so it can be a little isolating at times.
Never really believe that you are less than you are; Alex Lloyd said that YOU are amazing; who are we to disagree?
