Hi Everyone, New Noobie Come To Say Hello!


Recommended Posts

Wow - I've been reading some of the threads on here, and I can't tell you how assuring it is to know that I'm not on my own! Some people actually know how I am feeling.

Made me feel all fuzzy inside...no wait...I need a wee. :blush:

I am just another insignificant dot mixed in an infinite amount of other insignificant dots. Hence, just like all you other dots, would greatly relish in the comfort on making my mark on the world ‘negligible’ as opposed to ‘nil’. Lets, as you will, imagine that I (a happy clappy "all is well" 19 year old, all too jolly to thrive and discuss new found revelations and inner beliefs all rather too closely in comparison with the likes of molten biscuits in plastic slips instead of boxes), began to thrive on a greater, more challenging passion. One that would require copious amounts of enthusiasm spattered with equal amount of alcoholic usage. I fully intend to exploit this passion at an insitution of higher education. Subsequently, I will enjoy engaging in turvey pitting and owning a inquisitive parrot named Mephigroo.

Or alternatively - I'm a student, I own an impressive parrot of whoms favourite word I cannot mention for sensorship reasons. I find drinking tea with my scary but passionate roomates, deliberating the chocolate bourbon over the less favourable rich tea whilst Inuit throat singing - is my definition of a perfect night in. And I have absolutely no idea what 'turvey pitting' is.

(The bourbon inevitably wins, but in all my vacuous indecision - I eat both instead). :wink:

Bourbons aside, I am of course here for a reason. Like many of you beautiful people on here, I have my own ghosts to face. I am a surviver of child sexual abuse, of which, until now - has been my secret.

I really hope I finally get to share my story, and unburden myself with this excruciating secret that has effected my life. I can't wait to finally speak with people who really know how it feels to be abused, I don't want it to be a taboo anymore!

p.s. As a side note. I am a grade A insomniac - you will forever find me posting at daft o'clock, so please bare with me, or even join me! :)

Wow! You seem like such an interesting person! Thank you for sharing your thoughts as I find your insight amusing to read as well as helpful. You give an uplift to this solemn issue that brings us all together in this forum. And I too am insomniac....well mre so on and off. Some nights I find the darkness brings flashbacks and grim thoughts to my uneasy mind and although he tries with such a loving and passonate heart, my husband does not alwas have the strength to keep his eyes open all night with me and other times I cannot find the words or strength to let him see how badly I have been affected internally. At times you may find me a companion on late nights, finding the light to scare the dark thoughts away from my mind. Looking forward to talking and sharing more with you and I hope you as well as myself can find the strength to break the silence and share our experiences as a way to finally heal ourselves.

Lovely to meet you all :wave:

Apologies for not replying sooner, my computer had a fortuitous brain fart - he's on his last legs bless 'im!

@jane_doe Thank you kindly :blush:

@glassprincess - Absolute gem! Thank you. I agree wholeheartedly ole bean - No-one can quite quell my impressively bad sense of humour, it was developed by watching too much Mr Bean and not enough Sleeping Beauty as a wee yin I believe...

I sincerely wish you all the best my power trooper. Lovely to meet you. You know where I am when in need of some lightwinded witty banter :flowers:

@nursemandi - Thank you lovie x

@lynn - Hey Lynn! Thanks for the warm welcome, muchly grateful :flowers:

@kaylinmarie - Thank you my fellow noob! I welcome you with a squeeze and a narna :dance:

I agree, I can see this site becoming my grounds for all things nice and all things bumpy - and all things irrelavant really...including my current woes of the scary landlord over-yonder who, for no reason apparant to myself, keeps stealing my food and pushing blank post-it notes through my open window. He's a special character who likes breaking into my apartment at daft o'clock in the morning, screaming impressive profanities about Justin Beibers haircut whilst wearing his jazzy oven-mitts imported from Peru - was a tad intimidating, especially when I realised he had better oven mitts than me.

I'm sorry, I'm rambling again. I'm so guileless its frightening!

Lovely to meet you :flowers:
