    Default The year that changed your life...

    Tell me about it....
    Eg:
    Were you 16 and met your DH?
    Were you 30 and lost someone special?
    Were You 25 and had your first bub?

    Did you conquer a fear, lose weight, reach that goal? Tell me about the year that changed you.... for better or for worse...

    My life will never be the same without him, he was the only person who could read me, he just knew when something was wrong.


    2010 ds was born, the first day of my life I think lol I dont know what I did before he came along
    That must have been horrible, losing your best friend.... I cannot imagine the pain you felt

    As for the birth of your DS, I think that it goes without saying... the arrival of our children is irreplaceable.

    18 was the greatest year of my life! Met DF, moved in together, got engaged and DS was conceived

    But in saying that, 2005 (age 12) changed me forever when I lost my Dad to suicide. I should have, but I still haven't dealt with it properly.

    So sorry, I too have felt the debris (as I like to call it) of suicide. It will never leave me....

    There's a few that have had positive and negative big changes.

    1995 aged 6 my dad passed away, as you'd expect it changed everything.

    2001 aged 12 we left the place we called home and it brought a whole new sense of family

    2005 aged 16 the year I met dh and learnt what 'real' love is

    2010 aged 21 I had a hip reconstructed for the first time in years I was pain free with a new outlook on life

    There's more but that'll do
