    2004 - I decided to take control of my life.

    I'd been separated from by then DH for a year. I decided I would be the 'bad guy' and tell him it was over. It was the hardest thing I have ever EVER done in my life and I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy. It was, however, the most liberating thing I had ever done.

    I decided that I needed to take control of my weight - I didn't want to be borderline morbidly obese anymore. I joined a gym and lost 4 sizes. I also started PT which turned my into a person who actually enjoys physical exercise. I had tears in my eyes the day I went to buy a nice jacket and I bought a medium, I was 'normal'. I had to replace every single item of clothing with the exception of socks.

    I didn't like my job, from day one of that job I hadn't liked it. I was way over qualified for the role and bored to tears. I got a knew job, with about a 50% pay rise and a lot more satisfaction.

    Finally, I decided to dip my toe in the dating game again so I joined up for internet dating. Low and behold, the first guy I went on a date with absolutely swept me off my feet and I fell head over heels in love with him. Exactly 3 years later from our first date we took our first child home from hospital. Nearly 9 years later we've never had a fight - we've never raised our voices at each other. During those first few months of falling in love I used to want to skip down the street and swing around the lamp posts like Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain.

    2004 - 'twas a good year.

    Mine was a couple of years.

    Shortly after turning 18 I met a guy who I fell madly in love with. He was bad, bad news. Over the next year I lost almost all of my friends, I was at odds with my family because they were looking out for me but I believed him when he told me they didn't want me to be happy and just wanted to break us up. He cheated on me constantly. I believed everyone of his lies. He physically and emotionally abused me. I finally found the courage to leave him... But fell into another short lived, but very abusive relationship. We spent almost a year dragging through court - it was mentally exhausting. I found myself falling back into bad habits with bf #1, and found out he had another gf living in our house (I'd moved out, but kept my name on the lease so he didn't lose the house) - I worked days and she worked nights.

    I moved away from my home town for a fresh start. I was partying, taking way too many drugs and was a shadow of my true self.

    On my 20th birthday I met my DH. Slowly but surely he reassured me, listened and helped me get happy again. He saved me from myself.

    2012 - our beautiful five and a half year old daughter passed away from an asthma attack at home on the night before Mothers' Day. My life will NEVER be the same again, despite people asking me if I'm "getting better?"

    2007 - travelled to Europe with a friend and had a fantastic time, came home and met DH a month later. 8 months later my mum (who I was very close to) died suddenly. Such a shock but DH stepped up and proved what a man he was. Then I knew I had def met my future husband. So a very good and very bad year all rolled into one...

    I was 17/18 and a lot happened. I left an abusive relationship, I met DF, I got pregnant, moved in with DF (which meant I also physically left the abusive relationship with my parents).

    2007, got married to my amazing Dh.
    2008, found out we couldn't have babies naturally.
    2011, sold our house and moved to a cheaper old house further out of town, started renovating it.
    2012, got pregnant through ivf #5, finished the inside of the house and gave birth to an incredible small perfect baby girl. Realised nothing else matters when you have a baby.
