Getting to know me

Hi Everyone,

I am new here and thought I would complete the questionaire thingy to start off with.
I am a 34yr old divorced mother of 3 who lives on the East Coast of Australia.

1.Do you do anything creative like art,poetry,singing,writing or playing music,dancing or other?

I play the piano and have tried teaching myself the guitar. I also love playing around in paintshop.

2.Were you been abused as a child or teen?

Yes from my earliest memory I was approx 2 when it started and 8 when it ended. It was a teenage cousin.

3.Do you collect dolls or toys?

I used too. But now I have a daughter of my own so I buy her the things that I like.

4.At what age did you start dating?

I was about 14 I guess. They were just the school boys that you go out with.

5.Do you have any physical conditions? Like migraines,ibs,arthritis,fybromialga etc,,?

Oh yeah, migranes, obesity, bad knees, dermatitis, allergies.

6.Do you suffer from depression?

Yes have suffered it for years but wasnt diagnosed until my first child was 11months and that was classed as post-natal.

7.Do you suffer from anxiety?

Yes, suffered that for years too but not diagnosed until almost 4 years ago.

8.Do you suffer from PTSD or other?

I had slight OCD but with help I was able to overcome my obsession.

9.Are you shy?

Yes, but tend to put on a very brave mask and make people think that I am confident and assertive.

10.Are you on any anti-depressants or anti anxiety medication or any other psychotroptic meds for psychiatric reasons?

Yes I was taking a high dose of Aurorix and valium but have recently been changes to Efexor-XR and I take Temaze to help me sleep

11.Do you have a hopeful future outlook?

It depends on the day. Some days all I want to do is to be taken away from this god-forsaken earth and then there are days I want to live forever.

12.Do you take life one day at a time or plan ahead for the future?

I usually take life one day at a time. I cannot handle planning anything ahead because when I was a kid the planned things never happened.

13.Do you trust easily or is it very hard for you to trust?

I find it hard to trust people, and when I do think I can trust someone it always turns to crap. This has happened again recently and at the moment my fingers are sore from little blisters because i get an attack of nerves.

14.Do you like art? If so what are your favorite kinds?

I do like art, but only some. I am not into Van Gogh or anyone like that. I just see something and if I like it I like it. I do like Thomas Kinkade work. And I am a fan of some tattoo's also. Some of them are art to me.

15.What kind of music do you listen to usually?

I listen to all sorts. Anything from Frank Sinatra to stuff that is on the top 40.

16.Name 3 favorite movies.

Oh there are so many to choose from number one would have to be Labyrinth. I have the collectors edition on DVD. Grease would have to be another and good ole Sleepless in Seattle.

17.Why did you join this community?

I joined because when I read some of the posts while searching communities the things I was reading I could relate too. I tend to keep alot of stuff to myself and thought this would be a great way to mingle with others who I know have thoughts like I do.
