    My best years were probably 13-18. They always say your school years are the best :)

    My best years are actually this year, had a crap childhood with divorced parents and a mum that was drink dependent, then my mum died when i was 16.

    Spent years afterwards off my head!!! On my own with no family as nobody cared. Met my kids father and spent 5 years of my life being physically abused by him.

    Lost my dad when i was 26 years old.

    Now i am 32yrs old, i have found the man that is my world, my soulmate, my best friend.

    I have 2 wonderful children and am getting married next year, have adopted a lovely family in my fiance's family, so am not on my own anymore. I have a good job and a wonderful outlook on life which i could never of dreamt i would have.

    xxxx

    These are the best years of my life right now.

    My life started to change when i was 38 when i felt i had to try to be 'normal' and give myself one shot at life. Didn't know if i'd make it but if i was going to die, i wanted to be able to say to myself "at least i tried".

    I still have bad days and i find life difficult sometimes but i'm getting there, finding out who i am and what i want from life, turning new corners and facing fresh challenges all the time (im a perfectionist so this has been hard).

    I've learnt to drive (not that keen Lol), learnt to ski (which i love), i can make a phone call (albeit on my own hidden behind the door) and i can approach a stranger to ask a question..... so many things people take for granted or find so simple

    Im learning...................so hopefully my best years are waiting for me :D

    I would have to say that mine are now. I have 2 gorgeous boys, a lovely hubby and apart from not being able to drive I am very happy!

    But I did love school.

    I think thats a lovely thing to say especially after everything you have gone through x

    You can only go from strength to strengh x


    My best years were my childhood I think, if only we could see into the future back then I would change alot.

    Mine are now, I'm fabulous 50. have finally grown comfortable in my skin. have a wonderful o/h of 7 years, a brilliant son and daughter in law who have given me a beautiful grandson. I have 3 dogs, 8 horses and ponies and fantastic friends. I feel busy and fulfilled and little things like having a few wrinkles are not important any more. I nearly bought it with a brain haemorrage 10 years ago and since then I am very grateful for everything and appreciate the simple things of life. I used to think 50 was over the top but I can assure you its not as said age is just a number:)

    This is a hard one!

    I had a bad child hood, although not as bad as some. I hated school, and was bullied through most of it. My life after I left school wasn't very good either, due to all the wierdo men I seem to attract! I would probably have to say about a year after I met my OH, for the last 5 years. When we first met I was suffering quite bad from depression. He has helped me through that and I love him so much. We have a beautiful little boy now. We have had problems, as everyone does, and we have one stress or another going on, but despite all that I am still happy being with him, and wouldn't change a thing! :)
