    Hi Debbie I agree it’s brilliant don’t feel so isolated. I am a friendly person and find it hard to meet genuine people Some people have let me down . I’ve been told I’m to trusting I suppose I am but learning as I get older

    Hi Leggy.  This forum has made me aware that there are so many people in similar situations and this helps to me make us feel less alone.  Trust is a major policy of mine and I understand how it feels to be betrayed etc.  Genuine people are out there and we must take the risk to get to know people and then find out their worth!  At the moment though, I am not allowing anyone new into my life! After saying this, here I am sharing stuff but it feels safe on this forum.  Try not to allow the people who have let you down to change you from a trusting person, just have your guard up a little for self-protection!

    It somehow lessens the load to share our troubles! It gives a great sense of satisfaction to help others :)
