Well I really shouldn't be posting this, I should be trying to keep it quiet, because I suppose reaching 10,000 shows how addicted I am to this place, but oh well never mind
It seems like a good chance for me as well to say some about my time here. As quite a few of you know, I've had a bad time of it in the past, didn't have a lot of confidence at all and this probably sounds silly, but this board has helped me in that respect, I've got to know some fantastic people, who I'm very happy to call friends, of course one or two people have let me down in that regard, but others have stuck by me and helped me.
With the college course I started a few weeks ago, that was probably only as a result of friends that I've made on here, giving me the belief that I could go and do that.
So I suppose really, although I have all these posts and it is probably far too much, all these posts and being on this board has had a positive effect on me.
I'll have to give a special mention in this post to some posters, Liz
, Marri, Mel, Fiona, Raquel, Knop, Saff, Linda, Julien, Lisa, Shirley, Cilla and also Susie (who is too LAZY to check the board now
but I'm sure she's still around
) There are more I'd like to mention, but I'd better not ramble on forever
So 10,000 posts and a huge thanks to everyone for putting up with me
