Melodee & Aries,
Thankyou soooo much!
You have no idea how reassuring your words were to me. Yes Melodee I did do some modelling when I was younger, but now- my issue is my weight. Im a pretty big girl these days and nothing I do seems to change that and its made me even more insecure. Even when I did model I was very insecure. I thought they only wanted me for my height (im 6ft).
I do need to broaden my horizons and look further afield, but Im so exhausted all the time... every where I go, I go with my friends who are mostly couples, some with children and I envy their security. I know I dont need a man to validate me- but Id like someone to share my life with. Guys stopped asking me out when I started gaining weight. Sadly thats how society seems to operate.
Thankyou again for your wonderful, kind & sincere words- they mean alot right now.
Whoa there girlfriend. You are a lovely, talented, bright and witty young woman who is dealing with many chronic illnesses. You are very deserving of love and a relationship and just let it happen as it will one day.
I have been sick longer than you have even been alive. I will tell you never to give up. I have been blessed to be married twice in my life. My first husband honestly could not handle being married to a sick person. I thought at that point in my life that who would ever want me.
But I have since been blessed with the most amazing husband in the world. He has seen me at my all time worst, and not once ever thought about leaving. There is a man out there somewhere that will be just right for you. You just have to be patient. I will tell you that you are still young, and you should never give up hope. I happen to know that you are a woman of faith. Lay your fears at God's feet and he will provide all your needs. That is what I did, and he brought my husband into my life.
Kitt and Gail- thankyou for putting things in perspective for me. I have to try and be more positive and also step out in faith and believe there is a plan for my life- even though i dont see it yet. (one for you each)
Ben- hang in there my friend. I am sure you will find someone, and thanks for being so understanding. ( )
I will do my best to stay positive and not give in to negative thoughts or expectations that society lays on me.
All my love,
