    Doesn't sound too bad Paula, I left school in 1962 so my school reunion (never been to one if there even was one) would just be a group of old men going on about how kids these days have never had it so good.

    I was going to organize one, but so many people had changed their names and moved away, that it was nearly impossible. I left in 86 so I've passed the 30 year mark now.

    Morning Paula love. How are you?.....on the subject of reunions. My school in Ireland has had reunions in the past. I never went because I was living over here...I left in 1969. The school is beyond recognition now. Sadly at least 3 of my classmates are deceased. One threw herself under a tube in London....one died of drug addiction, and Richard - whose brother Simon is drummer in the Boomtown Rats -died of cancer aged 35! so half of them are dead!! But I did meet up with my ex BFF! Enough of that...back to you Paula...hope you have a good day!x

    Its hard to put this into words without sounding off ..... When I was at school I was really confident, was the girl who always had a boyfriend and got the best exam results in my year. There was never any doubt I was going to do well. Except my mind and body had other ideas and Im now unable to work, struggle with social activities, in a wheelchair and very overweight. Id rather leave my classmates with the memory of who I might have been than who I am itms

    Anyway, today went ok, I managed to get through it. Im exhausted but I knew that would happen. Rest day tomorrow

    I totally get that Paula. I didn’t want to attend the school reunion we had a few years ago. I wasn’t willing to be probed about what I’d done with my life when everything was so negative. I mean being a seriously overweight unemployed unmarried mother who lost her kids and has mental health problems isn’t exactly something you wanna brag about to people who didn’t like you 25 yrs ago. I had the taken out of me enough back then and I sure as hell wasnt gonna voluntarily put myself in a position to be ridiculed all over again.
