Its ok @Sophia1 im a very sensitive person too and have both misunderstood things and understood things to well as well. I guess its part of normal like in a way though and its harder to interpret things online compared to offline where we can recognise tone, expressions etc.

I can tell by your determinationation and knowledge that you have been a person who asks many questions or seeks clarification if you need to. I am actually one of those shyer people who hide away hoping other people can read my mind and ask the questions for me, except for here... so I thank you and those who are brave enough to ask questions.
Part of that I believe is also that im always put down esp when I talk so ive learnt to shut my mouth sort of thing or been to scared to ask questions. Im getting better at it though more so at health appointments because im on my own and I know what I say is confidential (within those limits of course)

I had joined a young persons group previously but it was cancelled due to not enough numbers. It might sound strange but even though I want to be around people my own age I find it so awkward and uncomfortable that it is hard to be around young people (or people in general) I think mostly because of my upbringing and it not being quite as normal as what others may have had it so its hard to relate at all.

Ah yes ive finished 2 blankets now, my rainbow one and another one my my aunt for her grandson. They both worked out quite well. The rainbow one is on the craft thread, perhaps a little while back now but can uplaod another pic if your interested. I can share the other one though as its been all over social media and seen by to many people etc.
I havent done much art lately but ive found mums good camera so I can start doing abit of photography. I do that more at horse events and the likes, it gives me something to do as well.

Enough about me though, How are you holding up the past few days?
