Hiya Kirsty and welcome!!

Don't worry about spelling, no-one cares about that here.

It's great to hear that you are at uni and somehow managing to get thorugh your courses. A great encouragement to many I'm sure.

There are loads of wonderful people here on this site for support and advice and a great chat room too. It's sometimes empty but often if you go in and hang around a bit someone comes along to join you. The busiest times are in the evenings UK time and the early mornings.

I hope you enjoy being here with us,
Katharine

Dear Kirsty,
You look very pretty and definitely do not have a chubby face, sorry to hear about the depression. It can be a real slog when you feel down.

Looking forward to hearing more about you.
Don't worry about spelling, sometimes my fingers are no good and I write drivel!!

Hi Kirsty,

Welcome.

You must have some willpower not to eat chocolate for 3 months. I tried it at the end of my first pregnancy and just about went crazy. I hope you make it to the end.

Take care,
Lazylegs
