So I'd like to say a massive collective thank you to the SF family here. You guys have been so amazingly welcoming to me. I've never felt more at home anywhere in my life! Which is saying something because I've been going to the football for 20yrs and have been in the main supporter's group for almost a decade now, while our homeground itself is the physical structure that feels most like home to me, being in the supporters group doesnt. I'm on the outer even though I've been there so long. It's divided up into little clique's and I dont belong to any of them. Even though I'm one of the most die hard supporters, I'm not really accepted. But here its different. I've only been here just on a week but I'm not treated like a newbie. I'm nervous about joining in on conversations sometimes, but I'm getting more into it. I've been on other forum sites and been burned, entering into convo's and getting replies like 'what would you know you're only new!" which really made me not want to return. But I've had none of that here.
I was so very nervous about posting pics on here too, but I decided to take a huge personal step and do it. And the responses blew me away! I can count on two fingers how many people told me I was beautiful/good looking/attractive before I came here. Almost all my life I've been told I'm fat,ugly, you name it, if its negative I've been called it. A friend set me up on a blind date once, the guy turned up and said "Is THAT what you've set me up with? I'd rather fuck a pile of steaming hot dog shit" which is one of the more hurtful things I've had said to me. SO to come here and have such positive feedback has been uplifting.
And now I'd like to highlight afew people who have done something that sticks out in my mind as needing that extra bit of thanks.
Redgreen - my cyber stalker Your comments on my pics blew me away! And your posts on my blogs convince me to continue blogging. You've cheered this lil ozziegal up no end, thank you so much

And last but certainly by no means least
Attalim - Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! Thanks for getting me to join here, its changed me in alot of ways, all for the better. Your comments on my blogs make me think maybe I'm not so boring, so I keep blogging You know how much our friendship means to me and I wouldnt change it for the world! for getting me here and for your friendship I always have a blast when we chat
So in summary. Thank you all for accepting me, for letting me be myself for the first time in my life. I'm not afraid to talk about things, express myself like I always have and its such a relief to be able to say stuff without fear of condemnation. I know I'll be here for a very long time and look forward to making more and more friends as my time goes on here.
