Thanks to you all on TS

I firstly want to say thank-you to you guys on TheSite, Since I have become a member on here I have become such a better person, gained confidence and the ability to talk about problems I may be facing. I love using TheSite, not sure what I will do when I get to 25.

Before I joined TS I didn't have much confidence and thought I was alone in the problems that I was dealing with. Then I came on here and the advice I received from other members and also mods has been amazing. I also use another website but I have to say I prefer TS, because in main chat everyone offers support to each other and its a nice atmosphere to be in, and everyone is so nice to each other, and also on the boards. :)

I am also now on the leaders network. So far this has been an amazing experience for me. I sometimes struggle to keep up with the chat and get a bit confused with the aims of the chat, but I am overcoming that slowly. I am also thinking of going to the next Leaders weekender:) So that should be a great experience for me.

Because my learning disability means I am a bit slower, to register things in my brain I find it hard to keep up with certain things however I never let having a learning disability hold me back, I just overcome things and learn new ways of doing things. I have kind of done that in the leaders chats, with saying my ideas and things. I have ideas but sometimes find it hard to word them.. But I am getting better.

Okay so I am gonna wrap this up now.. Sorry for the really random post :)

    There's no reason you can't stay once you turn 25, you know. You just won't be able to participate in surveys or user panels.

    Just like me, because I'm old (well 27).

    The thing is, the people who are outside of the age range can still have a very valid and useful contribution to advice giving and other things. :)
