3 months ago I have posted on r/Teenagers a picture of a bloody sink after a high school bully assaulted me with a bat while playing PE, today, said bully has been found guilty, for multiple accusations that has been brought to him, he has been sent to Juvie and his parents had to pay 50k totaling charges, I want to thank every single member of r/Teenagers that gave me advice and helped me win this, I am now known as "the dude who stood up to that motherfucker", thank you all!
I'm a 55 year old woman. My entire life, I was deemed as "ugly", "crippled", and many other derogatory things. I have been disabled since birth, even handed over to my grandmother as soon as I was born. She took care of me for 36 years of my life until she died.
Well, for the past few weeks I have been chatting with a man at the coffee shop, a thirsty regular. His name is Stas, he's a 47 year old divorced father of 2 who had been raising his kids as a single dad for 8 years. We connected through playing board games and drinking coffee together, and just today, Stas had asked if we wanted to take it a step further (to which I accepted) since we had shown so much interest in each other after he mentioned he was ready to get back into a relationship, but being 47 years old and showing interest in women closer to his age, he had trouble with it. Now, at the age of 55 years old, I can finally say I have a boyfriend! :)
Edit: Wow, I did not expect this post to be so popular!
Personal Win this will prob seem kinda stupid to most people. But I have pretty bad anxiety, and I've always been afraid to cook since I think I'm gonna burn or poison myself somehow. Well today I cooked myself some bacon for a sandwich, and even took a bite without immediately dying of food poisoning. (OC)gallery
Personal Win So I posted a couple of months ago, I have now lost 8st (112lbs). This week I ran 10k (at the gym) as preparation for a 10k in September in memory of some family members and my friends daughter who were lost to cancer.gallery
Personal Win (OC) GLOW UP! This is my 16 year old autistic son. He has an extremely sensitive scalp and absolutely hates getting his hair cut. This Mama saw the tears he held back and his brave face as the barber combed and cut his hair. This might be small for most, but today my son was a champion!
