Dear Dad,

AdvantagesYou get to share a sad moment of my life

DisadvantagesIts a bit longer than my usual reviews and sad.

"...miles away, I have abandoned everything and come straight here to be with my Dad. I had nowhere to stay but I didn't care. The hospital let me stay in a relatives room for the 4 nights I was there. Then I saw you...god that was so hard..full of tubes and surrounded by machines that bleeped and flashed. I cried and I cried for ages. My Dad, looking asleep, but not asleep. Unaware of what was going on around you. I was scared to hold your hand, scared ..." Read review

I now only have one more Room to look in, that is the Bathroom, which is also located on the same floor, just a few yards away, so I casually walk to the door and knock it, and call out.......

My life with dyspraxia

AdvantagesI guess I have something to blame if I dont do something so well

DisadvantagesIt made me embarrassed growing up, I struggled with basic things, its not much fun

"...time. Again, as with most everything else, given some extra time and encountering enough doors and so on (lol), I started to get better and I wouldn't mix up the difference but I did find it confusing at first. Another basic thing I mixed up was left and right. Another memory I have was of one time when we all had to line up in a big, long circle in the schools gym, the headmaster came in and would say either left or right to each pupil in line ..."

My Dream Baby Review with images

AdvantagesSometimes you can overcome the odds

DisadvantagesThere are some truely awful people in the world

"...heard him cry out! After everything that had happened, the waiting, the tears, he was finally here! He was brought round the screen so that we could see him. A feeling of complete and utter love engulfed me as two piercing little blue eyes studied me. Our baby. Our beautiful, perfect, gorgeous little baby. He was whisked away to the baby unit, but returned the next day. Although he was born at 34 weeks, he weighed over eight pounds! ..." Read review

The depths and despair of my pain

AdvantagesI've opened my heart - so please just read

DisadvantagesRather long

"...I came pretty close. Everything seemed to be going well until I started to feel unwell in mid September. I came to the conclusion that I could possibly have problems with my thyroid as it runs in the family, so I made an appointment with the doctor. The doctor examined me, and I remember feeling as if I were going to faint when he told me I was pregnant. I should have felt joyous at such news, but instead I was in shock. It felt so surreal, as ..." Read review

Dempsey Devil vs. Naughty Nati Review with images

Advantagesmen have thier say

Disadvantagesno doubt becuase a man has had his say

"Dempsey Devil vs. Naughty Nati: the 20 most irritating things about women This is sort of a stand off challenge between me and another Ciao member. NATI has no doubt written the complete opposite of me, with her version of men. And to fully appreciate this review, you should also take a look at hers with the same title. We would both like to say however, that we are both good friends, and this is only intended as a bit of fun, and not ..." Read review

Black dogs.

AdvantagesDrugs and finding out how many people actually care

DisadvantagesToo many to list

"I've no idea why I have started to write this other than it being a Friday night and I'm not quite tired enough for bed. I guess I hope that in writing this I might help someone out there.... I have a disease, it is chronic and whilst not a given it is often terminal. It has changed who I am perceptively. Whilst it can be managed well it will always lurk and threaten to bring the skies crashing down. It isn't trendy, in fact it bears a huge ..." Read review

R.I.P. JONNY KENNEDY - THE BOY WHOSE SKIN FELL OFF Review with images

AdvantagesOpens our eyes to other people's suffering

DisadvantagesSeeing suffering by others

"...and he tried to do everything he could to raise funds and awareness of this terrible disease. Sadly, it was the very last thing he did. Jonny firmly believed that DebRA would one day find a cure for EB but he also knew that it wouldn’t be soon enough to save him. Then we see Jonny with a carer on the train travelling back North and he is very, very ill and sadly died. The final scenes show his funeral which was sad but also a celebration ..." Read review

Death of my Mother

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesYou lose part of yourself

"...there for me she was everything a person could ask for in a Mother. We had our differences as I said before when I was younger but luckily I buried my skeletons years ago and I am sure she buried hers. What she done to me when I was a child has been forgotten and now I have lost her I realise I have not just lost a Mother but a confidante, mate, and one of the very few people in my life I can truly trust to be always there for me, come what may. ..."

Day in the life of....A cat!!! Review with images

Advantagesummm....it's got Dave and Clive in it!

DisadvantagesSome of you may think i'm mad!!

"...Oh no, we've lost it. Everything goes missing under there. Ah well i can't be bothered any more anyway. It's starting to get cold and it's dark. We both decide to go upstairs. I say goodnight to clive, and jump onto my blanket on top of the wardrobe. As i pad away at the blanket, i watch Clive curl up against mummy. He does look sweet and i do love my little brother. I settle down and as my eyes close, i think about where i can hide from Clive tomorrow.....mmmm ..." Read review

SCOTCH MYTH

AdvantagesEducational

DisadvantagesNo beer make proxam crazy

"After a recent review of mine about a Scottish beer called Ossian Ale, I was virtually swamped with requests for more information about Scottish beer. When I say swamped, I mean Tange and SueMagee asked. Being the spineless, weak-willed, lily-livered hero that I am, there's no way I'm risking a savaging from the beer monster herself, and as for getting on the wrong side of Sue, well let's just say that she used to be a tax inspector, it doesn't get ..."

Don't ever forget it's just a website!!!!

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesnone

""The Internet provides the perfect forum for cyberbullies, individuals whose aim is to gain gratification from the distress caused by provoking and tormenting others. The anonymity, ease of provocation, and almost infinite source of targets means the Internet is full of predators from paedophiles targeting children to serial bullies targeting ... anybody. Cyberbullies get a perverse sense of satisfaction (called gratification) from sending people ..." Read review

A day in the life...

AdvantagesYour children probably won't ever be taught by me.

DisadvantagesNone, unless you count being peed on.

"I'll give you a disclaimer to begin with (well, that is, I think, the way all the best reviews should begin, with the author more or less abdicating all responsibility). This isn't actually a review of a whole day in my life. Reading about what I get away with passing off as teaching on the average Friday would cause those of you with children to start seriously considering the benefits of a public education. Fret not, though, most teachers aren't ..." Read review

Dreams of a "one Wild night" come true Review with images

AdvantagesThe dream itself

Disadvantagesnone if you keep it alive

" There was a time when I truly loathed writing. Invariably it would turn out the best piece in the class and having to read it out loud was nothing but sheer humiliation. Although my writing used to flow and I didn’t mind the praise before I was ten, after that it became a burden. It culminated at a History class, at a time when all the class did terribly at a specific exam, and we had to endure a long speech from the tutor. I wasn’t feeling too ..." Read review

Pages of my DIARIES... Review with images

AdvantagesYou get to be nosy and read personal stuff!

DisadvantagesYou get to read personal stuff!

"...for the one who with everything seems clear and I'm still here. ♦ Saturday 2nd April 2005 I've got so much stuff going on in my head that I want to write down every single thought in my head but there's not enough books in the world. And on a last note, If I have to listen to Steve my mom's boyfriend babble on about pointless s*it once more i might kill myself or him for that matter. ♦ Things I need to do A.S.A.P (17 April 2005) 1) ..."
