Well, I went from living with my mother to living with my husband and have never lived alone, but I can tell you the one thing I really miss about being young and living at home with my mother. It's when I get sick, nobody really takes care of me now, the way my mother and grandmother used to. I kn...

I just Google'd what a Betta fish is, and wow, so beautiful! :)

I don't usually notice I am stimming unless someone points it out. Off the top of my head though: - Picking at the skin on my lips, biting my lips (I get super sore lips because of these) - Picking at the skin around my nails (Again it often gets very sore) - Rocking backwards and forwards - Pacing ...

Occasionally my partner will buy a pack of boxer briefs and they will be too small for him, in which case I use them. I don't really like them though because of that pouch thingy on the front. It makes me look like I have a micro-penis or something and is just pointless extra fabric that freaks me o...

The joy of alcohol. :D

Though I would urge caution with it nonetheless.

Wow, horses too! Awesome. I used to go pony riding when I was about 6 but then my stables closed down after about a year and my parents decided it was too expensive to continue at a different stables.

What breed are your dogs?

I'm not a big film fan because I have a short attention span so I usually struggle to sit through them. I study French so I watch some French films though to help improve my language skills but also cultural knowledge. I actually don't like Amelie at all I must admit. Some of my favourite French fil...

I like most food, although I am vegetarian for welfare/ethical reasons. Other things I dislike so much I won't eat them though include: Bananas. Can't stand the taste, texture, or smell. Yuck. Red kidney beans. Horrible texture. Mayonnaise - smells and tastes awful. Mushy peas, again the texture. Pe...

(Sorry if this is the wrong section, wasn't sure where to put it. But it counts as getting to know someone better??) I have two guinea pigs. I love animals, and I mostly wanted a pet because I know about how much they can benefit people with mental health problems. I suffer from depression and anxie...

Maths has always been my worst subject even since I was little. I struggle with basic mental arithmetic and time, especially in the 24hr clock, and still count on my fingers. I'm pretty sure I have dyscalculia but there isn't anyone connected to my uni who is qualified to diagnose it. I hate math. I...

My sixth-form had a mentor, and I saw her for an hour a week just to chat and I told her all my difficulties and we would talk about strategies to deal with them. This was also useful for me from the perspective that I also had anxiety and depression to contend with, and at that point was undiagnose...

Why can't you ask them to repeat what they've said? I take French classes at uni and we are always allowed to ask someone/the teacher to repeat themselves or ask them to please speak slower or whatever to enable us to understand. Sometimes things need repeating a couple of times, or said in a differ...

No idea, I don't think there is any simple answer to this. Sometimes I manage to force myself to do things, and push through the feelings of 'ugh this is just tiring/boring/draining/makes me anxious' and eventually I start to enjoy the activity e.g. some social activities, maybe playing a board game...

Just let her know that you are there for her and that she can talk to you about it if she likes. Also, checking up on her could be useful, not like every hour or anything silly like that but just asking her how she is once a day or whatever probably like you normally would I guess! Asking her to do ...
