I joined MN because I have been through the meat grinder of a mental breakdown and simply want to help people who are going through a bad time.

I chose my forum name because it was my nickname at primary school... (perhaps the oddity was showing even then).

For a bit of lighthearted humour..Can I ask why do you call yourself the names you choose? Some names really crack me up with laughter!

My name kind of translates to Oh shit, seems to suit my life.

I never got to trying out that one on my French teacher ... because I didn't learn the vocab until after I left school....

Life is sooo not fair!

Mine is aspirational!

I've had a very anxious 2015. I want to be solid, together, on-top of things. I want to work (and be good at my job), and have kids, and muck around with questionable hobbies at the weekend (nothing dodgy! Just juvenile!). But I've found myself barely coping, stuck in an introspective nightmare, panicking about all I haven't done and can't fit in.

I've been getting there. I'm feeling good now! But I've got 3 sets of books to mark before Monday, so it could all go wrong again...!

I have had a string of much more fun music related nicknames but no-one ever gets the reference.

I think I might be the fidgetiest, most restless person in the world

Mine is from my favourite quote- Nit all those who wander are lost- part of a poem from Lord of the Rings. Has summed up big parts of my life
