Not married my first husband. My life has gone wrong from that point onwards I believe.

It's probably quicker to name what I wouldn't change! That's the kids, everything else would be different

Not taken my DS to Dr's re suspected allergy - subsequent referral to specialist ruined his chances of getting in the military. I feel so guilty.

Probably nothing. Even things I bitterly regretted at the time have taught me a lot and I can't now at some distance untangle them from the person I've become.

I wouldn't have spent so much money when I actually had it. I'm skint now and could cry at how much I lived for the moment.

Left my last job 4 years earlier.

DioneTheDiabolist Mon 04-Mar-19 00:38:51

Told my friend what I expected. Or maybe told her Exh that I knew.sad

DioneTheDiabolist Mon 04-Mar-19 00:39:36

Should be suspected, not expected.

Hedgehogblues Mon 04-Mar-19 01:05:42

Gone NC as soon as I left home

Stayed fit so i didnt get a chronic illness.

Trouble is everything I’d change would ultimately lead to one of my dc effectively winking out of existence as in never happening
. That’s not an acceptable outcome in exchange for ‘fixing’ whatever questionable choices I made. So I would change nothing.

Put more effort into getting a good job after I graduated from university.

Snoopypoopy123 Mon 04-Mar-19 03:10:27

Not commit murder.

Dreamzcancometrue Mon 04-Mar-19 03:33:12

Not drink so much it ended up in my arrest
Not listen to the voices in my head
Not sleep with certain people
Not loan my ex money which he hasnt paid back
The list goes on...

When I had a cesarean, I would never of had my tubes tied while they were in there.

I often wish I could have had Chaz's baby. sad

Plucked up the courage to speak to David Cameron when I saw him at an event and had a deep and meaningful conversation with him about what ‘leave’ might actually mean
