Good afternoon everyone and happy new year from Bonnie Scotland!  Iím thirty, live in Glasgow and married to a man who has Jackís open heart and Ennisí protective nature. 

We saw our film in February 2007.  Every day I kick myself for not seeing it on the big screen!  Having read what feels like every forum, article and fiction on the internet to date, I was hungry for more and decided to join this community.

I have read the effect that it has had on everyone and Iím still trying to make sense of the effect that it has on me.  Every time I think of it, I feel a lump in my throat.  I have taken a long hard look at my life, and all seems well.  I have asked the hard questions, yet my answers suffice.  I still feel like I have been punched in the stomach and I guess the real issue is that I canít identify the message that the film has for me. 
So, here I am.  Iíve pulled up a chair and am waiting on my cherry cake! 

Sandy

Welcome Sandy!  I hope you have a wonderful time exploring the forums here.  :)  It's so great that you've found your way to BetterMost!  It definitely sounds like you've been struck with Brokie fever... with all the classic symptoms.

Happy New Year!
 :D

Well, I'm 23. And I'm probably one of the few who identifies as lesbian here. To keep things short, thanks to BBM (Ennis in particular and Jack too) showing me what could or would happen if I didn't follow my heart. I'm basically fixing what I can in my own life and moving on from things I can't fix. And I've finally had the courage to be my true self after so long of being scared.

I would put more details, except most of it is in my blog. Which I think I put on my profile (not trying to advertise.....honest  ;D) And well, some people will know me here from IMDB. And like some I migrated here to avoid trolls and troglodytes on the BBM board on IMDB. I should have joined a long time ago, no clue why I didn't. Oh wait, yeah I do. I was studying.

And Happy new year!!.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

If all is not lost, then where is it?

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Hey Katness!

Welcome to BetterMost!  And, thanks so much for introducing yourself here.  We have the cherry cake and coffee all set to go for you!  ;D

It just so happens that I'm a lesbian too.  As you'll see there are a lot of women here in general, and the women of this community are all very active participants here on BetterMost. There are definitely other lesbians and bisexual women here among them, so you're most definitely not alone. 

I'm a co-moderator in the Social Forum Events area of BetterMost (I work with my lovely Sister-Mod named Front-Ranger over there).  Over in that forum we do things like organize chats here at BetterMost, organize big/elaborate trips and help folks coordinate smaller get-togethers.  There are also tons of photos posted in that forum so you can see a lot of our smiling faces.  Since there's so much specific info posted in Social Events... that's one of our few "members-only" forums. 

In case you're interested, we have a chat scheduled for noon (Eastern time) this upcoming Saturday. This upcoming chat is a standing, monthly chat that we call "Smarten Up-Second Saturday"... it happens every second Saturday of each month (and of course it's named after Alma's line in the movie).  You'd be more than welcome to drop by.

I'm a refugee from imdb too.  I made my move over to BetterMost in April of 2006.  And, like you it was due to a huge problem with trolls taking place at the time over there.  Once I came here, I really never looked back.

Anyway!  Welcome again!  :D
