    OT are you allergic anything?

    I was never allergic to anything as a child, besides Pampers nappies (diapers)! But in the last three years I've become allergic to blueberries and bananas, and just this year pollen. I'm also being tested for coeliac disease, which I am praying I don't have after 18 years of gluten-gorging...

    I know this is a relatively old thread, but felt I needed to post. I don't think you really need to worry about boys just yet, if one comes along and you like him, go for it, but don't just go searching for one. For me, I've had a boyfriend for three years now, and he's been hugely supportive...
