How did everyone create their usernames?
Brett11 because someone used Brett and I’m very non creative.
Haha Brett i answered this already 😁😛
Mine is part of my email. Xx
Hi Twosmiles, your replies have disappeared from my previous posts??
Odd...i haven't done anything- which tread please, I’ll have a look 😬
Hi again alfred
If you can say where you think i responded maybe you could ask brett if he/she can see them?
I wonder how “admin” got their name🤷♀️😄
Mine is my name ..... surprise surprise!
9 is my house number. Still trying to work out where 00 came from though😁
I always get confused? Is it oh oh or zero zero? Great! I’m gonna be up all night contemplating that conundrum haha
Apparently if you use numbers it's zero zero. If you're using letters it's OO. Oh Oh means shock or surprise.
Ok here's demo ...
00 .... zero zero
OO ..... two capital letters
oo .... 2 lower case letters
Hope this clears up the confusion for you Brett 😁x
Ummmm.... yeah!!!!! Ummmm...... OK then
I’m a 🍄

Brilliant funny start to my morning!! I have no idea how I chose mine - probably just a random thought. I definitely haven't fallen off any walls. Over them yes, but not off them
Hope everyone is well and I'm so glad I found this forum!!
You asked, and I'd love to share...
As my physical health is being challenged, my mental health soon followed. My body is fighting really hard- something- we just don't know what... This can be maddening to the mind. I can't figure it out, and have been wrong numerous times. This can build up anxiety. When your body is in fight mode, anxiety, unfortunately, increases naturally to fight harder.
Guess what? More anxiety... I found out the hard way, you shouldn't fight anxiety with anxiety.
Or "Fight"+ "fight" = Anxiety
Any way... "All His" is a peaceful surrender into spiritual health. The only health I had left as mental and physical health where fighting with each other.
"All His" comes from a strong faith in God, Our Father. Jesus came to show us the Father. Why? So we can live in eternity with Him forever. And because we are each created for this beautiful life with no end, I have a strong trust in the path He has placed before me today.
The Peace of Christ...
All is well...
I have all I need.
Come from Ayrshire and as I haven't hidden my name is Katie (Kathryn actually). So, AyrshireK it is.
Now, strangely enough Katie, I guessed that 😀
I know, very original.
Yes I'd work that out too. I think of you as clever Kate though
So do I!
Yes perhaps name change to KleverKate?
Ive just changed mine Brett, you've inspired me! 😂 it was stacie33 and rubbish, I'm not even 33 anymore. It is now porphyriamaniac, owing to my medical condition and the fact that I am a maniac. You can still call me Stacie though, or just maniac... xxx
Mrs Porph lol
The artist formerly known as Stacie33 😂 I answer to anything me... I was gonna go with bltsresidenthairyfacedvampirewerewolfhybridweirdothatnobodyunderstands but I thought it was a bit long? Xxx
I'll stick with Stacie.... it's quicker to type and easier to spell x
Very true Laura, I will answer to anything! 😉 xxxx
I like stacey! Porhy is way too hard for me....
I just used my name lol
Not from arizona then?
Lol no. I was born and live in Toronto Canada
Phoenix toronto hmm not quite the same ring about it 😀
But my name is Phoenix Palazzo and I think it has a better ring to it lol
I want to change mine to my real name but I don’t know how 😫
Me too. Hope someone can tell us how. 😕
Just changed mine to grandma dylan. Just go on your profile then select settings....easy
Yay! I’ve done it now, thanks GrandmaDylan 😊
Mine is the name of our Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who we lost 3 weeks ago today. Sorry to be depressing!
Oh that's so sad 😢
It's amazing how hard it is 😢.
I'm sorry for your loss. Xxx
Thank you xxx.
Kyia is a beautiful name
She came to us at the age of two with her name and we never really found out the meaning 🙂.
EXTREMES in fortune, health and spirituality. You are very versatile, idealistic and intuitive. You either enjoy great success or suffer abject misery. The solution is service to others. Use your leadership abilities for humanity and not for self-glorification.You are inventive, intuitive and extremely methodical.
Hehe brett is at it again 😀. Now what can i ask...hmm?
Well, thank you for that! I did look into it once, but only came up with it being the name of an Egyptian queen (and spelled K-I-Y-A)!
Plagiarism Rules OK 😀
89 replies Brett !!!! Is this a record ?? X
Hit > 100 now. Wowee. There are a lot of us out here...
I reckon. Brett is another font of all knowledge and challengingly questions 😏
Hhmm what sort of a sentence is that! Miles!!
Ah!!! Twos. Then Miles!!!!

Gosh! Up there for thinking. Down there for dancing 💃 innit!
Thank you. I didnt know i had the ability to think anymore.....
I had to go to messages to find out what my username is <sigh>
Anyhoo, mine is because we moved from Maine to Minnesota and it is colder here than in Maine.
Have a good Fall.
Well Mary - i had to go hospital once a week for 3 months so i didnt fall. And now you’re telling me you hope i have a good fall. Shame on you...
I got fed up of putting names down that were not accepted and in desperation put my middle name and of course added 'the great' and to my surprise it was accepted.
Wellits cool! Can i be Angusthegreat...
My middle name is Claude
Well, its a close call beteen us then Claud. I wasnt over keen on Miles but Angus?... Sorry to all Angus’s!
I've just changed my username to grandmaDylan from bridesmum.
My grandsons have three grandma's so I'm named after my dog! My children all called their nana's after their dogs so it's just carried on. The 2nd grandma is grandma trampoline 😂 because she had a trampoline in her garden. 3rd grandma is also named after her dog but has very little contact or interest in the boys.
Haha thats funny bridey! Shame on no.3
Everyone is changing their usernames!!!
I was just getting used to the old ones lol.
I shall continue to identify as Laura009
Or else you can call laura “ilovedanielcraigaka007”
118? Only 😆
So you've kept your name but changed your pic ? ...... afterall pink flowers weren't really you were they ?

Not a chance! My heart is kept for Michael Bubble 😂
Not Bublè but Bubble
Who is he?
Some Canadian singer
I know boublee but bubble?
Bubble is our pet name for each other lol
I call him bubble too it's much more English
Hmmm ... this post is 2 months old - are you still accepting comments, LOL? Comment #144- wow! I am new, so this thread was really a great way to learn more about you guys. Thank you, Brett! I chose my name because I mistakenly thought I would be the only non-Brit on the site. Of course, I quickly found out the group is from around the world! That’s so cool! Then I chose my political affiliation because it is a huge part of my identity, especially since 2016. I learned quickly not to mention politics here, but I do still wonder about the suitability of the name. Don’t want to cause offense. Anyway, nice to meet all of you!
Welcomce to the forum!
Why would you think your name would cause offense? It certainly doesn’t to me 😁
Your offended by everyone Mr Miles 😂
Especially you Mr Brett 😁
Dear 2😀’s ... Thank you for the welcome! To explain ... According to polls we see here in the US, most citizens from other countries are not fond of the current US leadership. So, I felt OK using a name that reflects who I am because this is a British site. (I would never do so on an American site due to the current huge divide in my country.) But I soon learned there are some strong supporters of the US leadership within this forum, and am wondering if my user name might seem confrontational to them. Not my goal! Just trying to be sensitive to all ... Glad the name is not offensive to you. Thanks again for the reply!
This is not a political forum but we do get shocked sometimes with your health care system. It’s totally different from the UK and Australia.
I live in Australia but spent 20 ish years in London. I would love to visit the USA once things settle down over there and if my body can take the long flight.
Yes, our systems are so different. I read another thread here yesterday re: whether the NHS was a right vs. a privilege. Incredibly interesting comments that really enlightened me as to how the “everyday Brit” copes with and views universal healthcare. So you’re an Aussie, eh? I once travelled through your country with 25 teenagers in tow. (student group) Based in Adelaide. Lovely country! Hope things DO settle down here soon and that you can manage the flight ... It *is* pretty brutal!! 🌎
Nice to meet you also. We are not fussy here. We talk to anyone 😂
We always winge about our pains and ailments. There wouldn’t be this forum if we didn’t 😂 😂
Sometimes we even chat about normal things if we post them when the moderators are on a coffee break.
I’m Brett by the way.
Hello, Brett! Thank you also for the cheery welcome! You seem to bring a lot of fun to the group. That’s always welcome in our situations, yes? 😎
Ha ha Brett - too true - but they hunt you down anyway!
Do you want a joke? I can post one as the mean mods are at home today 😂
I always like jokes. My life is a joke atm 😁
Please, may we have a joke?!
Hi. I'm only 3 days here. I picked coral but couldn't have it so plucked out sun. Not very creative, which I'd love to be, but a coral sunset would be lovely. Can I ask you what's a moderator? Am I being a bit slow.
A moderator makes sure we don’t say nasty things or fight. They have the power to delete posts or turn off comments. They can bar users if they act up etc.
They are like mommy and daddy.
They are really quite nice. They work for the British Liver Trust so they know what they are talking about.
Hehe very diplomatic Brett
Well, they need their egos stroked once in a while 😂
Hello! I actually think Coralsun *is* creative, and beautiful as well! I am a newbie, also. Welcome! ❤️
Hi. Thankyou and welcome to you also. I hope all is going ok. Coralsun
Hi, thanks for getting back to me
So is there delay or is it just taken off after and is there much of it. I read you piece on the forum. I'm really glad I found it and it's great to be able to share with all these great people but is it a worry that by sharing more and more about ourselves, that someone on the forum might recognise our stories. Does any body else have those concerns. X
You can be as open or closed as much as you feel is safe for you. You have better odds winning the lottery than you have someone knowing who you are just from your posts.
Tbh I don’t care if someone recognises my story or me. They’ll be bored sless whatever..
I'll play! Since this thread is suddenly active again. Mine is a nickname my sister gave me. Originally it was "Fuzz," given shortly after I had finished cancer treatment (about 11 years ago now) and my hair had started growing back (it was very soft and fuzzy to start with!). And then after my hair had finished growing back in, she changed it to "Fuzzy-Was-She" to stay up-to-date. But she still calls me "Fuzz" for short.
I can’t help it but every time I see your name the old Gene Wilder line comes into my head,”fuzzy wuzzy was a woman”
(Showing my age now)
So mine comes from me being fed up being asked to create a user name or identity so I thought identity can be my identity. So I’m now always either identity or identity75 for my birth year.
A mere youngster then! Lucky you - well at least wrt age...
Hi. You're absolutely right with that. I'm a bit reserved, my family too. Some people are so judgemental but I'll keep your attitude in mind. Thanks.
Hi, that's so good. Makes me chuckle. You sister must be a right laugh.
Going in for my assessment tests tomorrow feeling very anxious - not about the tests but the outcome! Thanks...
have done this because I have just had my life turned upside down and I am usually a very strong person...
