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

AllHis

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.

Shhhh

Look...

Quite now...

The Peace of Christ...

All is well...

I have all I need.

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!

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.

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 ...

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.

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

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.
