Lack of Confidence and independence did play a major role . It still plays a part in my life still but it is not as bad.
Throughout my teens, my confidence was pretty low as I was new to my BI back then and I was trying to live my life like most others, big mistake!
I went to college for awhile, still with pretty low confidence but after college is where my confidence, along with independence packed it's bags.
About six years later, Headway came along, my confidence was slowly rebuilding again, great.
Although confidence has defintiely got better my independence is still a bit pants. I have spoken with a friend about this and they have given me a couple of ideas about raising my independence.
I wanted to move out at one stage, I was on the verge of doing it. I got into contact with some support but a part of me was just not ready to move out. I had the support I needed from me folks but did not have the space I wanted.
Maybe one day, I will be ready to move out... Just not yet.
