19. I used to enter competitions (stuff in the paper, colouring competitions etc) growing up and won so much stuff! CD's, movie tickets, doll house, a tent, year supply of Aeroplane Jelly, chocolate, a cordless drill for my dad...I used to be really lucky!!
20. I used to keep journals through my teenage years. They were full of agnst and unrequited love...I re-read them all a few years ago and was so embarassed by the contents that I destroyed the lot!

48. I was so nervous walking up the aisle on my wedding day with my dad that I almost cried. The only way I could stop myself wasto grit my teeth and not look at anyone...which is why the photos taken early in the ceremony do not seem like I am enjoying the happiest day of my life!
49. I spent hours and hours as a teenager in chat rooms and used to stay up to all hours of the morning talking to my 'friends'. I was always amazed at how bitchy chatrooms could get.
50. With my first pay from my first job I bought myself a very cool pair of bright red Reeboks! I was so proud...

I'd never heard of emetophobia before! Oh boy... pregnancy is going to be a challenge!

This is fun to read :)

No I didn't know there was even a name for my phobia until a little while ago. I probably don't have an extreme case but it's effected me since I was about 8 years old.

Will be interesting to see how I handle morning sickness as I can count on one hand the number of tines I have vomited inthe past 15 years!
