I have been on EB since the 31st of July 2003 when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby.  

How long have you been around EB?

First joined in 2004 and was here for about 6 months. Then I forgot my log in details and rejoined in 2007.

I was pretty anonymous though until I changed my username to Xena original.gif

Since I was about 25 weeks pregnant with my DS who is starting high school next week. biggrin.gif

(When I put it like that, it kind of blows my mind a little bit.)

I have a real love-hate relationship with EB, but not many other things have been as constant in my life over the last decade.

It's massively addictive.

Mostly for me I think it's because it's so hard to debate topics IRL with my friends. They often get uncomfortable with difference of opinion and see it as arguing. I love a rousing debate personally and am pretty hard to offend and love debating topics biggrin.gif
Plus there are so many intelligent women here who can really make me think and examine my opinions and beliefs. That excites me tongue.gif

Sometimes I wander off for awhile but it never seems to last very long laughing2.gif

I am coming up on my 5th anniversary!

I joined while we were living in Singapore. Our daughter had just received her provisional ASD diagnosis, and we were scrambling to relocate to Australia. I didn't know where were were going to end up living, but I thought the North Shore of Sydney sounded nice...so I started posting in the (now defunct) Lower North Shore group thread.

I ended up getting four wonderful friends out of that group, including my closest friend in Sydney -- the gorgeous Kay1.

I don't even live in the Lower North Shore  biggrin.gif , but I guess I will always be an honorary "LNS" member!

I joined in 2000, had a baby, sleep deprived and forgot my log in details, and was busy with stuff.  So created this user name in 2003. I should change it as DS is certainly not into the wiggles!!

I just realised I have only been here half as long as many people here and yet have 19,500 posts as of the next one. I either talk too much or need to get a life. Probably both laughing2.gif
