    Ok I was born in London. My mum is French / Indian and my Dad is Indian. I grew up in the bad part of town - North East London. My dad is an orthopaedic surgeon with a practice @ Barts and Harley St. My mum is basically a gold digger - but she's a lovely woman and she does my cooking / washing etc so it's ok. I have two younger sisters. I went to a boys school in Ilford but my thinking was way too advanced for them so I left and went to a private school. Then I got into Oxford where I got a first. I've had many girls in the past but not for very long. I like to receive but don't like to give. We now live in North West London and I live in w8. I am quite fortunate but i feel I have underachieved given my capabilities.

    Dunno what else there is to say.

    Would love to know your stories. Let's make this a great thread!

    He seems to live in a fantasy land, making up stories in his head and telling people about them. He is convinced his toy cars are real. He struggles at school due to all his daydreaming. He also gets in trouble all the time, often for pulling girl's pigtails.

    The child psychiatrist doesn't know what is wrong. We blame ourselves. Increasingly I find myself turning to the bottle.

    ok so i was born in asia and i lived there for like 4 years
    then i went to britain because my mum got jobs here and errthing, so we lived in this white area in london for a few months and it was ok, then we moved to south wales in cardiff to live in this massive house for few months, then we moved to yorkshire where i grew up and my childhood was basically constructed there.

    i lived in halifax and now when i tell people that they say ''YOU CANT LIVE IN A BANK'' so i just blank them.
    i lived in halifax for 6 years, there i was subjected to racism by OTHER MINORITIES OF BRITAIN. they call me chinese and egg my house, it was a horrible experience. but i got a long well with some of them in the end cos we all grew up and matured.


    then i moved...to london again. there i live in a flat like i was in poverty or something, but really we were well off, i felt like i fit in cos i was a minority, still is but u know. then after year 7 i moved to wales again so its like a cycle. i now live in south wales, and will do so until i finish sixth form, im thinking of going to an english uni. what u fink

    Hi! I'm Ravioli (not my real name) and I'm going to try and give you a small outlook of who I am.

    I'm 16 from London, UK and was told that I have UC in March this year - just before my final secondary school exams were to take place. All of my symptoms began when I was aged 11/12, which is really young compared to the average age. Everything was horrible then, and I was 26kg. I had my first colonoscopy and was told that I have a minor form of colitis, the name too long to remember and was also told that I have anaemia. They didnt give me any medication and was only given iron tablets and multivitamins. After a while, I was discharged from hospital
    For three years, the disease was in remission - until everything came back. All the symptoms came back at the wrong time, as I was prepping for my final exams and was weighing 39kg. The doctors thought it came back because of stress. I was told that I would have another colonoscopy a week after my first hospital appointment in three years. That was when they said it may be PROBABLE Ulcerative Colitis. They then asked me to take corticosteroids for 10 weeks (40mg a week, dose decreasing each week) with Omeprazole (20mg), mesalazine (octasa 2.4g) daily, calcichew d3 (twice daily), ferrous fumrate 315mg (one daily) and multivitamins. What sucked the most was that it was two / three months before exams and because I was newly diagnosed, I had to visit the hospital weekly for blood tests, which didnt make my teachers very happy until they got the proof that they needed from my IBD nurse.
    My exams went great though and I got amazing grades = 100 per cent better than what I thought I would get (even my parents got shocked haha) and am now in college (known as sixth form in the UK) and am still doing fab! I was given extra time in exams just in case I needed a break in between. Whats really annoying is that I feel that teachers are being much more nicer to me - which I dont want because I want to feel like every other student.
    I now visit the hospital every 3-5 months and I get flares 1 or 2 times a month. I am still on iron, multivitamins, calcium and octasa (thrice daily).

    Sorry for the lecture!
    Hope that tells you something about me

    Well, I was born in a deprived town on the outside of Manchester, to parents who are both Bangladeshi. My Dad works as a typical Bangladeshi immigrant does - a chef in an Indian restaurant, and my mum is a housewife, something I'm not particularly proud of lol.
    As far as education goes, I've been state schooled from the very beginning. At secondary school (an underperforming one), I was considered bright for achieving high grades earlier than my peers, but that went slightly downhill at the time it really mattered, Year 11. But I got the highest in the year and it's still good enough for me to pursue what I'm pursuing now, at sixth form, so all is well. My first choice university is Cambridge and it would be so amazing if I could actually get in :daydreaming:

    I don't know what will happen in the future but I sure hope it involves me making a valuable contribution somehow and being happy :yep:

    That's basically it

    Thank you for sharing. It is inspiring to see someone who overcomes their illness and actively doesn't want people's sympathy because of it.
