Sunday 4th September 2016
Today I went to church. I go to church every Sunday. Our church has been going now for over 40 years and my Mum and Dad helped to pioneer it all those years ago.
I grew up there and the church is fairly big. I have seen many people come and go throughout the years. I also have a lot of friends there.
Today I had a lot of people come up to me and say how good I am looking, how I have changed. One person said it was good to see me happy and smiling again.
I would always have said that I am a happy person. I have always seen things in a positive light rather than a negative. Growing up I was always told that I was the funny one in the family. I like to make people laugh.
When I was younger I was up for anything, I was quite daring. I also used to laugh a lot. In fact I use to have hysterical fits. I would find something funny and then I couldn’t stop laughing for ages afterwards. My laugh has got me into so much trouble sometimes
Once, when I was younger, we went to an Indian restaurant and the waiter kept tripping over the carpet really close to where my brother was sitting. I would imagine curry going all over my brothers head so I started laughing. Then my brother and sister started laughing. My dad sent me to the toilet to calm down but when I came back again I would burst out laughing again. So my dad sent me away again. When I came back I sat down calm really trying my hardest not to laugh. We had the attention of the whole restaurant at this point all waiting to see what was going to happen.
My dad broke the silence first because by this time he couldn’t help but laugh. It ended up that the whole restaurant were in hysterics but no one had a clue what they were laughing at except for me.
I didn’t really realise until today that I had lost my fun side. I didn’t really realise that I had stopped laughing.
I think I was just happy to hide away. I am glad I am coming back out of my shell again.
