Awww Zarah, Im sorry things arent great for you at the moment. I'm sending hugs your way.
Some people just dont think about what they say before they say it, or i guess frankly some people just dont care if it hurts. I remember my ex-boyfriends mum saying to me 'thats a nice skirt Belinda.....makes you look thinner' and she didnt mean it in a flattering way at all. And there was countless similar times. I guess Im lucky now my boy's parents are absolutely fantastic, but i do know what its like when they're mean, i cant imagine how hard it must be for you living with them.
Im totally emotional too, so I say cry as much as you want, sometimes it makes you feel better in the end. And even if it doesnt, at least it gets the tears out.
And I say an enormous well done to you, congratulations for fitting into the dress! Thats awesome, its always so good to see results!
And if you ever need to talk, we're all here listening and you have me on myspace so feel free to message me on their if you need to b*tch!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend
