I'm definitely NOT near your age. Probaly older than you Mom! But I want you to know that you are welcome here and among friends. Even if most of us are older than you.
Anther site you may want to visit, started by a young woman, is www.butyoudontlooksick.com - read the spoon story, you'll relate I know their site has a posting about college questions - so there are people who are younger.
YOu don't have to LEAVE us though! Your perspective will be most welcome among our group.
