When I started doing LJ I had just got a brand spanking new laptop which was all mine. While I was exploring the internet quite by accident I can across the community Time And Chips. As I was very ill at the time I was not able to go to school. Aty school I was bullied for liking Doctor Who amongst many things so when I found this community (and I had no idea LJ even existed then) I suddenly felt normal again. Normal and happy - I felt comfortable expressing my opinions knowing that I was with fellow fans who would not laugh at me. With this site I florished and now feel much more able to make friends. It may not sound like a big deal but when I joined Time and Chips I thought I was the only one who felt as strongly about Doctor Who, I felt like i was silly for liking it so much. With the help of this communtiy I learned that it wasn't me that had the problem it was them. They had the problem because they were the ones who couldn't accept that other people felt differently about something to how they did. This was the firt step to me regaining my confidence. By gaining the confidence to talk to people about Doctor Who on Time and Chips I felt more able to express my opinion about anything to anyone. LJ gave me the help I needed to regain my confidence.
