Hello It's Senghenydd again Thanks for the information about Burn's World I had a brief look at it it looks ok I have two web site which should be of interest to you firstly there's the Katie Piper Web site, Katie was a young model who was going somewhere, however she got involved with the wrong guys and had acid thrown in her face it was very strong acid her face is badly disfigured and she lost an eye her teeth she has had more than two hundred operations anyway her web site is she runs workshops and raises funds for hospital treatment she was running a Burns Support Group in Nottingham only I suspect that went pear shape another group I would like to recommend to you is www.chelwest.nhs/services/surgery/burns-service/burns-support-groups try accessing those web sites I'm sure you'll find them interesting anyway it's 9.31 am in the old country time I went off and done some work Bye for now, Senghenydd

Hey Nicole,<br />
<br />
Thank you for sharing your story with us! It's always great to hear from people telling their own stories with the fire and the flames.<br />
<br />
You're an extraordinary kid to share your story so young as you have here.<br />
<br />
Know that there are others like you who have been burned. Just take a look around this group, and see what they have to say as well on being burned.<br />
<br />
I have no doubt that you will turn into a fine young woman one day.<br />
<br />
If you ever have questions or concerns about how you expect to deal with being burned, just ask anyone from this group and I know that they or I would be willing to sit down and walk through your trials and tribulations with you so that you never have to feel alone.
