Still Growing...I'm considered very tall for my age. I'm over 175cm (which is about 5' 8"), in my mid-teens and still growing. I wake up some mornings and people tell me its like I've grown 2 inches overnight. I used to feel very self-concious about my height (i was nearly 160 by the time i was in 6th grade). The first thing people would notice about me was 'wow, you're tall'. Every single time. All my friends are much shorter than me, most of them by nearly a foot. I apparently take my tallness from my father, who is just under 6 feet at 5' 11". It has caused problems, particularly in the last few years, being so much taller than all my peers, but now its much easier to deal with. It was always more of a comparative thing, being so much taller then most other people my age.
