Its so hard to answer the OP question.

I'd get a test for von weillerbrands disorder before tonsil surgery, that'd save me six months of ill health.

I would avoid some bad experiences by : Never visiting a particular pub. Never get so drunk u chuck or pass out. Watch your drink for spikers.

Hi peeps This ones Sooo easy you my young self are enough so reach that bit higher and expect more for your self and Believe that you are totally capable. Plus follow your gut instincts!

1) The fact your old man killed people for a living will effect you later so be prepared. DONT IGNORE IT!! Seek help now!
2) Dont do drugs. It will destroy you inside.
3) Dont drink. It does not agree with you and later in life you will struggle with it.
4) People that betray you should never be given a second chance.
5) Ignore politics its just a puppet game.
