Okay one last question so not to drive anyone crazy...
Okay, when it comes time to Choosing a Confirmation name how do you do it?
I mean I heard you pick one that has some qualities as you yourself have.

Okay well see I am
Quiet at times, Shy,I am stand offish with people after being burned by a use to be friend too many times,I cry easy.

See difficult eh :(

I was thinking
St. Therese of Lisieux because we have a few things in common..

She was
Very Sensitive,cried easy
I am very sensitive,and I do cry easy

She was an emotional child
I was to and still am

She was sickly
I was sick a lot as a child and to this day I get sick very easily

She got overwhelmed
I do get very overwhelmed a lot

and every time I go on the web, her photo appears A LOT, no other Saints

She also had a friend who went away for an extended period of time. When she returned, the friend no longer wanted to play with her. Therese felt betrayed, and realized the only one who would always be faithful was God.
