You're Welcome cards

Posted by confused , 15 July 2014 · 67 views

My husband's family is very much into sending thank you cards and letting people know you received the cards. I wasn't raised that way so I think they go overboard. I think I could make a fortune selling you're welcome cards to his family.

When I was in the hospital the first time they had us do crafts. One was to make a card to ourselves. I wrote that...


I want to be like you ooh ooh

There is a thread going that has come to a discussion of primates. This poem came to mind. I don't want to derail the conversation so I am blogging it.

The Monkeys Disgrace

Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree
Discussing things as they're said to be.
Said one to another, "Now listen, you two,
There's a certain rumor that cannot be true,...


Too darn hot

Posted by confused , 24 June 2014 · 58 views

Summer is here. It isn't record temps but hot and dry. My son graduated from 6th grade today and we sat out in the sun. ugh. And my mother-in-law and I bought him gifts. My daughter was complaining that we just gave her a balloon when she graduated from elementary school. I told her she is our test kid and we learned from her, which didn't go over well. H...


Slapping, hitting

Posted by confused , 22 June 2014 · 91 views

I didn't want to distract from anything but i was reminded of this. My husband jokes a lot and sometimes he says things that don't sound nice. I know he is kidding. But, I have this instinct to strike back. I think I am just nudging him, but I slap his arm or hit it. It isn't even something I am conscious of doing. He told me not to hit him and I make a...


boring is okay?

Posted by confused , 20 June 2014 · 87 views

I don't have a lot of outside interests. I spend time with my family. I do some volunteering. But, I spend a lot of time goofing around on-line. I make lists so I remember to get some things done and I follow through on obligations. I feel like I should have something to talk about when I meet/talk to people. I went out with a friend last night and I ran...

I wrote a post for my friend schizo incognito's blog

I am doing well. Not sure if I am ready for my kids to be out of school. The last day is the 25th. I am trying to decide if I should go to a support group tonight. I don't really need the support anymore but it is nice seeing people.

I saw tdoc today. I wasn't sure what to talk about. Things are going okay. We did fill the time but nothing deep. I am going to start going monthly since I am doing well. I told her i didn't want to just come "as needed" because I am not sure if I will realize I need it.

I haven't been beating myself up lately. I told her i thought maybe since my mo...


feminism, humanism #YesAllCats

Posted by confused , 04 June 2014 · 120 views

I have been hanging out on twitter following the #YesAllWomen HT. There are many moving tweets of women's experiences with abuse, violence, discrimination harassment. They moved over to #EachEveryWoman for a few reasons. One was that the originator was getting threats. Which shows the point. The HT started up after the Elliot Rodger killings.



awesome audience

Posted by confused , 31 May 2014 · 111 views

I sometimes speak about my experience with mental illness to various audiences. It is through NAMI. There are 2 presenters and a video. I am not a great public speaker but these seem to go over pretty well.

Today i spoke to 3 high school AP Psychology classes. The first 2 with another presenter. We had to condense it a little to fit in the class times, a...
