A class you wish you would have taken?

Photography. And more Art classes. However I did get to take a Cinematography class in High School which was lots of fun!

What’s your favorite comic figure and why?

When I was a kid I Loved Charlie Brown because I could relate to him. Both of us had constant bad luck, were total screw-ups and Beagles for pets.

Name something you wish you could like.

Math. I really loathe and despise math. Never made any sense to me. Numbers are confusing and I was always getting failing grades in school. Algebra and geometry make my head spin!!

Tell me about your first crush / first date / first kiss.

I thought I was in Love with Paul McCartney of the Beatles. Later on Freddie Prinze from Chico and the Man.

Boy named Phillip. He was a sloppy kisser. Yuck! Glad that he was older than me so went off to college and I never saw him again.

Who was your best friend when you were 10?

Can’t remember back that far. Maybe it was Dora Wilson who eventually had to get a shot-gun wedding. Last I heard she was in Alaska. Or it could have been Jackie who was a foster child. Sadly she wound up in an insane asylum.

What sign are you?

Pisces.

Do you believe in astrology?

To a Degree.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Vacation. Had a chance to rest, relax and do all the things I can’t do when I’m working. Today is the last day of my vacation. Back to work tomorrow. Ugh! With my job I only look forward to the weekends when I’m NOT at the workplace.

I assume my DID is more clearly visible on social media, but even in Second Life,
when some of the alternates logged in with separate accounts and avatars,
most people assumed I was really good at role play.

Most of my friends describe me as talented, bright, positive, passionate, and
compassionate.

But I’m also depressed, impulsive, sometimes self-destructive, suicidal, and self
loathing.

I experience depression as if it is a separate self because it feels as if I see the
world through another man’s eyes.

This depressed self impulsively acted out when we  were younger.

He usually wound up in crisis clinics and on psych units.

We’re older and better at coping when the depressed self comes out;
but coping takes so much energy there is little left for anything else.

When I tell people I am symptomatic what I mean is that I have all
