I went to summer camp as a kid and worked as a camp counselor every summer between the ages of 14 and 20. When I was 20 I was hired by the camp as assistant director. Fun times!

Do you like to binge watch shows?

Iím not much of a binger, if I have the DVDs and thereís no commercials then I might binge favorite shows. But seriously after the second show of any kind Iím getting antsy. Strange cause I can read all kinds of books for hours but tv I need change.

If you could cast a movie with all your favorites who would you pick, alive or dead.

I don't know what kind of a movie it would turn out to be (a strange one, to be sure), but let's go with Frances McDormand, Willem Dafoe, Joe Pesci...& Chris Farley?

Have you ever played/studied a musical instrument? What made you choose it, & if you stopped playing, why?

After my ballet days ended (long story), I started studying the piano. I've always loved the instrument and had an upright piano. I stopped during a period when symptomatic with bipolar. Years down the line my mother wanted me to take my piano, but I couldn't because I didn't have enough room in my house. That was pretty sad. I wish I had been able to. Too long ago now.

Can you sing well? Regardless of if you can/can't, what do you like to sing?

I canít sing at all. But I love professor Childís ballads. Iíve forgotten most of them now. Way back, way, way back at the U they had live music at the college coffee shop. One weekend it was a woman who sung old ballads mostly a cappella but also had some renaissance instruments. She told me all about the ballads and I loved them. Most are about fair maidens and mischievous knights.

Have you ever listened to or sung folk music?

Yes in high school I use to sing Scottish songs and have done for my exams. There is also a thing here called The Leng Medal which I have done 3 times coming 2nd twice and 3rd. Kids do this at 11 or 12 years of age until 18 years old.

Question: What things do you do to keep the depression at bay?

No, thank God

Have you ever looked for your therapist or pdoc on social media?

Sadly yes. Not in recent years though. I just wanted to know more about my therapist since I told her so much every week about me. I went and discovered she is normal person. What is your best mental tool in the tool box?

Iím pretty none impulsive. That gives me time to think things though. Of course when Iím manic that goes flying out the window 🪟( always seem to break the glass and do great damage) the key is to be alert to head off the mania by lifestyle and med change

If you could pick up a certain skill instantly, what would it be, and why?
