Oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite, too. I generally don't make them for Christmas, though.

short

I never, ever, ever wear long. I don't like the way it feels on my skin

you wake up one morning with no mental health issues and no physical pain. you think it's great, until you see a note that says, this will only last 24 hours. anything you do in these 24 hours, will be wiped from your life tomorrow, and when you wake up, you will be the same person as you were before this day. what do you do with your 24 hours?

Gone With the Wind, and Melanie is my favorite character. I love that she loves so hard, and is also gentle and strong.


Q: What feels romantic to you?

Good question. I think maybe papa bear and I have different ''love languages''.. he mostly shows his love by things like cooking, I thought, to begin with, that Charles and Diana were ''romantic'' but how wrong I was. With his cruelty and all.

do you sometimes experience ''rapid cycling'' moods or similar?

I did a lot before I went on clozapine. Now it's rare.

Do you have recycling pick-up at your house?

Yup we do. It’s old school here though, three bins and no glass. They are quite picky.

Do you recycle? If not, why not?

Yeah (and it's not old school here at all), although I'm pretty sure they just throw out everything anyways since some people can't differentiate between recyclable plastics and non-recyclable plastics.

If you were a musician, what genre of music would you play? Would it be different from your favorite genre?

The blues. I dabbled with playing Blues guitar and that type of music reaches into so many different genres to me. Rock, Soul, even some Metal.

What is the most heartfelt gift you have ever received from someone?

You have a Tatty Teddy?! So lucky!

When I was seventeen a boy who kept asking me out on dates (I kept refusing) put a very large, heart-shaped box of chocolates at my door on Valentine's Day. My mom saw it and I was so angry I threw it all away Now I am ashamed of myself for having done such a thing.


Q: What are 3 things you'd like in a good therapist?

Intelligence, loyalty, empathy

Three worst qualities for a therapist?

Conspiratorial (I actually had a therapist try to connect COVID vaccines to the Mark of the Beast from Revelation.), Imperious (particularly when it comes to new meds or treatments), but also Indecisive (With one therapist, it was like pulling teeth trying to get a recommendation for anything.)

Have you had dreams that were obvious metaphors for the issues and problems you faced that day?

Yeah. Actually had one last night (wrote about it in the check in thread but it's kinda triggering).

flannels or hoodies for cool weather (or other)?

Not really a holiday drink so much as seasonal, but classic hot chocolate.

Hot chocolate related question: Marshmallows or No?

No

Has it snowed where you are yet (assuming you're in the N. Hemisphere)?

Yup. Not oodles but enough to stick around and cause ice on the road. It’s the hard cold powdery stuff that’s no good for snowman ☃️ and snowballs and not quite enough for sledding. Just a hassle.

Do you do anything for thanksgiving? Does it have any meaning to you beyond obligatory get together s with family?

Not sure this year. We might have a special meal. It does mean something to me (fortunately we do not have to get together with distant (or mean) family members)

Favourite cook book (if any)?
