We were in the throws of phonics. I hope your nuns were better than the ones we had. Although that is not all that high of a bar to hit. Ours were awful.

Oh dear, phonics. When we did that, my mother was working the late shift at the hospital and supervising homework was my dad. Who was not a native English speaker. So we both ended up convinced of things like cake had a short A.

He was much better at math.

I'm afraid she thinks I'm overly dependent, far too needy, etc etc and feel ashamed that I do rely on her/therapy and also feel a lot of shame that I haven't "got myself figured out yet" at going on 59. Shame at feeling so broken this late in life. That I can't just magically be some better version of myself. Like I'm doing life wrong.
Hugs. I'm like that too even though I try to act like I'm independent in therapy. I'm younger than you and feel the shame although I'd never judge anyone else. For example I feel you're courageous and really don't see you as "broken" though I get why you'd feel you are. I feel like we're all trying to figure out ourselves, and I definitely feel this whole "I'm doing life wrong".

I have now got my fitness app to tell me how many of a particular item I could eat given my exercise for the day. Tosay I hit 1419 blueberries.
I should create an app that tells people when to stop eating blueberries before they go uh freudian!
