SO, ARE YOU A DEVIANT, OR JUST MENTALLY DISORDERED?

I found an Abnormal Psychology book, a text book, which only works on my Kindle. So whatever I read last night is still reverberating around my belfry. I take that back, it was a regular psychology textbook and I started reading the two chapters on pathology. Psychology is the study of human (and... Sign in to see full entry.

FARMERS' MARKET

Thinking b back to the days when the farmers all went to town on the same day to sell their wares. Then separate the beer money from the egg money. We have come a long ways from there, judging from today's carnival atmosphere at Des Moines Farmers Market. People are so starved for sun and other... Sign in to see full entry.

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG HERE, AND DON'T YOU DARE TELL ANYBODY

"There is no way to change your being, by doing." - Bradshaw The roles played out in our family of eight kids seemed to rotate as the older three grew up.

OUT OF THE CLOSET

It's time for me to be out of the closet. So here I go. Others of my siblings have said "...what alcoholism are you referring to, your own?" No. I'm referring to the life long death match between our father and mother. He, the two-fisted, self - made man who graduated from high school in 1929, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Classes start May 20. Three classes. Interview Counseling, Counseling theory and Abnormal Psych. I'm so looking forward to it. I've had to stop in to the campus several times to use their computers and straighten out some registration bugs. Each time I get the notion that it is doable. Last summer...

AND SO BECOME YOURSELF

I'm parked in a lot off E. 14th St. My battery is nearly gone so this must be quick. A quick review of the book I am reading, by John Bradshaw, tells me the following. Two sure paths to unhappiness are neglect and abuse. Two separate sets of terms but the same result. When a child is neglected or... Sign in to see full entry.

ADDENDUM TO MY WEEKEND

I didn't realize that I left off my Saturday activities. My oldest girl (25) called and woke me up Saturday morning. Mind you I had been in the 9th grade all week and was REALLY enjoying sleeping in. But it was 8:15 and she said we had to go to the farmers market. And, said she, you need to start... Sign in to see full entry.

MY NEW WEEK END ATTITUDE. HINT: NOT STAYING ABED ALL DAY

Then Sunday the 17 year old friend requested me on f-book. The president of the 2nd Ave Post of the VFW, who is like a... Sign in to see full entry.

AWAITING PUTIN'S NEXT MOVE? IT HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE

Everyone is waiting for and discussing what Putin's next move will be. Well today we found out. Is he going to roll tanks across Ukraine's border where he had amassed 40,000 Russian troops? No indeed. The key diplomatic terms used to describe this Russian outrage are "changing Europe's borders by... Sign in to see full entry.

WELL SHUT MY MOUTH!

Because of my bibliotherapy which I shared with you, I have come to the realization that, in the words of my daughter's friend, there's more to life. So she basically took the several paragraphs out of my conversation. I was going there: P-TSD (my freeze behavior because that's all I deserve,... Sign in to see full entry.
