Homework time

Guess it's time to work on my homework since I'll be too busy the rest of the weekend to get it done. I'm just going to do it here and then print it out for the T. I'd be curious to know how others would answers these questions.

1. Emotion tend to hide the most: All of them

2. Emotion you seem to experience the most: Anger

3. Predominant emotion lately: Anger

4. A moment when you achieved absolute happiness: Don't think I have ever achieved it, think the closest I've come that I can remember is when my daughter read her commencement speech at the 8th grade graduation and I was beaming with intense pride.

5. You have a great amount of guilt regarding: Just about everything...having been in the hospital so often and the pain it causes my daughter, being on disability and not being a productive member of society, and not having a home of my own which prevents my parents from selling their house & retiring are just a few examples.

6. You would feel envious right now if: I rarely, if ever, feel envy so absolutely nothing comes to mind for this one.

7. A piece of music that makes you sentimental: Any and all of the Swan Lake Ballet Suite by Tchaikovsky.

8. The music reminds you of: It was the first ballet I danced after advancing to toe shoes at the age of 11, gave me hope that my dream of being a professional ballerina wasn't unrealistic. It also brings to mind words such as grace, beauty, excitement, elegance and awe.

As for the final question my T gave me, about the contract with my ex, I'm simply going to give her a copy of the letter I gave him about filing for divorce and how he no longer has the right to come to me with his problems. It pretty much outlines everything I'd be willing to do and what I want from him, which is what she wanted to know.

1) Emotion I hide the most? Depression

2) Emotion I seem to experience the most? Anger

3) Predominant emotion lately? Anger

4) A moment when you achieved absolute happiness? I can't really think of anything. I assume it was the moment my kids were born, but I just don't remember.

5) You have a great amount of guilt regarding: My illness. I know it is just as hard on my family as it is on me. I just want to be normal. I would just like to know what it feels like to be normal, so I know how far off I am.

I had no idea you once wanted to be a professional ballet dancer! I guess we shared the same dream as children. This is a nice questionnaire, btw.

I came across your earlier 2004 blog posts and followed your blog through. Jeez - you ought to compile it and write a book. I'll be popping by to look up some experiences you have. Personal development gems are hidden in your journey. I guess it must be tough to experience hidden anger and stuff. I wish you the best.
