Sunday Random Q and A

1. Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I’m not sure. I guess sometimes I would. If I had a choice I’d like to be a writer, and I still might be one some day.
2. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?
Not usually. I dont have phone anxiety thankfully. I like talking on the phone. I’m good at it too lol.
3. What would constitute a perfect day for you?
A day where everything in my life went right, where I got to see the people who are important to me, where the sun shone bright and no clouds were in the sky
4. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?
I sing to myself all the time. I love singing. Cant really rmemember when I last sang to someone else.
5. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?
The mind. I dont care about looks but to lose your mind due to old age or dementia or another affliction would be terrible. I’d rather be dead than do that.
6. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?
Sadly I think it will be either by suicide, or illness, since I’ve attempted suicide on numerous occasions its still a part of my life at times, I dont think it ever goes away.
7. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

For my guide dog, my health, my family, my therapist and psychiatrist

8. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

I’d love it if I could make my dad not drink alcohol to excess, and if I was able to stop his anger outbursts, I would not want my mental illnesses, or abuse history.

9. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

I’d like the ability to cook for myself, and I’d also like the ability to drive.

10. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?

How I was going to die, if I’d ever recover, if my sister was going to have any more kids

11. What does friendship mean to you?

to me friendship is where you treat someone with respect, love them, accept them for who they are and where they’re at, treat them with integrity and honesty

12. What roles do love and affection play in your life?

I have a partner whom I love dearly. I’m a very affectionate person, I freely give and recieve hugs and kisses to family and friends

Last night while I was on skype with my friend Sarah

Tattoos anyone?

Do you have any tattoos? Do you like them? Would you like one if you dont have any? If you do have some what do you have?
I’ve always wanted to get a butterfly. Ever since our teen years I’ve wanted that. Either a butterfly or a dolphine, those were my choices. I think though a butterfly represents more of me. And what I stand for and am about.
I think it would be so painful though so that is why I’ve not gone and done it yet. Plus I dont really like the idea of skin sagging when I get old. And what if I go and then half way through I cant take the pain and its too late to stop? So many questions.
Tell me about your tattoos, do you have any that represent your illness, or healing from it?
