I’d like to thank the wonderful Kat from familyfurore.com for passing this award over to me. Kat hosts a powerful mental health blog in which she shares her personal experiences in raising her amazing teenage daughter Jessie who has bipolar disorder, PTSD and anxiety. Kat is a kind, funny and truly inspirational mental health advocate who has been a wonderful support to me over the time I have been blogging. Thanks again Kat, you’re a star!
So without further ado, here are the answers to Kats questions!
1) If you lived as part of self sufficient community, what would your contribution be?
Hmm… I don’t know… I lack many basic life skills so they would probably kick me out pretty quickly… I could possibly document the goings on journal style thus creating their own history books…?
2) If you were a fruit, which fruit would you be, and why?
I would be a quince, this is because I have an unrealistic fear of being eaten alive and of all the fruits I could think of, quince tastes the worst!
3) If you were to go on the Dr Phil show, what dilemma from your life would you be on there for?
Oh geez… So many dilemmas to choose from…. if I were to look around my house for inspiration right now the show could potentially be titled “My Bipolar Teenage Mother Has Too Many Pets”
4) Cats or dogs? Both or neither, and why?
I love and have both, but gun to my head… Cats… This is purely a laziness thing, cats don’t need walking or constant attention so I feel less guilty towards the cats if I am depressed and not being the perfect pet owner.
5) What’s the biggest letdown you’ve forgiven in a friend?
She stole money from the job I worked at and I was blamed – she never spoke up and to this day doesn’t know I knew it was her. It was 15yrs ago, I have let it go, she is worth it.
6) What are the first three words that immediately come to mind after reading this sentence?
First. Three. Words.
7) What is your most commonly spoken word or phrase? (Honesty required, profanity totally acceptable)
There would be a close tie between: “Where did I put the …?” and “Are you fucking kidding me?” Often said one after the other.
8) What makes you feel the most content in life?
Being alone yet surrounded by nature on a warm spring day.
9) If you could change one core fault in humanity, what would it be?
10) What are three things you’re most grateful for?
11) Do you cut your sandwiches into rectangles or triangles?
Triangles. Unless I am cranky with the sandwich receiver, then I passive aggressively cut them into rectangles!
Thanks again for that Kat, they were some great questions!
