> moosehaps occurred to me when I read about an unfortunate mishap (non-lethal) involving a moose and a vehicle at a road crossing. Incidentally, have we not a single "Brooke" or "Brook" babbling on this board?!
> As the light of day grows shorter, I'm going to be retiring to the shadows (which sounds more glamorous than "hanging all day without getting dressed" because I'm thinking deep thoughts) for some very overdue introspection and consideration of ideas gleaned from you, pixygoth and the many thoughtful contributors on this board.
> Have you ever read about a mythic character named Ereshkigal, who inflicted some very serious PMDD acting out onto those around her, until she decided to really take a look at herself? She had to go underground, (to hell, you might say), physically and psychologically, before she could recognize her own hand in her troubles. I must do as E.
> I sense your strength of purpose in how you're undertaking to make a new life for yourself, and am similarly inspired to get busy reconstructing my own.
> I will keep you and all who babble here in my heart.
** You write so poetically. I do love the name Moosehaps. It makes me think of blundering sweet Moose who has good intentions, but always seems to get himself in trouble. Hmmmm an idea for a children's story. I wonder if you mind if I use it? I"m taking a children's story writing course. Babbling Brooke is a good name for this board. I haven't heard of that Ereshkigal character, but will look her up.
By the way, what is your "diagnosis" and what meds are you on?
