Oh, my Fiery Celt, tempestuous redheads are vital in this world... didn't you know? they have a purpose. I learned that in high school.
According to my high school chemistry teacher, redheads were created to add interest and excitement to the dull lives other people lead...
of course he also used to say he hoped I would become a teacher so my students could be his revenge...

As for acting, why can you not start acting at 39?
I have changed career paths so often that I have lost track and 39 is not too late... I was 32 when I decided I wanted to become a broadcaster... had left teaching for the antique business and was bored with that, so I walked into the local radio station and told the manager and news director they should hire me. They did. Not sure who was the more surprised actually.
Within a year I was Director of talk and information for the three stations. A couple of years later I was working for a national tv network part time as well and producing television shows for a cable network on the side and the radio network for which I worked was now a 16 station network...
Somewhere in there I found time to teach emotionally disturbed high school students in my spare time... that was a riot!!! ... and to help a friend in her flower shop... I can't stand having nothing to do...
Then the epilepsy began its drive for control of my life, so it was time to take it easy for a while.
During this relaxed era someone told me that there was a need for a particular sort of magazine and I should do something about it, so for seven years I published and edited a magazine. Sold it a year- and-a-half ago... it had become an eighteen-hour-a-day proposition, sometimes twenty and it was too hard on me. I have not looked at an issue since I sold it, don't want to know what it is like now that it is not my baby...
but it was a wild ride while it lasted and I miss it...
now I am back to television and I like being back at work although I prefer radio...
no one sees you and you can wear jeans and it doesn't matter if its a bad hair day or you bothered with make-up, and who cares how much you weigh...
ADD has a great influence on me... I cannot sit still and let life go past... I have to be busy stirring all the pots at once and throwing in other bits to change the recipe... and yes someone is always wondering when I am going to grow up...
the answer is never...
I am 'just only four years old' and plan to stay that way. Peter Pan and I are twins.
When one turns five one has to go to kindergarten. It is the law. In kindergarten the power struggle begins and personality changes dramatically. I don't want it to happen to me. I am never going to be paste monitor.
I want to live each minute until the last bit of emotion is wrung from it and then twist it a little harder before I move on to the next one; I do not want to try and exert dominance and power over the next guy.
As for college, well I did finish a basic liberal arts degree, but that is as much use as framed page from the Sunday comics...
I have acquaintances with doctorates and masters' who are working in fast food joints and acquaintances with BAs who areen't working at all or who have jobs that make yours look truly respectable...
You have an attitude toward yourself that is negative... but an attitude toward others that is compassionate...
how about turning some of that compassion towards yourself?
What would you say to one of the girls with whom you work if she suddenly described herself as fat and ugly?
Tell me how you would answer her...

The topomax can help you lose the urge to overeat...
but it cannot take away the negative feelings you have about you and those feelings can increase the urge to eat...

so, start looking at you...
right now...
look at you and find two good things about you...
we know you have red hair and
we know you are compassionate...
so tell us two others...

Get some almonds or cashews and eat an ounce or two of them before each meal...
stick to the slow titration of the topomax...
drink plenty of water...
and learn to like yourself....

You have to be okay... you're a friend of mine and I meet the neatest people...
