Good Homework! katekite

Yeah, the lawnmower thing needs work. I would never have thought to do that, nor would most people. We'd just run it up to lawnmower repair guy, and wait a week. Is it a pat on the back from others that would make you feel more esteemed? Because I can pat. If it's just something inside you, you'll have to work hard. And that's good homework for you.

My homework is to make a list of the things I enjoy doing. Since happiness for me is fleeting, and since I don't feel joy like others, I have to find a bunch of things that are fun to do and plan to work them in--as relates to life here and vacation where ever.

Next week I am taking a personality test to determine whether I have a chemical flaw in my brain or a personality problem that has led to a mood disorder. Isn't that a kick in the pants?

Couldn't decide what to say to my therapist yesterday, so I told him I've been unable to feel cheerful for my entire life, that I have two pictures of me that I point to and say, "I was happy here." Really, I can think of two times that I was truly happy. So now I have a mood disorder? Hmph.

Anyway, I've been assigned the "do something fun" homework before, and it worked briefly. But now I have to make the list.

Congrats on our good fortunes, Kate.
