Hi Racer,

A scale? In your T's office? That frightens me. I know if I got on it it wouldn't say *sexy* or *fabulous* it would say *complete and utter failure.*

Failure, is of course, my biggest fear. My intense fear that I would fail that anatomy class caused my panic attack and sobbing meltdown. I thought dropping the damn class would make me feel better. No, now I'm beating myself up for failing to finish the class.

I so understand why you need to get that A. I also understand why you are beating yourself up for the possibility that you won't get an A. Which when you look at it makes as little sense as my being so damn afraid of failure that I dropped the anatomy class before I'd even gotten a grade.

Now this makes sense:

<<Besides -- face it, I'm a middle aged woman. There's a much better chance of me getting an A than the 18 year olds in class with me, because I am there voluntarily, I have a sense of how to study, I have life experience that helps me with much of the material, etc. And, as a middle aged woman, my grade really doesn't matter!

Plus, you like math. It's a subject you like studying. Unlike me and anatomy. Other than the film Anatomy of a Murder which of course did not require me to identify muscles and cells. The only cells I can identify are the fat cells on my thighs ROFL.

Bet that scale said you were perfect as you are.

Poet
