Thanks, Mair. I am in desperate need of a literary agent... What's your percentage of the cut on the advance from my novel???

Seriously, I do appreciate your wonderfully supportive messages - you've been so lovely to me in the past... I do have the goal that I'd like to write full-time, but no one will pay me to do that yet...

This week, I have an assignment to write about anger from my pdoc (the subject of last week's group therp session). I'll perhaps share with you and others? If I look at it as an 'assignment' with a due date, I can generally produce the words on paper. I also have some due dates for the ADA trial stuff that I mentioned. And yet I have been reading PB all day (my daughter is sick, we're in our jammies today).

But my drugs make me so un-motivated, I think. I seem to remember that I felt that way before drugs, but hey, that's a long time ago. Or else I have no self-discipline, but that seems like a harsh self-judgement... I wonder. The therapist says motivation is a type of discipline, and that discipline comes from the root word meaning 'disciple.' As in: being a disciple to oneself, taking care of oneself, etc.

BTW, I have also joined a women's reading group, and a women's artist group which gets together and draws and paints once a month. So I am trying to widen the circle of friends, which may help me feel connected again... At least it's a start...

So thanks again, Mair, for the support and friendliness, it's great to hear from you...


> I'm pleased that you're doing some good things for yourself and successfully dealing with some legitimate stressors, but your post highlights for me why I miss having you around more as much as I do (alot). I pretty much agree with everything you said and feel that you said it better than anyone else could.
