Well, you're awesome to me. Thanks for this.

Thank you, thats nice of you to say. Smile

I suppose I should do something positive as well, not be such a sourpuss.

RE: The one thing
Living close to my family causes me extreme anxiety, but the consequence of living away from them is that I miss them so bad some nights I cry myself to sleep. I'm fearful that one day the pressure of choosing between anxiety or depression will become too much, and I hate the thought of my mental issues winning.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Now THIS I can relate to, though not quite as extreme. I actually moved across the country so that we could all be together, but now years later, I wish they stayed and I went alone.

How dare you be loving and considerate towards us.

How dare.

RE: The one thing
I'm an alcoholic who has recently entered recovery. I'm sure my friends (and plenty of total strangers) had the first part figured out. The second I don't really quack about in real life, because recovery is about deeds, not words.

My neurotransmitters ain't looking to go all Charlie Sheen on me. They're just trying to help. But they are out of their depth. Headshrinks got some seriously powerful pharmaceutical aids to assist them.

RE: The one thing
Hobbitgirl mentioned having a medal. I have a few trophies, but in my case that sounds more impressive than it really is. Two of them are for chess tournaments, but (a) they are second-place trophies, and (b) I won them in the reserve section of the tournament (where the really good people aren't allowed to play). I also won a trophy in a guitar competition back when I was a kid, although that trophy has long since disappeared.

I have never been better than mediocre at either chess or music. But if the competition is weak enough, you can win trophies.
