Introducing me

I have read most of the posts in AdultChild from the beginning to Jan 10, 2006. I will continue reading til I reach the most recent post.

1.Do you do anything creative like art,poetry,singing,writing, playing music,dancing or other? I like to sing a bit and dance and cook and decorate a bit. In the past I have wrote (many types), knitted, done crochet, sewn and played keyboard.

2.Were you abused as a child or teen? Yes, both.

3.Do you collect dolls or toys? I don't collect but I do have some childlike things. I have 1 teddy bear named??? Jeez, I can't remember! A Taco Bell Dog which says "Happy New Years, Amigos" when squeezed. Can't remember anything else.

4.At what age did you start dating? 18.

5.Do you have any physical conditions?
Like migraines,ibs,arthritis,fybromialga etc? Body pain, endometriosis. I still have more symptoms I need to get checked out.

6.Do you suffer from depression? Yes.

7.Do you suffer from anxiety? Yes.

8.Do you suffer from PTSD or other? Yes.

9.Are you shy? Most of the time when I am around others but I'm good at hiding it sometimes.

10.Are you on any anti-depressants or anti anxiety medication or any other psychotroptic meds for psychiatric reasons? I take paxil (20 mg, anti-depressant). I also take birth control as hormone therapy for my endometriosis.

11.Do you have a hopeful future outlook? Right now I do. I usually do.

12.Do you take life one day at a time or plan ahead for the future? Both but more often take it one day at a time.

13.Do you trust easily or is it very hard for you to trust? My behaviour usually makes people think I trust easily but if I open up to them I let them know I am scared, very scared, inside.

14.Do you like art? If so what are your favorite kinds? Yes, but I hardly let myself enjoy it. I like anything that I find beautifull.

15.What kind of music do you listen to usually? Hindi language music.

16.Name 3 favorite movies. Dil Se = From The Heart. Hindi movie.
To me a favorite would be one that I would see again and I can't think of any other one.

17.Why did you join this community? I'd like to join because I have been aware of the inner child concept for a long time. This year my little girl has had enough of being ignored from me!!! I'd like to give her a voice in this community. She will express herself and I will type for her. Also I (my adult self) would like to express myself in here too.

If anyone has questions feel free to ask.

Does anyone live in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia in Canada? I do.

My inner child's name starts with S. My name starts with a T.
