A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Are You Cushioned?

You may have thought I was crazy, after this post you will know that it is true!! I can't believe I'm really doing this, but when I saw the item at the end I thought it was so funny that I had to share it with you. Hopefully, you will have a sense of humor!

Today is Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day!!!  In 1957 two engineers, Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes started out trying to make plastic wallpaper. They did not succeed. What they ended with was the world’s most addicting invention, bubble wrap.

Bubble Wrap Calendar

I found this at http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/ which states, "The Bubble Calender designed by Stephen Turbek provides one popping bubble every day. On each corresponding date there is a bubble in need of popping. It’s the same princliple as writing an “X” across the date square, just more fun.
The Bubble Calenders have a very simple design. With a stark white background and available in both horizontal and vertical versions, the calender certainly isn’t overtly flashy. But no matter. Most of the time it’s the most basic of actions which makes us the happiest.

The poster sized Bubble Calender won’t burst your bubble of anticipation. You’ll wake up every morning knowing you have a fresh piece of bubble wrap to pop. The extra bonus being that you can keep up with the date in the mean time."
Bubble Wrap Keychain

From http://www.thinkgeek.com/, "One of the single greatest gifts (and curses) to anyone who is a little anal retentive is bubble wrap. Sure it's good for protecting packages, but the real joy is popping each and every bubble. You can't let even one survive or your mission as bubble popper has failed. But what happens when you desire the joy of popping bubble wrap but don't have the time to invest in popping a full 60' roll? Welcome to the future, my friends; electronic bubble wrap is here.

Each keychain device has 8 rubbery little "bubble" buttons. They have a pretty close tactile feel to actual bubble wrap. Guess what happens when you push one? That's right, you hear a little pop. In a nutshell, that is the simple beauty of the electronic bubble wrap keychain. But there is one bonus, and here's where the OCD can kick in a little. Every 100th "pop" is not a pop at all, but a silly sound: a boing, a bark, a rude noise, etc. And since you can easily pop (pun intended) the keychain in your pocket, you'll always have bubble wrap when you need it most (you know, like when your boss starts talking).

Here is a short demonstration:

Have some of your own fun!
