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.

Happy Zucchini Day!!!

In August, it seems that at work and other places are free zucchini's everywhere.  Well, that is when they are at their best, but the usually grow more than what one person or one family can consume.  Therefore, this silly day was born.

The following is from WellCat.com:

August 8th is Zucchini Day or Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbors' Porch Day.  It originated due to overzealous planting of zucchini, citizens are asked to drop off baskets of the squash on neighbors’ doorsteps.

Top 20 List for successful sneaking of Zucchini or otherwise ridding yourself of unwanted surplus summer squash

1) Carefully place a dozen or more zucchini in a large, sturdy black plastic trash bag, then add a couple layers of unwanted clothing. Drive to nearest Goodwill or Salvation Army, hand over bag to nearest volunteer. Politely refuse any offered receipt. Leave quickly.

2) Look for out of the way places which have signs posted, "Clean Fill Wanted."

3) Reserve 1/2 of the space in large, upright freezer, gather all available plastic containers & freezer bags. Drink a vat of your favorite caffinated beverage, in preparation for staying up round the clock to puree large quantities of zucchini. This can then be packaged neatly and artistically labeled: "For Zucchini Nut Bread Recipe." These packages can be freely given, along with copies of recipe, to anyone on your Christmas list. [Ed. note: I solemnly promise that I will eventually post this recipe.]

4) Under light of full moon, either stark naked or wearing full army camouflage, carrying a machete or any garden implement, run amuck in your zucchini patch, cutting and slashing. Be sure to thank mother nature for her bounty before and after this cathartic experience.

5) Buy a large roll of freezer paper--the kind that sub shops use to, you know, wrap up their subs & other sandwiches. Then proceed to wrap each zucchini which has managed to grow to a foot or more in length. Next time your child has a fundraiser, send him or her out supplied with these phoney subs. Tell child to drop them off with neighbors or relatives and leave quickly. It's advisable that a responsible adult hover nearby in a get-away car.

6) Gotta run! Time to order my seeds. Rest of top 20 list to follow soon! Send us some of your own ideas meanwhile! Info@wellcat.com.

Thank you for your consistent encouragement and support. I am having difficulty working through my rage and eating disorder. But, otherwise; I am okay and am able to handle working these issues through. Thank you for asking.
