I love depression glass, and help people on ebay to identify the patterns and manufacturers of the pieces they list. I collect sets of sugar bowls and creamers; and also candy jars that catch my eye for a reasonable price.
My husband and I eloped three months after our first date and have been married 33 years. We have two children, a daughter (29) and son (23), both adults who have their own homes. We also have a fiesty 5-pound, toy poodle.
I am currently not working due to health concerns, but I am a psychologist specialized with "diagnosing" and educational planning for clients ages 2 -21. I loved my job, all of it -- especially the kids, families, and teachers. I was injured when I was hit by a farm truck on my way to work a few years ago, and had to changed jobs to allow me less time on the road and the computer. I served as coordinator services for students with disabilities at the local university where my husband is still employed as a librarian. The experiences I shared with these remarkable students were inspirational, and I am still friends with several who graduated, most of them with honors. A few years later, I moved over the the business school at the same university and taught statistics as adjunct facutly for five years. Teaching was always passion for me. I actually went to college to become a math teachers, and di have the opportunity to teach at a community college for four years. In the business school I also enjoyed teaching online classes.
I was in treatment for depression throughout most of my work experience and did well, very well with an antidepressant. Since I have had to come home, my mood has continue to slip further down, down, down. I have just started working with a therapist to find ways to be in more social settings and to find a way to see myself as "retired" since the lung disease is getting worse. I mean, who am I, if I am not working? And I feel like a loser since I am not helping anyone. These are the things I am working on as well. She is quite helpful, but I find myself falling back into old patterns of staying home for weeks and not answering the phone. I need to be stronger, and I know that God is with me in every way throughout this journey.
I am not completely boring -- I am a sports maniac. Hey, I even love to watch golf to provide some perspective on
"maniac." The Fall is amazing with we have football and baseball and hockey and basketball (and golf). My husband doesn't realize how lucky he is that I like to watch the games. LOL! Please feel free to message me anytime.
