Because of life experiences, I'm a VERY open minded person. I have a little bit of low self esteem but not nearly as bad as earlier in my life. I'm not fond of being in large groups for any length of time but would much rather be with one or two people. YES! I am an introvert. I'm mechanicly inclined and have been since a child. I can weld, do wood working and carpentry, plumbing, rebuild engines, build electronics as well as a little masonery. I've never been afraid to tackle anything in life except maybe depression. I've always enjoyed challenges in life and still do. I know if I put the effort into something, I can accomplish it. I've had a social phobia from the time I can remember until about 12 or so years ago. I'm sure it was from low self esteem. I've had major depression for about 15 years that I know of and I suspect I've had some form of depression all my life. I'm adopted and had wonderful parents. As a child, I can remember a lot of fun and happy times but I also remember a lot of lonliness. It makes me wonder if I was born with some depression. If you would like to know more about me, I have written some blogs "memories of my life". It will give you some insight of the real me I suppose. I'm VERY easy to get along with and it takes a LOT to upset me. When I'm really upset, it's not a pretty sight. LOL I think a lot... if something is bothering me, I think about it a lot before I act. I try to think before I say things so as not to upset someone. I hate saying something and it not come out like I really meant and felt.


Listening to waves crashing on a beach. Looking at the stars. Watching people. A nice campfire. Sitting in a hot tub when it's snowing. People that really care, travel. I love music but have days I have a hard time listening to it. Love to see and learn others cultures.

I don't like "control". Don't like controlling people nor controlling governments. Everyone should be free to do as they like as long as they aren't bothering others. Is it too much to ask that we all get along? Don't like abuse of any kind... MANY catagories. Did I mention that I don't like depression and how it affects my life? :)

Hi Bernie, think we're going to have another warm (90s)day here. Usual for Florida this time of year. Each year the heat bothers me a little more while outside. Guess that's called old age. Yuck! I was pretty down yesterday ... a close DT friend wants nothing more to do with me because of my leaving again. I understand, but I was still down. I don't deal well with rejection. However we went out for dinner which helped me get back up. I'm headed for a ladies bible study this morning so will enjoy seeing all the girls. We will then take a summer break after today. Hope your day goes well. I am thankful that you are my understanding friend.
Love, Liz

Glad you dropped by as I usually am. I need to learn to do as you and when I get the urge to be alone, just bail out for a few days until I'm fit company again. Sometime I don't think I know who I really am or how I really feel. For instance when I write a blog admitting how down I am, I usually feel a need to go back and delete. I only find it easy to share my up times. I think you could definitely say I have a personality disorder. You have a good evening and I'll catch you later.
Love, Liz

I'm so proud of you working so steadily on your house. You have great determination and I know it's looking awesome. You probably won't want to sell it when you're done. Bernie, I really hope I'm here to stay. I hate it when I leave. At that moment I'm usually wanting to be totally alone and feeling I'll never feel any differently, but of course that changes and then I'm embarrassed. I really hate that I've lost so many friends along the way.
Love, Liz

I have done many things that I've enjoyed. Some I still do, some I would do again and may some day. I've enjoyed snow mobiling, Jet Ski's, snorkeling as well as skuba diving, parachuting out of a perfectly good airplane, snow skiing and water skiing and still love hunting, fishing and camping as well as anything to do with the outdoors. I enjoy wood working and seeing what I can produce with my own hands.
