    I know the OPD syndrome all too well, but have always thought of it as invasive, like cancerous cells. I am glad to see the idea of it tied up into an OPD bow, as it were. I never saw it as a containable entity like that before. Since it now has a name, a perceptual dimension, it can be contained, and avoided. Thank you.

    Oh, and the PWC *does* sound decadent.

    I left one comment on your website, didn't seem to go through, so I left another and the same thing happened. So, if you see this comment and two others, I am not stalking you!!
    I just wanted to tell you that I came across this quote today and thought of this blog.

    "Once you can laugh at your own weaknesses, you can move forward. Comedy breaks down walls. It opens up people. If you're good, you can fill up those openings with something positive. Maybe... combat some of the ugliness in the world."~ Goldie Hawn

    If we all can do just a wee bit of that, perhaps our own shared pain will not be all for nothing and will lessen another's suffering.

    Take care, and all the best for 2013.

    Kids dont change no matter what, and you should tell them if they dont expect old shriveled up french fries for lunch; they should never leave it behind! Too bad you dont have one of those windows between the back and front seat like they do in some cabs and are able to wind it up and its sound proof....... you could just close them off so you dont hear their gripes! you go girl, tell them, anyone who comes and sits in your car is held responsible for cleaning the back seat, and any mess BEFORE they leave if found will be mailed to them at their expense! Bill them! Then the next time they come for a ride, they will have a clean environment in the back seat! If they dont comply tell them no rides in the future!

    Like you I hate it when someone leaves me a mess in my back seat... there is no second chances with me. You leave me a mess and I DONT give you a second ride or a second chance to screw me! lol Hope they get the message! (Like I am a mean monstrous mother with purpose! No second chances! ) and Like I told my kids, once you leave home dont expect to come back! And it works, so far they have not! Keep to your guns! susana

    Families: so tough. Gotta say, though, the upcoming generation sounds like a hugely different project! Nice to know it's possible to break free from that hereditary psychosis!!

    I wish I could take an eraser & wipe off the past in the dark corridors of my mind. I try to forget but the chalk appears within my mind more often than I care to happen.
    I was baking pies tonight & set the table for tomorrows dinner with family & friends. I felt happy within me. Then I over heard my husband & brother talking about our horrid past I started to shrink inside my mind like the crust of the pie that shrank from the edge of the rim. I felt the over whelming, suffocating of the past starting to over whelm me like the heat of the oven as I opened the door. I pulled out the kitchen chair & found my birthday cake my husband tried to hide from me. I never had a birthday cake when I was growing up he has always bought me one I squealed with delight. I will be 62 on Christmas day,so for now the eraser has wiped the appearing of the chalk within my mind.

    Some day, my sisters will reappear in my life. Or perhaps their children will. Or maybe my cousins will. All I know for certain is I am not yet sure how I will feel or act or what I will say. The relationships I currently deal with are enough.

    Merry Christmas in your own home with your cats! Let it be your day!
