Magical Genie Will Answer All Questions

While I deal with a new med change tomorrow, and a mild case of writer's block, I will open the blog up to all who read and pop by.

Got any thing you are dying to ask me? Anything you want to know about me, or my fur ball I share my apartment with? Any topic I should write about?

Let me know.....I am looking forward to this!

If you could have any super power, what would you like it to be?

I check your blog daily for updates and am curious about so much about you. Thank you for opening up to questions! Do you have any of your writings prior to treatments available for reading?

Sorry I haven't been around for awhile.

Did you get some relief on your struggling with daily tasks? Do you have any tips? I am in one of those places.

Winston Churchill is credited with saying what you named your blog. Does it inspire you when you read about significant figures in history who struggled with what we struggle with?

Does loving on your cat help you feel better?

I have told you that I have 8 cats, that is a long story and I didn't choose it but one day my husband said "It takes a lot of cats to heal" he has been amazingly flexible and accepting of my past which did include some horrible treatment of cats by my tormentors. Having cats and treating them right is healing for me.

ps I hope for speedy adjustment to new meds for you. I feel your struggle in my core.

If you could choose, what historical figure you would like to meet?

What would a Raymond Carver short story about your current life say?

Hi Susan,

I am sending you a big hug! Hope all goes well with your new meds!

I also hope you can continue to write daily. I was sent a tip on ‘Writer’s block’ recently: ‘Record what you want to say, transcribe it and then edit’. I don’t know if this would help you. I haven’t tried it yet, as I am having a different problem at the moment (not enough time to write or shall I admit my ‘poor time management’?)Any tips?

Anyway, all the best!

Where did you get the inspiration to start blogging? What keeps you going with it?

Radagast said...

If somebody gave you a "monfellou", what would you do with it:

a) play it, because it's a musical instrument;
b) cook and eat it, because it's a vegetable related to the marrow;
c) wear it, because it's a kind of cloak; or
d) call my bluff, because you believe that I've just made the whole thing up?

I just started a blog about depression ( I was planning to write about the problem of evil this weekend. That is, if there is a god how could he let things like illness happen (especially mental illnesses that are so bad they make people want to kill themselves)? Has illness affected the way you look at life? I think everyone confronts this question in some way, whether it's through illness, or hardship, or the loss of a loved one. It's kind of deep and maybe too serious, but I find it really interesting to talk about. Check out my blog this weekend for my thoughts on the matter!

Matthew Isaacson said...

I have one more question. If your life were a movie, what genre would it be and who would you like to play you?

Wendy said...

I know that you have written about suicide, you've lost friends to suicide. You've written about feeling suicidial.
What would you tell someone, how do you move away from that feeling, those plans, those thoughts?

Wonder Woman said...

No question. Just wanted to say I am with you in Spirit. Thanks for the encouraging words you wrote in a response last week.

Remember, God is using you to heal others...which you have done in a magical way.

Much love and warmth,
Wonder Woman

At what point did you decide to become a mental health activist?

And how did Holly get to be so smart?

Love you sweets

Blasé said...

Why yes, I do have a question-

Do you resemble Barbara Eden?

Hi Susan,

My brother commtted suicide last month. IT was today a month ago that we buried him. We used to talk about suicide becasue we have so much of it the family. He had a lot of life blows all at once, and I really thought he was getting better. What I believe is that he had a 'fuck it' day and could not ride it out. Of course no one knew he had purchased 2 guns at Christmas, not even his best friend. He and I talked everyday and he never told me. I read your posts and I know you struggle with this issue, as I do also, and now it feels so close to me like riding the rim of a black hole. Has anyone in your family ever committed suicide ?

susan said...

D- I will answer your question first and separately you should have an answer in the next few hours.

The rest of you will have to wait until tomorrow night or Tuesday morning. I have an outside assignment due by tomorrow and a family commitment as well on Monday, some unexpected dental work yesterday, it's just been way too hectic, but in a good way!

if your soul was pulled out of your body, what would happen to you?

That's a curious question - why do you ask? Anyway, my first thrust would be to say that you'd call yourself Lord Voldemort, and take a 12 year holiday in Albania, talking to snakes and drinking unicorn blood.

chocolate hot cross buns or just ordinary, run of the mill hot cross buns?

Deb said...

Hi Susan

D here, I was wondering if you did answer me and I did not get it. Have you had time to respond ?


susan said...

@Deb, working on it, just not happy with what I have written and want the words to be perfect for you. I hope you understand, it's one of the hardest things I have ever written,
