    Are you a blood donor? No, too many meds.  Do you know your blood type?  O+
     Drinkers - what is your favorite kind of whiskey?  I'm generally a brandy/cognac sort of person, but will drink any whisky except Scotch.
     What feeling do you have the most difficulty controlling?  Depression/Despair.
     What feeling do you have the most difficulty expressing?  Anger.  I was always taught that good girls don't show it.  So I internalize it. When it finally does come out, it's poisonous.
     Do you enjoy talking on the phone?  Depends on whom I'm talking to.

    •  Internalizing anger (0+ / 0-)

      is bad for you, I think. I think that is how Californians invented road rage. The umpteenth time someone cuts them off, bang! Whereas my east coast friends get it all out right away by yelling, which provides an outlet.

      All anger is bad for you, though. Living in a state of perpetual anger is hard on all body systems. I've learned to let a lot of it go.

      Someone feeling wronged is like someone feeling thirsty. Don’t tell them they aren’t. Sit with them and have a drink. - Lemony Snicket

        that depression is anger turned inward.  I would say that is probably true.
