I think we did a topic similar to this a long time ago but it's an oldie but goodie so let's give it another go-around. Choose 3 words you would use to describe describe yourself....and then (this is the different part) explain why you chose them.

OK, I'll give this a try. I'm pretty uneasy describing myself. Here are my three words...

1) Caring
2) Tentative
3) Perfectionist

Caring because that's what my life has always been centered around...caring about and for others. It's how I'm wired and how my generation of women were raised.

Tentative since each day my life seems unsettled and for me that's very difficult. I don't like change or surprises and with this pain stuff every day is full of both of those.

And a perfectionist is probably my worst asset. No matter how hard I try it's so hard to back off on this and let it go. I know it's silly and it can interfere with life but I'm working on it.

OK, there are my three words and they are totally different than the last time we did this list. What are YOUR 3 words to describe you right now?

impatient-kind of self explainative

controlling (maybe)--I want everything done my way which is the easiest way to get the perfect end result

perfectionist-I don't clean as often as I should but when I do it, I want it perfect.

Friendly. I like people. I can talk to anyone.

Caring. I've always taken care of people. As a little girl I felt responsible for my little sister. As adult it was grandmother, then my parents, and recently an elderly neighbor man, who just passed away.

Happy. I'm at a good place now. Life has been good and it is even better now that I am older.

Disorganized - a lifelong problem. Hubby says it's because I don't know how to prioritize, and he could be right.

Feel responsible for everyone's feelings - not a good thing. I try to referee my family's interactions and they don't like it!

Musical - I can harmonize with anything (not that I have a particularly good voice.)

...fibromyalgia, hearing loss, elevated liver enzymes, skin grafting (back), arthritis, scoliosis, lumbar disc damage, sciatica, IBS, migraines, tachycardia, cancer surgeries (face).......I take Nortriptyline & Clonopin daily, and Darvocet as needed
