What I really need you to know about me is that I have a self-diagnosed split personality disorder. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Virginia Tech so of course I know what I’m talking about! (that’s sarcasm folks) But this split personality disorder is different from what we studied in Abnormal Psychology. I also call it: Decision-Challenged, Fence Straddling Syndrome, and John Kerry disease (or FFC – Flip-Flop Condition). I’m not a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde (though during those rough PMS times DB may strongly disagree with that!). No, it’s more like I can see both sides of just about every situation. Whether it be about politics or religion, finances or communication, books or movies, I waffle, change my mind, say yes, but no. And I can drive myself certifiably insane by merely trying to make a decision about dinner, or shoes, or what kind of oatmeal to buy.
For me life is constantly lived by thinking, “on the other hand…” So, you may find me writing about this oddity in my life from time to time…or maybe not!
