Like most people.. long story getting here. Hmmmm.. Small town up bringing ( northern New Brunswick).. big city formative ( Toronto ages 18-28 ) lots of travel (45?? countries) 2 degrees (Arts. Education) 2 diplomas ( Fine Arts/ Theater and Home Reno Tech). Some foreign work.. Austria, Hong Kong, Malaysia.

Kicked the can as an independent writer/ director/ producer of theater/ film/ video for years. But paid the bills for many more years doing construction and home reno work. Many gigs as a teacher (Acting classes, English Second Language) Been an auto worker with Chrysler since 2005.

Trained as an actor out of high school ( class of '79) and generally followed a humanities path after that. I find the world can be overwhelmingly cruel at times but overall.. I like people.

Davekp comments on Jan 20, 2019:
Thank you for your contribution today.. For sure holiday seasons are a real challenge for just about everyone from one angle or another. Glad you made it through relatively unscathed. To me the most valuable notion in your post is ".. everyone seems to be back to their good selves." An important strategy in my recovery is understanding that emotions and situations are transient, That phases of feeling and physical state of being come and go. Remembering that nothing lasts forever can, at the right time, be a motivator to get through a tough period ( sans self medicating w/ drugs and alcohol ). Good luck with your search for a doctor.

Davekp comments on Jan 20, 2019:
Good post. Thanks for sharing. You've had some good advice here. I don't have much to add except that the idea of having an official diagnosis really can open new doors for professional help and broader community support. Take advantage of what's offered around you. And as always.. communicate with one another on how these new developments are affecting your moods and attitudes. Good luck pushing forward with this.
Do you think people can learn to sing? I'm looking at online singing lessons. Nothing to lose right?...

Absolutely nothing to lose. I've never taken on - line classes but joining a community singing group can be a lot of fun too. Good luck.

Who can identify this 90's hottie?
Davekp comments on Jan 19, 2019:
An after thought.. she is in a really bizarre movie called "Skinner" starring Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister fame. Won't spoil the fun here but if you can find it be prepared for a significant wtf ewwww factor.. B movie style.
For those who just can't get hairy enough... funny and ugh.
Davekp comments on Jan 19, 2019:
On reflection of my post I apologize for the word "ugh". It is pejorative and insensitive to the hirsute. Body hair shaming is as hurtful as any other criticism to those that are living with self esteem issues over something they have no ultimate control over. But still a funny thing to see for sale. :)

Davekp comments on Jan 19, 2019:
Absorbing a chain of events and understanding how those events have led to the outcome at hand takes time, effort and frankly the desire to give a damn about something that doesn’t directly impact their lives. Both sympathy and empathy rely on real world experiences that many people haven’t lived through when it comes to mental health issues.

Good advice
Davekp comments on Jan 13, 2019:
It's soooooo hard to avoid. Either being treated as ordinary or treating another as ordinary. After time.things and people do become ordinary. And I would argue that finding that feeling of emotional normalcy..loving the ordinary.. is actually what we are looking for to a degree. Chaos sucks as an alternative. The turn of the screw is the search for the one who more or less shares your ordinary with you and just how exciting and fresh you can make your ordinary.
