But all I see is my normal, everyday boring life...Driving to work is really me sitting in a chair, with my hands in the air and my feet pressing imaginary pedals...and everytime I tell someone about This Theory, the doctors get all excited, cause maybe I'm having a breakthrough or something, but I'm not cause I WANT to stay in this imaginary world of mine...(they don't think I'm having a breakthrough now, cause they can't see what I'm typing...they only see my hands moving like Im typing. But maybe they put a keyboard under my hands so that what I'm typing shows up on the screen in the doctors office...and right now nurses are running to check and see if I'm finally coming out of this phsychosis(sp?) and maybe my mom and dad are standing there with tears in their eyes, cause they think their little girl is finally gonna get better and....)

Like when I'm looking into a mirror and grooming; I can see myself but they would only see me "blindly" doing this activity. The part that is a little over the edge is when I'm (trying to be fairly tactful about it) evacuating my bladder, and I'm really just standing in a corner in the cushy, white room.

Nor do I feel myself bumping into the walls of my room which I'm sure would happen frequently.

Or maybe THEY have set up a stairmaster for you :)

Could this be the quote?


And here I take the unfeigned oath,
Never to marry with her though she would entreat:
Fie on her! see, how beastly she doth court him!


Would all the world but he had quite forsworn!
For me, that I may surely keep mine oath,
I will be married to a wealthy widow,
Ere three days pass, which hath as long loved me
As I have loved this proud disdainful haggard.
And so farewell, Signior Lucentio.
Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks,
Shall win my love: and so I take my leave,
In resolution as I swore before.


I love that "Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks Shall win my love" Line...It's great...
