These last few years have seen me become the poster child for, 'What happens when you don't look after yourself'. I'm no Martyr, it's not an intentional thing I do. I simply put it down to 'Mum Syndrome'. Everyone else in the family gets organised and cared for first, and mum brings up the rear. You see, just yesterday I was sitting across the desk from my naturopath (yes, I have one...), I was telling him about what's been going down, and how I've been feeling, and he says,
"Yep, I see this all the time. You are suffering from 'Mum Syndrome'"

So much of your childhood shapes who you become as an adult, both the good and the bad. I suppose that goes without saying, but I bet if you stop and really have a think about it, you can almost pinpoint why you display certain characteristics from time to time.
Much of my childhood revolved around communication. My family is well known for having the ability to carry a conversation. I think the phrase 'Can talk under water with a mouth full of marbles' comes to mind. We're storytellers. I can almost tell my dad's stories about his own childhood word for word, I've heard them that many times. It didn't matter. I loved hearing them. The stories of the past were so fascinating to me, imagining my dad as a child, or hearing my grandmother tell stories of her father, apparently the man could sell ice to Eskimos, and my grandfather telling jokes, or reciting poetry. It's easy to see where my love of language comes from. I love writing, concocting tales, or spinning my every thought and feeling into words on my blog.
