Until my Tomatis therapy changed my life, Mother used to spend an hour after school each day on my spelling.

I still detest the physical act of putting pen or pencil to paper.  

Since it looked like a lifeline, I took all the typing lessons any school had to offer.

Surely, you mean grammar school.  

Math, science and an artist?  That's me, too!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

sometimes I burst out laughing in inappropriate times (and have gotten myself some odd looks) because there was something legitimately funny that nobody else got!


Me too! I'm easily amused anyway. They are just jealous that you are having a good time.

Quoted from paul clucas
Yes Easy E, I get restless energy from too much inactivity.

When I was a highly inactive teenager in London, I used to force myself to briskly walk through the streets for hours after midnight.  Given my poor diet at that time, it seemed to be a lifeline of a kind.  I would push myself to take a quick breath with each step; two in and two out. I could literally walk for miles and feel an exhilarated kind of exhaustion - but only when I stopped.  It was essentially an aerobic form of walking.  As I performed this unusual exercise I revelled in the feeling of freedom, my bad mood was alleviated, and I seemed to be in some sort meditative trance.If this was not the result of science, it would have to be called prophetic!

I am very grateful to have this deep understanding of myself.  



Um, wow! I did this when I was living in England too. I wasn't in london though. I was 30 mins trainride outside of London - SW. That was in my early 20's. I used to go for walks and do aerobic breathing too. My diet was bad while I lived there too. The fresh veg and fruit was rather expensive and the packaged food were the cheapest. At least here at home it's way easier to get fresh fruit and veg for cheaper year round... and in bulk! lol

Being an Explorer... which I am more than convinced that my Swami will say I'm at least 40% or more Explorer, is really starting to help me figure out what really is wrong with me... or should I say... just how unique and beautifully my very own combination of genetic makings.



O positive baby boy.

I don't have any learning disabilities I just didn't like the structure of how the school system worked. I loathed homework so I rarely did it. To me there was no point in about 80% of the things they taught and the majority was about babysitting and wasting my time. Of course now I've probably offended anyone who is a teacher. But this is my personal opinion on how they are "teaching" our children. Yes there are amazing teacher but I strongly believe that the model they use to teach children really isn't as good as it could be. We need a new system.
Of course when it comes to something that I'm interested in I can almost be a on a genius kind of level with it. When I went to college I was at the top of my class whereas in HS I was always a middle of the road student. In college I became a Massage Therapist and Holistic Pratitioner... needless to say I find health/wellness and the human body to be very very fascinating! I've even created my own type of massage therapy techniques that I teach to other therapist that I've ended up mentoring over the years.
And this isn't me being cocky... I'm just very self-assured in my abilities when it comes to this one area.

As for inappropriate humor? lol That is what mine is all the time. I actually can't go to funerals because I seem to have an a inability to not find it funny. *chuckles thinking about it* Ya, it's sad... but really I believe we will see the person again and why oh why do we seem to think that laughter at a funeral is wrong? It's just another kind of emotional release. lol I can go from laughing to crying... it's all just emotion.
I do really find that my humor is rather dark, sometimes punny, sometimes just stupid... but to me life is like a jar of peanut butter... it's full of nuts. And I'm one of them!

re being "nuts" You are definitely amongst friends here As I said on the where's pc thread, I have "met"/acquired some great friends through their sense of humour & the great thing about having that in common, is that it transcends most age barriers
On a slight tangent...it certainly keeps a marriage alive too - I clicked with my man through our unique sense of humour & after more than 30 yrs together, there isn't a day goes by that we are not in stitches together... It's impossible to stay cross with someone who has that ability

Absolutely love this christa!! I say it to ppl all the time...especially older widow/ers that come into work...
You know re laughing at funerals - my Dad's was a tearful depressing time, only saved by time with my kid brother afterward, when he & I & our partners had an impromptu "wake" remembering all the slightly humorous times (though not whilst going through them) of Dad rescuing him from teenage scrapes...& similar stories...It was the best & tremendously therapy I think the Irish (among others) have it right - life should be celebrated as well as death

Christaalyssa,
I agree with so much of what you said above.  I look back and realise the teaching system was geared to kids who can learn through hearing, and most of us learn better when other senses are employed, visual/hands on etc. I found a good school for my children where more of the other senses were used for teaching and what a difference.

I also think some of us, myself especially, are late bloomers, and the education system doesn't recognise that reality.  I did far better after age 15.
Looking back I think I might also have had a little "brain fog" and improving my health makes me see the brain works better when the right foods are taken in.
Also on the not always appropriate humor I can identify with that, often odd things will strike me as funny,  and perhaps it is how we see things?
I type as a teacher when I put secretor in swami, but my gums bleed a little when I clean my teeth and I read somewhere on this forum that could make you a secretor. If I change it to non-secretor then I'm an explorer.  Luckily most of the foods that are recommended overlap.

Is it true that when if sometimes your gums bleed when you brush, you could be a secretor?  Do you know where you saw that?

I have always been bored with math. Algebra wasn't horrible but advanced geometry was difficult. I was so much happier studying humanities, languages, history and geology. I gladly stayed up very late to practice speeches for my Spanish and French classes but if I ran into a snag with math I would just stop/avoid. History just took me to another place and time and I loved it!
I am definitely a visual/tactile learner. My friends laugh at my animated speech...French and Italians use their hands to talk! I am auditory challenged! My family says I don't pay attention...I blame it on my (so typical) bloodtype!
