Yesterday, I saw a PBS show about digestion that had an interesting bit about extraverts and neurotics response to pain in the digestive system.  The neurotics responded by reducing blood pressure and heart rate which probably has a calming affect, while the opposite happened to extroverts.  The video talks about this at about minute 35:  http://video.pbs.org/video/2364996213

They never mentioned Introverts, but it sounds like they were saying that introverts are neurotics.  Comments?

Hi Steph, I've been living and working in Duluth, MN for the last 5 months so haven't had contact with many people. Weather sucks and I really miss Arizona.

How is everyone?

It's been sunny here today - getting very cold at night.

Yesterday was so windy. Some people got some roof damage because of the high winds.

Thank you very much Steph!

Although I do enjoy socialising, I have throughout my life found that nothing beats time on my own to think, reflect and relax.  I always thought that made me a bit weird, and part of the reason I went through depression was due to guilt for wanting to be alone.  I read a useful quote that said something along the lines of "Life is all about balance - between working and playing; between spending time with others and spending time alone".  It's good to be an introvert - to have enough confidence in yourself to be completely happy with nothing but your own company. 

Monologue over! :)
