From Wikipedia: Cocophobia: Fear of Conan O'Brien's Monologue making any sense.. Today on Facebook, I got a message from the Conan O'Brien Presents: Team Coco page: We've got some of the most creative fans around - and we want to harness that awesome talent! Make something awesome that's Conan related, add it to our Flickr pool, and we might just use your art ON AIR! Ch-ch-check it out, buttercup! So, I thought I would do something for this talent arts and craft show. Hey, who knows, it might show up "On-Air." That would be cool if it did, but I have no delusions that it will ever make the show. It did get accepted to the Flickr Pool page. So, that is a start.
Mr. Potato Head: Why Do I Have So Much Inner Hate? In therapy this week, we broached the subject of my self-loathing. Although it's not the correct terminology since the term "self-hatred" or "self-loathing" is more often refereed to by psychologists and psychiatrists who would usually describe people who hate themselves as "persons with low self-esteem." Self-hatred and shame is a large factor in my mental health diagnosis. One I've struggled with as long as I can remember. It's only the second time, during any type of therapy, that I'm focusing on it with a view to changing my own misperception. My Autophobia, is a self-fear that I may one day like myself! I'm happy to say that I've been able to work through a lot of the self-loathing but that is a day-to-day fight.
