Hi Ashley,
I'm afraid I'm really judging others.  I 'll try to give that up - namely, the feeling that a particular stage of life is "better" than another....

I wonder if others feel discouraged like I do.  It's bad enough having something with a social stigma.  Now I find I have to take these small steps, so small they seem insignificant.
 
An example is trying to cook.  I can't take the "college" level course, since I'm so wired, and things just move much faster than I can barely keep up.  On the other hand I can't set a goal too high, since then I'll be turned off.
 
All I'm trying to do is feel more comfortable in the kitchen...I just wish I could be at a higher level, before I'm too old...it feels demeaning somehow, to admit that I'm taking baby steps...
