A Psycho...I mean, Psychic Survey

Because I have no idea what a "meme" is other than a stupid survey, I shall continue calling them Stupid Surveys.
This one has been floating around awhile and I had been refusing to do it because the fact that I'm damn weird is inherently obvious. So pretty much everything I do is weird. But I had to stop and ask--is there anything about me that people don't necessarily know? Or something that I can scar their sanity with?For the sake of saving space, if not your mind, I will limit my List 'O' Weirdity to 13.
If you have triskedecophobia, I now say to you...MWAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!
And now, the List 'O' Weirdity!
1. I'm claustrophobic. I don't even like taking elevators. I'm not so bad off that I can't get in an elevator but I'm always very happy when it opens up.
2. I'm afraid of the dark. I have to sleep with a night light. No joke!
3. I'm afraid of large insects. When I was 6 years old I once had a dream that a stink bug was crawling up my leg. The next day, a stink bug crawled up my leg. It really freaked me out! Which leads to...
4. I sometimes have precognitive dreams. When I was 3 years old, I dreamed that my mother was pushing a baby carriage and I knew my baby brother was in the carriage. The next day my mother told me she was having a baby. I said it better be a brother! And, so it was!The night before my father had a stroke I dreamed he was lying with his head in my lap looking upwards but not speaking. I said "Dad, I'm sorry. Please be ok." (We'd had a big argument the day before.)
Most recently (and I'm sure I'll lose at least one of my two readers at this point!) I dreamed that I had several people in the examining room at work and the only part of them I could see was their butts. Realize, I work with the elderly. In the department I'm currently in I don't deal with butts as much. The next day I found out that there's talk of eliminating the night shift in the department I'm currently working in. Which would mean the threat of possibly having to return to Long Term Care and work with a hell of a lot more poo again. (Actually, I don't think I can work in long term care again. I developed a severe curvature in the spine from doing that kind of work for too many years and it could only deteriorate further.)
5. I also sometimes know things about people and situations before anyone has revealed the information. Usually it's useless information but sometimes it turns out to be important!
6. Even when I don't have precognitive dreams I'll have free-floating anxiety before an important negative event that disappears after the event.
7. I am empathic. I can pick up on strong painful feelings even if a person says nothing. I can also pick up on feelings from photographs.
8. I believe that I have the ability to communicate with spirits. I don't usually see spirits, although I have seen one human spirit and I used to see animal spirits when I was young. My great grandfather could see spirits but didn't speak with them.
9. I literally have a GHOST writer working with me on my novel.
10. I have done past life regressions on myself. One allowed me to get rid of my needle phobia.
11. I have Type II Bipolar Disorder. I did not know this until I was 39 years old. Until that time I had been diagnosed as having depression with anxiety. None of the medications they used on me worked, in fact they tended to make me worse. The correct diagnosis is essential!
12. I used to get a real kick out of mooning people! I secretly (well, it's not a secret any more!) hope to moon the entire world before I die. Get your wide angle lenses ready, Folks!
13. I really, truly, genuinely look like Miss Piggy.

Miss Piggy's a likeable character though. Even if she's a little arrogant. I'm like Miss Piggy without the arrogance!
Think: Miss Piggy with a crystal ball.
Actually I'm lousy at scrying. I'm much better with Tarot cards.

And now you are welcome to thank me for making you feel normal!
