NOTICED! Part 2: My Condition

The autobiography of a woman; by Waldorfia

Various names have been given to my condition. Among them are ‘drama queen’ and ‘publicity seeker.’ Each variation of my condition has to do with ‘being seen’ or ‘in the limelight’; like a diva or prima donna of some sort.

Being Noticed; another method

I honestly think that my father’s advice was half correct. I agree that I wished to be seen but never thought of myself as a prima donna. Therefore my public appearances were more subtle but hardly, well, unnoticeable. For instance as a young girl I loved to ride my bicycle up and down the street. My long blond hair would stream behind me; a picturesque scene I enjoyed creating. I wished to be seen by everyone on the block. If I thought that the audience was slim I would loudly shout commands to my young brother. “Watch out for the cars” or “stay close to the curb.” Not that he needed my commands. On the other hand I had a need; to be noticed.
