Re: im dying and no one cares

You know, what strikes me is one of the first promises to Abraham, was the conversations about counting the stars in the night sky if you can, and that his descendants would be more numerous than that. Having children is a big deal to many people, but there are many ways to 'have children' and one o...

Overheard

I was waiting for a class at a college I attend in the hallway and over heard a conversation by a bunch of kids dissing those with schizophrenia. I just listened. The things they picked on about people like that made me realize how young and foolish they really were. For instance, they went on about...

Re: Best Advice Ever for.....

I don't say the word 'radical' much because it has been associated in my life with negative things. But I hear what you mean. I have a professor in my life who once told me that it is easier to criticize than it is to create. One of the best things he ever said to me. Because of him, I'm progressing...

Re: Random Things that Work?

I'm glad you found something that seems to help feel better. Generally, vitamin C and minerals is a good combination. Just don't overdo as vitamin and minerals do have side effects at higher than recommended dosages.

Re: Light therapy

Yes I have! At first I thought it was all just a put on, but it works! My husband and I bought a light therapy lamp in the proper light spectrum (not all lights are the same) and I'm sooo glad I did. People who need light therapy, need to start using their lamp as a preventative in mid September all...

Odd Memories, strange days.

My daughter said that I don't handle death well. Perhaps not, but then, I didn't realize how many times I'd actually gone through it. And when I became aware of the changes, I freaked out. I think anyone would. That's the blessing for most people is that they are NOT aware of it. Maybe that's why we...

Re: Fear of Vomiting

I think other than the 'yuck' factor, which is pretty obvious, there is a certain feeling of a loss of control of one's bodily functions. When I was in an ED support group, I was surprised to learn that people who preferred purging through vomiting absolutely hated the stomach flu. I was like.. but....

Re: My baby sister and now my daughter have passed away, I hurt

I hope things get better for you. I think you must be a wonderful dad to be grieving over the loss of one of the twins. My philosophy is that souls don't die, but wait to rejoin their loved ones somewhere down the line, ,maybe the twin that died lent extra strength so the other one made it. I don't ...
