Prison Bound

I am wondering if anyone else in the group are interested in the following current stats.

Thanks, Debbie

Prison Bound

A brain injury and seizures now prevent me from carrying a gun.

 

This brain injury has taught me about the powerful emotion rage,

I am sharing facts that I hope will keep you out of a…

I have a Son and Daughter that don't even contact me....Any ideas why?

Well, here's my story on this.....I have a daughter who is 29 years old and a son who is 31.  When I had my accident I went into a 3-month coma, and my daughter did show up after about 7-9 years I had not seen her....and she was there when I awoke from my coma.....I was spaced out though.....but, it was her......I was sent to a nursing home after I awoke from my coma....and she was with me....We did not really talk though, as I was coming out of my 3 month coma....everything seemed like a… Continue

Irrational Fear...Sometimes they get to me too!



"IRRATIONAL FEAR"



Lord, help me dismiss irrational fears. Guide me as I sort through my anxieties. Help me put aside those events of the past that can't be changed to ignore those unlikely to occur, and to eliminate those that are out of my control. Give me the emotional soundness to bear those trials that are within my power to influence. Help me to overcome my…

How "Social" are You?

       Last week, I received a second e-mail from my daughter’s teacher that she is being too social in class.  Too social?  What does that look like?  According to the teacher, my daughter sometimes doesn’t pay attention in class because she is being social with her classmates.  She makes new friends no matter where the teacher moves her in the classroom seating arrangement.  While many times this is good, it could lead…

Can You Hear Me Now and Smell That, Too?

     Last month, I talked about how routines can be bad for you.  Continuing on with the subject of Neurobics, can you name the two senses that we use most (Jeopardy theme music enters here)?  That’s right ~ the senses that we use most are vision and hearing.  If you close your eyes and try to navigate through a room, what do you find?  You sense of touch becomes most important.  Even though you many have been in this room a million times, not being able to see now…

Routines Can Be Bad for You?

 

    What?  How can a routine being bad for you?   I mean, with routines, I get more done in the day,  know what to expect, experience less stress, and I’m comfortable with knowing what the outcome is likely to be when I’m done.  But is this “healthy”?  In some respects, yes, since it may produce less stress and anxiety.  But on the other hand, having…

Sunny Side Up

One of the habits that my doctor started for me is to eat eggs Sunnyside up in the morning. I eat the vegetarian, grain fed, free-range, Omega-3, brown eggs. The doctor told me that the birds digest the omega threes and then pass them on to me in the eggs in a form that is easily accepted by the body. Leaving the yoke liquid is key because cooking it destroys the nutrients and proteins I am trying to gain. Then my body uses those omega threes to coat and insolate my nerve cells allowing for…
