It is so good that we have the internet and everyone can share joy, sorrow, pain or what we had for dinner, breakfast or lunch.
I would like to share that I believe in trying to take care of my own health using my own insight and knowledge and visit a professional only when the situation is more serious. In the following posts I will share the knowledge that I have accumulated during the years for dealing with my and my family and friends’ health and wellbeing issues.
The simplest advice is drink hot/warm water – that helps cleanse your blood and include garlic in your meals where possible – it can work magic. Also, try to avoid antibiotics or other medicine unless it is absolutely necessary and prescribed by a doctor you trust. Sometimes granny’s medicine is better than the one offered by a modern pharmacy. I like garlic – it helps against many ailments and drink several glasses of hot/warm water a day. The water cleanses the body keeping me healthy. Speaking of hot water rosehip tea can help recover from a common cold. I use a tablespoon of dried rosehip for a 250 ml cup of water. I usually boil the water first – drop the rosehip into the boiling water – cut of the heat and cover. After an hour – strain and drink as any other tea.
When I feel depressed, I avoid antidepressants, I don’t go to see a doctor but try to overcome it. That may not work for you but retail therapy or even going to the casino helps me overcome the feeling of helplessness. If I don’t have any money - I play Bridge on the internet – and chat with the other players at the table sharing my issues – I know they cannot help, but just talking about my problems helps me regain peace. Of course, you can talk to you friends but that can have a negative effect both on your peace of mind and your friendship. If I don’t feel like playing Bridge or even connecting to the internet – I make myself a good cup of coffee and look at the sky thinking how beautiful it is. Or listen to the birds singing. Then I can feel how the tension eases and my smile returns to me. What I want in life is peace in my soul and love in my heart. Is that difficult? No, it isn’t. I just have to be strong and overcome all difficulties I may be facing at this moment. How? God will show me the way. I just need to be patient and humble. I fall asleep with the words patience and humility on my mind and the next day I am a new person – healthy, cheerful and ready to deal with all those issues that caused me feeling depressed.
It’s very good when you wake up in the morning to tell someone how much you love him or her... Or to hug someone. When I wake up – the fist thing I do is to tell my family how much I love them. That gives me strength.
This is me! I fall, I get up, but I never give up! And I confess, I bow my head, and say I’m sorry when I have done something wrong because arrogance leads to ignorance.
