Some techniques and thoughts that help me: First, breathe.
Second, do yoga.
Third, get massages.
Fourth, go for walks.
Fifth, rest when you can.
Sixth, remember you are not alone and work is being done to turn this situation around.
Seventh, share what you are going through and ask for help.
Do something fun every day.
Watch John Stewart and the Colbert Report.
And, what is that saying?
The best revenge is success.
Make your world work for you. #eviction #trauma #H
1. 92% of the water withdrawal from this aquifer is for food for hogs. In some areas the aquifer is running low. If it were completely drained it would take 6000 years to refill. 95% of Americans’ fresh water exists underground. Ground water is also the continent’s greatest reservoir of solar energy, as it remains at a constant of 53 degrees Farenheit, according to Dr. Jay Lehr, groundwater hydrologist and executive director of National Water Well Association. 2.

Palliative care seeks to alleviate pain without actually curing it. Hospice care addresses not only physical pain, but emotional, social and spiritual pain, not just of the patient, but also of the surrounding family. If I were dying with friends and family far away, or if they were nearby but unable to care for me, I would want hospice and/or home health care. I would be in a familiar environment. Home health care workers would keep up with housekeeping and my basic clean
Today exericse or Swiss balls are everywhere. When I worked at Wellness Professionals in Murrieta, our whole open space was filled with balls, almost like walking through a field of mushrooms. Pacific Distributing sold them (and still does) right off the floor sometimes. My favorite stretch is arching back over them to open the chest and stretch the upper back. I like to start classes with a quiet time to allow students to lie on their backs, resting on two tennis balls,
Going back two years, I had a gall bladder attack one morning while I was driving to my new doctor’s appointment, conveniently scheduled it seemed. Her office, however, had failed to call me to tell me my doctor was unavailable. So I went to the local hospital ER, spent the day in pain, but not so severe I couldn’t breath into it to make it better. I managed to drive home to check on my daughter and pets and then drive back, during the time I was supposed to sit there and wai
Michele Broad, a certified OB-GYN adult nurse practiitoner and owner of Women’s Health and Wellness in Murrieta, says: I have never written a new prescription for Premarin. Some of my patients on it have experienced severe leg cramps, weight gain and breast tenderness.” Amy Allina, program director for National Women’s Health Network, a non-profit education and advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., says, “Premarin is not simply a harmless aid for getting through menopau
One of the organizers for a local California chapter of Health Care for All said several years ago, “We are promoting SB840 as the solution to California’s skyrocketing health costs crisis. It will be better to pay a state ‘health tax’ than a private ‘health insurance premium.’ When we pay a premium to an insurance company a large portion of it, 20-30% goes to administration, shareholder dividends, executive reimbursements and marketing. Only 70-80% is spent on health car
Thinking back to my first experiences with health insurance as a welfare recipient in West Philadelphia in 1971 and more recently as a single working mother with a “pre-existing condition,” I have wondered, how do people afford health insurance? In an effort to better understand what insurance is all about, I looked up “insure” in Webster’s Dictionary. The three synonyms are ensure, assure and secure. The definition: “to make an outcome clear.” Unfortunately for myself and
