An experiment was done by a famous neurosurgeon 50 years ago,he performed brain surgery and stimulated a certain area of the brain(the patient was awake) and the hand moved.He asked the patient what happened,he said I don't know you did something and my hand moved.So far so good.Then he ordered him to resist the movement and move the hand in a different direction.Again he stimulated the same area of the brain but the patient resisted and he successfully moved his hand in another direction!Now what does that mean?There is a soul inside us,the choice maker,the commander which gives command through the brain.

30 minutes of gentle exercise,walking,hearing the sounds of the nature,the birds and the ocean can put your mind at ease.When we're dreaming we think it's real and nobody can convince us it's not,this waking state is another dream,and when we die,we look at our lives and say ah haa how interesting that was,I made it all up!We are powerful spiritual beings as Dannion Brinkley says,we have the power to literally dictate to our minds and bodies what to do and what not.

Stress can come from many sources - emotional,physical and even what we put into our mouths.Sugar,Caffeine,rocessed foods,tooth infection,etc..your body is so busy defending you against these threats that there is no time for it to focus on healing,it's that simple and really there is nothing more to it.This inner desire to heal must come first.Doctors see two patients with same set of symptoms,give them same meds but the outcome differs greatly,i.e,one gets better and the other not.Something must have happened in the mind/body connection which enabled him to heal!

ya I know you're Jennifer ------- how many times do I have to hear that?The answering machine and your phone battery always dies on me,do I suck energy or what??Our bodies renews itself every seven years,old cells die,the skeletal system is replaced but if we get new set of organs every 7 years or so then why do the disease process continues?Because the disease shows up first in our psychic or subtle bodies and then imprints on the physical.

The flight or fight response helped us survive but its not benefeting the modern man,excessive stress somehow has put the switch in "on" position,it weakens your immune system,cells don't repair,not getting enough sleep?Ok no growth hormones,the body is in a downwards spiral,what's more important?you or that damn floor?Only cells that do not die are cancer cells,we have cellular death programmed into our genes,and a loss,trauma or a sudden shock could take us down that path...the path of self destruction,pain and despair.The brain does it all so easily.It does what we tell it to do.We are the choice maker.We can literally talk to the body into healing itself.

You deserve a big bear hug! Thanks for the Sweetest note. I truly appreciate those beautiful words! Women can fill a void with a few words that the world could not accomplish in a life time. How special we are to each other when we decide to give!

You're all good moms . Women are great ! Always think highly of yourselves . Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind . You'll be happier being the woman that you are , rather than pretending to be somebody else . Open your eyes to the marvels you hold within you and how beautiful you really are !

Thank you for everything! Hi Jen, thank you so much for the notes.  It's so nice to hear that someone cares.  You are correct, I can't take Advil.   I took so much of it I got ulcers and had to stop completely.  I do have Voltaren gel, which I use for my knees, it does help some.  My back is a mess, the doctor told me it's enough arthritis for 4 people! The Sjogren's is terrible--the dry mouth is driving me crazy.  I'll try the drink you mentioned, and I never tried Arnica cream--I'm going to get it.  How are you and are you still with the boyfriend/fiance?  I hope things got either got better or you got rid of him!  I also hope you are dealing better about your Mom's death.  I'm sure you think of her every day, but it does get easier!   Cindy

You give me WAY TOO MUCH CREDIT!  I wish I could say I was one of the best moms but I don't think I am even close!  I think what you are doing is right.  Your son has to come first.  I know how hard it is to go to school, either online or whatever, and take care of a child.  They require so much attention.  I take many courses on-line as a teacher to get extra credits for salary increases.  I know that it is time that I have to take away from Celia.  Thank goodness my husband is a hands-on dad...if not, I wouldn't be able to do it either.  How are things going with the fiance?  Is he treating you with any more respect???  I sure hope so because you deserve it!

(part 2) It seems if the pain was "excruciating" as she says, she wouldn't be so cheerful. And actually, my Dad passed away last Fall. They never got along but my Mom has never lived alone so I'm sure that adds to her fears and need for attention. So sad.  A big hug to you. irene

Thank you. I don't know what will help my Mom. The doc said he can't tell yet if it's an old fx or a new fx. And the needle treatment may not be for her. She'll have to wait till it heals. She got a bit angry about that. And now she's on a new pain med (the 4th). She says she's in pain but laughs and talks a lot. Hmm.  irene (part 1)

Something kind of funny. My husband was trying to dig up some information on home care for my Mom, the kind you mentioned. Then we were trying to find  way to suggest it to her. Yesterday she got something in mail about home care that is paid for by Medicare. She can send in a card to get the brochure for more information. Perfect opening to talk to her about it. She seemed interested and we sent in the card. This way it's just something she got in the mail, not us trying to pawn her off on a stranger. Whew. It's hard because on the one hand she apologizes for being such a "nuisance" as she puts it. But then has a list a mile long of things she wants us to do for her. We'll do what we can. Thank you so much for your encouragement. You're a dear.   irene

Thank you for your notes. I am trying to deal with losing my mom the best i can and am taking care of myself, keeping busy, and talking with my family and friends a lot. and then today my brother was seriously injured at work. He will be ok but it was very scary the thought of going through it again since my mom had a work related injury that she was unable to overcome.

Hi Jen,
Where is Canbria CA? I have been to San Fran, Monterey, Carmel and am coming out this summer to see my son,who lives near Anaheim. I hope the weather will be nice.
Where did your fiance come to in Florida? Hooters is very popular, lol. and the men always say "but the wings are so good" lol, like right, even if they were bad, men would still go to Hooters.
Wedding plans???
Hugs,
Colleen

Hi Jen,
Thanks for the note. No, I haven't had those tests done yet. I see my gyn next week. I have had alot of health issues in the past couple of years. I started thinking I had something wrong gyn wise and that is how I got on the forum. Since, then I have had two surgeries, other health issues including gastro and I was recently diagnosed with cardiac spasms. So, I have had alot going on. I also got married and went on his insurance, so lots of doctor changes.  I will talk to my new gyn next week and see what can be done.
Congrats on being the leader for the other forum. I am sure you will do an excellent job.
How are you feeling?
Hugs,
Colleen

Oh please, don't go to all that work. We're looking into outside support for my Mom. Just to be ready when the time comes. My husband is signed up to take the courses for hospice/palliative care in October. He was planning to volunteer with our local hospice facilities but I'm sure the training will help with my Mom too. She's just not too open to change yet. She's not coping well on her own but feisty enough to fight changes. Got her phone line fixed. Now she's just cranky because she's out of cigarettes. We're going over tomorrow, just can't justify doing a drive over to buy cigs for her. She's trying to quit anyway. We'll get through this. Many families go through this very thing.

Sorry for the part 2. There's a limit on these notes. My hubby and I think she'd do better at assisted living. But she's afraid of being raped. I only have power of atty. if 2 doctors state that she's no longer able to care for herself. I'm not anxious to take away her autonomy and freedom but seeing her sit alone in the dark house day after day is not healthy either. We're trying to get her involved in something but she won't do it. Even her painting, she says she wants to paint again but has to get the house in order. I say that's not important. Just let all the paperwork and junk sit. Enjoy her time. We'll take care of the clutter another day. // True, food for squirrels should be natural. But they do have a sweet tooth, apple bits, grapes are fine.

Thank you for the note. My Mom fell again (3rd time in 2 1/2 months). It's a strange situation because she never gets hurt - bruises, bumps, nothing. So I keep thinking it might be exaggerated for attention. I insisted she go to the doctor this time. Waiting for results. Mostly her emotions and memory are going. We took her to the doctor on Thurs, will go again on Mon. Went to her place Friday, took her some food (she's not eating) and visited because she sounded terrible on the phone. Sat. her phone went out and she thought we were just tired of her and avoiding her. When we called her, the phone worked but we called the phone co. They said there is a short and they'll be out today. Just one thing after another. So sad.  (to be continued)
