Now what I am referring to is Anxiety and Depression. WE ALL need a cure
for this at one time or another in our lives. We all experience it, and must
learn to be proactive in our own afflictions.
It would be so nice to have an ointment to slather and rub on to penetrate that very deep source of the emotional pain, the worry, the fear and the deep distress from within and cure it. As quoted from A+D about the skin "Because it's so delicate, it requires a special understanding to help care for and nurture it". "Care for and nurture it" is what I extracted from this for you. One must be absolutely introspective and take a deep and honest look at themselves from within. What are your symptoms? How are you feeling physically? And mentally? Do you have any knowledge of why you are having anxiety?
Speaking for myself, I am fully aware of WHY I feel so bad when I do.
In my years of hospital experiences, many patients come in and are so despondent
and many do not understand WHY? Often it is a true intrinsic medical condition that they are experiencing. Others, on the flip side of this, are the severely and chronically depressed individuals with extreme extrinsic reasons for their condition. These individuals may be in such a knot and are bound so tightly, they cannot escape the state of HELLth they are in without professional assistance.
Management of anxiety and depression requires some work, and as I stated earlier, a commitment to being proactive for your own health. I can offer you some tips, wish you luck, and send you prayers and good vibes.
1.) Get a good medical physical and tell your physician about the state you are in. There are diagnostic tests that are very basic and can lead to many hidden diagnoses.
2.) Work on proper sleep patterns and getting enough sleep. It may be as simple as adding a natural sleep supplement (Melatonin) or mild prescriptions (Lunesta and several others).
3.) Improve your diet with better nutrition. Try adding some vitamin B complex, vitamin C, and vitamin D. Beware of unproven supplements, although some are very good. Fish oil is a very good mood enhancer, as it is a basis for the building blocks of some neurotransmitters in the brain. Other supplements have been insufficiently tested and may affect you adversely.
4.) Incorporate more exercise into your life, as approved for your condition. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins, triggering a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine.
5.) Start on a path to wellness. Find support, make new friends, find ways to improve your life. Even small changes can make a positive difference. Take small steps initially, but always try to move in a forward direction.
6.) Walk, walk, walk! This is not just for exercise, but for fresh air, sunshine, feeling at one with the universe, and inner peace. Light increases serotonin, which is a neuro- transmitter that influences well being and mood.
7.) Restore good grooming habits. Look the look, talk the talk, walk the walk. Speak with good breath, smile with clean teeth, let the wind flow through your sparkling hair. You will begin to feel better if you adhere to good habits.
8.) Keep busy and incorporate the things you enjoy into your routine. Enjoy something each day, even if it is only for a short time. Watch a sunset, spend time doing a project you love, sit by the lake, enjoy a hot chocolate by the fire.
9.) Do random acts of kindness. I feel great when I go the extra mile for someone in need. The more you give of yourself the more you get....even if it is the mere enjoyment of giving and expecting nothing in return.
10.) Get connections and come out of isolation. Share yourself by attending gatherings, joining a club, playing card games with friends. Isolation leads to depression and the body is known to respond as it were experiencing severe somatic illness.
There are many causes of these problems, thus the many solutions start with you! So go ahead and rub that jar of healing ointment on and begin your journey to good health.
With the recent Moon/Mercury/Venus conjunction, some people might wonder where my photos are. Well, I am in Fairbanks, Alaska and that conjunction was pretty much invisible from here as they all set about the same time as the Sun that night! Besides, sunset now is very late at night and the sky never gets dark before the Sun starts coming up again...Fairbanks is not north of the Arctic Circle so there is never a 24 hour day here, but it still never gets dark.
I wanted to see a sunset while I was up here and wanted to wait until a clear night. I was told by the locals that Murphy Dome was the place to go (about a 30 minute drive from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks campus where I am staying). I needed to get somewhere that had a decent horizon to see the Sun and that seemed to be the closest place.
I got a late start and left about midnight. According to the charts, sunset in Fairbanks was at 12:38am so I thought I was cutting it closer than I like. Of course sunset times assume a flat horizon and you are not standing on a hill...so sunset actually didn't happen until about 1:10am. Amazing what a difference terrain can make!
First, here is Murphy Dome. Yes, there is a dome.
Mosquitos are plentiful this time of year and they bite. Fortunately, clothes are a sufficient deterrent to them here (unlike Everglades mosquitos which bit through denim!) and I only got some bites on my face as the rest of me was covered up pretty well.
Here is a wide shot of where I was.
I zoomed in as the Sun got closer to the cloud tops. There was some distortion at the top limb, but couldn't quite pull off a full green flash up there. You can see some nice distortion of the Sun near the horizon.
Although I didn't get a full mock mirage green flash, the clouds provided a nice backdrop to see a cloud-top green flash. This was visible naked eye as well as photographically.
Every now and then I get a new one that I haven't seen before that makes me think. You might notice there are some small gaps in the clouds. Well, I know you can get a cloud-top green flash, but it seems you can also get them through little holes in the clouds as well. I don't think this is due to scattering since scattering should take out the greens before the reds.
Finally, a post-sunset shot.
I am very happy I got to see a sunset from here. It is very different. The Sun skims the horizon as it sets and is very prolonged compared to the more southerly latitudes I am used to. Unfortunately, with my schedule up here, I don't think I will be able to get out for another really late night to do it again as I am dragging pretty bad today!

We both enjoyed Drew's five days of vacation very much. Yes he did a lot of birding on his vacation too.
Friday we went out birding to Richard Bong State Recreational Area in Kenosha. It was really nice there and we seen a very rare bird while we were there.
Saturday Drew went out birding in the morning then we had a great time with some really great friends. We couldn't ask for better friends than them because they are family to both of us too!
Sunday Drew went out birding then he came home and cooked on his new grill I gave to him for his Birthday and Father's Day. I was a very relaxing day for me.
Monday we went to Harrington Beach State Park to see Drew's parents. They came down to see Drew for his Birthday. We had a lot of fun spending time with them. His mom and my daughter kept making sounds for a Catbird and they had me laughing to were it looked like I was crying. I couldn't ask for a better day for Drew than that one. We sat by the picnic table and you just seen saw many birds land and sit in the trees right by you. Then you go down by the beach and you are by Lake Michigan. We want to go back there to camp ourselves because we just love it there.
Sunday we just stayed home so Drew could relax for work today. I went to Dairy Queen and bought an Ice Cream cake for Drew. He loves ice cream for than cakes. I made him breakfast and dinner yesterday. My daughter also gave him a card, Eagle statue, bird decoration, candy, cookies and a notebook it was in a bird gift bag.
I would say Drew had a good vacation and birthday put together!
Hello, my party animals!How are you?If you didn’t
survive the get together, raise your hand.I had a wonderful time chatting with you.It was scintillating.In reading your comments on the party, I see
that only some of you remember my visit.Apparently, my radiance was so bright that day that it blotted out all
memory of my presence for some of you.I
keep forgetting that I have to dial it down when meeting friends.I so want to impress.Thank you, Ms. Beejay and Mr. Biggie D, for
hosting the event.Perhaps some day we
can meet at the House of Zoltar.
We’re still on the cool side of things.It’s hard to believe that we’re already into
June and it gets chilly outside.I
prefer the cooler temperatures, but I know that many people expect a lot of sun
and heat in their summer.We can never
please all of the people all of the time.
To the right is a picture of two time loser and faux
psychic, Mistress Zelda.I think she’s
been arrested in every major city in North America. She is your reminder to always look for the
Professional Psychic Seal of Approval.Grifters and cons like Mistress Zelda give psychics a bad name.So, go to school, kids, and study real hard,
or you may end up like Mistress Zelda.
Yay!School is out
for summer.Have fun, kids, but keep it
safe, too.Drivers, watch out for the
children.The children don’t always make
the proper choice, but neither do the drivers.Have respect for each other, and have a good summer.
To the left is a screenshot from Tuesday’s JournalTimes.com.Am I the only one who thinks that hyperlink,
with its soap opera treatment of a child sexual assault case, is out of
line?You shouldn’t pimp these stories
to boost circulation, or otherwise.Some
experts are calling on the media to tone down their reporting of criminal acts
in hopes of avoiding copycat crimes.I
really don’t care about the “highlights” of a child sexual assault trial.I resent that they are even referred to as
Thank you for stopping by to check out my blog this week.I’ve often said that the best day of the week
for me is Wednesday, when I read your comments.
A wife, being the romantic sort, sent her husband a text:
"If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me
your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking send me a
sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you!
The husband replied... "I am on the john. Please advise."
When I went through my pictures I found this from last night and I don't remember taking this picture. Who is the one that past out on us first last night? I also love the drawing on the person for passing out and I think I know who this one is!

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
