    I go jogging...nothing can cure a case of the blues better then a 5 mile scamper thru some beautiful countryside. It can make a 40 year old man feel 20 again.
    If yer not quite up to it, quit smoking and start walking.
    Oh ya and eat right and make sure you get your vitamins.

    Doing something nice for someone else is a good treatment for the blues as well.

    Try replacing all the hate in your heart with love and see if that helps. And yes that includes loving the people that are different from you also. Otherwise a 40 year old man may not make it to see 50. Hate and depression can and will kill you.

    A man finds himself locked in a freezer. He is convinced he will die and begins writing letters. His letters end with a final passage saying that he cannot write anymore because his fingers are starting to freeze. when they find him dead, not only do they discover the letters but they discover that the freezer's temperature never dropped below 50 degrees.

    True Story.

    The mind is a powerful tool.

    Well there's the problem, the poor guy was in a metal box at 50 degrees and died of heat stroke.

    Heat stroke does not cause you to believe your fingers are freezing... The man truly believed in his mind that he was freezing to death. Which eventually after he told himself he was he actually did freeze to death.

    You could still very easily die of hypothermia being exposed to 50 degrees for an extended period of time. Especially if you were wet.

    Yup, it doesn't even have to be close to freezing for a person to die of hypothermia...once the body core temp drops below a certain level, that is pretty much it, if they aren't treated immediately.

    So, moral of the story:
    Don't urinate in your pants when locked in a meat cooler.

    I started with this 3 years ago, lost 60 lbs of fat, added weight training in every day and look 10 times better and feel like I am super-charged all the time, at least compared to how I used to feel

    I used to get tired all the time, feel groggy in the mornings, lose my breath climbing the stairs...

    Now I can go go go all day till late night and never run out of steam.

    It clears the mind and trains the body - humans are not evolved to sit down for hours and hours eating potatoes and bread. We are evolved to run like hell after animals just to get some meat to eat. When you act against your nature, you do harm to yourself.

    My sympathies as well. *been there done it myself lost my dad, suddenly, on Father's Day* some years ago. :(

    It never gets easier persay cuz, we miss them always once they are gone from our lives.

    The only thing that changes, after some or lots, of passing time, is that we will find that we can smile or laugh, when something sets off a flood of fond memories of our lost parent of good times/memories we shared with them. And then it feels like they really are still with us, because in reality, they are always a part of us, even long after they have departed.

    As an aging parent myself, I just gave my father's US ARMY vet flag folded in a triangle, that was draped over my dad's coffin in 94, to our first born daughter, in the US NAVY. She was really worried that once her mom died, her grandpa's flag might be lost, so that was my gift to her for Veterans's day, this year... thepassing on the torch or legacy of her grandpa a vet from WW 2.

    I do stupid silly humorous things, that make my dogs bark & howl, for my entertainment ! :) I can sing along with some tv commercials and the dogs go all nuts and BARK ! :) I get a kick out of being SILLY !!

    I also crank up the volume on my cd player and DANCE to the music. I do not let the world get me down, cuz then it owns us instead of us owning our own emotions or reactions to crap ! FEEL it, cry, throw a tantrum whatever then get OVER IT. I get over it by blasting music and dancing ! :)

    Life is too short to permit oneself to be in the doldrums or crabby for any length of time.

    *ps* I also realise I do not neccessarily belong to what I label the *establishment* even when working retail my own boss bout died when the going to church ladies hats were NOT selling and I donned a purple velvet hat and goofed off singing Prince's Purple Rain in a 35.00 going to church ladies hat. My boss about wanted me fired till I said......'the customers all laughed and I sold 6 of them stupid hats that were not selling, so BITE ME' .. She gave me a raise and said ...please do not do that when your own manager boss is being bossed by higher ups. I said OK ! :) I will behave when I need to !

    So when IF the world ends with the 2012 prediction and every one is whining complaining or freakin out panicing...I will be the one in the lawn chair ...watching it all... besides we may only get to see the world END once afterall. :) I mean seriously the world is a mess probably will become worse...some things can not be fixed some people will never GET IT...why stress over all that ?? Life is what we make it enjoyable or crabby as hell ! I prefer...cutting up and humor or dancing !

    Walking works, music, sometimes video/online games, and if I have a friend around, we both grab a bokken and go at it! Fun stuff ^^. @ Queenzen yes! someone has the same idea as me... If it happens, watch it burn. When it doesn't happen, laugh at all the sorry saps that bought into it.

    I have seen the many tv commercials advertising the film. Sort of looks like a train wreck everyone is waiting to happen [that we all probably will watch]...kinda like this forum is, somedays. :)

    I figured someone would do a movie sooner or later, about the world supposidly ending in 2012 ! It will probably net millions at the boxoffice.
