Learning Wednesday: Body Cues for ANXIETY

Anxiety and extreme and constant stress can cause the body real harm: from tachycardia (rapid heart beat) to high blood pressure. Joint pain, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, headaches, migraine, fibromyalgia, and many more symptoms and or illnesses that can affect our way of living by diminishing the capacity of the patient to live a happy and fulfilling life.

Family members and relatives of the patient affected by severe anxiety have to give him/her full and loving support; understand that it is a real mental affliction that can, with time -if not treated and supported- cause real and serious body problems.

Forget about the frantic life and live day by day.

If you are affected by the insane excitement that work puts us through, slow down that frantic pace of life in the city and enjoy the relaxing-vibrant life in nature.

Keep always in mind that we decide how to think and respond to the events in our lives. Most people respond to how the events make them feel. But there is another way to live, a way that will foster peace from the depths of our soul.

Donald Trump Hate Groups Increase in America – San Diego Holds Many

BEFORE I START THIS POST, PLEASE READ: I am not affiliated to any political party. I am a free thinker and nobody owns me, nothing owns me. I owe nothing to nobody. So, no, I don’t hate Trump, I don’t love Obama nor vice versa. I just analyze publicly certain situations when I think they are out of control.

And United States of America so called president (yes, with ‘p’ lower case) is out of control. It is chaos reigning in the world right now. If there is chaos in the USA, there is chaos in the world, simply because the US has been the leader of the globe for decades. And that -chaos- is not good for the USA and it is not good for the planet.

I cannot call him “President Trump”, because he might have the title but he does not behave like one. I have no respect for him at all. He is crude, rude, low class, vulgar, even perverse. Yes, I have been quiet, but he has gone too far. He is absolutely and irrefutable out of his mind, saying things like “there is a vaccine for AIDS” …. WHAT?! When I heard this, how can I say it without insulting him badly? ah, no, impossible to find a decent word.

What I cannot comprehend is why there are still many people who believe the words that come out of his mouth and follow him to his rallies. He is not “going to drain the swamp” people, because HE IS part of the swamp. He gives tax relieves to his friends. He hasn’t revealed his taxes because he has powerful friends who protect him from doing so, because it is good for what ever they are doing with him and through him: M.O.N.E.Y.

Worst of all, he has created a climate of hate, terrible fear and death. Frankly, I am making this post as a statement of my opposition to killing and the suppression of life. As a medical doctor I have the obligation and responsibility to save lives, to extend the lifespan of my patients, I make their lives more comfortable and help them live with physical and mental dignity.

Trump, with the hate that invades his tiny little mind, is infecting humanity and it’s my obligation to say it so, as a doctor. As a medical doctor I oppose the use of choke-holds, I oppose brutality and aggression against ANY human being. I will NEVER agree to the use of deadly force to control any type of situation (those that many hate groups, consider it to be “normal”!) Those are excuses to kill because of hate and rage.

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Hate creates sadness, anxiety, depression, physical illnesses that can threaten human lives. Hate produces a huge increment in suicide numbers, a terrible loss of lives. STOP HATE! It is imperative that we stop hate. Yes, one person cannot stop violence in the world, but we can do something pro-love, against fear, against hate in our neck of the woods. If we defend and/or save one life in our lifetime, oh goodness, it’d be a wonderful thing. Let’s try to do it. Just one, one at a time. Let’s teach our children love and compassion, not fear, not hate.

Let’s teach love and compassion

These are some reports about HATE GROUPS in the US since the Trump Era

White nationalist hate groups in the US have increased 55% throughout the Trump era, according to a new report by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and a “surging” racist movement continues to be driven by “a deep fear of demographic change”.

“Though the experts appear to understand the threat, they remain hamstrung by the Trump administration, which has hired members of hate groups into high-level positions and has on its staff people like Stephen Miller, the senior policy adviser in the White House who has long been allied with anti-immigrant hate groups,” it said.

The law center said the number of hate groups rose by 7 percent last year to 1,020, a 30 percent jump from 2014. That broadly echoes other worrying developments, including a 30 percent increase in the number of hate crimes reported to the F.B.I. from 2015 through 2017 and a surge of right-wing violence that the Anti-Defamation League said had killed at least 50 people in 2018.

But don’t forget that your life is precious, and that you are never alone. There is always someone who cares, but try to reach out before things get out of control in your mind.

Try to read positive quotes, hopeful good reads. Listen to calm music or any uplifting music of your preference. Surround yourself of really good people who love you for who you are.

Practice some fun exercise. It doesn’t have to be exhausting, just a good walk or playing with any ball. Observe nature, do something that make you really happy: cooking, reading, spending lots of time with your pets.

Do not despair if it seems that nobody cares about humanity. Sometimes it can feel that way, but there is always true good people who care for you if you just reach out. It could be a neighbor, a friend, relative, or these phone numbers where ever you are in this beautiful earth we live:
