Life is changing dramatically in front of us all, and around the world. Life always changes, it’s true, but right now the changes are daily, and aggressive, some are so painful for many, like the loss of life due to Covid-19 and horrible wars going on like the one in Ukraine.
How to cope with this terrible suffering that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people are going through right now worldwide? Sometimes it can get terrifying for many when thinking about the future. and usually, these patients develop several mental issues, like panic attacks, severe anxiety, anger, depression, suicidal thoughts, that can make them manifest physical symptoms or aggravate the ones they already have.
SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SUICIDE DEATH
Suicide can be preventable from infancy. Having caring parents and relatives who really love their children and look out for them, creating an optimal and loving environment for their healthy and happy growth.
When a friend, a child, a patient, anybody tells us that “I don’t want to live anymore”, or that “I am going to kill myself tonight or tomorrow”, we have the responsibility as human beings to believe him/her and help in any way possible and as soon as possible.
However, this almost seems like a difficult dream in the world we live in. But it is not impossible, we have to have hope, always, and have love, for ourselves, our children, our family, and friends.
When Your Patience Wears Thin, what do you do? Some people do yoga, exercise, some others pray, others get so desperate they yell, behave erratically and dangerously. There is another approach people take: ignore their feelings and put them under the rug.
For starters, there are some persons who are truly patient and can take a lot of bad actions (betrayal, lies, etc) from others without saying a word, but eventually, everybody’s patience wears thin, sooner or later. What do you do when this happens to you?
I usually walk by myself, a long walk, with the path full of steep-climbs and difficulty. I love to climb stairs. When I come back I jump in the swimming pool and then relax, by then, my patience is healed.
Spending time with my daughter and grandchildren gives me great pleasure. I talk to the birds, plants, my livestock, I enjoy the sunlight rays. Enjoying nature fulfills my heart.
I re-read the Goodman and Gilman Pharmacology book and spend hours creating medical hypothesis and even theories that I have proven right and published.

What do you do when your patience wears thin?
Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), their texture (touch).
Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus on our way of living.
Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs, and plants can play an important role in taking the stress away from your life.
1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety
Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location, you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, it’s proven to promote a better night’s sleep
If you surround yourself with jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.
Sleep plays an important role in our physical and mental well-being. If you’re lacking in sleep, you may find you have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems, and coping with change.
2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air
It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room or bedroom to promote a calming ambiance and fight anxiety.
Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colorful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes but having brightly colored plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.
3. ROSES — Take a rose bath
4. Eat edible Flowers — Add them to your salad.
When times are very difficult, sometimes the solution to make it through the day successfully, is just…laugh.
In these times when the whole world is going through lockdowns and many families through survival mode, we all have to give it a try and laugh, to inspire ourselves and others. Sometimes it might be hard when there is a loss in the family, or work. But we have to try and if we can’t, then look for help.
Passing the crazy gen…best thing EVER!
This is a tough grand-child. A tough grandma’s perfect granddaughter!
hahahaha I love this one!
1. Get rid of toxic people around you

FINAL NOTE: It is better to start acting now and stop your anxiety now before the intense stress takes you to a series of panic attacks and a life of worry and hurt.
