Kat, you know I wish you only the best.

And I believe that what is best for each of us does ultimately serve the highest good for all-- that there is no rational conflict between the greatest/highest good for one and the greatest/highest good for another. Interwoven, life is, and human beans in it.

And I bet you are thankfull that the anxiety is giving way not only to peace, but to confidence and strength.

Lots of good vibes coming to you from Suffolk, England, Kat.

Interestingly there was a piece in our local paper just yesterday about how one person dealt with anxiety and similar things. This particular writer had realised that they had responsibility for how they felt each day. OK, they may not have been able to do much about it at first, but over time they had developed a positive outlook which started with waking up and saying to themselves, "Oh goody, another day to enjoy!" rather than "Oh crikey, another long dreary day, how am I doing to get through this one as well."

Playing the dulcimer in the Peace Garden sounds ideal.

Best wishes,

Peter

Gee Garg. Obsession with Kat kicking in again? By now some one as bright as you ought to have the insight to know that is an indication you are decompensating. If you are off your meds, get back on them. If on them, get them adjusted.

You owe it to yourself.

Ah, Kat, even on the phone, directly linked this week past, I never picked up on the depth of your needs. (I can be dense often--and that's a certainty.)

You do know of the many problems Carol has had through all the years. She has to be the bravest person I know. Also, through the years, I've watched her struggle to calm herself, and then, go deep and do deep breath machinations with progressive muscle relaxation until, amazingly, in a few minutes, she is, hopefully, relaxed and a new person -- with real relative calm. ------- Do look for a CD to help you start with breathing exercises. It is real -- and it seems actually to help. And you can do them whenever you need to.

The scores of ECT treatments she has had have done wonders, we think, for the on-going drug-resistant depression -- but the anxiety is a tough old bird. Learn Leadbelly's good song---"Relax Your
Mind!" There was one clued-in dude who KNEW ABSOLUTELY that he, for his own good, had to be able to relax. After singing his way out of prison TWICE, I do suspect he decided to quit tempting fate!

Love to you and Rog,

Art

Kat you over the years you have helped and encouraged many of us when we were down and out.there isn't enough words in the dicionary to thank you for all the help you have given me.Here are a few phrases that I remind mtself of ever day and maybe you can use some of them. Worry looks around--Sorry looks back--Faith looks up---Life is short---When need be break the rules---Forgive quickly---Kiss slowly but with passion---Love truly---Never take someone for granted---Hold every person close to your heart---Because some day you might wake up and find you've lost a diamond in the rough. All your friend here in Mudcat are pulling for you and our love and our prayers are with you 24/7. LUVYA Louie

Dear Kat,

First, here's a big non-contagious, un-contaminated ((((hug)))) for you. Thank you for sharing with us. We're here to help any way we can. The more we talk about what's bothering us, the more we can take control of it. We also find that others are going thru the same thing, and we don't need to go it alone.

Now look......Rog is about to see light at the end of the tunnel.....Tom's okay but has a long haul ahead......I've used up another life but I'm doing great again........The problem in making a lot of friends here is the potential for losing them and for me at least, the trade-off is pretty good. I miss them all but each enrichened my life.......and yours.

Now throw that dulcmer across your back, see if you can grab your ass with both hands, then take your fine self out there to the hospital and play for some folks........go on now......git with ya'.......

We'll all be here pulling for you.

You have been our central pillar of support for so long here, it is good for you to ask back,I think. Makes me feel the circle is more balanced and I, like so many others I am sure, am so glad of an opportunity to pay back just a little of what I owe.

Kat, I think the Bear has a good idea:
"Sending you psychic bundles of catnip and golden bowls of cream -- and of course a soft-cushioned, sunny window seat to lie on as you purr yourself back to the best of health.

(Oh, and strong, healing thoughts, white light, and all the conventional goodies as well. Want my church to pray for you, too?)"

And Peace is right, too.

My kitty and I send you love and warmth and healing purrs. Please do let us know what else we can do.

Some of you have known I've been a bit under the weather ever since contracting pneumonia last April. I thank you for your discretion. I had a delightful doctor's visit, today, with the woman doc who does OMT, osteo-manipulation-therapy and also some spiritual counseling/work...hands on kind of stuff. I was asking about coping with a lot of anxiety I've been having lately. (My mind has been latching onto every little thing, going off on tangents.)

There are many reasons for this not least of which is my Rog having to work every weekend and a lot of late nights this past month as they moved the television station where he is chief engineer. This coming weekend is the first he will have had off in over a month. THAT has completely messed up our home routines and I have felt very alone. As a consequence errands have piled up as has housework, etc. We do have clean clothes and food, at least.:-)

But, other factors have had their impact, too, losing our soul mate friend in April, Sandy and his grandson, and now Barry, as well as various Mudcatters being in hospital, two of whom I am very close to, and having some major complications with side effects of the pneumonia and the meds they prescribed for it.Also, feeling as if I had to gird up for a fight every time I went in to see my regular doc. (That will be changing, soon.) Plus, certain family members have been projecting their own major anxieties which I feel I have picked up on.

In talking with the doc this morning, it came to me I have not asked my Mudcat friends for help as I thought there was just too much for us all to already cope with and I didn't want to add to the burden. I now realise this was rather stupid, so here I am, hat in hand, so to speak, asking you, please, for some good energy, calm, peacefullness, etc. The docs say my lungs and heart are fine. It's that old bugaboo panic/anxiety that needs to be gone.

Another good thing we determined...I want to be playing my dulcimer to help folks heal, so I am going to try going to a Peace Garden at a local hospital and just sit and play...I find nursing homes and hospice too sad for me, right now, but the garden is nurturing and any one who wants may wander in for a listen, i.e. it feels *safe* for me, too. (I've been really anxious about germs, lately!*bg*)

I've got to take baby steps, but it feels good to do so and it feels VERY good to come to my friends. Thank you, very much,

luvyakat
