You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time.
You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend.
You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt.
Because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin..
Because of recent abductions
in daylight hours, refresh yourself
of these things to do
in an emergency situation...
This is for you,
and for you to share
with your wife,
everyone you know.
After reading these 9 crucial tips ,
forward them to someone you care about.
It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.
1 . Tip from Tae Kwon Do :
The elbow is the strongest point
on your body
If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,
DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM .
Toss it away from you....
chances are that he is more interested
in your wallet and/or purse than you,
and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,
kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole
and start waving like crazy.
The driver won't see you, but everybody else will.
This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars
after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit
(doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.)
DON'T DO THIS!
The predator will be watching you, and this
is the perfect opportunity for him to get in
on the passenger side, put a gun to your head,
and tell you where to go.
AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR,
LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
is in the car
with a gun
to your head
DO NOT DRIVE OFF,
DO NOT DRIVE OFF!
Instead start the engine
and speed into anything, wrecking the car.
Your Air Bag will save you.
If the person is in the back seat
they will get the worst of it.
As soon as the car crashes
get out and run.
It is better than having them find your body
in a remote location.
5 A few notes about getting
into your car in a parking lot,
or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:
look around you,
look into your car,
at the passenger side floor ,
and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van,
enter your car from the passenger door .
Some serial killers attack their victims
by pulling them into their vans while the women
are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car
parked on the driver's side of your vehicle,
and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone
in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back
and get someone -
guard/policeman to walk you back out.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator
instead of the stairs.
(Stairwells are horrible places to be alone
and the perfect crime spot.
This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun
and you are not under his control,
The predator will only hit you (a running target)
4 in 100 times; And even then,
it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.
RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. By nature, women are always trying
to be sympathetic:
It may get you raped, or killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking,
well educated man, who ALWAYS played
on the sympathy of unsuspecting women.
He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often
asked ' for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle,
which is when he abducted
his next victim.
Someone just told me that her friend heard
a crying baby on her porch the night before last,
and she called the police because it was late
and she thought it was weird. The police told her
'Whatever you do, DO NOT
open the door.'
The lady then said that it sounded like the baby
had crawled near a window, and she was worried
that it would crawl to the street and get run over.
The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way,
whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..'
He told her that they think a serial killer
has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax
women out of their homes thinking that someone
dropped off a baby He said they have not verified it,
but have had several calls by women saying that
they hear baby's cries outside their doors
when they're home alone at night.
Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door
for a crying baby ----
Please forward this to all the women you know.
It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle.
This is not for the ladies only,
but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc.,
you may want to pass it onto them, as well.
Send this to any woman you know that may need
- Thomas Richards, Psychologist
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. But when anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situation, it has become a disabling disorder. The major types of anxiety disorders are:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder, GAD, is characterised by chronic anxiety, exaggerated worry and tension, even when there is little or nothing to provoke it. People with GAD can't seem to shake their concerns, anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about health issues, money, family problems, or difficulties at work. Physical symptoms that often accompany the anxiety include fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficulty swallowing, trembling, twitching, irritability, sweating, nausea, lightheadedness, having to go to the bathroom frequently, feeling out of breath, and hot flashes.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, OCD, is characterised by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions). People with OCD may be obsessed with germs or dirt, and may clean themselves over and over or they may be filled with doubt and feel the need to check things or count things repeatedly. Performing repetitive task provides temporary relief, and not performing them markedly increases anxiety.
Panic Disorder is characterised by unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms that may include chest pain, heart palpitation, shortness of breath, dizziness, or abdominal distress, nausea, numbness and chill. People with panic disorder have feelings of terror that strike suddenly with no warning. People who have repeated panic attacks can become very disabled by their condition and should seek treatment or they will avoid leaving home for fear of attacks.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to a terrifying event or ordeal in which grave physical harm occurred or was threatened. People with PTSD have persistent frightening thoughts and memories of their ordeal and feel emotionally numb. They may experience sleep problems, feel detached or be easily startled. Most people with PTSD repeatedly relive the trauma in their thoughts during the day and in nightmares when they sleep. These are called flashbacks. Flashbacks may consist of images, sound, smell, or feelings, and are often triggered by ordinary occurrences, such as a door slamming or a car backfiring on the street. A person having a flashback may lose touch with reality and believe that the traumatic incident is happening all over again.
How to Get Help for Anxiety Disorders ?
Check first with your physician to determine whether the symptoms that alarm you are due to an anxiety disorder or another medical condition, or both. If an anxiety disorder is diagnosed, the next step is usually seeing a psychiatrist. In general, anxiety disorders are treated with
medication, specific types of psychotherapy, or both.
Once you start on medication, it is important not to stop taking it abruptly. Certain drugs must be tapered off under the supervision of a doctor or bad reactions can occur. If you are having trouble with side effects, it’s possible that they can be eliminated by adjusting how much
medication you take and when you take it. Make sure you talk to the doctor who prescribed your medication before making any adjustments.

Man dies of water overdose after drinking 17 pints in eight hours to soothe sore gums
A man died from drinking vast amounts of cold water to relieve painful gums.
Andrew Thornton, 44, ‘ overloaded’ his body after drinking ten litres – more than 17 pints – in eight hours.
He had also been drinking at a similar rate for the previous two days as it helped to numb his mouth, an inquest heard.
The divorcee, who played football regularly and was physically active in his job as a warehouseman, thought he was being sensible by refusing to take painkillers for gum disease.
He was taken to hospital last December after collapsing at the home he shared with his mother Alice, 65, and her partner in Bradford.
Doctors initially thought he was drunk because he was staggering and slurring his words.
However his symptoms were caused by swelling in the brain brought on by excess fluid.
Doctors put salt back into his body to counter the effects of his water intake, but the following day he had a fatal heart attack.
Pathologist Dr Alan Padwell told the Halifax inquest: ‘He claimed drinking water relieved the problems with gum trouble, though he vomited a lot afterwards.
‘He had been drinking an awful lot of water and vomiting. He had overloaded with water.
‘Your body tells you how much you need. Eat and drink normally and your body will regulate itself.’

Woman loses sight after drinking too much water
SHE drank 7 litres of water a day to 'detoxify and reduce her blood pressure'.
Thinking that the more water she drank, the better it would be, she continued her habit and this went on for three months.
But last month, this 26-year-old Taiwanese woman suddenly fainted at home. When she regained consciousness a few days later, she was blind, reported Apple Daily Taiwan.
Doctors had said that the woman's condition is known as 'chronic water intoxication'.
The amount of water she drank daily is more than three times the recommended daily consumption for sedentary adults.
Dr Jiang Shou Shan, who treated her, told Apple Daily Taiwan that his patient had no psychological illness nor any other health problems, except that her blood pressure was 'on the high side'.
She was not named in the report.
Dr Jiang said: 'She mistakenly believes that the more water she drinks, the more she can decrease her blood pressure.
'Hence, for three months, she made herself drink 7 litres of water a day.'
Dr Jiang added that initially, the woman would keep running to the toilet. But after some time, it led to water intoxication.
Too much water consumed causes hyponatremia, a condition where there is insufficient sodium in the blood.
SWELLING IN BRAIN CELLS
As a result, the excess water had to be absorbed by her body cells. Her brain cells swelled after taking in the water, which led to increased pressure in her brain.
Dr Jiang explained that the pressure caused bleeding in her occipital lobe. It is the visual processing centre of the brain which contains most of the visual cortex.
Said Dr Jiang: 'The sodium in our blood maintains our cell metabolism rate. But once you drink too much water, the sodium ions will decrease, causing the brain cells to swell.
'This will cause pressure and lead to bleeding.'
Shin Min Daily News quoted a doctor as saying that drinking too much water can be fatal.
The doctor, from Raffles Hospital, said that our body is constantly losing water through sweat, urination, defecation or exhaled breath, among others.
'Replacing this 'lost water' is essential, but rehydration can be overdone, leading to fatal water overdose,' said the doctor.
According to doctors, the symptoms of water intoxication include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, frequent urination and mental disorientation.
