I know we all talk about this sometimes and I came across this site that says it is, "dedicated to help you find the key to unlocking and interpreting the meanings to your dreams" pretty cool, so i'd like to share it here with you, my friends
My mental getaway is a place that I envision in my mind, a place I can think of and "escape" to from time to time.
I am at the beach. The sand feels warm against my skin, as I dig my bare toes deeper into the sand it feels cool and moist. The sun shines brightly on a perfect weather day as a light breeze gently blows on by and breezes through my hair. I hear the sounds of seagulls nearby. The gentle rolling of the waves is so soothing; they come in then descend leaving a scattering of seashells and polished stones. I feel at peace just lying there in the sand, feeling the warmth of the sun and the sand, the coolness of the breeze and am lulled into a state of relaxation by the sounds of the ocean. I am at peace.
You don't always have to leave to getaway. You can create your own version of a mental getaway; complete with sights and sounds and feeling, a place you can bring to mind in the midst of a chaotic day to bring you feelings of calmness. It can be any place you enjoy, a special memory, it doesn't even have to be a real place it can be a place of your own devise. Give it a try sometime you may be surprised. ~mcView Thread
If you're not afraid to die, why be afraid to live!
lists of symptoms and medications for people with bipolar disorder, the entire thing can seem disarmingly simple. But anyone who has been there knows that there is nothing simple about accepting and living with a chronic illness, and it's just as important to address the emotional and practical issues of bipolar as it is to know the diagnostic criteria and treatment guidelines. Those with other chronic diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, or multiple sclerosis go through a similar process of grieving, accepting, learning, and adapting - and through this, begin healing and recovery.View Thread
