It is hard for many to keep stress down and I am first in line on the stress scale. When you have other health issues, financial and employment to worry about in a recession its is hard to keep it under control. Sometimes when no matter what your dealing with their is someone worse off. It does get you to refocus. Western MA had a tornado in June 2011. I do not live there now but did for many years. Both Monson and Springfield hit hard many homeless. I do have a roof over my head and food mostly gluten but I can eat. I have wonderful support and love around me. I always try to refocus my heart on those worse off in the US and the world like Japan.
When you see reports on some of these things going on and not enough help coming it sobers you. Now we have two house parties in Washington risking services to Medicare, Vets and Social Services. You have to shake your head. Thanks all.View Thread
