- Producer01/09/2016Memories and What We Make of ThemSometimes it can take half a lifetime for some of us to realize how lucky we were. I grew up 3 blocks from the shores of Lake Erie and spent my entire late spring and summer on the beach. I took this beautiful body of water for granted, or I thought...
Comments06/09/2016 #35 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#34 Ha, love it @Cyndi wilkins, "What the hell were we thinking?" Right?!! I agree, wouldn't trade my life now for the teen years. They were fun and yes, filled with so many memories. Today, teens could not head to that beach with alcohol. I still look back and wonder how we even got away with it.05/09/2016 #34 Cyndi wilkinsWe would go the 'private side' of the beach because, well... we could bring beer and drink! What a great mix, the sun , guys, lake, and beer, eh? OOOOH man! What a great memory @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher View moreWe would go the 'private side' of the beach because, well... we could bring beer and drink! What a great mix, the sun , guys, lake, and beer, eh? OOOOH man! What a great memory @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher...Then we got married and had kids...What the hell were we thinking? LOL! Just kidding...Best thing that ever happened to me...But I sure do miss the innocence of those days...Thanks for the memories;-) Close03/09/2016 #30 CityVP 🐝 ManjitMemories are indeed what we make of them and the song made famous by Buzz Luhrman underscores this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTJ7AzBIJoI View moreMemories are indeed what we make of them and the song made famous by Buzz Luhrman underscores this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTJ7AzBIJoI
There is a great sense of personal freedom when I sit watching a large body of water, especially on a bright sunny day. The freedom is in being open to a beautiful construct of nature. To be present to nature is a tremendous form of life appreciation. Close03/09/2016 #29 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#28 Hope it was a happier feeling than sad @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD! I still miss my dad on rare occasions and he passed away in the 70's. I think I miss the man I didn't get to know as I grew older. But, when I think of him it always brings a smile to my face. We never forget, no matter how long they've been gone. We just move on and replace the sadness with happy memories, thank goodness.02/09/2016 #26 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#24 Thanks @Kevin Pashuk, glad you enjoyed this! I have noticed water in your photos and I'm sure I've missed some too! I never tire of viewing other's photos of the water. How nice that you work near Lake Ontario. I saw the photo you posted a few days ago, very nice!! Being near the water does clear the mind and help to refocus, doesn't it?02/09/2016 #25 David B. GrinbergWhat a wonderful read, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. My late father had season tickets for the NFL NY Jets football team when I was a kid. Thus, I have many fond memories of going to Shea Stadium in Queens with my dad for Sunday home games. I also recall running on the field and taking home part of the 50-yard line after the very last game the Jets played at Shea Stadium (prior to moving to Metlife Stadium in NJ). And while the Jets usually lost more than they won, the father-son bonding was always a winning experience I will always cherish.02/09/2016 #24 Kevin PashukEnjoyed the read @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. As a certified 'water person' I can fully identify. You will notice that many of my photos have water in them. I live and work near Lake Ontario and often retreat there when I have quiet work (reading or planning) to do, or just need a soul refresh.02/09/2016 #23 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#17 Hi @Lada 🏡 Prkic, such beautiful memories! You reminded me how romantic it was to be alone with 'a first love' near the water! I enjoy looking for seashells. I still do it. I took a photo last year of some shells I found in North Carolina, maybe I'll post it just for fun. Enjoy your trip, I'm sure it will be SO relaxing and thanks for sharing!!02/09/2016 #22 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#16 Hi @Nicole Chardenet, what a great experience you shared! I bet you did have a lot of good and not so good memories come flooding back. The good old days of going from being an older teen to a young adult, the transition can be very tough. Cleveland has changed a lot, hasn't it?! I love the 4th St. district and Playhouse Square. Ah, you reminded me of yes, one of a gals bigger worries back then- guys and feeling like a dork. I bet so many of us felt that way!! Thanks for sharing. Where did you go to school in Cleveland?02/09/2016 #21 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#14 #16 #19 Just a note to express that I'm so touched that you both, @Pascal Derrien and @Nichole Chardenent had twinges of bad memories after reading this piece. I'm in awe at your melodic expressions of mixed feelings, with a slant on the negative ...that serves to remind us that those with good childhoods are so blessed to have what they have. My heart goes out to all children and I work to emphasize Positive Parenting. You Stir Me Along. Thank you.02/09/2016 #17 Lada 🏡 PrkicI agree with you dear @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. I was born and live my entire life by the sea. My all memories are tied to a large body of water. Reminiscence on family walks in the winter and collecting the seashells washed up on the beach, the memories of the first love……
I think I couldn't live someplace where there's no view of the sunset behind the sea horizon. Am looking forward to tomorrow's outing with friends and family on a nearby island and making more memories for my book of life. :-)02/09/2016 #16 Nicole ChardenetMemories can be both good and bad when you go back to old haunts...last year I went back to Ohio for an informal reunion with some old university friends and my ex-college roommate and I stayed together in a room downtown...in a motel that hadn't been there back in our day! What I noticed as I walked around by myself that first evening, waiting for Bonnie to arrive from Pittsburgh, is just how many memories and feelings came flooding back as I walked down old neighbourhoods and around my university campus. Both good and bad - the '80s came back to me, hugely, it was like stepping back in time but also surreally not, because it was Freshman Orientation Week and the kids that were there hadn't even been born then - in fact maybe their worried-looking parents hadn't met yet. Along with memories of fun times I hadn't thought about in years though, came a lot of unpleasant memories of insecurities, old loves gone sour, worries about money, feelings that I was a total dork. A couple of days later I asked Bonnie how it had been for her walking around, and she said the same thing...many happy memories, and a lot of memories of just how neurotic we all were, constantly moping and worrying about this or that. Still, it was great to hang out with my ex-peeps, and we had a lot of good times thta weekend. We do it every other year, next year's the next year!!!

' 1 in 10 USA suicides are linked with Invisible Illnesses. People need to understand that it is #2 #4 "Definitely not a Choice."~@Leckey Harrison.

Let's do that.16/08/2016 #10 Brian McKenzie#9 @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I was a licensed PI for the state of Washington. I don't play nice. When I "run" a clinic, a HIPAA violation is the usual appetizer; the billing fraud hammer comes later, usually after I have forced/ threatened a State Compliance Audit.....and the drug ring cases I usually dumped at the FDA, DEA doorstep - they have a heavier hammer than I.16/08/2016 #7 Brian McKenzieYou will never get to be "Uncrazy" - there is no test for normal personality, every clinical interaction will reaffirm the current Dx or assign a new Dx that perpetuates the treatment, counseling, maintenance, meditcation carousel. The system does not want you cured but on an ever revolving cycle of meds and side effects that keep feeding their machine. Try it sometime - go to a provider and tell them you feel fine.....you will leave with at least one "illness" and a med script.......PS this is how I used to bust providers that were suspected of over prescribing opiods because of a nice pharma kickback incentive.08/08/2016 #3 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#1 #2 So many thoughts are extremely well stated, and I love your personal twist: to dedicate each component into separate entities for which you attribute a particular person(s) as having a special insight.

Comments12/07/2016 #2 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDVeterans are committing suicide at alarming rates; teens are 'cutting,' girls die from anorexia and bulemia eating disorders, parental abandonment occurs both phychologically and literally, babies are left in dumpsters, college students are raped on university campuses, uncles at a sleepover friend's house rape our daughters, as do fathers. For years. Some children were only 8 or 9 when it started. It is all ok to talk about. You're not alone. Many of us are there for you, and we are not afraid to talk about it. We reach out our hands to help...and we don't turn our backs on you like you think the rest of the world has done. So don't give up. Don't give in. Someone else has had a horrific miscarriage or stillbirth, too, and we know what NOT to say as well. We've been there. Talk to someone who cares. Right, @Selim Yeniçeri, @Dr. Allen Brown, @Randy Keho, @Randy Smith, @Brian McKenzie, @Dale Masters, @Gary Sharpe, @Gerald Hecht, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, @Ali Anani, and more. We all need help, sometimes. It's all okay.

Comments14/06/2016 #2 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhDDid my research, and yes.....resources are only for Australia inhabitants. Still, there are many educational booklets available, categorized however one would like to absorb information: topic, audience, and situation. For example, depression in "women" could lead to "Post-Partum Depression (PPD)" and depression in the 'elderly' could lead to a brochure on the importance of "Socializing" for good mental health. Excellent, superb site for doctors, nurses, social workers, case managers, charge nurses, and discharge planning. Just pure excellence!
