How To Handle Depression

Save This For When Someone Close To You Needs It
You eat well and exercise, so if the dark forces in life drag you down from time to time you have the reserves to drag yourself back up again. Not everyone is endowed with the spiritual, mental and physical reserves you have. Most likely, this is for them. Save it so it is handy when you need to pass it on.
If you decide to test drive these recommendations yourself I am not to be held responsible for any increased perception of well being or happiness on your part. You did it. You take the credit.
Got a motto for you to help you through this patch: “Look and do rather than think and stew.”
You’ve probably heard the expression, “A problem well stated is a problem half solved.” Well I was talking to someoine wating to get off anti-depressants and it occurred to me that calling feeling down “depression” does not help. It leads one to be open to taking “anti-depressants” which are anything but! They increase suicides!
If instead we call ir introverted or “interiorised”, as in, “looking inwards” rather than outwards to the environment, then all of a sudden a solution becomes obvious – extrovert by going for a walk and looking at things!
You see, someone who means you harms specialises in invalidation and making nothing of you and your good works and making mountains out of any minor thing you do wrong and molehills out of what they do wrong. They introvert you. Looking outwards extrobverts you.
So takes walks. Long walks. Morning and night. Look at things. Lots of things. Throw sticks for a dog. Skip stones across the water. If you are not physically capable of throwing, where it is legal, spit. Looking outwards and throwing things extroverts the attention and raise your cause level.
Stop watching or listening to the news or reading newspapers. Their owners make more money the more chaos they can foment. A being is as well off as they are dangerous to the environment and as bad off as the environment is dangerous to them. Look for things that are dangerous to you and work out how you can take the danger out of them.
Sing. 10 minutes a day. the kind of songs that lift you up and make you feel better.
Get enough rest. Too little sleep can make the world seem a very dark place. If you are not getting enough sleep, make it a priority to correct this. Lack of sleep will kill you faster than most anything. Except breathing. That’s pretty fast.
Improve your nutrition. Especially B group vitamins and fish oil/omega 3 fatty acids.
Breathe. Deeply and slowly. It has a relaxing effect on the body and mind.
Make a conscious and deliberate effort to relax and feel relaxed. Avoid people and things that make you feel tense and worried, powerless and hopeless. Seek out people and activities that validate and empower you.
Get yourself checked out for any vitamin or mineral deficiencies or toxic overload.
Do stuff. Physical universe stuff. Complete all the little jobs on your to do or pending list. Every job you finish gives you back some attention units. The more attention units you have in present time, the better you will feel.
Wring or write those with whom you’ve been meaning to catch up.
Help people. Whatever you can do. Even if it’s just helping in a soup kitchen, Showing someone the way when they are lost. Go out of your way to look for ways to contribute and help people. Helping others gives meaning to your life and makes you feel better about yourself.
Do what is on your purpose line. Whether it’s painting, writing, sewing, knitting, singing, cooking, carving – do what is on your purpose line.
Make amends for your misdeeds. Dredge up people to whom you have said an unkind word or done an unkind deed or done something that in hindsight you wish you hadn’t. Each handled misdeed will take some burden off you.
Spend 10 minutes a day thinking about all the good things that have happened in your life. Recall the moment and reexperience it. It doesn’t matter that the first time you do it that it takes 10 minutes to think of one thing, persist. Do it each day. If you cannot think of anything good, recall a day when nothing dramatically bad happened.
Make yourself a pledge to do this for a month and see how you feel then.

Cellular starvation kills treatment-resistant breast cancer

purplecancercells
Cancer rewires the metabolism of tumor cells, converting them into lean, mean, replicating machines. But like Olympic athletes who rely on special diets to perform, tumor cells’ amped-up metabolism can also make them dependent on specific nutrients for survival. For years, scientists have been trying to identify and understand these cellular cravings in hopes of creating new cancer treatments that work by blocking off access to necessary nutrients and starving tumors to death. In a new study, Duke University scientists report that cells from a vicious and treatment-resistant form of breast cancer, called triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), die off rapidly when deprived of a key nutrient called cystine. By examining the cause of cell death, they found that this “cystine addiction” is triggered by a mechanism that many kinds of tumor cells use to break away and migrate to new locations in the body. “This process is well-known and shows up in metastatic cancer cells, and what we found is that it also makes the cells cystine-addicted,” said Jen-Tsan Ashley Chi, associate professor of molecular genetics and microbiology at the Duke University School of Medicine and senior author on the study. “This is great news, because these are the cells that we really want to get rid of.”?

Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe – Australian Premiere

Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe will premiere in Australia on December 6th, 2016, in Logan City, QLD.
Due to violent threats against venue owners from the pro-censorship ‘book burning’ cartel, the exact venue will be announced the on December 6th, 2016.
Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe is a documentary film detailing the claims made by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Senior Scientist, Dr. William ‘Bill’ Thompson. Dr. Thompson led the agency’s 2004 study on Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine, investigating its alleged link to autism. Dr. Thompson confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report, data that revealed a causal relationship between MMR vaccine and autism.
The film is not anti-vaccination, and it makes the following calls to action:
That Congress (USA) subpoena Dr. William Thompson and investigate the CDC fraud.
That Congress repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act and hold manufacturers liable for injury caused by their vaccines.
That the single measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine be made available immediately.
That all vaccines be classified as pharmaceutical drugs and tested accordingly.
There has been, and will continue to be, false claims made about this film, from allegations about the film’s creators, to the content within. Featured in the film are the data and claims of the CDC’s Dr. Thompson, autism specialists, university professors, and high profile medical doctors, including two co-hosts of the Emmy Award Winning ‘The Doctors’ medical talk show. Media may claim one of ten free tickets to the Premiere, or request a free private screening link, in order to accurately review the film. The film’s Director and Producers are available for commentary and interviews.

Grandpa Mark
…I received this email today…
“I’ve committed a terrible crime, I don’t agree with government policy.”
Dear Tom – meet Mark Rogers.
Mark is a 66-year-old grandfather – and he’s being targeted with government legal threats.
His “crime”? Use of the word ‘Medicare’ on his small, community-run Save Medicare website, where he collects reporting and analysis on Medicare. It’s a hobby project that he fits around babysitting the grandkids.1
That’s why Grandpa Mark, who lives off his superannuation, was taken aback to receive a letter threatening ‘damages and costs’ if he didn’t shut down his website within 48 hours.
This is a true David vs Goliath story – a vindictive government, enraged after a poor election performance, using the enormous legal resources at their disposal to intimidate everyday Australians into silence.
Grandpa Mark’s story is breaking across the news media right now2 – but in order to shine a light on their bullying behaviour, we need to help make it huge. A massive petition calling them out will force a back down – and prove that attempts to silence community voices on Medicare will only make them louder.
Click here https://www.getup.org.au/david-v-goliath to call on the Turnbull Government to stop bullying Mark Rogers.
This is a new low for a government who is earning quite the reputation for strong-arming its critics – from Gillian Triggs of the Human Rights Commission to Solicitor General Justin Gleeson.3,4
But Mark believes the public have the right to know the truth on Medicare, which is why he’s refusing to take his website down.
He’s been working hard since 2014 to get the word out on the impacts of the Turnbull government’s freeze to the Medicare rebate, $650 million in cuts to pathology and radiology rebates, and the controversial decision to set up a taskforce to privatise Medicare’s billing system.
With government lawyers breathing down Mark’s neck, he needs a huge wave of people power to swoop in behind him – so that he can stand strong against the government’s legal threats.
Will you speak up? Add your name to the petition: https://www.getup.org.au/david-v-goliath
A government trying to silence legitimate political dissent on a major policy issue? Not on our watch.
Nat, Django, Ruby and Daney, for the GetUp team
