succumbing to the 'egg-nog-grande-latte' siren ....

Saturday, December 04, 2010

DAG-NAB YOU STARBUCKS!!!!!!!!!!

I innocently wandered into the local star-bucks today for an espresso and there it was, the holiday drink list with various delicious caloric temptations ...

I succumbed, I could not resist the 'egg-nog' latte.

It was delicious! Soooooooo, I really need to walk my bootie off tomorrow. LOL!

Technology time w/loved ones...

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

A few days before Thanksgiving, the family laptop computer started having a melt down because of some terrible new trojan infection. So on top of all the usual Thanksgiving going on w/family, out of town company and friends; I was also trying to work on this laptop; which is the primary computer used by my nephew for college classes/homework, etc.

Of course, I started cursing computers, the internet & the evil-nerd-criminals that create these modern day trojan horses. Fast forward to 5 days later and $140 lighter, the computer is back up and running. So I've been thinking about how much I like technology -when its working; but hate it when it's not. Even cell phones are kind of a blessing w/curses. I really do like how it makes it so much easier to stay in touch w/extended family & friends; BUT WHAT A PAIN WHEN THINGS BREAK DOWN!

Then I got this little 'toon from Ms. Cathy Thorne.

True or False: Depression can be life-threatening?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

I did SP trivia today and they asked if depression can be life threatening. I said true, but was thinking more about it leading to suicide; so found the info in the explanation (below) interesting because I never thought about how it could impact your immune system and increase fatigue.

emoticon

SP Explanation:
Left untreated, depression can last for weeks, months or even years and increase the risk of other health problems and even death. Untreated depression can lead to the following:
- A weakened immune system, resulting in more and longer-lasting illnesses
- Insomnia, which leads to fatigue, reduced mental clarity, and trouble concentrating
- A higher risk of death in the event of a heart attack or stroke
- Alcohol and drug use, abuse, and dependence
- Suicidal thoughts and/or attempts

  Unfortunately you got it right and you understand the implications it can cause. Some people still, do not take it serious. Thanx for sharing~! emoticon

    All so true----sad is a hard place --but feeling there is no way out is when we do our bad behaviors -- trying to medicate ourselves one way or the other--Yes, seeking professional help takes courage---looking at the cause can be gut retching--but soo worth the effort.
GREAT INFO TO GET OUT TO EVERYONE emoticon

    I'll add, that I think depression leads people to a hopeless feeling, which in turn keeps people from taking the active steps to manage their chronic conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. e.g. people tend not to take their meds, monitor their glucose, eat properly. This definitely can lead to death.

Depression is an actual illness; too bad so many people don't get treatment for it. There is a stigma and also many health plans make it hard to get the ongoing treatment needed.
