This is a question that comes to my mind everywhere I go. Each time I listen somebody's complaining loud about something that he shouldn't, each time that somebody goes to eat at a casual restaurant where the food is going to have to bake and take some time to cook, each time that someone tries to get ahead of you -wrongfully- in a line waiting on something. And of course every year, right after Thanksgiving, when major retailers have "big sales" and people "kill" each other "to make sure that they are going to get their favorite game or electronic device.
In uncountable cases people have anxiety disorder - most of the time accompanied by depression - and they don't know it. In my case I was 55 when I realized it!!!
I was giving a ride to one of my employees and I caught the end of an advertisement: "...anxiety..." I went back into my office and I called the number, and here I was against my whole life. Uneasy, short tempered, easily getting mad, impatient and to put it into perspective: a person full of a disorder -anxiety- and a lot of time depression too.
Fortunately enough, at that time I was working intently on self correcting other health conditions. One of these was that I was overweight.
A lot of things that you have to do to shred your extra pounds can also help you lower your anxiety disorder. And I am saying "lower" because it is almost impossible to be anxiety free once you have it due to any reason. But you can manage it. I can show you in my book, My Personal Story of Health through Nutrition, Weight Loss and Light Exercise and the Fascinating Wellness Program that Came Out of It, which can be purchased through Book locker, how to manage this condition and how to keep it very low. And once you lower it, it's going to benefit you in other areas of your health. Why not medications? Because most of the time, medication for this condition does way more bad things than good.
So, join me in my personal story of health through nutrition for a better life with minimal levels of anxiety, without panic attacks, and full of good days.

Well, Gus, your opening message has not contributed to the conversation apparently. That is, of course, if we take notice of the forum police, as no sooner had you posted it, than she voted it as not contributing. WOW!

The dilemma you define grew out of America's notion that it was a "Caring" Nation. So the entrepreneurial types hopped on that bandwagon and commenced to make their fortunes caring for all and sundry who didn't or couldn't grow up and care for themselves. Needless to say, it grew into quite an industry to the point where now, almost everyone is employed therein and doing quite well, of course, except for their own personal cross which they bear with much self satisfaction as they tootle off to their own personally chosen carer or carers.

So consider yourself lucky that you were not burdened with a cross to carry. Just because you are lucky enough to be healthy, doesn't give you the right to laugh at the poor souls who just can't possibly stand on their own two feet. After all, they too are our fellow Americans, and we are THE caring nation! So please, somebody come quick and care for me. Never mind about Gus, he is lucky.

All in good fun/sarcasm of course.

You are right on track, Gus. A healthy life is not burdened with depression and all that follows on from there. My favourite tonic for depression is honey and milk smile maker. And yes, if one is not carrying some anxiety occasionally he/she is probably not trying hard enough to achieve and will probably put on excessive weight.

However, the Caring Nation morphed into a Fearful Nation as time went on. `What If' is the war cry now. What if I do get Sick? I am expecting to do just that, ........... well, everyone else does, don't they? What if I die? Someone died in Cameroon in 1884 from the very same disease I must have as the symptoms are identical, i.e., headache, nausea, loss of energy, no appetite......... wow I must have cancer too, so I will tootle off to town and buy me some sickness insurance.

Keep it coming, Gus. You will incite much wrath and maybe even encourage a few to stand up and be healthy with you.

Sorry, Captain, but amazon are unable to ship that commodity to my address. Have you any alternative recommendations?

You see what I mean, Gus? Just the idea that we are maybe an anxious nation makes these guys very edgy. Maybe there is a better word for anxiety we could use so as to be more caring in how we discuss their many ailments.

Ironically, the butt paste the old fellow recommends is also unable to be shipped to the antipodes, so I guess that means it a national security item and they don't want any of it to leave the country! This anxiety leads to sore butts too, I guess.

No, Gus, we will have to wait until these goofballs have had their fun before we can address your posts in a sane and productive manner. But don't go away, these guys are only here for amusement, as most of them are either too fat to leave home or living on their pensions. So it would be an act of caring if we let them have a little frolic first, then when they are weary and sleeping peacefully, we can have a rational discussion about your topic.
