Great way to start! I'm tired of this voting shit myself. Motherfuckers wont stick together all year for ANYTHING else, but suddenly people want to get together and "make a difference". Pfffft. Fuck off.

Just a bunch of passionately ill-informed ass puppets who want to be politically correct about something. I dont care who votes for who, just dont bother me with that shit. I tell people that I wont vote, JUST to ruffle their feathers. laugh.gif By the way, I am voting, but still, I just like reactions.

i'm gonna sit this election out. i really believe it's about the lesser of two evils. true change will never happen. anytime we've been on the verge of true change...look what happens...

malcolm

mlk

jfk

robert kennedy....

obama is just a figure head who talks a good game but really has no power to make any real changes. u want real change in d.c.!? campaign finance reform is the answer. when lobbyist aren't allowed to buy our politicians....shit will take a step in the right direction.

there's a reason guys like ron paul and dennis kucinich are silenced and pushed out...it's because they are telling the truth. guys like them would never be president in the u.s.

Okay, so this is the deal...

We work with "the community", meaning, people who don't give a shit about being couth. Soooo...these mofos will come to the building for telemed appointments and psychiatric evaluations, and act like they don't give a shit about life.

With that in mind, these mofos will steal and do whatever, just for sport. About 2 months ago, somebody stole a can of Lysol out of the bathroom...the $5 can...not the off-brand can.

My parents run the business up and down, and guess who says the most about toiletry? Yep, you got it...my mom. So she never let go of the lysol being stolen, and JUST when it seemed like she let it go, some shitbrake uses the bathroom, leaves the building after their appt. and SUDDENLY 5 rolls of Charmin toilet paper is missing.


FUCK! Why why why? NOW...she's so pissed off, to the point that we're all wiping our asses with cheap ass, 1-ply, jail house, toilet paper. I'm a man and I didn't think I would give a shit about using 1-ply paper, but after 2 weeks of it, I'm pissed the hell off and dealing with it in the worse way.

Smh...

i'm a scott tissue man myself. i can't get with charmin. laugh.gif

Really though, why do motherfuckers here at the job, wait til the LAST SECOND to coordinate their time to vote. I'm responsible for so much shit around here, and the LAST thing I wanna do, is adjust a fuckin' schedule before tomorrow morning.

Seriously, didn't our employees know that early voting was encouraged? I know that we mentioned it about 2 weeks ago. Nevermind, our people here are so freakin' Johnny come lately about every damn thing...so why am I even surprised?

Whose going to worry about shit running smoothly in the morning or picking up people's slack if they leave early? Ohhh, don't worry about, we can just inconvenience Mr. Shelton with some more horseshit, he doesn't mind. And here I am, dealing with the horseshit.

If folks here acted like they didn't know about early voting, then I can only imagine their knowledge on what the ballots read. I tell ya man, there are some special motherf*ckers here...sad but true. no2.gif

Had to bump this, since threads seem to go to No Man's Land if they aren't being posted in. I'll have to check that out. This is a bit lengthy, but bare with me guys...

Anyhow, I had Doc's appt this morning for my blood pressure (follow-up), since my anxiety attack/blood pressure early last month. Mind you, this is the first time ever in life, that I've had blood pressure issues. Most of it stemmed from weight gain and a lot of sodium in my diet (which I was highly unaware of, after spending more time reading more than prices in the grocery store).

Back in 2010, I was in the 170's (weight), but then I moved into a new house that summer, and stopped working out. Needless to say, my hog mentality and alcohol consumption skyrocketed. I got on a scale around August of that year, and to my surprise, I was 183.3. lbs...needless to say, I wasn't happy about it, because I didn't earn those lbs the right way.

By January 2011, I was going through a bad break-up, coupled by the numerous house-warming/fight parties (translation: pot luck and booze binges), I was now weighing about 196 lbs....bad look. Did I mention that I wasn't exercising regularly? Oh yeah, how could I forget? Lol. I didn't have much workout equipment at this time, and I wasn't even motivated to do shit anyway. By the time that summer came around, I had slapped the mighty 200 lb mark in the face, but it welcomed with open arms. no2.gif

This weight issue got so bad, to the point that I weighed 210 just this past August...something had to be done. So from August 1st to September 13th (right before I headed to Vegas for the Chavez/Martinez fight) I had lost a total of 17 lbs, by adjusting my diet/drinking and working out to no ends. All the while, I was dealing with acid reflux and gastrointestinal distress (when working out heavily). I woke up on the morning of my Vegas trip weighing 193 lbs (which I did in a matter of about 38 days).

Anyhow, the binging started again this past November, which included several nights of getting shitfaced and eating like a caveman with my brother. I had my healthy eating days, but boy, did those "who gives a shit" days outweigh them. Not only that, but the mighty Thanksgiving binge was included as well...so I got right back to 199 lbs (waking up at around 195 lbs).

An early December afternoon at work, sealed the deal for me. I just felt my freakin' throat getting tighter and tighter throughout the day, so I just chalked it up as allergies (which I rarely have), and moved on. I then began to feel my head getting light and tightening up at the same time. I did have a bit to drink the night before, so I thought it was a semi-hangover.

I heated up my lunch (smoked brisket, blue cheese potatoes, and green beans), and just as I picked up my fork to eat...I just felt my forearms tighten up, and I felt dizzy as shit. Still, I didn't panic, but instead, chose to walk to CVS pharmacy and get my pressure checked. Mind you, I've NEVER had problems with my pressure, but for some reason, I decided to get it checked when these symptoms kicked in.

Needless to say, there was NO blood pressure machine at CVS, so I asked the nurse where I could get it checked (while I was describing my symptoms). She told me to go to the fire department down the street. As I walked out of the store, I heard a blaring voice over the intercom and the front desk cashier yelled, "sir, the nurse needs you right now!". At this point, I forgot to mention that my vision began to get blurry, and I was scared shitless of the loud intercom. The nurse ran up to me and told to me get help immediately (scary shit).

She asked if I needed her to call the paramedics...hmm. In good ol' Cshel's mind, I knew better than to do that, and have to await the ultimate medical bill that would likely horsefuck me for at least the first 6-8 months of the new year. I gladly declined and walked back to work, which was about 3 buildings down. As I walked, the trip seemed longer and longer, as evidenced by my blurry vision, light head, and my now, shakey legs.

I picked up the phone and called my brother...no answer. My dad. No answer. I was thinking, "Fuck, if I have to call this woman (my mom), it's gonna be some serious shit". Needless to say, that was the only person that answered. At this point, I was talking like the black kid in the wheelchair on Malcolm in the Middle (breathing heavy between 2-3 words). Surprisingly, my mom didn't panic, she just told me to calm down, and mentioned that it could be my blood pressure or anxiety.

I drank some water, popped a couple of Aleve, took some deep breaths, made an appt, and left when I felt better. Mind you, this happened on Dec. 5th, and I had JUST applied for medical insurance two days prior to the incident, and my coverage wasn't good until the 15th of the month. With that in mind, I had to pay $130 for a copay at the clinic the next day, and $40 for EKG. The EKG results were good, no heart trouble. Sadly though, my blood pressure 157/103...high a fuck! (mostly due to being anxious and not knowing what to expect). When I heard those numbers, I swore I had just called in to check the price of a speeding ticket....it was THAT to me.

My doctor was an Asian lady (hot as fuck, by the way), and she explained that I needed to change my diet and so on. I didn't let her run any blood tests, because that shit would've just killed my pockets that day. I just told her to give me 2 weeks to adjust my diet and exercise, and she agreed. My pressure was about 147/94 when I left the office.

On Christmas Eve, my pressure was high on the way home from work (I felt it in my head and neck), so I took a apple cider vinegar tablet (which works for HBP), but it was too late. The problem is, my anxiety was making shit worse...I couldn't stop thinking about it. I then vomited...but it was clear. What?! Clear?! I made myself vomit again, and it was STILL clear. After that, I felt revived...weird, right? On the 27th, I was heading back to work, and felt my pressure go up while I was 5 mins out from the job, and I vomited in a bag in my car...guess what color it was? The craziest part is, I was about to vomit when I was scheduling my doc's appt. Weird.

Again, after I vomited, I felt revived. At that point, I knew it had more to do with my anxiety levels, and less with my pressure...but they were both factors. Anyhow, that's how I ended up at the doc's office this morning, since making that appt. I've been doing good since then, but I still needed to go to the doctor just for the sake of knowing my status.

The doc's assistant was nice, though I felt she was being mean because she didn't let me take my shoes off before she weighed me. Lol. She seemed understanding of the whole situation, and confirmed that is was indeed anxiety, that made me vomit when my pressure was high. When she checked my pressure, it was 138/98...a bit high, but again, I was a bit anxious before they called me in.

Then comes this jackass fucktard of a doctor, walking into the room to follow-up. He asked me some of the same questions that she did, but his responses were bland as hell. I told him that had a long night of drinking before the HBP incident on Christmas Eve, and he replied, "Why would you even do that?" Why in the fuck not, doc? You act like I'm underage or somethin. Dude was a nonchalant cunt.

Anyhow, gladly, he decided not to diagnose me with hypertension (big sigh of relief), and his ongoing automated answers for the 12 minute session was, "Oh don't worry, you're young, just eat right and exercise". What?! That's it?! No stories from your younger years? No real life examples?! Huh?! Then I went on to ask about what herbal supplements did he recommend, and again, he gave me the same horseshit about, "Oh don't worry, you're young, just eat right and exercise".

Dude really, I still have a legit concern about my health. Mind you, he was doing blowing me off with the classic "Get outta here" hand signal as he recited his half-assed rhetoric. Dude seriously, I could've told myself to eat right and work out more...that was the chief reason for my condition....why isn't good ol' Cshel a doctor? He gave me some menu of shit that I can eat, and the stuff that I should eat in moderation.

To top it all off, he grabbed my left arm and seemed to have put me in this wild ass WWF-type armbar and proceeded to check my pressure. I was 126/84, but hell, and 25 mins before he graced me with his mediocre presence, my pressure was 138/98. I asked what made it go down so low, and he simply replied (while waving me off), "Because you relaxed". He encouraged me to take some yoga classes and informed that there are a lot of attractive women that take the class (if I needed any more motivation). Again, why am I not a doctor? I could've told a patient the same thing.

He just told me learn how to calm down and not get overzealous about shit...coupled with my diet. I spend more time in the grocery store nowadays, and I love it (excuse me for sounding homo). I have a bunch of workout equipment at home, but I'm seriously about to check out some groupons for yoga classes...I must engage in this new consideration. Maybe I can get laid off the strength of my sob stories...who knows. laugh.gif

I've been drinking in moderation and following a low-sodium diet...and what can I say, I feel like the old champ again. I'm currently 186 lbs, which is 24 lbs lighter than I was 5 months ago. To be honest, cooking with no salt is great! Using herbs makes the shit taste a lot better, and besides, I dont go out to eat often, so I can definitely do that in moderation.

I wont lie, I thought I'd never experience health issues like, but that shit brought down a few pegs and raised my awareness about shit that didn't apply to me at one point.

i was dealing with health issues a few years back and had high blood pressure at one point. the only thing that indicated that i had it was nose bleeds. it was kind of scary because they were like faucets. it was crazy. i had to have my nose carterized(sp?) and that was a trip. when i realized sodium was the cause, i cut it out totally. i haven't used salt on anything since. the cool thing (if there is anything cool about being sick) in your situation is that u have these indicators that are popping up pretty quick. know that your body is giving you a warning to slow it down. drinking does serious damage to your liver that you should concern yourself with. your liver is pretty much the main factor in your immune system. abuse your liver...abuse your immune system. as for the acid reflux...you need to lay off the dairy and acidic foods and that will take care of itself. i think u may want to try and do a cleanse or a detox. you will feel great afterwards and it's sort of like a system reset in so many ways. i'm actually starting one this week and will shoot to do a 15-20 day fast. it's a lot easier than it seems and for a guy like me that eats like shit and needs to drop weight...it's the perfect solution.

Thanks for the advice Professor! I never wanted to be part of the "bad health" club, but knowing that it was something that I could fix and ultimate get rid of (for the most part), was an inspiration within itself. I knew for a FACT that I needed to lose weight, but my motivation was slipping away week by week...for some odd reason. Glad I didnt have the nose bleed issue...that shit sounded serious man.

I still drink, but I've cut back tremendously. I was never a fan of hard liquor (thank God), though I'll indulge periodically. Beer has been my biggest issue, but even that, I've cut back more. As for that cleanse, I've taken The Cleaner (detox) on & off since August. They have a 7-day and 14-day cleanse. It comes with a diet plan, with no meat.

I must say, that cleanse is the most effective one that I've used. It knocks off about 5-7 lbs in a week's time...not bad at all. I JUST finished the 14-day cleanse this past Friday. You should give it a shot.

Cool! The instructions suggest that you take the first 4 tablets on the evening of your first day, then take 4 in the morning and 4 in the evening for the remainder of the days. You'll end up taking your last 4 pills on the evening of your last day.

My schedule for it: Ill take 4 pills on a Friday evening (around 6 or 7 PM), and end up taking my last 4 pills on the next Friday. Beware, the first 2-3 days are CRAZY! Just be within 5 minutes of a toilet (hence why I start on the weekend). By the beginning of the week, I'm usually fine and Im able to gauge my restroom breaks.

Trust me, it knocks off about 5-7 lbs EASILY...as it cleans you liver, colon, intestines, and the rest of the major organs. I have the list of food to eat while taking it, if I decide to eat anything close to what I consider meat, I'll eat fish. Lol

In the morning, I'll eat a bowl of Special K cereal, take 4 pills, down a bottle of water, eat a banana or an apple on the way to work, and wash it down with another bottle of water. Anytime I take the pills, I ALWAYS follow it with two bottles of water (very effective).

I will upload a pic of the menu to select your foods from. It's not a bad diet at all...besides, it's only for 1 week....cant be that bad.

Found out a few weeks ago, that my blood pressure wasn't the issue after all...it directly related to anxiety. Hopefully I can get off this damn BP medication, because the doc prescribed some shit for anxiety...needless to say, the side effects are worse than my damn symptoms.

I'm not a huge believer in medication, being that the mind and body work together more than we know. If I have anxiety problems, then it's best to work on the anxiety with some daily skills, so I wont forget to take my meds one day, and freak out. See what I mean? I'm not the one to be dependent on meds.

I just realized how much I DON'T relax. As a matter of fact, I also realized that I dont know HOW TO relax...weird, right. I've been reading a few books over the past few weeks, one of which teaches you how to "quiet your mind". I must say, it's a bit helpful.

not sure how i missed this one...

a few simple tricks....

breathe!!! you'd be surpised how many ppl forget to do this simple thing when shit starts to pop off. someone says something annoying...your dog shitted on the carpet...etc..etc... take a step back....count to 10 and breathe!!! i usually take 3 deep breaths and approach whatever the issue is with the serenity prayer mindset. works wonders.

practice meditation daily....again, that's all about breathing and just sitting still. quieting your mind...you'll find once the waters are calm...u can see deeper.

i'm not a huge fan of doctors or medicine. i believe that everything we need to heal is already within us....the mind especially. so sometimes when i feel a cold coming on....or something like that....i tell myself, i don't have time to be sick...and i tell that sickness to leave my body. i know it sounds foolish....but it's worked for me. i've heard and read about other ppl who have used similar techniques and they work.

try relaxing music.

saw this on a fb post:

if you are depressed you are living in the past.

if you are anxious you are living in the future.

if you are at peace you are living in the present.

I'm convinced that you're Mr. Miyagi or some shit. laugh.gif

Anyhow, I've learned to breathe over the past couple of months. As you mentioned, people forget to do it, and it's the EASIEST thing in the world, lol. I came to the realization, that I simply don't know how to relax, regardless of what I thought I knew.

A close friend of mine was hospitalized last month, after passing out at work. She's known to stress about everything, and it's happened before at work. This time, it was serious, she has a conversion disorder (mostly paralysis), which numbs the left side of her body and messes up her speech. I talked to her on the phone, and I swore she had a stroke, I mean her speech was horrible.

After about 2 weeks, she was fine. She's attending therapy and has learned to cut down on stressful shit. At least this is what I know at the moment, but I haven't much more about it. When that news hit me, I knew immediately, that I had to start letting some old stuff go and learn to deal with new stuff. I wont lie, its cool, learning how to deal with people and everyday stressors...besides, I work with counselors and therapists all day, no reason why I shouldn't know these things. Lol

This time, it was serious, she has a conversion disorder (mostly paralysis), which numbs the left side of her body and messes up her speech. I talked to her on the phone, and I swore she had a stroke, I mean her speech was horrible.

After about 2 weeks, she was fine. She's attending therapy and has learned to cut down on stressful shit. At least this is what I know at the moment, but I haven't much more about it. When that news hit me, I knew immediately, that I had to start letting some old stuff go and learn to deal with new stuff. I wont lie, its cool, learning how to deal with people and everyday stressors...besides, I work with counselors and therapists all day, no reason why I shouldn't know these things. Lol

That' EXACTLY what I thought it was, but it was confirmed as conversion disorder. Fuck that, that's just too damn close to a stroke to me. I've been pretty good about monitoring my salt intake, since last December. I'm doing better with sugars as well. I'm not the one to sit around and eats sweets or guzzle sodas, but I do consume alcohol.

On days that I know I'm going to drink (sometimes days prior), I cut back (or completely stop) drinking sports drinks (which I can't live without) or anything sweet. I've learned to "pick my poisons", so to speak. No need for me to sit around and drink Gatorade AND alcohol...just too much sugar and calories.

You'd be surprised at how many people don't know how to properly read a nutrition label, I was one of those people, not long ago. I've cut back from store brand foods as well. I'll pick up two brands and check the salt and sugar levels. Whichever brand is lower in the two, I'll choose that one. Portion control has been my problem for the last 3 years, but again, December 2012 changed my perspective on a lot of that.

It's all about "cutting back" first, but people automatically get "cold turkey" in their mind, when the word "diet" comes up. As of the last few months, I'll double up on veggies and cut my startches, and man, those cleanses ALWAYS give me relief...I do a week-long cleanse at least once a month, and I'll occasionally do some LBS (lower bowel stimulant) on days that I consume a lot of meat (more so red meat).

"The Cleaner" for Men (and Women) has been a life changer for me, seriously. Dude, leaving meat out of your diet, and only consuming those capsules, plenty of water, fruits, veggies, and fibers, along with some cardio, will EASILY knock off 7-10 lbs. I'm not talking bullshit lbs, I'm talking HARD lbs. That cleanse got me out of the 200's (from 208 to 197) and from the 190's down to the 180's, which I wake up about 183 lbs or less in the morning, every morning.

That stress is NO JOKE! It's crazy because sometimes, we don't even know that we're stressing, it just comes up out of nowhere. I've successfully stepped down from "chronic stresser", to "occasional stress"...and I have all hopes that I'll step down to the "I don't give a fuck stage"...I heard those people have it easy nowadays. laugh.gif
