Beach Walk 537 – VIP Meme: Mind & Body Equal

I am just about over my cold – in time for “back to work” Monday.

Thinking about being sick in the body, then watching the movie Idiocracy, I realized we still deal with and address bodily ailments easier than we do mental ones. So one way I’m envisioning the future I want – as I was tagged by the VIP Meme Project – is to have better treatment for mental problems. Let’s face it; having a cold is nothing compared to many mental and emotional problems.

And if you find the holidays a little taxing on your mind or your body, check out the resources from the Buy Nothing Day project.

Be in Touch!


  1. Sorry to hear that your were sick and your feeling better! Hope your Thanksgiving was great! Miss all of you ! =ipo=

  2. Rox,

    Thanks for your compassionate contribution to the VIP Meme Project. You make an important suggestion, that we have more sympathy/empathy/compassion for those PEOPLE who struggle with mental health issues and, I hear you saying, that we look for opportunities to HELP them find solutions. (I think I need to take more walks!!!!)

    I hope we can take your suggestion to heart especially considering all those who will be newly suffering from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD as a result of exposure to the various wars and acts of violence all over the place.

    Would that there was a Post-Ecstatic Joy Disorder where events similar to happy times in the past fill you with overwhelming peace an bliss. Hmmm.

    A good resource for PTSD survivors, BTW, is my father’s web site:

    Thanks again!

  3. @Ipo – much mo bettah now thank you. 🙂

    @Heather – that joy thing? I actually do experience that in my life. I have moments (they can last for hours actually) where I feel complete and utter bliss, for NO REAL REASON. I may have known this as a very young child, but do not recall much of it at all for the next many decades. Thanks for the resource; my heart goes out to the war vets and I hope indeed that our collective beach walks energy can be supporting them energetically.
