Re: Ownership

Yes, Byron Katie and other enlightened people have discussed that in looking back at their own awakening, they became awake when they stopped believing their "own" thoughts. Thinking does happen no matter what we do, but we can dis-identify with the thoughts.

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Update: Today is my last day on this job. I have not told the administrator yet I am not coming back though. Each day was getting worse and worse and it was coming to the point, because of how the place is run, that I would lose my nursing license if I continued there and be open to a law suit. I li...

Re: New job and high anxiety

Sunnyjo,

What is it, exactly, you are anxious about? Do you know? Please listen and do the Mc2 Method below. It is free although they like a $8 donation. It will really help you understand the anxiety, accept it and dissolve it.

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Quinn,
The way you describe this makes so much sense to me. Yes, that is why I said what I said to Spikey because I have felt those feelings as well, even recently. But I never thought of it that way and that is exactly what it is!

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Spikey, The suicide part seems to concern most people, I don't really understand why though, it's just another compulsive thought. Only tends to crop up when I'm really unhappy and tired Well, yes, it is a concern. Not everyone thinks of suicide when they are unhappy and tired. It is a dark place to...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Spikey, Thanks for saying "it is OK to want this." I read your thread and it was very enlightening. I was concerned about the suicide part of it though. Like me, you found (find) it hard to remain conscious in such an insane environment. I sure do have mixed feelings about letting go though. On the ...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Mus3cho, I do not feel the way you do at all. I do not feel like the residents are family to me. I just can't get past the stench of the place, the artificiality of an institution, how the patients are treated like commodities, not to mention it is not the career path I have the least bit of interes...

Re: Help with Horrible Job

Spiky, I tried to find your job thread and cannot find it. Can you post it or send it to me? I am REALLY trying to stay awake during this event and trying to notice when I want to flee or escape- which is most of the time. I have decided to leave in 2 weeks and I am lining up some part time jobs- on...

Help with Horrible Job

I have a situation that is causing me a lot of emotional and even physical pain/illness/stress. I had been unemployed for about 6 months and my financial situation was (and still is) very dismal. I had also developed a serious illness and I still struggle with it and stress makes it worse. For the p...

Re: What the Heck is Happening To Me?

And rachel...for every post which appears in this little blue oasis, there are perhaps ten silent readers. Do not think that your public progress is without benefit to others...you are 'returning the favor.'
Andy - And, this is indeed, an oasis. Thank you.

Re: What the Heck is Happening To Me?

Thanks Garuda! You are right, I have the answers and your suggestions have been extremely helpful in the past months. They have led me towards other avenues and complement what I have found. I am getting answers very quickly now and I am starting to feel much better. People are entering my life who ...

Re: What the Heck is Happening To Me?

Garuda, I see what you are saying about being positive. It is hard to explain this kind of fatigue. It saps all my energy and I cannot do what I need to do to survive. I do not have the energy. My outlook really does change when I feel physically well. I feel calm, content and full of life. I am sur...

Re: What the Heck is Happening To Me?

Garuda, I went to another doctor today who practices functional medicine. He did a test that I have never had done before and determined my adrenal glands are insufficient. No wonder why I am so tired all the time! I kind of knew about this before but it really makes sense. I do not deal with stress...

Re: What the Heck is Happening To Me?

Thanks Garuda and Smiley.
I agree of course about being positive. My question, really, is my indifference now to all of this. It is as if I do not care what happens. It is very strange. That is what I was trying to get across.
