George



What Is Wrong With Him?

Well, for one thing, all he really likes to do is watch movies. At the Apple Valley Library, he watches movies.
  • He checked out volunteering. Didn't like that. 
  • He used to love looking at flowers in bloom. Not now.
  • RVing used to be his main thing. Now that seems to be too risky.

  1. George, I think you are just in a little funk. Happens to everyone at times. You have a lot of living to do, so there is no rush to find your next passion or re-discover an old one.

    I really think once you get into Jojoba Hills, you will have so much to do that you will really be active again.

    Do not let this time get you down. Fight through it and come out the other side stronger.

    All the best.

  2. Might want to check out your adrenals. Some of your symptoms align- ie forgetfulness, tired, decision making etc. Plenty of things on youtube discussing that. I'm doing it. Lugols solution (iodine supplement) and selenium along with diet changes. Good adrenals lead to more physical and emotional pep and a grounded mentality. worked for me.

  3. Take a roadtrip George. WITHOUT scampy. Just spend a night in a hotel.

    1. Hi Andrew,

      Your "trip" suggestion is really a good one.

      However, I believe that in a little while, I may be able to do that trip with Scampy.

      Just got to get my mind around that!

  4. It sounds to me that you are depressed which is a medical condition. It might be time to let a doctor evaluate you. There might be something your body is missing. Don't let it slide. Good luck

    1. Hi Vera,

      Yes, I may be a bit down. But with all that has happened, I may have cause for that.

      Gotta hang in there!

  5. Please see a doctor and tell him exactly what's going on in your life. Don't let things continue as they are. You don't want to let this take you down to the point where Jojoba Hills becomes overwhelming. Hoping you'll do what you can to live a content life now, leading to your best future possible. All the best, George!

  6. Congratulation George, you recognize you have a problem. How you going to fix it?

    Me? I would see a MD to see if it's physical, or a mental health care professional to help figure out what's got me in this funk or maybe both. For you? I don't know; I don't live in your skin.

    Good Luck!

    1. Hi Judy,

      Thank you for your comment.

      It's been my experience to just tough my way thru stuff like this.

    2. I found much to my aggravation I can't always just tough it out. Usually when I finally say 'uncle' I start finding my way out of the abyss of blackness. I have discovered for me just counting my blessings every evening as I fall to sleep seems to really helps keep the abyss of blackness from swallowing me so often.

  7. When you get to jojoba Hills, everything will change. You will be surrounded by like-minded people and will able to put your skills to work in the shop.
    On the mean time, just keep on keeping on.

    1. Hi Ed, Carol,

      I'll just have to be patient and wait to get to the top of Jojoba Hills' wait list.

  9. George, time to get off your butt and do something. Even if it is wrong, just do it. Life is too short, to not to something.

  11. Just make sure you continue to go do your workouts on a regular schedule. If you can't seem to do that, it's time to go to the Dr.

  12. My parents died while I was still in high school and only an elderly granny to care for us (she was senile). Anyway, I was hyperventilating and afraid to be alone...I thought I was going crazy. I went to see a psychologist and told him my problem and thought I was going crazy. He looked at my chart and said 'You had your first baby three months ago...you are experiencing post partum blues' I was astound at such news. It's amazing what we learn when we seek help :-)
