    The End Game

    Thanks. Enjoying the lack of a mortgage, paid the tax and done. Interest on that money just kept sucking the value of the payments I was making, tax was a one shot hit that is still stinging but I know it was just the one and done. My company has managed my 401k since I started there last...

    Last movie or tv series you watched?

    This post was inspired by @Freddyt I watched p1 of the f1 race at the Montreal villaneuve (sp?) circuit. The canadiens really show up, there were more people watching p1 than there were last week for the race at Azerbaijan.

    Getting "better" at EMDR as a patient

    @Freida first-good to see you on here I just dropped in to add that I now know what diminishing returns are all about with EMDR and unlike you: I have lost some faith in it. I think of it now as guided self hypnosis at best, probably because it has been online with bilateral music and Vagas...

    I Realize That I

    I realize that my reactions to things that have happened are completely OK, it took a whole lot of bad things to get my reactions to be so strong, and now that they are I have to accept that anyone that hasn't lived it isn't going to get it and it follows that their reactions are completely OK...

    Atheist unite!!

    chose my beliefs. My pragmatic thought processes started pretty early in life, and in spite of the applied efforts of a very practiced in the art religious organization, I stayed with my core disbelief of all things not proven. I don't believe in 12 volts after the battery dies, what else do you...

    Atheist unite!!

    wow. As an ex firefighter I take arson very seriously and hope that the severity of the punishment for that act alone keeps him out of danger for a long time. If anything this brainiac should be kept away just for his amazing display of stupidity: Setting an arson fire? Dumb. Doing it as a...

    One Thing That Made You Smile Today?

    One Thing That Made You Smile Today?

    For a very long time I thought I had been putting off replacing a bathroom faucet even though I had the replacement in a box in the garage nagging at me whenever I saw it. I live out in the sticks just a bit so you buy two of anything you know will need to be replaced someday and even though the...

    The End Game

    @Soleil thanks but not a bankruptcy problem at all. I pay all my bills and have extra already, I just don’t want to think about a market crash and the resulting loss of all of that money set aside anymore. Been getting closer and closer to this for a few years now, started when president...

    The End Game

    thanks all stress reduction plan no 1: pay off the mortgage. A lump sum withdrawal from a 401K will cause extreme income tax headaches this year, but balanced against having a monthly expense that is mostly interest to pay for something that I could lose if I don't make the monthly payment is...

    The End Game

    Baseball fans know what the end game is. Your team is behind, you are getting into the last at bats you have, you start substituting players that can't play defense when they are in the field but get on base when at bat, you pull a good pitcher early to get the closer in and keep the opposing...

    Not Realizing You've Been Triggered

    I totally get everyones opinions on this subject, been there and lived through most all of them. Mood is one thing and I can generally tell you why a mood is good or bad, even why it is bad and how to make it better or why it is good and how to keep it that way. Triggered is another animal. I...

    Ego same as inner critic?

    What @Friday said. In practice, I definitely hear my father as my strongest inner critic (in his voice, true to his style) but that one voice represents so much of what my ego is trying to appease, that often any criticism leveled, whether from within or without, is heard by my ego as just...

    Getting "better" at EMDR as a patient

    EMDR has always been a series of starts and stops for me. I should be pretty stabilized and getting "good at it" but I think my daily mood, events before the session, the counselor's level of adherence to what a standard session "is", and probably the mood of the counselor and how I interpret...

    Physical Pain

    Sorry to hear it, complete empathy for your situation. Mine starts as spasms and muscle tension achiness and the spirals into debilitating neck and shoulder pain. The water works for me but it is the relaxing calming effect more than just being in water. I could probably get to the same place...
