I know all about the mid life crisis stuff.  

I'm glad there are some things that might help you physically.  As there is probably a physical component to it.  Plus, have you changed any eating habits lately?

But I know what it's like to be about your age and be like, "what am I doing here?"  "How did I get here?"  Etc. Etc.  I'm sure some of those questions come up because of physical things we're dealing with.  And some mental, emotional or spiritual.  

I don't have much advice other than that I understand.  And I think it's rather normal to go through a phase like that.  When my kids were little, and I was newly married, I spent the better part of a decade running around with my head cut off, working my rear end off in so many ways, not really thinking about a whole lot.  Not saying I never thought, but my general overall deal was "work" mode.  And "go" mode.  And then after I got sick 5 years ago, it was like I needed a time to slow down, think about things, reflect, smell the roses, get better.  Etc.  I'll probably go through a different phase in the future.  But I think a lot of us at this age experience this in some way or another.  Well, at least I did.  And I know some others my age that are dealing with this type of a deal too.  Not all.  But some.  Maybe it will hit some others later.  I don't know.  

Either way, it's OK, you're not alone.  And you are special.  You didn't goof anything up.  More than likely you are right where you are supposed to be.  That doesn't mean there isn't something different on the horizon.  New lessons to learn, adventures to be had, etc.  But it's OK.  You are OK and everything else is OK, no matter what the news tells you.  I'll say a prayer for you.

J.J.

Hope you sleep better!!!

My poor B- always had S.A.D. because he was so hard on himself, and poor, but STUBBORN.
Do not "B"-eat yourself up. Just "B" what you are supposed to "B."

I miss my B. Oh, well. There will have to "B" a replacement for him.

Thanks - much more to look at tomorrow- nice to know I am not alone.

Well it 21/ 9 in the evening - I am actually tired  
so I´ll turn computer off in a while - drink a cup of chamomile tea and go to bed.

I have been gardening today - and it always helps my mood so much; sunlight, physically activity- doing something with a purpose and all the pretty green stuff.

where have you placed your swami?

concentrate on those SFs for a bit....lay off the black dots and neutrals

visualize how these act as medicine
remember the gut/brain/thyroid axis?

take your dog out for a walk daily

Thanks.
I am actually doing really well with my swami in general
- however I have cut down on my meat lately -due to bad economy.  

I need to remember to take Sienna on long walks- you are right   always works amazing.
Last 2 nights I have slept well.
I have been very busy outdoor( garding or doing work on my house)
I have turned off my computer 1 hr before bedtime)
I have had a cup of chamomille tea while I read before bed.

= no twisting and turning - no feeling of panic - no wild racing mind at bed time

I'm not making light Henriette Bsec, I've just always found laughter to be the greatest enemy of anxiety. I have this old book of bawdy limericks that I keep at hand. Oftentimes, right before I head into what is sure to be a fairly tense business meeting, I'll read a limerick at random. During the meeting, I visualize standing up unannounced and reciting the limerick I just read. Imagining the looks on their stunned faces always helps me to keep things in perspective, even whilst others are acting out in anger or frustration, and I remember not to take things too seriously ... even when others are. All the best to you.

Be careful of the melatonin, if you take it often, your body will stop producing it.

Laughter is always good, sometimes I just laugh because otherwise I will cry

Well I can get melatonine in DK so that rules it out  
I think chamomile and melisse tea is a safer option

Wow, Henriette, I didn't know you were still unemployed.      If I have tea before bed, I'm up going to the bathroom which defeats the purpose.  I usually have a subliminal Sleep Soundly tape I play that most of the time works and I'll take 1 mg of melatonin, but it makes me groggy in the morning. Anything I take to help sleep usually has that effect.  Exercise is very important. If I don't get exercise, I sleep poorly as well.  

You're an RN aren't you? I know you said you have a degree.  Is there no jobs out there at all?  
If you can get some investors, you could open a BTD store ...maybe a small business grant?  I found the best way to get into a large institution, is to go in as a Temp. You could sign up with a Temp agency and they send you to different places. If you like the job and they like you, you can get hired easier than if you just applied. This way if you work as a Temp, you'll at least be actively working. Companies don't like to hire people who are out of work a long time...because you're out of the loop.

Can you order melatonin through the mail? Or, is it banned in DK?

Yep unemployed.
I have two degrees
BA in prehistoric Archeology and a Teacher degree ( Geography and Danish)
I really don´t want to go back teaching it left me with a huge burn out/ stressed situation- that I first realised I had this spring ( yep - some B´s are really good at procastinting and avoiding seeing things   )
I would love to do some work were I write, research or maybe doing some counselling.- I am very good with people
That is the advice I got on the unemeplyment course.

I have decided that I´ll take some temp jobs at the nursing home  later ( no I am not RN
I HAD decided NOT to return- it is hard work and I am paid a ridicoulous pay - but I really need extra money. However the whole danish work situation are  
There are so many unemeployed teachers, caregivers etc  
The new teachers have an unemployment rate at almost 60 %  

Melatonin is prescription drugs - and is hard to import- however I don´t need it right now

Thanks for your concern
I have decluttered most of my house today - so lets see if some good fens shui

Some of sage tea's benefits seem to be enhanced during the waning phase of the lunar cycle, culminating with the arrival of the new moon.

Oh, that's why I thought you were an RN! Because you work in a nursing  home!   Well, you could change your career...train for something else.. ?? Like computers or go into sales. B's are "people" people.  I know exactly what you mean. My son has a hard time accepting things until he doesn't have a choice. He's a very stubborn Capricorn.  I also see that you could work in gardening..grow plants, maybe mushrooms and have a stand to sell them or at a Farmer's Market?  Apply for a government grant and open a coffee shop?  Are you sleeping in your success direction? That would be the best direction.  My feng shui teacher said that's the best direction out of all 4 to sleep in. My entire childhood, I slept in my loss or frustration direction! No wonder I didn't do well in school!

I actually sleep in my relationship direktion( west) - find it so impractical to sleep in south/west= sucess.
Actually Yesterday a very intersting job turned u in my mail.
I´ll try and see if I can get that ;
Making materials for kids about recycling - organic living ´ etc..
I would really love it- it is teamwork and I love to research things - so cross your fingers.
