Myths and Facts about Mental Illness If I feel like it, I can take more medications than prescribed. Mental Illness is always hereditary. Taking medications is a cure for mental illness. Denial is part of a mental illness. Crack cocaine can bring on psychotic symptoms. Family members and friends have important input about medications and symptom management. Coming into the hospital again means you're a failure. Mental illness is contagious. If I'm depressed, beer will make me feel better. Mental Illness means you can not be productive. Family and close friends don't need to be educated about the symptoms when involved with someone with a mental illness. You are not able to work at home or a t a job if you have a mental illness. Mental Illness means you have no control over your life. I can withdraw my medications without medical supervision. Anti-anxiety medications can easily be taken for a lifetime. 2002 Wellness Reproductions ad Publishing LLC

from Dr.Lydia Tansinsin

Once upon a time there was a rich King who had
four wives...
He loved the 4th wife the most and adored her with rich robes and treated her
to the finest of delicacies He gave her nothing but the best...
He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to
neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for
He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind,
considerate and patient with him. Whenever the
King faced a problem, he
could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult

The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great
contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not
love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of
One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short.
He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, I now have four wives
with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone."
Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I loved you the most, endowed you with
the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying,
will you follow me and keep me company?"
"No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another
Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I loved you all my life. Now that
dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No!",
replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to
His heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and
you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep
me company?" "I'm sorry, I can't help you out this
time!", replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only walk with
you to your grave." Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the
King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no
where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was
very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved,
the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the

In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:

Our 4th wife
is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish
in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all
go to others.

Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been
there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

And our 1st wife is our Soul. Often neglected in pursuit of wealth,
power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing
that will follow us where ever we go...
Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us
that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us throughout

Thought for the day:
Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect
position to pray...
Pass this on to someone you care about - I just
Being happy doesn't mean everything's
perfect. It means you've
decided to see beyond the imperfections...

NEW YORK - The Philippine Consulate General in New York welcomes the signing into law of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 last 17 February 2009.

Under Section 1002 of ARRA, the service rendered by the Filipino World War II veterans is now recognized as active military service in the U.S. Armed Forces for the purpose of the law.

A Filipino Veterans Equity Compensation Fund has been established under the law and an eligible Filipino World War II veteran who is a U.S. citizen is entitled to a lump sum benefit of US$15,000. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) will process payments to eligible Filipino World War II veterans.

The Philippine Consulate General encourages all Filipino World War II veterans based in Northeast U.S.A. to inquire about and submit their claims for lump sum benefits at any state or local office of the U.S. DVA. END.

Old Age, I decided, is a gift.

I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be.
I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray hair or a flatter belly. As I've aged, I've become more kind to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I don't chide myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not making my bed, or for buying that silly cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so avant garde on my patio. I am entitled to a treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

Whose business is it if I choose to read or play on the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon?

I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 60&70's, and if I, wish
I will walk the beach in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves with abandon if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set.
They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And I eventually remember the important things..

Sure, over the years my heart has been broken..
But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.

I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, to answer your question, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become.

I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting about what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day. (If I feel like it)
