For everyone, no matter WHAT else you are doing I highly recommend meditation (call it what you want) skilled relaxation to help cope with all the other problems. Please allow yourself to be nice to yourself. It does even out the mood swings & helps you cope with the panic. It does not diminish the efficacity of any treatment, costs nothing, & is easy to begin. If any one else has enjoyed any benefits from these calming minutes, please let us know. I feel like I’m alone out here.
Re: Jenny Jones trial. Jonathan Smits was judged guilty of murder in the second degree. Here in Detroit there has been some discussion of the implications of Graves disease & his inability to handle the excess stress. The jury was deadlocked for a long time, with most opting for premeditated murder, but after a while they agreed that 2nd degree was more appropriate.
