So that mega church owned by Joel Osteen hosted Kanye at the weekend. I am not sure why Kanye would go there but he did.

The full video of the event is on youtube. The first comment in the comment section gives you time stamps.

I was surprise by Kanye's reinterpretation of Say my name by Destiny's Child (gospel version).

Have a listen. I would be interested in hearing your views on the music and the event in general etc.

First step /forum/f25/first-step-2229033/ Wed, 20 Nov 2019 12:16:39 GMT
Hi everyone
I have struggled with anxiety for decades, before it was a recognised condition.
Everyday is a struggle, didn't realise I wasn't alone.

How are you liking the time change? /forum/f24/how-are-you-liking-the-time-change-2229029/ Wed, 20 Nov 2019 02:45:40 GMT
If you live in area observing time change to standard time, how are you liking it or not?

For me I actually don't mind it too much. It's helpful in a way, since when I get home from work I know I only have about an hour before dark. So I usually go for my evening walk/run early. Then when I get back I take a shower and it's still only about 7 PM, and I'm finished with dinner by 8:30. I mean, I can't believe it's only 9:40 right now even.

So generally, I've been getting to bed earlier, since it feels late and I'm usually tired out by 10-11 PM. And that means I wake up earlier which is nice, since I can lie in bed for a bit before I get up. Before the clocks moved back I didn't wake up until I really had to get out of bed for work.

Also last weekend I went to bed pretty early and Sunday I woke up at about 6:30 and just stayed in bed for a few hours reading, which was especially nice since it was quite cold.

On Friday nights it's been weird though, because I go to the gym after work and it was usually light for about an hour after I got done working out, then suddenly it's dark before I even get to the gym.

Information Overload /forum/f24/information-overload-2229027/ Tue, 19 Nov 2019 23:10:49 GMT
Does anyone get information overload?

There's just so much to take in in today's day and age, my brain just can't handle it sometimes. I've had it especially the past couple days, and a headache's come w/ it. I just want to go to a cabin in the woods for a week and just relax w/ nature.

This is why I don't have notifications on my apps.
I want to get an old-school analog watch & flip-phone so I can leave my smartphone at home.

question about parents /forum/f265/question-about-parents-2229025/ Tue, 19 Nov 2019 19:50:50 GMT
I'm in my late 20s and I have a issues. I never dated or lived away from home.

When in Toronto with my mom if I start to get upset (ie we walked a long way which is quite often in Toronto these days) and she starts to tell me if I don't shape up we will return home RIGHT now and except for my specialist appointment never go into Toronto again (and she knows how stir crazy I get here in this town I lived in for 29 years). I can't go into Toronto on my own without a "bodyguard" I can't even go into the exam room at a doctor's office on my own without one of the parents being there. It took me 3 years to get Dad to shut up in the exam room.

There was this one time about 2016 (back in those days when Mom and I went up to Stratford,Ontario for the plays we would have supper at Tim Horton's) well since we were saving money no one had told me until we were figuring out what to order that I learned I couldn't have Pop (it was Friday which is normally my "pop night" at home) and I was crying and Dad told me to shape up or I would get arrested- I didn't think I was that loud and I had a perfect reason to be upset right..since I have AS I need to be informed before of any new thing. I don't remember if I stuck with water I had brought from home and had pop at home. I mean why do they tell me not to hit them and yet they just teach me that I can hit when they hit me?

The parents brought the "arresting" thing up when we came back from Germany last month... we thought the Person Express was going to be wait and I heard Dad grumbling and I really hated that so I told Mom to stop his grumbling and supposedly I caused a scene but in my opinion it was THEM causing a scene (all I remember is somewhere in there I told Dad he can't tell me to grow up when HE didn't behave like a grown up earlier on the trip -I mean seriously 60+ year old storming off?) and they said if I don't shape up the staff at the station could have me arrested.

Does this sound abusive to your guys?

VistaGen Therapeutics plans phase III trials for Social phobia, in 2020
07 Nov 2019
VistaGen Therapeutics announces intention to achieve regulatory milestones for Social phobia by the end of 2020.
https://www.biospace.com/article/vis...iety-disorder/
Approval maybe 2020-2021!!!
SAD affects nearly 15 million Americans. Currently, there is no FDA-approved treatment that provides rapid-acting relief, and sedatives used off-label carry with them the risk of addiction and other significant side effects and safety concerns.

. “We are excited to be working with Pherin’s innovative team to develop and commercialize this medically and socially impactful treatment.

We are confident VistaGen will build upon our earlier clinical studies, which provided impressive evidence of rapid (10-15 minutes) anxiety reduction for subjects with SAD.

Can't wait!!!

Personally, I dont think so.

But you can definately improve onto it. For example, Im nearly better but I still get anxiety in general.

Its in our personality that lies our anxiety, it's not something we can change but we can definately control it.

Anyone disgree?

I just had my first therapy session. I finally found a therapist that I like! However, I just feel so depressed. I am getting chemistry help and my teacher knows I have anxiety. I get so scared when I am alone with her that my hands shake and I freeze-up whenever she asks me questions. I really want to trust her but I am too afraid to. I hate that I am not normal. I see everyone else in my class has friends and can talk to other people.

Is anyone losing coordination and hyper aware of body sensations /forum/f33/is-anyone-losing-coordination-and-hyper-aware-of-body-sensations-2229007/ Tue, 19 Nov 2019 00:34:54 GMT
I used to be well coordinated, but over the years I've loss body awareness and experience my body hyper extending. I can feel tissue, which I'm guessing is fascia moving through my sinus passages, tongue, jaw and through out the rest of my body. Has anyone else experienced anything similar or had physical issues?

On a side note my dentist said that I could have a form of elhers danlos.

* which are not team based sports?

I have so much difficulty with this. When I do cardio type activities I do not enjoy it and just can't wait for it to end.

I want to find some activities which are fun and exciting and I can build a better physique and have fun at the same time. I really hate team based sports and wouldn't consider giving them another try.
