Ernie's Fumbulous Titilation.

It's an award winning technique, designed by Ernest Grimshaw, a self-educated therapist based in Rochdale, who devised it when his 19 year old niece was having difficulty motivating herself to take driving lessons.

It involves a certain amount of physical contact, so it isn't for everyone, but those who have experienced it have found that it certainly gets them up and out before you can say "Do you mind, old chap?"


Ernest Grimshaw, therapist

Unfortunately, Mr Grimshaw is currently a guest of Her Majesty, for reasons which he is reluctant to discuss.

I can recommend other therapists who practise EFT, though. They don't tend to advertise in the phone book, although some of them do advertise in phone boxes.

Let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

Re: Depression Sufferers

I am listening to Chris Martin and the songs are making me feel depressed for some unexplained reason. What kind of depression would that come under?

A couple of years ago, my mother passed away and I listened to some music that really brought on sadness. I could not listen to it so listene3d to something else.

Here is another thought. Try to be kind to yourself. Try to understand yourself rarther than judging yourself negatively. You can learn how to deal with your state of mind but it does take time.

Re: Depression Sufferers

I should really wash my hair. I've been telling myself that for three hours now. This is ridiculous!

So why "should" you wash your hair. Who says? We all need to stop putting expectations on ourselves. We burnout from all of the expectations. Wash your hair when you are ready.

Most of have been living with too many shoulds and have toos in our lives. Start living life according to what you want to. Makes life a little easier.

A singer I love to hear is John Barrowman. His voice has a *I don't know what* which boost me when I'm going down.

Because I haven't washed it since Friday and that's absolutely disgusting.

Bertrand - my hair is one of the few things I like about myself, it's long, thick, shiny and more or less well-behaved. I would never cut it for purposes of practicality...

Re: Depression Sufferers

Hello,

A huge thank you to everyone for all the lovely uplifting and insightful posting on this thread, it has really touched me. I had a bad case of clinical depression which started almost exactly a year ago, and I have just arrived in Zürich from London with my husband who has a new job here. With the help of my psychiatrist, meds, therapy and yoga I got back onto the right track at the end of last year, and generally I am doing well at the moment. Moving to a new country is exciting but it's also terrifying, I am taking it a day at a time and concentrating on the nice bits where possible! You are all making me feel much better to know I am not the only one who has had this experience, thank you

Also, I have a quick question which I can't seem to find the answer to (sorry if it has already come up here and I have missed it). How much do prescriptions for meds like Prozac and Lamotrigine cost? I am trying to figure out health insurance premiums (eeeeek) and it would help to know how much it all costs. I have just about got to grips with the basics but knowing the drug costs would help to pick the right franchise (I think that's what it's called but please tell me where I'm wrong)!

Thank you, and best wishes to everyone for a good day today, Helen T

100 citalopram 20 mg are chf 90 and 100 seralin (zoloft) 50 mg are about the same.

Personally, if you think you will be using prescription meds and seeing docs regularly, i would go for the lower franchise you can always change it the following year. You'll pay 10% of your costs after the franchise up to a certain amount, but I don't know what it is exactly. I will from personal experience soon, just don't now.

Yeah, I know. Sometimes it's an effort to shove oneself into the shower. You might feel better after a wash, and if not you can always let it get dirty again.

And if your hair is something you're especially proud of, maybe caring for it will help you feel better.
