you are so funny, honestly I giggled at your howling at the moon !!! Fact, humans and animals do go through changes when there is a complete full moon... the word luna translates to crazy !!! the word lunatic comes from Luna...so go figure !! Normally it is when the full moon takes place...my dog for example barks his head off and runs around after his tail.. as for me, well I'm just nuts full time, so I can't help you there !!! lots of love to you xoxoxoxo
Well the moon controls the tides on Earth so why can't it control our emotions. I have never heard of it but you make me interested in researching it.
I think many things cycle with the moon. People don't often mention it because they are thought to be kookie. Interesting fact......People that have a tooth pulled on a full moon are 75% more likely to get a dry socket. I personally have never had the patients to follow the cycles and my mood changes, but sounds like theres something to it.
Just watch out for growth of facial hair . lol OW OW OWWWWW. (that was suppose to be howling at the moon)
Interesting theory...you'll have to keep track of it and let us know!!!
I know when I worked in the operating room...we used to go up to OB Labor and Delivery and do their c-sections......when you were on call and it was a full moon you always got called in the middle of the night for c-sections..it never failed... LOL
so i think there may be something to the cycles of the moon....
What's the moon doing now? I had mad anxiety last week and only moderate anxiety this week. I guess the better question is, "What's next week going to be like?"
I found that my anxiety is really tied to my sleep also- 1 or 2 bad nights of sleep will skyrocket my anxiety level the next day. Have you noticed that?
Congrats on your 60 days!!! that is AWESOME
you are an inspiration to many others...keep working it!!!
I deffinately think the phases of the moon can have an effect on people. Interesting. I wonder when would be a better time to do withdrawels, full moon or not? Would one or the other make it easier? Some one needs to do some research.
Not me, I'm tired now. OWOOOOOO
i think the yukon in winter is daylight 24 hrs a/day no?....i think i will pack the van and move there because you have scared me...i'd rather deal with grizzly paws than the paws you're talking about....you mean i'm not fixed yet?!!! doh!
its like...wow didnt know that when we get over the WDs there is still more to come! wow...the story just continues to unfold...I have become very aware of this after WDs but really guys....I never knew about all this PAWS ****! ok....flu is done so where are the kudos? LOL
CONGRATS on being flu free....how many days ??? LOL
Ever been to ER on a full moon. Things are usually crazier.
It was 60 days on the nose when I got hit like a brick with depression. Didn't pay too much attention to cycles before that but it did cycle. Good weeks and bad.
PAWS info is on the Health Pages now too.
Could it possibly be a self-fulfilling prophecy?? Just something to ponder.
I'm laughing as I write this because I knew I'd sound a little nuts so I'm attaching a cut and paste excerpt from the article I read. It's actually fairly easy to find if you google "PAWS withdrawl"
Here is the section that caught my attention:
"Exerpted From "Staying Sober" By: Terence T. Gorski
with additions by: Lee Jamison
..... Recent research is showing that for some recovering people the symptoms of PAW often occur at regular "moon cycle" intervals and without apparent outside stressors. Often those 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, and 1 & 2-year sobriety dates seem to be "triggering" times for PAW symptoms to increase".
Oh and the moon is getting bigger. Half way to full right now and I've been getting better as it has. Coincidence??? Where's Moulder and Scully?
That might explain me feeling worse this week too. Jut achy and now tired. When will the full mooon be done?!!
I am at the PAWS stage also - never even considered that the moon may be involved....it does powerful things to tidal action - the human body is largely made up of water - ???? - I am sure that stranger things have occurred. Will lining my hat with aluminum foil help?
