... I needed to spend some time with family more, and electronics less. I hope to be back on here more. At least once in a while!
Hey Cheese….I understand your situation. For me, family and my health comes before anything to do with toys, wheels, and social media.I believe cell phones and social media can become an OCD quickly and can be just as addictive as drugs or gambling.If I had a daughter, my focus would be on her total and complete mental and physical health. I believe diet is a major factor in almost all health issues.Unfortunately, is seems easy to spend WAY too much time on sites like this.Social media today has good, bad, and very ugly.Stay focused on your family. You can always pop on here for a few minutes to get a little personal distraction and temporary escape from your reality.Living on the coast comes with some corrosive air. Of course, keeping a vehicle garaged or covered to help reduce moisture or condensation and help to prevent rust. Bald tires….. No Bueno!All the best to you and your family. Gnarls.
Salt air? Try Kauai...(And this is the only forum I still love)
I have had to take a step back from electronic devices for a while. NO, I did not get in trouble with anything. I needed to spend some time with family more, and electronics less. Kids growing up too fast!!! Two in College, (well one for sure, the second not sure if going back) and a beautiful daughter who is struggling with Extreme Anxiety, and Depression. And a wife who is addicted to social media!!
Maybe your daughter needs a Toyota 4x4 of her own, or perhaps she can help you with yours? I'm actually being serious. Speaking from personal experience, having a project vehicle to take exploring, repair, and modify has been a big confidence builder for me, and I do think that might help your daughter with her anxiety and depression. If she isn't interested in cars, perhaps there is another hobby she could find to enjoy, e.g. mountain biking, photography, etc.? (FWIW, I teach mathematics, and I often spend as much time counseling students as I do answering homework questions. I've found one of the best ways to help students through their anxiety and depression is to remind them to take time for a break from their studies, to pursue things they enjoy and are good at.)
Thank you, we are learning about her anxiety and depression right beside her. She is very talented at singing and art. We have several painted canvas hanging around hour house. She is getting better at dealing with it. But she still has days she just can't deal.
Hi Cheesemaker,At the risk of being overly inquisitive...I'm guessing the daughter your are referring to is in her 20s? Also, I assume professional medical treatment is ongoing. I'm curious if her DIET has been seriously discussed by any medical professional? Some of you probably know I'm a healthy diet advocate and I am very much against most pharmaceutical drug treatment for many illnesses and health related issues.I'm not advocating anything, I do lots of research for my own family health issues and I'm just curious what you have experienced and learned.If you want to discuss further off-line, please PM me.Thank you.Gnarls.
thanks for the smooch I miss you too !
What tire size are you running cheesy?
