Picture of my home

I did mention in the past about posting pictures of my apartment so here it is .This is the room where my visitors or my working partners sit around where we discuss our work or to just chill out. My parents comes in at times to clean up the mess after I had messed it up from the coffee and food droppings I left behind . As for today I will remain in this room where I can feel serene before going out for dinner with my parents. As for the other rooms it is used for my music and being not furnish yet, it will not be appropriate to take shots of them. I am staying on the ground floor so I can have a view of the common garden. It nice but not to my liking .By the way I am now posting with my friend’s PDA in this room now because I am too lazy to go upstairs where my workstation is to post.

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal = Seizure

I was prescribed Epilim (SOUDIUM VALPROATE) after telling the doctor I wanted to stop my addiction from benzos. I know that stopping short acting benzodiazepines especially under the hypnotic category like Midazolam ,Alprazolam ,Nimetazepam,Flunitrazepam ect ect... abruptly may cause one to throw a fit. And he knows that also(the doctor) .SO I was prescribed this(Sorry for my silly way of writing as I am still having bad Psychological withdrawals) .He told me I had to fight over the anxiety that will surface during the initial part of the withdrawal but will subside after a few weeks. "You can rough it out because you are still young" that what he said.

I olny wish he could be more understanding and have a tapering regiment for me.

The plastic blister pack is covered with aluminum.To maintain the freshness of the medication .

This is a close-up view of the pill. AS you can see it comes in a nice appealing purple Color coating.

I used a knife to split to pill out of curiosity and found out that the ingredient is white.

Days till I get my Nikon camera 15

From the front View the camera one may think it is a nomal point and shoot camera

Looking for the back it is a clear cut disposable one I am having.

I had sent my Nikon camera for repairs and could only have it claim two weeks later. Really feel so awkward without it. Anyway I am using a disposable Kodak MAX one-time-use camera as a back up for my photo taking. And as for my digital camera , my brother in law needed it for his personal use so I had to lend it to him . All I only have now is a disposable film base camera and a low end digital webcam for myself.

The Ugly sight of some cab drivers

I was returning form lunch today when I met a woman that was in a wheelchair trying to flag a Cab. I notice that in that short ten seconds two taxis stop beside her and once noticing she was alone with on one assisting her they drove off immediately! I was shock and really felt for her that how some Singaporean cab drivers reacted to a person that needed assistances. I could read through her face that she was indeed very disappointed and frustrated and felt sorry for her.
I do not know how long she has been waiting, and what makes things worst was it took place during a lunch hour where it’s the easiest time of the day in a location I was in to catch a cab and no Cabbies wanted to help!
All in all I found out that the cab drivers were only too lazy to carry her foldable wheelchair into and out of their boot. I also realize that she needed no assistance in getting into a cab! But only needed some help from someone to put her wheelchair into and out of a vehical.

P/S Her wheelchair is ones with wheels that can be remove and smaller than the normal ones you see in hospitals

Update:She called me the following day to thank me asking my address saying she wanted to sent a card.I told her it wasn’t necessary but she insisted .
What an appreciative Lady ! :)

My friend Chris ask me to go to Orchard today but I decided to stay in my parent’s house and not go . I don’t have a habit of going to Orchard during the first day of the week, where I sometimes go during weekdays.Buy the way my Nikon FM2 has been damage(again) by fungus due to using it on the beach last week.It was used to take shots of my sister’s Golden Retrieval.He only likes to swim so I had to get into the shallow waters for a good shot of him.
Anyway I manage to take a picture of my sister’s pet dog using a Point and shoot digital Camera for posting.

Update:I manage to scan a photo of the picture I took with my flim camera after developing . AS the file size is large I chose the best picture I took.

From left is my elders sister Eunice with her husband Noah

  • talk aboult feelings
  • listen better
  • be assertive
  • refuse substances
  • handle criticisms
  • develop close relationships
  • improve social support networks

Intrapersonal skills taught include how to:

  • manage thoughts aboult drugs
  • be aware of anger and manage it well
  • cope with mood swings and implulses
  • sove problems
  • schedule activities
  • use relaxtion techniques

Two further areas that must not be forgotten are:

  • delayed gratification

Many addicts tend To focus on the pleasurable and immediate effects of the drug, and ignore its destructive long term consequences .The desperate search for short-term relief to stressful situation can lead the addict to downplay the danger of drugs.
