Managing Our Fear In Disasters

Pin It
 What do you fear most?  Is it being home alone at night?  Is it a big hairy bug?  Or is it the footsteps behind you while you're walking home at night?  Big or small, we all have dealt with fear in our lives.  For me, ever since I woke up one morning with a big centipede crawling on my face, the thought of those things lurking around in my bedroom has caused many sleepless nights.  During the last two years, my wife and I lived in Japan with my family and we had our fair share of centipede encounters (I'll merely say without exaggerating we killed nearly one hundred centipedes in the last two years and most of them were in our house!).  Thanks to these encounters, I learned a little bit about fear, how it works, and what we can do to manage them.

Before going into fear, you should know a few things about centipedes.  Centipedes are very aggressive meat eating bugs that come out at night to hunt for their food.  The ones we saw ranged from 2 to 6 inches long (I hope you can understand how difficult it is for me to write about this).  They love dark and damp areas with access to other bugs for food.  They usually have about 30 to 46 legs and have a pair of very sharp and venomous fangs.  Its poison is known to attack the lymph nodes and cause extreme pain and sometimes shock.   I will not post a picture here but you can certainly look it up if you're curious.  Now that you know, we can proceed to our main topic, fear.

Fear is a part of life
If you ponder your life's experiences most of us will quickly realize that fear has always been a large part of our lives.  Sometimes, it serves as a way to protect us from harm's way.

We had another successful and a very educational class today.   The topic was "Simple Home Remedies" taught by Kathy Crocker.  Kathy is a mother of seven, stepmother of four, and grandmother of sixteen.  Her youngest son is the reason for learning Alternative Medicines, Herbs, Essential Oils, Vitamins, and Minerals.  When her youngest son came down with C-dif, a contagious and sometimes deadly infection, which is caused by the destruction of the good bacteria in the intestines, she was told by the pediatrician she was not to give him any medicine.  Her son being very young at the time, thoughts of childhood illnesses ran through her mind.  She began to
