I recall my mother, Irma Grambitter, telling me that she watched her Aunt, Uncle and her three cousins shot to death because they were Bible Students of Jehovah's Witnesses in Kaiserslautern, Germany during the World War II; she was approximately ten years of age. A soldier warned her and her brother that if they cried, then they would be shot next. Neither of them dropped a tear. I grew up reliving her nightmares; later taking care of her until she took her last breath a few years ago; having passed away with Alzheimers, she died of pneumonia.
I understand your pain. I'm going thru something similar in my life right now. I am being stalked by a psychopathic killer whom has developed psychic abilities. A situation you only see in the movies. I joined a religious organization where the head was developing himself spiritually we were told but it turns out to be of the nature of the occult. They have already killed my son and I'm being threatened. My mother and daughter as well. I can not breath hard or say wrong thing or energy is being pushed into our body at a tremendous force.
Diane, your work is so important. Many people struggle mentally, and, yet it is still considered a taboo subject among many. We must care for our minds, as well as, our physical and spiritual selves. Thank you for sharing and, most importantly, thank you for your services!
Massage therapy is a great part of my life! It helps me with PTSD, Fibromyalgia, Cervical Dystonia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Chiropractic care is part of my therapy, as well. Together, they keep me from invasive things like drugs, surgeries, etc.
Massage used to be a no-no for cancer patients. That's changed, so much so that there are now specialists trained in oncology massage and the National Cancer Institute has sponsored a DVD to teach family members simple techniques they can do at home.
