I couldn't help overhearing. I was eavesdropping.
i'm no relationship expert at all. in fact, my moniker is 'basement guy'. (but i'll save that for another thread)
but my older 'never a JW' sister is good at giving me advice. She told me that she believes in the wisdom of Louise Hay. So here's part of what my sis tells me in an email: "She wrote a book called "you can heal your body" (then a subsequent book "You can Heal Your Life" in which the first book is just a chapter!) and it covers every ailment from headaches to Aids and what's causing them. It's about the body "yelling" at us because something is going on in our lives and we're not paying attention. Most of the stuff is amazingly logical."
Not that this is about your body, Garret. But I think FayeD may be on to something. And maybe it would help to read some of Louis Hay's stuff or even watch a youtube of her. here's a sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmCLfVRxgtw
i guess she's helped a lot of people.
