SHOW NOTES: In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared. This episode is, “I am being subjected to ‘The Silent Treatment’ from someone. How do I handle it?”
This is a challenging subject as many of us would prefer to remain silent about “the silent treatment” (ouch). Yet, we cannot do so. We prefer our aggression served out loud so that we are able to hear it. When we are confronted with aggression masquerading as innocent activity, it is slithery and elusive. When exactly did it start? Are we imagining it? Is silence really deafening or are we simply too sensitive?
In this show we discuss ‘the silent treatment’ at work and in our personal lives. These two questions will be our guides irrespective of the setting.
1) How much are you invested in the person?
2) How much are you invested In the relationship?
What is ‘the silent treatment’? Maybe I am simply imagining it? Or, perhaps I am confused and mistake a quiet person for an act of aggression?
The silent treatment is a form of aggression. It is not your imagination. It is not you being too sensitive. It is not that some people are quiet (as quiet people are not entirely silent, they simply speak less loudly and less often).
Specifically, this behavior is passive-aggression. “Passive aggression is aggression by “not doing” — and deliberately not communicating or giving someone the “silent treatment” is one of the more common forms of it. And passive-aggression can be one tool in an arsenal of weapons that people use to manipulate and/or a

The Virtual gastric Band is a remarkable weight loss programme, and one which Sheila Granger has pioneered in the UK. As the name suggests, the system utilises the concept of a ""virtual” " gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within them to make changes to their lives. Many clients have benefited from The Virtual Gastric Band therapy.
So, what is it?
The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain you to be satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.
It is most definitely NOT a diet - we know that diets only work in the short term. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. As The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.
The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, but The Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment.

Billy H. reaches into his toolbox for another tool that maybe you've never heard of before....and it's not a hammer. Although depending on the addiction hammers are sometimes useful in recovery:)
Does your pet have dry eye? According to dvm360 Magazine , dry eye is a condition in which the tear production is decreased or absent. Common clinical signs associated with this disease are:
Squinting or holding the eye completely closed
A thick, sticky discharge that is often yellowish or greenish in color
Corneal cloudiness creating a dull sheen to the eye(s)
The superficial layers of the eye, including the cornea and conjunctiva, as well as the eyelids depend on tears for nutrition and protection. Without tears, these structures are highly susceptible to disease and trauma.
Some breeds of dogs, such as the American Cocker Spaniel, Miniature Schnauzer, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Pug, Westhighland White Terrier, and English Bulldog are predisposed to this disease due to genetic factors. This clinical disease is also seen in felines (i.e. Persians). The causes of dry eye include immune-mediated, congenital, infectious (canine distemper virus), drug-induced (sulfa antibiotics, Etogesic, topical atropine), surgery-induced (removal of the tear gland of the nictitans) and neurogenic. A significant amount of canine cases tend to be immune-mediated and maintenance treatment is required for the life of the pet. Parotid duct transposition surgery can be considered if medical treatment fails to significantly increase the tear production.
Our goals in the medical therapy of your pet are to: 1) Improve tear function, 2) prevent ocular disease and 3) improve patient comfort. Client compliance and follow-up visits are important in evaluating your pet’s response to the medical therapy.

Life Changing Insights with Dr. Alaln Simberg with his guest Hailey Rose
Hailey Rose is a 1985 college graduate and has been in Health Care for the past thirty years. She is currently a Clinical Nurse Educator and a Certified Diabetes Educator in Southeastern United States. She has two grown children and two step-children and resides in the city with her husband. By profession I am a registered nurse as well as a nutritionist and Diabetes Educator. I am a new author and I am promoting my book that is about overcoming life's obstacles against all odds. It is an inspirational true story. By nature, nursing is a caring and nurturing occupation. Connecting with people on a personal level at a time when they are the most vulnerable, is the essence of nursing. Being there for people- be it the birth of a child, or the news about a devastating diagnosis, is what I have devoted my professional life to. As far as my personal life , I believe it is my candidness and willingness to the tell my story that empowers others to want to reach a better place in life and know that there is help if they seek it out
There are several messages throughout my book. I want people to know that they are important and that they matter. I want people to know that the way we raise our children, has a direct impact on peace out in the world. A really important message conveyed in the book is that you cannot buy personal self-esteem and self-worth. They are concepts that each of us must find on our own accord and do whatever it takes to change lanes in life, and make it to the finish line (self-worth). Humane love is an essential component of the developmental stages of childhood. Without it, the seeds will never grow and the branches will never blossom. It is imperative that we forgive the people or person(s) that have wronged us in life. We must do this to free ourselves from the darkness and negativity. It has to be a conscious decision to live in peace and love.
