Stress is bad for our health in many ways, but is a part of life. Stress can affect our sleep, cause stomach problems, cause high blood pressure, and many other physical and mental issues.
I had stomach problems for over 45 years. I tried Tagamet, Zantac, and others. I ate antacids like candy. When it was bad in later years, I learned a shot of blackberry brandy provided the most relief.
About a year ago I had a heart attach. The hospital pharmacist said he could fix the stomach issue. He put me on pantoprazole and I have not taken an antacid or had stomach pain since.
Part of my problem was stress. I had a To Do list every workday that was always too long and never got completed. When I did not reach my goals, my stomach usually started to hurt.
I still have a To Do list and I still never complete it, but now, I don’t care. Medication and mental attitude can both reduce stress.
I heard about a college that had a mandatory college course to teach students how to handle stress. Good idea, but if a student found the course too stressful; they could opt out of the class. Are you kidding me? Coddling college students certainly does not prepare them for the real world. It’s a jungle out there.
When Donald Trump was elected President, some colleges cancelled tests and assignments because students were stressed about the outcome of the election. Our education system teaching extreme liberal propaganda created that situation. Students should have been celebrating Trump’s victory as if their school had just won a national championship.
Our education system is too liberal today. Socialism is taught as an option when it has never worked in the history of the world. We no longer teach our children to respect our country, our flag, and the office of the Presidency. Courses are taught that do nothing to teach the student to make a living in the real world. I can see why some can never leave the world of academia. Others go out into the job market having learned no work ethic.
Our educational system should teach personal responsibility, accurate history, ethics, and usable skills for earning a living. Giving participation trophies and coddling hurt feelings is not healthy or helpful. No wonder students are too stressed to function.
God bless President Trump and guide him to make
great again. America
