The Case of the Incredible Disappearing Cancer Patients

Tracy Kolenchuk, ContributorIt’s been almost 20 years since I met my first disappearing patient — a nurse in her early 40s, let’s call her Kate. Kate was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a nurse, she had seen the results of breast cancer treatments. She was terrified, and determined. She was not heading for surgery, nor chemotherapy, nor radiation.But Kate worked in a hospital. She worked with the doctors who diagnosed her cancer, and she worked with [...]

17 Surprising Reasons You’re Stressed Out





Excerpt from huffingtonpost.com
By Amanda MacMillan


You're probably all too aware of the major sources of stress in your life -- money, your terrible commute, the construction workers who start jackhammering at 5 a.m. But stress and anxiety don't have to just come from obvious or even negative sources. "There are plenty of chronic strains and low-grade challenges that don't necessarily overwhelm you in the moment, but almost take more of a toll in the long run," says Scott Schieman, Ph.D., professor of sociology at the University of Toronto. These are some of unexpected reasons why you might feel anxious or agitated. By recognizing them for what they are, says Schieman, you can better prepare to cope.

1. Your Significant Other
Even if you have a blissfully happy relationship with your live-in partner or spouse, you're both bound to do things that get on each other's nerves. "Early in the relationship, it's usually about space and habits -- like whether you squeeze the toothpaste from the middle or the bottom of the tube," says Ken Yeager, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. "Later on, you might clash over parenting style or financial issues, and finding a unified front to face these issues together." So what's the key to surviving and thriving in your life together? Finding balance, says Yeager: spending the right amount of time together (not too much and not too little), making compromises, keeping communication open and honest, and remembering to acknowledge what you love about each other on a daily basis.


2. Everyday Annoyances
We're told not to sweat the small stuff, but sometimes it's the little things that have the biggest impact on our mood: the never-ending phone calls with your insurance company, the rude cashier at the grocery store, the 20 minutes you lose looking for a parking space. "We let these things bother us because they trigger unconscious fears," says Yeager -- fears of being seen as irresponsible, of being bullied or embarrassed, or of being late all the time, for example. "Sometimes you need to take a step back and realize that you're doing the best you can given the circumstances." 


3. Other People's Stress
Stress is contagious, according to a 2014 German study: In a series of experiments, most participants who simply observed others completing a stressful task experienced an increase themselves in production of the stress hormone cortisol -- a phenomenon known as empathic stress. You can also experience stress when someone you know is affected by a traumatic event, like a car crash or a chronic illness. "You start to worry, 'Oh my gosh, could that happen to me?'," says Yeager. "We tend not to think about these things until they hit close to home."


4. Social Media social media
It may seem like Facebook is the only way you keep up with the friends you don't see regularly -- which, during particularly busy times, can be just about all of them. The social network also has a downside, according to a 2015 study from the Pew Research Center: It can make you aware of stressful situations in your friends' lives, which in turn can add more stress to your life. The Pew report didn't find that social media users, overall, had higher levels of stress, but previous studies have suggested that frequent social-media use can be associated with negative body image and prolonged breakup pain.


5. Distraction
A distraction can be a good thing then when it takes your mind off of a stressful situation or difficult decision, like when you take a break from work to meet a friend for lunch. But it works the other way, as well: When you're so busy thinking about something else that you can't enjoy what's going on around you, that kind of distraction can be a recipe for stress. Practicing mindfulness gives you brain the refresh it needs, says Richard Lenox, director of the Student Counseling Center at Texas Tech University. Paying full attention to your surroundings when you're walking and driving can help, he adds. "Stress and anxiety tend to melt away when our mind is focused on the present." 


6. Your Childhood
Traumatic events that happened when you were a kid can continue to affect your stress levels and overall health into adulthood. A 2014 University of Wisconsin-Madison study found that these childhood experiences may actually change parts of the brain responsible for processing stress and emotion. The way you were raised can also have a lasting impact on your everyday angst, suggests a 2014 Johns Hopkins University study. Researchers found that children of parents with social anxiety disorders are more likely to develop "trickle-down anxiety" -- not simply because of their genes, but because of their parents' behaviors toward them such as a lack of warmth and emotion, or high levels of criticism and doubt.


7. Tea And Chocolate
You probably know to take it easy on the coffee when you're already feeling on edge. "Caffeine is always going to make stress worse," says Yeager. But you may not think as much about drinking several cups of tea at once, or chowing down on a bar of dark chocolate -- both of which can contain nearly as much caffeine as a cup of joe. "Chocolate is a huge caffeine source," says Yeager. "I know people who don't drink coffee but they'll eat six little candy bars in a two-hour period because they want the same kind of jolt." Too much caffeine, in any form, can cause problems with sleep, digestion, and irritability. 


8. Your Expectations woman trail running
When things don't go the way you've planned, do you tend to get upset and act defensively, or do you roll with the punches and set off on a new plan? If it's the former, you could be contributing to a mindset of pessimism and victimization that will slowly wear you down, even when things may not be as bad as they seem. "Your level of serenity is inversely proportionate to your expectations," says Yeager. That doesn't mean you shouldn't set ambitious goals for yourself or settle for less than what you want, of course, but being realistic about what's truly possible is important, as well.


9. Your Reaction To Stress
If you tend to deal with stressful situations by working long hours, skipping your workouts, and bingeing on junk food, we've got some bad news: You're only making it worse. "We know that physical activity and healthy foods will help your body better deal with stress, and yet we often avoid them when we need them the most," says Yeager. "People really need to think about this downward spiral we get into and work harder to counteract it."


10. Multitasking
Think you're being super efficient by tackling four tasks at once? Chances are you're not -- and it's only decreasing your productivity while increasing your stress. A 2012 University of Irvine study, for example, found that people who responded to emails all day long while also trying to get their work done experienced more heart-rate variability (an indicator of mental stress) than those who waited to respond to all of their emails at one time. Focusing on one task at a time can ensure that you're doing that job to the best of your abilities and getting the most out of it, so you won't have to worry about or go back and fix it later, says Schieman. And don't worry: You'll have enough time to do it all. In fact, you may discover you have more time than you thought.


11. Your Favorite Sport
Watching a tight game of college hoops can stress you out -- even if your alma mater wins. "The body doesn't distinguish between 'bad' stress from life or work and 'good' stress caused by game-day excitement," says Jody Gilchrist, a nurse practitioner at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Heart and Vascular Clinic. Watching sports can even trigger the body's sympathetic nervous system, releasing adrenaline and reducing blood flow to the heart. Those temporary consequences aren't usually anything to be concerned about, but over time, chronic stress can lead to high blood pressure and increased disease risk. And, of course, it doesn't help if you're adding alcohol and binge-eating to a situation that's already stressful on your body. You may not be able to control the outcome of the game, says Gilchrist, but you can limit its effects on your own body. 


12. Digital Devices laptop in bed
Whether you're using it for work or play, technology may play a large role in your mental health, says Yeager. Using computers or e-readers too close to bedtime could lead to sleep problems, he says, and spending too much time virtually socializing can make real-life interactions seem extra stressful. (Plus, texting doesn't trigger the same feel-good hormones as face-to-face talk does.) Then there's the dreaded "work creep," says Schieman, when smartphones allow employees to be tethered to their jobs, even during off-hours. "People say they're only going to check email for an hour while they're on vacation, but the problem with email is that they're filled with responsibilities, new tasks, and dilemmas that are going to be hard to compartmentalize and put out of your head once that hour is up."


13. Your (Good) Health
While it may not be as stressful as having a chronic illness or getting bad news at the doctor's office, even people in the best shape of their lives worry about their bodies, their diets, and their fitness levels. In fact, people who take healthy living to an extreme may experience some rather unhealthy side effects. People who follow low-carb diets, for example, are more likely to report being sad or stressed out, while those on any kind of restrictive meal plan may feel more tired than usual. And it's not unheard of for someone to become obsessed with healthy eating (known as orthorexia) or working out (gymorexia). Like any form of perfectionism, these problems can be stressful at best, and extremely dangerous at worst.


14. Housework
Does folding laundry help you feel calm, or does it make your blood boil? If you're in a living situation where you feel you're responsible for an unfair share of work, even chores you once enjoyed may start to feel like torture. "Dividing up housework and parenting responsibilities can be tricky, especially if both partners work outside the home," says Schieman. "And whether you define that division of labor as equal or unequal can really change your attitude toward it."


15. Uncertainty
Stress can be defined as any perceived or actual threat, says Yeager, so any type of doubt that's looming over you can contribute to your anxiety levels on a daily basis. "When you know something could change at any minute, you always have your guard up and it's hard to just relax and enjoy anything." Financial uncertainty may be the most obvious stressor -- not being sure if you'll keep your job during a round of layoffs, or not knowing how you'll pay your credit card bill. Insecurities in other areas of life, like your relationship or your housing status, can eat away at you too.


16. Your Pet bulldog puppy
No matter how much you love your furry friends, there's no question that they add extra responsibility to your already full plate. Even healthy animals need to be fed, exercised, cleaned up after, and given plenty of attention on a regular basis -- and unhealthy ones can be a whole other story. "Pets can be the most positive source of unconditional love, but at the same time they require an extreme amount of energy," says Yeager. People also tend to underestimate the stress they'll experience when they lose a pet. "I've had people in my office tell me they cried more when their dog died than when their parent died. It's a very emotional connection."


17. Your Education
Having a college degree boosts your odds of landing a well-paying job, so although you're less likely to suffer from money-related anxiety, your education can bring on other types of stress, according to a 2014 study by Schieman and his University of Toronto colleagues. His research found that highly educated people were more likely to be stressed out thanks to job pressures, being overworked, and conflicts between work and family. "Higher levels of authority come with a lot more interpersonal baggage, such as supervising people or deciding whether they get promotions," says Schieman. "With that type of responsibility, you start to take things like incompetency and people not doing their jobs more personally, and it bothers you more."

Push Pause

Greeting and Salutations My Beautiful Beings of Light. Smile and be in gratitude, My Beloveds these are the moments that you all came to witness. Your “time” as you perceive it is speeding up. As you sense it speed up into what can almost be felt as warp speed your vibrations go higher and higher. You are evolving on so many levels, it is amazing to watch.

Push Pause for a moment, take a deep breath and sense The Creator’s wonderful love energy swirling around you. It is creating a lavender and pink vortex of amazing love energy that is swirling from your head to your toes. Close your eyes and just feel the stillness and tranquility that this luscious love energy shares with you. It assists you to center and balance as well as harmonizes your energy fields to be more receptive to your higher guidance.

Once you are still My Beloveds, your body can then adjust to much of the changing scenery and emotional roller-coaster ride that you constantly find yourselves on during these moments in NOW.

Finding that balance and footing is very important, My Beautiful Beings of Grace. Your emotional health and your physical health depend upon your body’s abilities to detach and detox. Constantly being on Red Alert in your own life keeps you in turmoil and clouds your decision making abilities.

All is in perfection My Divine Beings of Light, All is as it should be, look past the illusions of chaos and feel the larger Divine Blueprint filtering through. Look closely with your spiritual eyes and see that ray of light beaming through the Earth Plane illusion. You can hear it with your spiritual ears and sense it with your spiritual heart in the question it keeps asking you to quiz yourself on “Who Really Are You”. It keeps echoing back at you “You are not this physical body, but a Beautiful Being of Light.” The Divine Blueprint keeps sending you these messages: “You Are Divine”, “You Are Loved”, “Ask the question Who I AM”, “Ask the question What Is My Mission”; “You are a spiritual Being having a human experience”.

Your Angels and Guides, My Beloveds, are all around you. There is not a moment that you are in this physical realm that you are not surrounded by your Angels and Guides. You are never alone My Divine Light Beings. The Creator would never ask you or let you come alone on such a journey. You are deeply loved and cherished.

Allow this Messenger to take you on a mediation journey.

Arrange yourself in your chair or lie on a bed so that you are comfortable. Keep your legs and arms from crossing if at all possible as this blocks the flow of energy. Cover yourself with a light blanket if you chill easily. We want you comfortable and undisturbed for a while as you journey within yourself through meditation.

Close your eyes and take a deep breath, then let it out.  With each in breath, you are breathing in love. With each out breath, you are breathing out fear and doubt. Take another deep breath in and let it out.  Take another deep breath in and let it out with a sigh. Breathing out all frustrations of the day.

Feel your body relaxing from your toes to the top of your head. Give yourself permission to feel the calm and peace. Your muscles are feeling loose and limp, so relaxed, so deliciously serene, so wonderfully lazy.

Direct your ego self to perch on your left shoulder. Instruct your ego self that it is only to be an observer on this journey, it is not to participate. If it helps you to visualize by identifying your ego with a symbol or as an object please do so.

In your imagination ask through prayer for The Creator to send you down a protective Ray of White Light by praying mentally something like this “My Creator I AM asking for a protective Ray of White Light to enfold me and lift me up so that I am experiencing the very highest of vibrations during this journey into my inner most depths of understanding and Being. I am protecting myself My Creator from anything that is not for my highest good on this journey. I am thanking you My Creator for assisting me by sending this Ray. I am seeing it in my imagination now coming down through the corner of the area where I am meditating. It is entering into my physical form, permeating all that is within my I AM presence.”

The Creator has responded to your prayer and has gifted you with an Iridescent White Ray plus a Golden Fluid Ray for this journey. The Rays are entering into your body through the soles of your feet and moving up through your physical vessel; permeating throughout all of your etheric energy fields & physical vessel and into all corners of the actual area that you are meditating in; then the rays are exiting through your Crown Chakra. The Rays are returning to The Creator and cycling back down through you again and back to The Creator in a continuous circular loop. These protective therapeutic rays are in continuous circular motion while you are in meditation.

You are now divinely protected at this moment and nothing can even communicate with you, that is not for your highest good, without your permission.

My Divine Beings of Light. You are breathing very slowly and evenly now; you are feeling secure and safe.

Breathe in deeply My Beautiful Beings of Light and feel the lighter relaxed feelings of being protected & divinely guided into this meditation. Breathe in deeply and know that you are breathing to the Pulse of The Creator. Listen to The Creator’s spiritual heart beat and feel the unconditional love that courses through you each time you think about this moment.

Breathe in deeply allowing and seeing within your spiritual imagination your Guardian Angels and invited Spirit Guides as they join you.  The Angels take your etheric essence hand and guides you out of your physical body and direct you into your Etheric Spiritual Heart Chakra. An Angel has been stationed to stay with your physical essence until you return from your meditation. 

You are seeing, feeling and sensing this within your imagination, Your Guardian Angels, Spirit Guides and special invited guests are now within your Spiritual Heart Chakra with you. Your Angels and Guides are helping you locate the Golden Door that says “To My Highest Guidance Within” you turn the etheric spiritual door knob and cross over the threshold knowing that you are on a spiritual growth adventure.

You find yourself in a white marble corridor. Your Angels sense the stress that you brought with you and take your etheric hand to guide you down the hall to door that will lead you to your Crystal Palace.

Your helicopter has been summoned to whisk you right up the mountain to your Garden of Serenity.

You hop in the helicopter and away it flies. In the distance you can see the mountain top from your seat in the helicopter. Your Angels smile and tell you that you will be there in no time at all. The Angels laugh of course this is a cosmic joke because in this realm there is no time. They remind you that in this realm if not mindful that you can almost blink your eye and be in eternity (smile).

You arrive at the helipad on top of the mountain and step out of the plane. There you look around at the magnificent vistas and the beautiful Garden of Serenity. Your friend, the white Unicorn, Jake greets you and begins to lead you down the path to your Crystal Palace off in the distance.

You stroke the silky ears of the Unicorn as you walk. There is just something so soothing in stroking his silky fur. You arrive at the golden door of the Crystal Palace. The door that has your name on it, along with all the other names that you have ever held throughout any of your past life incarnations. See if you can read any of the other names as you prepare to open the door and step inside. Don’t be concerned if nothing else appears on the door for you, it is information that is not ready for you to remember just yet. More opportunities will present themselves when the moment in NOW is right to have those recollections surface.

You step inside and the remembrance of this place is flooding back into your awareness. The Palace continues to expand and construction is always a constant here as it evolves as you evolve.

Your old friends the color dots are bouncing around on the entrance floor as the light filters in through the refractions of the crystal all around you. The colored dots dance in such joy welcoming you back to your Crystal Palace.

Your Angels lead you into the main room where you see the doors all around the perimeter of this great room. Each of the doors is labeled with it content or work related area. 

The Angels lean over and tell you that they are guiding you to your Healing and Releasing room down the hall there to your right. You find the door and turn the knob. There is a Nurse Angel at the door to greet you. The Angel asks you to hand over your cell phone, your I Pad, your beeper, your computer lap top and oh yes, also the Blue Tooth device sticking out of your ear. You smile because you thought they wouldn’t notice that one since you need a hair cut the hair was covering the Blue Tooth. The Angels laugh and you laugh over this one. There simply isn’t much you can put passed an Angel they remind you.

The Angels just shake their heads at all the communication devices you are laden with. No wonder your Angels tell you that you have so much stress; you are wired to the hilt.  

The Angels direct you to a changing screen and ask you to put on the bathing suit that you find hanging there waiting for you. You do as requested noticing that the bathing suit fits and looks divine on you. You thank the angel for their selection and sizing and they laugh telling you that they know your fit and style better than you know it yourself.

You have to agree with this statement since these Angelic Beings have been with you from your inception and birth in the Firmament.

You walk out from behind the screen and your Angels direct you to the scale next to the Emerald Green pool that is labeled The Stress Meter. You step on the scale and it promptly digitally shows your stress level at “10”. The Angels giggle as you also laugh because you thought they would be measuring your weight with a scale. They tell you that your stress level is at a 10, which is the highest it can be. You shake your head and tell them you are not surprised, your body feels like it is in a pressure cooker.

The Angels tell you to look down at your belly button and as you do, there you see a button attached to your stomach that says “Pause”. The Angels tell you to push the pause button, there on your tummy and walk down the steps into the Emerald Green pool.

You do as instructed and as you get to the bottom step an Angel hands you a special floating raft for you to lay back on while you enjoy the water. The first think you notice since they asked you to push the Pause button is that your mind is blank. Your Angels hear that thought and relay to you that Pause means Pause your mind needs to be still and not think.

They tell you to close your eyes and just allow the blank empty feeling to help you unwind and release the stress into the Emerald Green pool. They don’t have to ask twice, you close your eyes and immediately feel yourself without thoughts, drifting so peacefully, so serenely in this beautiful emerald green water. This is Bliss you tell yourself. It feels so good to be devoid of all thoughts if only for a little while. You feel the stress starting to drain out of your body. First it just trickles but then it just begins to pour out in bucket loads. The sensation is actually a little calming because as each stress moment is released into the pool you begin to feel better and better. This is amazing you tell yourself.

After a while you sense that the draining has stopped. You open your eyes and notice that the Archangels are standing around the corners of the pool beaming your healing and clearing energies to help all of your essence heal from the debilitating stress. You can feel the Archangels re-energizing you with calm, peaceful energies that create harmony and balance within your energy fields. You thank them for their gifts and are so grateful for the stress intervention.

Your Angels tell you that you should be ready now to come out of the pool and step back on the stress scale to see where the stress level is now. You climb back up the pool steps and notice as you step out of the pool that you are not even wet. You begin to laugh, saying how fun, you are not even wet. You were expecting to step out and have water dripping off of you everywhere.

You step on the scale and it can’t even measure anything. The Angels tell you that you are done then, perfect. They tell you that you may release the pause button now. They tell you to go change back into your clothes.

You change and get ready to leave. The Nurse Angel hands you back all of your electronic devices and advises you to push the pause button on each one of them several times a day to avoid putting yourself back at risk for a physical ailment caused by the stress that these devices cause in your daily life.

You agree, the Angels have shown you how very close you were to implosion. You immediately put an intent out into the Universe to respect your own health and cut back on the constant access caused by these devices. They remind you that everything has balance and requires constant monitoring in order to remain in harmony with yourself.

You thank the Archangels and the Angels for all their help. Your Angels guide you back out of the Healing and Releasing room back into the hallway. You walk back up the hall into the Great Room, cross back into the colored dot filled entrance corridor, turn the handle, cross back over the threshold. Your friend Jake is waiting for you there to take you back down the path to the helicopter pad and the waiting helicopter.  

You stroke Jakes fur again and thank him for his friendship. You tell him until next time and step back into the waiting helicopter.

The helicopter swishes away and lands at the helipad where you started. You open the plane door, step out, re-enter through the door from where you started. You instantly find yourself back in the White Marble Corridor.    

You catch a glimpse of your glowing Essence in the mirror. Your Angels lead you back across the golden door threshold back into your Spiritual Heart Chakra and then they assist the return of your spiritual Essence back into your physical form.

Wiggle your fingers and toes and when ready open your eyes. Go about your day remembering that your inner Wisdom and Angelic support staff are always at your service working with you to help you reach your highest most appropriate potential.  

Beloveds you are blessed beyond words and loved beyond measure more than any Earth Plane language can ever express. 

I Am Archangel Michael, The Creator’s Messenger, of Love, Joy, Wisdom, Light, Peace and Grace.
