After reading this post I feel that this duality is there in the markets too. People who are selling their crypto at a loss during bloodbath are making others rich.

A few people can achieve the power to handle tough situations while keeping calm. A similar mindset is required in crypto and in fact anywhere in life because life is full of shit.

Having 'patience' is the key to solve massive problems!

Thank you for your response and input. I really appreciate it. Patience is the key. You can rule over your emotions, but you must not allow them to rule you. I wish I had that wisdom in my youth.

The nurse asked me if I wanted to call my parents or a priest. I weakly said that I was good to go and ready to come home. I could barely remember the last 24 hours let alone breathe. It was like taking air in through a straw-except instead of air it was fire & pain. The nurse let me know what occurred. My parents came to see me two days later.

Fear, Excitement, Anxiety, and Regret drove my body to the point of collapse. Two years before my hospital stay I worked non-stop between my submarine and education. First one to rise and last one to sleep. When my heart problems started, pain wracked my body. No one believed me. I dropped 40 pounds because it just hurt too much to eat. The pain taught me you had to actually breathe when eating. Why didn't I ever know this?

The ship's doctors told me I had heartburn. I had nowhere to go. I was in torment for 6 months until those GD doctors realized maybe they were wrong.

What I had was irrelevant. No one is an island and no one is invulnerable. Yet, the dual reality of equanimity exists. Had I not gone through that turmoil I would not have learned about the equanimity possible to calm the storms within. Even now, I must control my emotions to prevent my damaged heart to sing its songs once more.

Like the gods of old, even I did not have the stamina for equanimity. Yet, I am human and I can learn.

Thank God you are and if it makes sense......I honestly get it
Doctors have been rather a bane to most things like me getting the wrong entire medicine for a shoulder dislocation that would make my Navy Seal/Navy Stepbros cry like babies, unreal and sorry to hear that but some of us are wired kinda gung ho and it's sort of a torture to just "chill and do nothing" until we literally have to.
great post and fingers crossed

Thank you for responding. That event occurred in 2003. I kept getting sick until 2007, but since then I've been good to go except for certain emotions. I learned that, again, the hard way. If I get anxious, the pain comes. My training has been good thought and anxiety is ALMOST a thing of the past.

I'm married, with kids, and inlaws. I feel like I'm in the anxiety olympics, lol. But seriously, I'm much better now.

have you ever tried or heard of theanine? it's natural and an amino acid derived from green tea that induces relaxing yet alert alpha waves, it's fabulous and you can get it on Amazon, dm me if you want any more deets but it's easy to find as long as you make sure it's labeled with Suntheanie which is the patented variety of it and it's very affordable ;) stay well and glad you are self aware enough to know when to chill and let the 'noise' go.

I haven't tried that treatment. They called what I had acute viral percarditis. It's pretty quick to treat, but due to military red tape, I felt in my youth that I had no options for treatment. I was like this for 6 months until I ended up in the emergency room.

The medicine they gave me was called indocin or indomethacin.

Doctors need to realize they are people. They make mistakes. It's ok to say I don't know. I've had to have a word or two with doctors before and they don't like the responses as I speak calmly and without anger. My discussion with them does change their attitude though so I'm glad for it.
