woah, whats so special abt this? any diff between this and new moon?
way way way better than the New Moon. More tender, less chewy, good flavor. For calmex, must get the mexico one and not the aussie one.

Fr my kid days, mum would insist to buy only tis brand.

If i dun get tis, the premium range of Hock Hwa's 山大王 oso acceptable.

I thought about it before. But I don't think I'm up for it. I will have this in my mind. Maybe I could contribute in other ways towards the later years. Sometimes when I see people out there having difficulties in their movements, I will help. :)

then volunteering will be a gd option when u have time ☺️

Sis, I managed to escape because there is someone more challenging waiting for me years later down the road. But this time round, I took matters differently and took it to offline from the start. At least I don't need to wait until I am totally exhausted before moving things offline. That is provided the other party is willing.

My friend, who had never dated before, was fighting depression too. Back in 2019&2020, other than the lockdown, as and when I received a notification from him, I will always make time for him. I will keep some things out of the picture because I don't want to reveal. Once I revealed, you will hope lightning to strike him because it was extreme and beyond my imagination. There were many surprises along the way that caught me offguard. But the funny thing was, my mental fitness was at an all time high. I don't even felt a thing throughout the whole 2 years of time spending with him. Here are two examples out of many:

Meet up place&time was set 1:

Me: Hao ma brother?
Friend: DON'T TALK TO ME (his emotions went haywire just before I met him)
Me: o_O in my mind, wtf you asked me to come out but I cannot talk to you

Meet up place&time was set 2:
We were seated beside each other drinking bbt. He suddenly stared at me. I saw it from my sideview and pretended nothing happened and continue to drink my bbt

Friend: LAST TIME YOU ALWAYS DISAGREED WITH ME RIGHT?
Me: in my mind, siao liao ki siao again but I remained silent
Friend: YOU TELL ME! WHY NOW EVERYTHING I SAID YOU AGREED WITH ME?
Me: I almost puke out my bbt. Stragtegy tio sexposed. 😅

Eventually I took a step back last year after knowing his psychiatrists couldn't help much either.

So tolong tolong, I hope this year many many people like them can recover and lead a healthier lifestyle!

You are very 伟大 already! It’s very tough and depressing lifting people out of depression, especially those suffering from chronic severe depression.

Recently, I heard from my mum her friend was into trouble with her back so I offered to bring that auntie out to see my TCM. So far so good. I will reach out to more elderlies if possible.

Seems like I'm a little warm up in terms of awakening which was aligned to what you said, volunteering. :)

im not surprised psychiatrists cannot help. because most depression arent really due to chemical imbalance but the tendency to ruminate about the past + victim mentality + negative mindset. if we can change these things (with therapy and self care tips like journaling, staying in present moment/mindfulness, not giving a sh1t abt what ppl think) then such "depression" actually can heal one.

Thank you Sis.! ;)

Are you aware they are usually shunned by others? They may not even have the luxury of having a proper meal out there with friends because they don't have any to begin with. Even they have friends, they were usually being made use of. Those unscrupulous idiots out there are farking manipulating pretending to be their 'friends' when they see something they could get out of all these lost souls.

Probably that's what spur me on.

When you comfort others, you yourself will oso find peace. Is a good karma. Bless you

For my friend's case, you are on point. Exactly these 3.

past(childhood) + victim mentality + negative mindset

He kept thinking the whole world + people are out to destroy him. His siblings can't be bothered with him.
