My Brother has one and he does well with it. He has more confidence about going places because he knows he can sit down and rest if he needs to. The downside is all the junk he carries in the compartment under the seat, he's worse than an old lady with a gigantic handbag!

That's what I'm hoping, that Shrek will get some confidence and go mall-walking with me. He can stop anytime and watch me lap him several times. He really needs to get up and get moving.

I'm starting to have nightmares, first one was about three weeks ago. Last night had another, took Shrek almost two minutes to wake me up out of it. He said I was screaming and talking gibberish. All I remember was I was locked in a library and everyone else was dead. Then I saw that one person on a floor lower was alive and I was yelling for help. About then I felt something touch my back and started screaming. Then I woke up.

I found this Simply Being Guided Meditation app helpful when I was under a lot of stress: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Apps | Meditation Oasis

Is there one for someone who doesn't have an i-anything? I am very susceptible to nightmares, thought I had them under control for many years. Was horrible when I was a kid.

Fascinating! I have downloaded several of the meditations. Thanks for the link TL. (I have lifelong and severe insomnia which I am sure is related to stress and being unable to "shut down"). Maybe these will help.
