Anxiety may be one of the most common mental health conditions in the country, and yet few people are willing to admit that their anxiety is causing a serious problem. Anxiety is often considered normal, especially in its milder forms, and indeed there are times when feeling anxious makes a great deal of sense (an important meeting with a client, or a job interview for example), and otherwise fairly harmless.
Yet there’s no denying that there are also times when anxiety affects your life in a negative way, and in some cases that anxiety can be fairly consistent. Persistent anxiety may be a sign of generalized anxiety disorder – and for many, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) affects their life fairly regularly. If you experience anxiety when no anxiety should be present, and you find that that anxiety is affecting your quality of life, there may be more going on than you think.
You can see what qualifies as GAD in the DSM-IV-TR, but it’s not uncommon to have an anxiety problem without realizing it. So here are some potential signs to keep an eye out for.
These days sex is glorified, possibly even over-glorified. Despite the lack of marriages or even committed relationships, the act of ‘getting it in’ hasn’t shown any signs of decreasing. The excitement surrounding sex is in some cases better than the actual act for some; but still, sex before marriage, or even without a committed relationship has become the norm. So the lack thereof has in fact become the opposite. After all, how many rappers and singers do you know that are singing about not having sex?
Instead, we’re bombarded with recycled lyrics of why we should be engaging in sexual activity coupled with false images of how wonderful these activities will be. And while this is not to contest the enjoyable feelings that can accompany sex, many times we forget the ‘other side’ of it; and it’s not always so exciting.
There’s not a lot of dialogue regarding celibacy outside of religion, but besides religious beliefs, there are many reasons why celibacy can prove to be beneficial for some. For those who can’t imagine a life without sex temporarily, consider these few points great reasons to try a period of celibacy.
If you’re natural, you’re sure to have a number of these annoying single strands knots (aka fairy knots) lurking around your hair.

I don’t care if you are the loneliest in the women in the world, there are just some guys out there that you simply don’t want to attract. We’ve all been hit on by a guy (or a girl, yikes!) who left us feeling a bit uncomfortable, albeit, hella scared, or just plain ‘ol sad because their life situations just don’t work with our preferences. And if the men on this list try and get at you and you say no thank you, it usually creates an awkward situation. So! With no further adieu, here are a few examples of some of those guys you just don’t want to get your flirt on with like that…
(CNN Money) — Lisa Jucha makes a comfortable living. But while she was growing up, money was scarce — she describes her childhood as “financially difficult.” She doesn’t want to struggle like that again.
Lately, Jucha, who is 45 and single, has begun to worry about what would happen if an accident or illness prevented her from working. She’s especially afraid of losing her home. ” I can’t let a disability compromise what I worked and dreamed for,” she says. As a sign-language interpreter for the federal government, Jucha earns $68,000 a year; she brings in another $15,000 or so on the side working as a video-relay interpreter — helping deaf people talk to hearing people via videophone
(Read Write Web) — Earlier this week, VC Mark Suster blogged the decree “Say No to Meetings.” Suster argues that time is an entrepreneur’s scarcest resource. And with all the pressures – from current and potential employees, vendors, and investors, Suster suggests that entrepreneurs learn to decline holding meetings. This may seem somewhat contradictory to the advice that entrepreneurs always stay in touch with advisors and investors. Suster clarifies, “I’m not saying “no more meetings” but rather “no, to more meetings.”
