Is it all about the money?

A poem..

Ang kalimitan kaganapan sa mundo ay pera-pera lang.
Konti na lang siguro
Ang di nasisislaw sa pera sa panahon ngayon.
Kasi mahirap walang pera. Di mo mababayaran utang mo.
Di ka makakain ng tama at husto.
Di ka makabibili ng gamot mo. Wala kang pera sa bangko.
Mababa tingin sayo ng tao, kahit malapit sa buhay mo.

Kailan ba ako nagluho? Di ko matandaan.
Basta at may pera sila inaalala. Tulad ng nanay ko
Di ko masyado pino-problema pera.
Sana lang kung walang kailangan bayaran.

Okey lang kahit walang personal assets,
Pero pano pag dumating na si kamatayan.
Ma-momoroblema pa sila.
Paano ka ipalilibing? Walang ipon. Mangungutang pa sila?
Ah sa SSS may 20,000 yata dun. Arkila na lang ng ataol.
Pa-cremate para di pa magastos.
Bahala na siguro sila. Patay ka na.
Di ka na dapat mag problema.

And what a distressing kind of  ooouuucchh.. I don't understand why it is that excruciatingly agonizing?
Surprisingly, even socialites do have canker sores. There's this popular site I just visited talking about the difficulties one suffer when canker sores attack,  and how she tries to manage the pain.  Her commenters  prescribed  different types of treatment. And I found it a whole lot useful to find remedies that I could try next time I have canker sores. And these are solcoser…


Some 350 million recorded cases of depression were recorded worldwide by the WHO.  Could this be seen as something like an epidemic already, or is there anything as  such? Haven't we all suffered from some form of depression at one time or another. So what is depression? Why do people get depressed?
Mood swings such as sadness without any reason, guilt feelings, unhappiness, and possessing generally negative thoughts over long periods of time can mean a person is depressed. Anybody can feel depressed after stressful incidents of   losing a love one, losing your  job, or sudden or prolonged illness. Other predisposing factors like, lack of sleep, drug or alcohol abuse, taking steroids or  certain thyroid conditions can sometimes lead to depression.
So how do we know if a person is depressed? What are the signs?
When a person is irritable, restless, agitated or has a difficult time concentrating; then losing interest in almost everything and having no energy at all, it could be tha…
