I recently posted a piece titled "Surfing an Emotional Tsunami", in which I talked about the overwhelming torrent of emotion that comes bundled in the Multiple Sclerosis package (click here) . One astute reader commented that I had left out a very important feeling with which he often saw his MS stricken wife struggle: frustration. And, of course, he was absolutely right. The more I thought about it, the more it became clear to me that frustration plays such a large role in the experience of MS patients that it deserved a post of its own. MSers experience frustration on so many different levels that its presence can almost be taken for granted, like the air that we breathe. Unlike life-giving oxygen, though, frustration can be suffocating, and in fact can be the seed of many of the other negative emotions that plague MS patients: fear, anger, guilt, desperation. Frustration strikes on many fronts, and MS patients battle it in its myriad forms over and over each and every day. The disease itself ...
The goal is to help people with face-to-face communication," says Ehsan Hoque, a graduate student in the Affective Computing Group of MITs Media Lab who is lead author of a paper just published in the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. Hoques co-authors are Rosalind Picard, a professor of media arts and sciences, and Media Lab graduate student Daniel McDuff.. In experiments conducted at the Media Lab, people were first asked to act out expressions of delight or frustration, as webcams recorded their expressions. Then, they were either asked to fill out an online form designed to cause frustration or invited to watch a video designed to elicit a delighted response - also while being recorded.. When asked to feign frustration, Hoque says, 90 percent of subjects did not smile. But when presented with a task that caused genuine frustration - filling out a detailed online form, only to then find the information deleted after pressing the "submit" button - 90 percent of them did smile, he ...
Biomolecules are the prime information processing elements of living matter. Most of these inanimate systems are polymers that compute their own structures and dynamics using as input seemingly random character strings of their sequence, following which they coalesce and perform integrated cellular functions. In large computational systems with finite interaction-codes, the appearance of conflicting goals is inevitable. Simple conflicting forces can lead to quite complex structures and behaviors, leading to the concept of frustration in condensed matter. We present here some basic ideas about frustration in biomolecules and how the frustration concept leads to a better appreciation of many aspects of the architecture of biomolecules, and especially how biomolecular structure connects to function by means of localized frustration. These ideas are simultaneously both seductively simple and perilously subtle to grasp completely. The energy landscape theory of protein folding provides a framework ...

Frustration, although quite painful at times, is a very positive and essential part of success." ~ Bo Bennett. I started my own real estate and feng shui business this year, and already it is teaching me an important lesson: Things arent always easy.. The successful birthing of a dream or a vision takes a lot of hard work, action, perseverance, patience, and sometimes, prayers! It also requires an ongoing assessment of where your head is, especially when things dont always work out the way you envisioned it.. Working independently has given me the flexibility, creative freedom, and personal satisfaction I couldnt attain anywhere else. Doing so also did not come short of challenges.. No matter how much I planned and analyzed every detail, or anticipated every possible outcome, ultimately, I didnt have control over anything or anyone. People didnt always keep their promises. Above all, things change unexpectedly.. It can be incredibly frustrating.. The frustration hasnt just pulled me down; ...
Frustration is a normal human reaction when a person feels that they are unable to achieve something that they want, value, believe that they have a right to, or believe that they should be able to do. A person who is incontinent may show their frustration when they are unable to master their incontinence or some aspect of their care or treatment. Because anger is closely related to frustration, even the smallest problem with leakage, smells, side effects, etc may lead to anger in carers or those experiencing incontinence.. In most people, anger arises from frustration, and frustration from unmet needs. A key to helping someone who is angry is to listen while you explore the needs that are unmet.. Lack of sleep due to frequent toileting at night or from some other reason such as stress, pain or depression is likely to leave the person and carer exhausted. Irritability, impatience and reduced tolerance can result and place severe strain on the health and relationships of both parties.. Sometimes, ...
Writing about frustrations, Jessica Massengale reminds scleroderma patients to voice their needs and let others know how actions can affect emotions.
Yes, I realize that shes 3, and 3 year olds are notoriously finicky, choosing to eat 5 or less foods at any given time. Yes, I realize that the overwhelming majority of parents with 3 year olds have food battles regularly. Yes, I realize shes trying to exert her independence and test her boundaries. Yes, I also realize that food is 1 thing that she feels like she can actually control in her life, and shes going to fight if we try to "question" that control. The real frustration is her caloric needs, and the fact that her BMI is nowhere close to the ideal for a CF patient. At her last appointment, it was about 15% when it really should be at least 50% to maintain optimum lung health. Judiths respiratory issues right now are minimal, which is fantastic, but if she cant get her weight up (ideally with reserves so she can "afford" the losses that could happen when shes sick) this has the potential to cause a lot of problems in the future as things do progress. How soon impacts could and would ...
Abstract:. Biomolecules are the prime information processing elements of living matter. Most of these inanimate systems are polymers that compute their own structures and dynamics using as input seemingly random character strings of their sequence, following which they coalesce and perform integrated cellular functions.

As projects and their environments become increasingly complex, the human dimension can get lost in the clamour. The authors refocus attention on this human dimension by identifying five frustrations that will be recognisable to every team leader:...........
Starting today on Good Morning America, ABC News is reporting a new measure of public discontent in this country, something were calling Americas Frustration Index. The bottom line: Fueled by political and economic discontent alike, its running high.
For example: who hasnt been in a hurry only to be stuck at a counter with a slow clerk? We all have, and we all know the frustration. So when Whoopie and her daughter end up stuck in the rental car line, we can instantly sympathize. And since this is a race, our frustration is compounded. But were not ready for the joke yet. When they finally get to the counter, and we assume they are over their hurdle, the film doubles down on our frustration: the clerk turns out to be the worlds dumbest trainee. . . and who cant relate to that moment? So you are further frustrated, but you also laugh at the situation -- not because you are laughing at the two women, with whom you sympathize, but because you are laughing at all the times this happened to you and how frustrated you felt (only to realize that in hindsight, getting upset was pretty silly). But thats not the joke. The joke comes a moment later, just as your frustration reaches its peak, when the clerk states that they have a car available. ...

OH! So get this, they are cleaning her ears out tonight because there is a lot of wax and they think that this fever just might be an indicator of, are you ready??, an ear infection. At this point, I would like to ask you to please refer to my post on Friday May 16th "Going to the Doctor". Did I or did I not say that I thought she might have an ear infection??????? Hmmmmm. Do they ever listen to Mom?? I think I will pull out my hair in frustration if this is what has been the underlying issue the entire time. We have been there for 12.5 days. Now they are wondering if she might have an ear infection. Im so exhausted from all the driving, being away from Ben, not to mention the expense of gas for my 120 mile round trip every day!! My stress level is through the roof! If all of this nonsense could have been avoided with a simple prescription of Amoxicillin, I will just .........grrrrr. Okay, so maybe Ill just give a sigh of relief. After all, she is immune compromised (DiGeorge Syndrome) and has ...

1) Patterns of Negative Self-Talk: These occur during frustrated moments in markets. We miss a trade, a trade blows through our stop, we give back our money on the day: all of these create frustration. This frustration then triggers an anger response that we direct toward ourselves. For example, we might find ourself saying, "Here it goes again! Other people are killing these markets, and I cant get it going." At that point, your frustration is no longer about the specific trade or market event, but is directed to *you as a person*. Trading should be about trading; not about you. After all, you wouldnt be boasting and crowing in the journal if the trade went your way. If you wouldnt like to hear your message coming from someone else (imagine your buddy at the workstation next to yours saying, "Whoa, dude, other people are killing these markets, and you cant get it going!") and if you wouldnt be speaking that way to your trading buddy, then you shouldnt be speaking that way to yourself. ...
Our discussion about how people handle being frustrated by their dogs brought out so many interesting points, and it got me to thinking:. First off, the more we know about dogs, the less frustrated we get. Frustration comes from an inability to affect the world around us, and once we understand who dogs are and how they learn, our ability to influence them increases significantly. As I think about it, the comparison of my frustration levels now and 25 years ago is like night and day.. Right now, there are really only two things that Will or Lassie do that have pushed my buttons in the last six months-Wills relentless stalking of Sushi, and Lassies tendency to get under foot when Im moving around the kitchen. My frustration with Will was a classic case of an inability to influence the world around me, because so much of what I had been trying wasnt working, and the behavior was constant and potentially dangerous. When I finally sat down and wrote myself out a treatment plan (plan # 3, fyi), ...
Much of today has been spent having fun with the airbrush. And some frustration and mild panic. The latter was caused by my own stupidity when trying to clean the colour channel mid-session - I accidentally dropped the trigger assembly out. After some frustration trying unsuccessfully to find instructions online for putting it back in, I finally worked it out for myself. Phew! I then hit more frustration after cleaning up at the end of the session - air was bubbling back into the cup. Fortunately I did find a guide online to likely causes and managed to sort it out ...
Conflicts of interest are a general feature of biological and social systems when resources are scarce or fates are not fully shared [for example, (36, 37)]. The dominant view in biology is that conflicts of interest are negative because conflict can lead to instability, gridlock, and increased mortality [for example, (25, 38-40)]. Yet, some data suggest that when conflicts of interest are expressed as controlled antagonisms (for example, fights) in which components can challenge one another at relatively low cost, this can foster invention and innovation (7, 41-43), facilitate information flow (44), allow components to test strategies (41), and even improve social cohesion (41). Hence, under some conditions, it appears that conflicts of interest can be beneficial.. We find support for this view. Specifically, we study a theoretical model of collective computation, based on data from a primate society model system. In the first stage of the model, pairs of components learn about each other ...
I currently have nine folders in my "Aborted Manuscripts" folder, each representing a scientific paper that wandered off, somewhere on the path between brain and CV. They range from a two page stream of consciousness spewed into MS Word after a 20 hr drive from Mobile to NY to escape Hurricane Dennis, to a manuscript that I dearly love but which has been rejected several times for reasons that are still not clear to me even now, seven years later. As I look through them, I am always overcome with a curious mix of emotions: I am impressed with how much work I and others have done, yet disgusted that I/we couldnt honour that work by getting it across the finishing line. There are tasty kernels of hope - "Maybe theres life in the old gal yet…" - and bitter pills of realism - "I dont even know where the specimens are anymore…", pangs of embarrassment for promises I didnt fulfill for respected colleagues, and stabs of anger/frustration at promises to me not fulfilled by others, and always a ...
Very intriguing thought....but I have serious doubts about Seahawks interest in Jones, and it has nothing to do with his medical condition. Though seems to have the physical make-up and skill-set to be a typical Seahawk, rumors of his lack of work ethic in practice seem to have merit. Most believe that he did not run at the combine because he had already gotten out of shape after the season, and was focusing on his pro day to run the 40. Carroll and Norton Jr would both be very familiar with Jones skill-set and work ethic during his short tenure at USC. Plus I am sure that Jones is not really happy with Carroll, because it is likely that Carroll brought him the news that his Trojan career was over. I could imagine that his anger/frustration would come out during his interviews with the Seahawks. He seems like a physical fit, but likely too many other issues that would cause the Seahawks to ...
The Pain Point. When a painful event occurs it is often unexpected or if anticipated, highly unwelcome. We may feel caught off guard, unprepared to handle change or the permanency of a new reality. This can lead to a myriad of emotions, often combinations of anger, sadness, fear, frustration, lack of control, hopelessness, and feelings of loss and uncertainty.. Hijacked. The intensity of our emotions have a way of taking over, morphing us into a darker, duller, heavier version of the Self we know. Pleasurable activities become undesirable. Sadness in the heart and preoccupation of the mind pull us away from routine and daily comforts, stripping us of what little familiarity remained. Social opportunities feel too draining and unappealing, while a loud voice of doubt starts to ask, "What do I have to give to others anyway?" Physical changes (weight gain or loss, dull complexion, breakouts, hair loss, etc.) have a tendency to occur as the body responds to stress and disease. Over time, frustration ...
Transitions, or shifts from one focus to another, can often cause problems for toddlers and other young children. This is especially true for children with ASDs. It is quite common for children with ASDs to require consistency in their environment in order to feel comfortable. Transitions that occur without proper support, such as a change in location (going from the classroom to the lunchroom), a change in playmates, or even a change in the daily schedule, almost always result in frustration and possibly disruptive behavior. This can be minimized in the classroom using schedules and daily routines, which are essential for creating an environment in which children with ASDs can confidently participate. A successful way to implement this in the classroom is with visual scheduling. Visual schedules provide child who have ASDs with cues about daily activities-what is supposed to be happening now, and what to expect in the near future. This helps reduce the level of anxiety and frustration that may ...
In a personal crisis, you may feel tense and angry. You may have mood swings and find yourself lashing out at others. Feelings of frustration can lead to family arguments. Or you may feel depressed and discouraged. These feelings may be normal and common. Other family members usually share some or all of your emotions, either directly or indirectly. While sharing your feelings of loss and despair, they may also have to deal with your depression, frustration, and anger. Allow yourself and other family members to express feelings. Dont talk about snapping out of it. This denies the seriousness of someones feelings. For more tips, see Communicating under pressure.. A personal crisis may force you to make rapid changes in your life. It can disrupt your habits and normal routines and give you too much or not enough free time. Maintain your daily routines as much as you can. Try to fill your time in satisfying and rewarding ways.. If you are dealing with unemployment or underemployment, you may be ...
Have you ever watched a small child playing with its toy, trying to put a round peg in a square hole? There is usually a display of interest, then frustration and maybe anger. In time, the child, due to frustration, quits.. I see this tendency often in conventional pet health care. The doctors try everyday possible to put that round peg in a square hole, searching for a new method or a new angle, but in the end, it just wont work. Unfortunately, for health care, giving up usually means letting the pet go.. When we take a close look at conventional medicine, it is not hard to see why this happens so often. The system is set up to treat the symptoms and by doing this, hopefully, the problem will be resolved. We dont recognize that most of the symptoms are a signal from the body that there is a problem. Instead of looking for the underlying problem, we focus on fixing the signal. Imagine that your car suddenly stars flashing a warning signal on your dashboard panel that there is a problem with ...
Josiah felt fear, anger and frustration. Frustration from not understanding how this all could be happening. He wanted this to be some ugly horrifying dream that he would some how be awaken from. He felt his hand tighten around his pistol. As he took a deep breath he fired another shot. He chose first to aim at the leg, Hoping this would somehow stop the man on his wild quest. The man fell back as the bullet drove into the dark meaty flesh of his thigh. as the blood appeared there was no cry out of pain. His teeth gnashed together and with a jittery jolt he dropped to the floor. With in seconds he rose again, to his feet. Clumsily as though his body and mind worked against each other he continued on with his gait. Like a rabid animal spew fell from his open mouth. The he closer he moved. Another shot was fired only this time it was a direct hit to the head. Skull fragments exploded as the man fell once more. This time he laid in a slump between them and Marie ...
The frustration of the physician who wrote this case scenario is real, and many physicians experience this frustration in their practices. Physicians receive forms from various disability-granting agencies requesting information regarding the initiation or perpetuation of disability claims.
41.30935 -82.97483 Although the Ohio EPA claims to have made at least some progress in identifying the mysterious cause of the Clyde areas unusually high incidence of childhood cancers, it had little to show for its efforts. The frustration shared by pollution investigators and parents alike was perhaps best summarized by statements that Chris Korleski made during a press conference that preceded the event:. CLYDE, Ohio - Although the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency claims to have made at least some progress in identifying the mysterious cause of the Clyde areas unusually high incidence of childhood cancers, it had little to show for its efforts at a community update in Clyde High School Monday night..

"Are we still guessing? Yes," Mr. Korleski said. "Right now the evidence isnt ...
WSJ: Did you have a particular boss who inspired you? Welch: In my first 16 years at GE, I never worked in the same town as my boss, so in some ways I never had a boss. But my first job was in Pittsfield, Mass, and I had a disaster once when a plant blew up. I had to go down to Connecticut to see my bosses and explain what had happened and they couldnt have been more supportive and encouraging. I clearly learned you have to make mistakes. Here Id blown up a plant and I wasnt fired, I wasnt yelled at or even criticized. WSJ: How did the frustrations you felt as an up and comer shape your management style? Welch: Initially I was part of a workplace where the reward system was incredibly level. I was on a small project, like several other GE newcomers. At the end of the year, we all got the exact same $1,000 raise. I said this isnt for me, I have to get out of here. But my boss asked me to stay and I never had that problem again. That experience made me aware of what the frustrations can be ...
Its interesting that people are using comics to express their feelings about mental illness. Its an example of how, gradually, mental health stigma is on the decline and people are becoming more open to talking about the difficult emotional problems that many of us face every day. Like depression, anxiety affects everyone differently. Its impossible represent every persons experience, but its nice to know that more people are willing to share their experiences through art, as the artists behind these comics have done, and hopefully provide some comfort to others ...
As to the healthy limit-setting, the stories here keep relating to two year olds and older. You wouldnt give in if your two year old wanted a second helping of ice-cream, they write, so how is it different letting your baby know you wont give in to comforting him when he helps sleep? This seems a very strange argument to me - there is a huge difference between the maturity of a babys brain and the brain of a two year old, in both its physiological response to stress and in the childs capacity to interpret events rationally. Weissbluth / Pierce also say that as your child gets older they will experience pain and frustration and get over it, so whats wrong with a bit of pain and frustration as a baby? Again, I dont really follow this argument. So my five year old might scream when she falls off her bike on the bitumen and skins her knee. It does not follow that it is of any benefit to put my baby on a bike and let her fall off onto the bitumen so that she can learn about pain and ...
Neat. My kids play on. They have no clue how I feel. Actually, my wife wouldnt either if I hadnt told her. Thats one of the things Ive learned I have to do as an asthmatic: when I feel bad I have to tell someone. I have to tell the people around me. I have to say something, even though I feel stupid doing it, because... well, what if I did stop breathing because of my asthma. What if... It has never happened and probably never will... to me, asthma isnt something that will kill me. Its basically just something that annoys me, and forces me to live a simple life in an allergy free environment. If only I could avoid brave moments like today and quit going into my basement ...

MIRACLE! I HAVE A SECOND CHILD ON THE WAY AND I AM AT 28 WEEKS NOW! | HABITUAL MISCARRIAGES | NATURAL MEDICINE FOR FERTILITY After a couple of months I was feeling better emotionally where I was very down previously. Miracle! I have a second child on the way and Im at 28 weeks now! Im very happy with the results. I have more energy and an improved quality of life. The increase in energy helped me a lot at home and at work. The herbs are very useful and my periods are always on time. I had several miscarriages and it wasnt a shock to get pregnant but the fact the baby is healthy - my family and friends are surprised. I didnt expect to get these results at all. Now I rely on natural medicine 100%. I shared with family and friends the good experience I received at the Agape Acupuncture, Inc. and Dr. Huang. The staff is very friendly and respectful. They do their job at the best level they can, and they are good listeners. I want to refer a friend of mine and my sister-in
Well, I feel like I am eating okay - but I am not losing any weight at all. I am really starting to believe that there is no way to lose weight by eating right - unless it is accompanied with a regular schedule of physical exercise.. This is daunting and really frustrating to me because I never have time to go to the gym and when I get home from work - all I want to do is eat and rest!!! And by eating, I dont mean pig out, I mean eat my dinner because I dont eat much and I am starving. Also, everyday this week I have set my alarm early in hopes that I would wake up and get to the gym between 7 and 8am. But I cant even get myself out of bed till 7:15 let alone be at the gym, etc at that time.. Thursday morning I am really dragging. I just feel low energy and exhausted. I dont know why I feel so worn. Maybe I didnt get enough "energy" food in my system on Wednesday. Maybe I just need more rest? My boyfriend said it was because I have not worked out in like a month... hmmm... ...
In the Star Trek episode, The Minds Eye, Governor Vagh was convinced the federation was supplying weapons to Kriosian rebels. Picard replied with the phrase, "Quvatlh ghuycha baQa," at which point Vagh complimented him on his mastery of Klingon cursing.. Qu (task) and vatlh (hundred) make up the basis of the word Quvatlh (pronounced); thus, "a hundred tasks," frustration with an excessive workload and a lack of appropriate resources. ghuycha , a general invective similar to "Damn it," consists of ghuy (an invective; "damn") and cha (two). Finally, baQa or baka (invective) indicates a frustration with ones own inability to accomplish a task.. Quvatlh uses the Klingon Q; you should pronounce this sound as in petaQ. It also uses the tlh sound; you may find producing this sound extremely difficult. You can produce the Klingon tlh sound by saying an English t while breathing a whispered l; you may have trouble doing this with any level of force at first. tlh may sound similar to an ...

Just when Im smack in the middle of writing up a thoughtful analysis of how Im fixing my (non-symmetric, right-side-dominant) swim stroke and my (drag-inducing, lack-of-a) kick, I had a revelation in the pool yesterday. It came after about a month of frustration and stressing about why I dont seem to be swimming any faster after weeks of hard, and long, workouts. Ive been working on improving so many things using video and drills and fins and my snorkel. And I feel like a different person swimming these days.. Im working on all the things experts say will help me swim faster (from the best-rated online sources, coaches, and books) but nothing feels natural, and nothing feels "right" (yet?). I do feel stronger. And I feel faster. But my lap-times are slower. I pace and shake my head and jump up and down in frustration and discouragement. And I come back to the problem on a daily basis. Yesterday, I got in the pool and tried letting go of all the things I "know" and all the things Ive been ...
Yes it would be good if this process could be expedited. I have been trying for weeks to get this medication for this patient. I spoken to several people at both Catamaran (the pharmacy benefit agency) and Wellmark. None would give their full names, and none had the authority to approve the medication if certain questions were not answered yes and there was no room for individual consideration. Yesterday, I saw the patient to get the release sign, and I noticed that the appeal and release are to be mailed (postal mailed that is) to different addresses, and only the release can be faxed. I am going to assume that there might be some difficulty in getting these to the same place in a timely manner for review, and during this time the patient continues to suffer. There seems to be no mechanism for electronic submission. This process has taken now hours of my time, and it has been weeks. I am going to attach the appeal letter in the hopes that perhaps as medical director you can get it to the ...
Frustration is not discontent but lack of reward in your profession. Discontent mean you give up altogether whereas in frustration you are prepared to put in more hard work to hone your skill for better, higher results and quick.
Ive had a very, very good case manager, [Name] who came on the scene in the June after the accident. She was exceptional, from June until she went off and have a baby this time last year. She had been exceptional and yes, its cost the insurers a lot of money, you know, because I was calling her every day, was talking things over with her, debating things with her, asking opinions. She may have done more than - well I think she did do a lot more of what I understand a normal case managers does, but she was exemplary and she was my rock, actually. She was my rock. For the period she as with me, she was my rock. Shes now back with me. Shes back from maternity leave and shes now back with me. And okay, things have settled down and I wont use her as much. But shes the only person, I have to say, who Ive felt that I could ring up and say what about this, what about that, and know that I would get - I would get supported or, you know, she would give me - always used to give me and sometimes ...

Thank you Danoli as usual you have put things into perspective for me. Yesterday I was just so frustrated that I had no answers but you are of course right and thats pretty much what they said, they were hopeful it had gone, I guess you cant really be with my history. You are of course also right about that the later. Live life to the full or you dont live at all. Someone once said to me that the only difference between a rut and a grave was the depth of the hole, a matra to live by I think. I had my first day back at work today and it unfortunately feels like Ive never been away, straight back into the rut. So Im taking this as a sign. A sign to re-evaluate my life, something I was going to do originally after the first cancer but the fear was just overwhelming. I can deal with the uncertainty but I dont think I can live with the same sh** different day not after the last two years! It may take a few months but then its onwards and upwards I say ...

Editors note: If you read my daily notes piece tonight, you will see where I get messages in the shower. One of the messages I received tonight was "your next phase is not going to turn out the way you expect." Then I heard I will be guided - no worries - just let it all flow. When I came across this article, with this title above, just a couple hours later, I knew this was Universal validation. You see I have been feeling quite stuck in a couple of areas in my life and have had these plans to turn it around. However, as I am beginning to feel, as painful as it is (it is a mourning process), it is imperative to let go of expectations, even hopes and dreams and plans and just BE. And yes, I know the pain of letting go of dreams, especially ones we have had for years if not decades. I know the frustration all to well of making plans to change this or that only to see affirmative results. Oh god do I know that frustration. I am experiencing all of this right now and the pain is very deep and very ...
