Physically, the colon is simply not designed to store large amounts of old fecal matter. Stores of old fecal matter are not only breeding grounds for harmful bacteria and dangerous parasites, but the extra garbage causes the colon to distend and expand. This causes the walls of the colon to thin out (like blowing up a balloon more and more). As the walls extend out, they press on and compress other organs in the abdominal cavity. what garcinia cambogia should i buy weight loss Blurring Of Vision best diets to lose weight fast Proteins: eggs (2-5 in a meal), chicken breast or thigh, beef, fish, pork obese weight loss pills The required quantity of Capsicum to produce enough weight loss effect in a person is about 10 grams per day. A certain company promoting slimming pills feels that this quantum of red chilly or its equivalent in capsaicinoids might irritate the mouth or stomach mucosa, so they have used a unique design to give a special coating on the ingredients. This coating of the capsules will prevent the contents getting in contact with the mouth as well as the stomach. The specific place where the ingredients have to be released is the intestines. As the acidity of the stomach is different from that of the intestines, the coating of the capsule will dissolve in the intestines only releasing the contents exactly in the place where it is digested and absorbed into the blood stream.

You can’t scare me.

Susan M - December 18, 2006

Heather has a wonderful post over at Mormon Mommy Wars about the strength you find within yourself when you’re faced with trials, particularly ones involving your children. It made me think of something I received at work during a company-wide lunch presentation about stress. The woman presenting it had cute little gifts for everyone based on their situation or personality. She gave me a notepad that has a picture of a woman with three small kids that says, “You can’t scare me. I have children.”

How true.

But does that make the experience of having children seem like a negative thing? I don’t think so. Having children has taught me so much about myself.

It got me thinking of what other experiences I’ve had that have made me stronger. I could just as easily say:

You can’t scare me. I’ve lived in a gang neighborhood. I’ve been robbed, mistaken for a prostitute, and seen children walk by, reeking of crack. I’ve lived in terrible poverty.

You can’t scare me. I’ve lost more family members than I can count on one hand. Mental illness runs in my family. Drugs. Prison. You name it, we’ve got it.

You can’t scare me. I’ve nearly died. More than once. I’ve been in a bank robbery.

And I survived.

But those are all negative or traumatic things. What I wished I’d thought of first was:

You can’t scare me. I’ve seen the protection and guidance of the Spirit in action. I’ve received miraculous answers to prayers. I’ve experienced firsthand the power of a Priesthood blessing. I know how to receive personal revelation. I’ve lived the gospel and have a testimony of the blessings it brings. I know that God lives.

  2. Susan, What you’ve been thru would scare the liver out of me!

    I think I’d say “You can scare me”, fortunately most of the time I can overcome the scare me part thru faith and prayers….but things still scare me!

  3. Well, I am terrified of spiders.

    You think the above is bad, you should see some of the spiders I’ve encountered. As big as your palm.

  4. Susan,
    Thanks for the post. I think a lot of what you’re saying has to do with the way God feels about us. He would rather that we use His gifts and blessing than see us hurt. Horrible experiences might draw us to Him but He would rather us take His road. He would rather that we humble our own selves than be compelled.
