Don't worry, be happy :)
Focus on life issues.
Ask Arlene MD is to focus on anything that has to do with mental health. In the past I've written about relationships but now I would like to focus more on mental health and try to be educational and entertaining. Life is always about relationships. These are either male, female, parent, child, neighbors, teachers, and the list is infinite. How we interact with others define us. If we are angry, we can develop toxic relationships. If we have a better attitude, then we will be happy. Happiness is really a state of mind. You chose to feel happy. You chose to be sad. You choose to be angry. You chose to be mean. Hopefully if you read this blog you will use it for insight, not to attack others. The purpose is to try to make people have a better and positive look at life. Enjoy!

I'd rather walk 3 miles on my high heels then listen to my husband screaming in the car!
This is for all you ladies that have been caught inside the car with your husbands while they are having a fit. It doesn't matter what the argument is about. It usually starts with a small disagreement between the both of you. Suddenly, the jerk starts getting loud, too loud for your comfort. You tell him to lower his voice and then he turns up the radio, (like if he were 6 years old), and continues to scream . At this point you have to decide what is best. What is more comfortable for you? Is walking 3 miles on dirty roads with no sidewalk at 10 PM better then have to listen to this guy? I would say yes. You get out of the car and and have the pleasure of not having to hear him, you get in some good exercise, and you let out steam while you are walking. All is good until other jerks in cars stop by to offer you a ride. What do these idiots think? Do they really think that I want a ride with a loser? At this point you look at the loser straight into his eyes, pull out your cell phone and scream at him, "I will call 911 if you don't disappear buster!" It works like a charm. A few pointers here; if you decide to do this maneuver, be sure you are at walking distance to your final destination, i.e. at least 3 miles or less. Also consider how fit are you. I go to the gym 3-4 times a week and power walk on the treadmill for more then an hour. Walking is not a big deal for me. Consider your safety in the area you are to walk. Look at you shoes. Are these high heels comfortable enough to go the distance? Once you commit yourself to walking, don't get into your husbands car when he comes back to pick you up! No Way! That would be self defeating. Once you get home, don't talk to your spouse for days. Don't get into his car again, no matter how much he begs, and beg he will! Remember, first time, shame on him, the second time, shame on me. A word of advice, ladies, next time take your car!
