    a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, lived Rose and her family……..
    that would be the explanation

    Rose never seems to have any serious trouble. Great husband with a steady job, angelic kid, nice house, enough money, wonderful friends, mom and neighbors. And yet she is wasting her whole day leaning against a tree. What exactly does she have to ‘let be’ exactly, I wonder? And who takes care of her kid and her chores while she does?

    Everyone has problems no matter how good things are. That’s life.

    I wondered that myself. Let’s not forget her adorable kitty Peekaboo!

    Rose doesn’t spend her whole time leaning against her ‘let things be’ tree, just when she’s stressed out.

    Well yes, but this would be more believable and have more to do with the story, if we actually knew what she is stressed about. Almost every day we are shown her pretty much perfect life and then suddenly, blam let things be tree or blam dungeon of despair* for pretty much no reason at all.

    Stress doesn’t have to be about anything. I think my own life is just about perfect and no health problems (no meds, and I’m 75) but even with a “perfect” diet -vegetarian, no alcohol, cheese or meat, I can’t get BP readings to stay reliably low. I just have to keep busy DOING stuff all the time.

    At least HBP is my only problem, because I refuse to take meds. If I’m going to ingest poison, it has to be one that I enjoy!

    Dazz, Love Ya! Stay away from prepared meals & canned sauces. That will help lower salt intake and is good for lower BP. It’s painless & drug free! :-)

    High BP is horrid. Ever considered it might not come from stress? In my family it’s totally hereditary. My great-grandmother had it, died of it age 80. My grandfather had it and despite medication had his first heart attack at age 40. After three heart attacks, a triple bypass heart surgery and a shiny new heart valve he died age 69 of (almost) unrelated causes. My mom already had high BP at age 12. Now she’s 46, on medication and thankfully still heart attack free. No kind of diet, stress reduction, meditation etc. ever made a lick of difference for any of them. Their high BP wasn’t caused by stress, they were stressed because of the high BP.

    Even if it’s hereditary, I think stress is involved. This isn’t heaven after all. Sometimes we are not aware of what causes the stress. It’s just that hereditary factors make it much more likely, if not inevitable.

    Rose is too ‘lean’.

    I married into a family that gets dysthymia, seemingly no matter what. Dysthymia is a form of depression that can make one feel miserable, but does not render one incapable of getting up and going to work, or even getting up to go to the bathroom. Most of the descendants have it. No matter how outwardly ideal their existence is, many of these souls still need meds in order to exist without sniveling or snapping people’s heads off. I’m glad I’m connected with this clan, though, and would do it again.

    Now that i think about it, Rose does seem to have many manic episodes too. Maybe the explanation is that she is bipolar. That could explain the highs and lows without an apparent outside reason.
