sometimes nothing helps, we all know that
then it's time for prayer and supplication:
pick your version:
1. the meditative version:
"God grant me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference"
2. the Est version:
"If it really bothers you ,and you can't do anything about it, don't worry about it"
3. the socially concerned version:
"Here's to those who wish me well, the rest of you can go to hell"
4. the shorthand soundbite version:
( and NO - the first one doesn't have a damn thing to do with any other problem medical or psychological, even hough it is used in many applications - it's PART of a longer prayer written by Niebuhr in the around 1920, and HE was translating it into 20th Centuryspeak from some ancient source, so don't get apoplectic on me and choke on your bar coasters)
