Yes, I did find something in a local beverage store called, 'Our Daily Red'. It's an organic red blend without preservatives, no detectable sulphites, vegan, 12.4% alcohol, vinted and bottled in Sonoma, California. 25 oz. for 8.99.

It's good tasting and hearty. I sometimes add a little water..:)


 

Oh, I've heard of that. I heard it was good.

Have you tried wine in a box? The wine is in a plastic bag so air doesn't get in.

 

You mean Black Box? Yes, I have and it's pretty good too..:) Our Daily Red says to use it up within 24 hrs but I didn't and ended up throwing away half a bottle. But the Black Box does last quite a while after opening. There's even a large size that sits on the counter with a spigot..:lol:

I've had some sort of... revelation today. Regarding my blood phobia, the past, labels, frameworks. 

 

I have had issues with blood for years, since childhood, fainting episodes would accompany. Of late it played upon my anxiety and obsessive thinking. I was stuck thinking about the inside of my body all the time, that I could "not escape blood", that I would have to live in constant fear of what was quite frankly normal. (Hence phobia = irrational fear). I would look at my body with anxiety, as if I had x-ray vision and start getting uncomfortable with my insides, afraid that if I kept thinking about it I'd pass out or something. 

 

 

Today though, I looked at blood images in google, but I tried to framework it differently.. I said to myself "it's paint", and.. in seconds, my emotional state shifted so dramatically, in that I could look at these images without an issue. Because I frame worked it, changed my perception. Because what else is blood but just a red liquid? I fear no other red liquids.  

 

From childhood, I learned the fear from an accident. Ever since that time I would panic at blood, I did not faint in very early childhood at it, but it used to frighten me and I'd freak out, and in reaction my mother would be frightened for me and get stressed. I came to rely on carrying plasters (band aids) everywhere as comfort blanket, for her and me. As years went by  I then experienced fainting spells. My fear then became fear of fainting at blood and as a result fear of blood. 

 

But now it's as if I can look back to it, like you do looking back to silly memories of being scared of monsters under the bed. Quite a mental shift happening. I won't say it's an instant cure... because learned instincts are hard to break, but who knows? It's almost as if.. the blood I feared no longer exists in this world, but has been replaced by something else, a new red liquid that I'm not afraid of, but is still blood... crazy!

 

Part of me is thinking "don't hold your breath, it's only a one off, early days", but I also think that might be negative thinking, that a part of the phobic area of my brain is trying to hang on perhaps and telling me "you're not over it, and should still be afraid!" So, there is fear perhaps of that in it's self, that my irrational fear will remain, but I don't know, if I can do what I did.. it's a very powerful thing...

Reviling the filing: One of my sons is planning to come help me reorganize my filing "systems." After teaching for about 35 years, being married for almost 40 years, and still preparing tax returns for friends and relatives,  I need a complete overhaul. Given, I'm going to check to assure official papers are copied and in my go bag.  Before I start, I would like to have a plan of action, as I have tried to attack this before and have been overwhelmed.  My current situation seems (to others) better organized than it really is. Yes, I am able to find things in a W.C. Fields sort of way, but need to streamline my approach. I also have a wand scanner and would like some advice on what makes sense to scan vs keeping hard copies. My son suggests using my printer to scan. There are some expensive home offices available online, but that is not what I'm intending to do.

We keep a go-bag in each vehicle and I do not include any paperwork that might have confidential information in it. I decided to scan all of my documents and password protect them, then store them on two separate cloud services.
