Depression has been a scourge of mankind since the dawn of ages. Vivid images from historical and religious texts describe sufferers of the illness we now know as depression. An equal opportunity illness, it exempts no one based on race, sex, creed, religion, social status, or nation of origin. It affects one in five of us and its potentially lethal outcome--suicide--is the third leading cause of death among American teenagers. What is this illness that costs us $44 billion each year? What does it look like? Is it moodiness? Is it the result of a character flaw? Can we just snap out of it?. Understanding Depression explores the reality of the illness from the author's twin perspectives as a psychiatrist and as a family member who experienced the tragedy of depression first hand. Using examples from her practice, the author discusses the different types of depression, the kinds of people at risk, and the risk factors of suicide. In understandable terms the book looks at the way the brain works and how the body communicates with it, including recent discoveries about how the process fails in depression. The book mirrors the author's belief that understanding depression is only half the battle. Taking personal responsibility for fighting the beast is equally important. Treatment methods, discussed here, include various forms of psychotherapy, different classes of antidepressant medications, and the controversial subjects of shock treatment and involuntary treatment. Understanding Depression also offers tips for fighting depression day by day. Finally, the book takes a look at the cutting-edge research that holds promise for better management of depression and at new weapons to combat it. Patricia Ainsworth is a psychiatrist in private practice and is an assistant professor (part time) in the department of psychiatry and human behavior at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

God is truly amazing! "From a strong-willed child, to a rebellious teenager, to a self-confident young adult who could do everything on her own, to a young mother in the pit of depression, to a broken and surrendered child of God," author Cindy Foor spent the first 30 years of her life searching for a real relationship with God. She'd known about Him all her life, but something was missing. Very late one special night, she discovered the missing piece of the puzzle and surrendered her life to her Lord. In the years that followed, God began His refining work on her heart and in her life. Just one way God revealed His amazing power to Cindy was through the eyes of her four-year-old son when he asked his mommy, "Can God walk on His eyeballs?" This book is a humble, honest, humorous compilation of the 10 most amazing things God personally taught Cindy over the last 20 years. Through her struggles and trials, God brought victory, freedom, and intimacy to her life. Cindy's sense of humor, her transparency, and her willingness to share openly from her life experiences will have you laughing and crying. It's a great ride!

Includes free decals and masking foilHighly detailed publication covering the extensively used World War II German medium tank, Panzer III AUSF. J/L/M, now revised and expanded. The Panzer III was intended as the primary battle tank of the German forces. It outclassed most of the tanks of the time, in that it had a three man turret, which greatly improved effectiveness in battle. However, when it initially met the KV and T-34 tank designs it proved to be inferior in armor and gun power. To meet the growing need to counter these tanks, the Panzer III was upgunned with a longer, more powerful 50 millimeter (1.97 in) cannon and received more armor.Containing dozens of archive black and white and color photos, including close-up and walk around shots and color artwork profiles, this is an ideal reference for both the enthusiast and modeler, with masking foil included.About the SeriesPhotosniper is a classic series of highly illustrated photo books on the best machines of war, creating, with numerous images, a close-up, walk-around view for each aircraft or vehicle. With emphasis on the key features of each machine, including their variations, artwork, markings, insignia and modifications, customizing and creating a model could not be easier. Includes a free decal sheet.

Clem Imrie and Colin Johnson This book stems from an unusual meeting held in The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in March 2007. Enthusiastic doctors in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic diseases were arranged in small groups to discuss specific unsolved/partially clinical problems and suggest the way forward. In some instances, the recommendations were initial improved longitudinal studies, while in others better double-blind randomized st- ies. The recommendations were then presented on the second day before the total 40 plus participants who added their input. Finally, the mechanics of initiating the proposals were arranged. The editors are most thankful to the authors from the meeting, who have ass- bled the various contributions to this stimulating volume. xi Part I Potential Trials in Acute Pancreatitis Chapter 1 Acute Pancreatitis in Intensive Care John Kinsella, Barry Clements, Euan Dickson, Thierry Dugernier, and Martin Hughes 1.1 Intr oduction Severe acute pancreatitis is associated with the development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Hypoxemia is a hallmark of acute pancreatitis and respiratory failure is the most common single organ failure in this disease. In the most severely ill patients mul- organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) and multi-organ failure (MOF) occur. Intensive care with multiple organ support is necessary.
