Problem: Civil and Public servants are depressed

Problem: Civil and Public servants are depressed
Solution :Tell the leaches  to go find a decent, honest job for a start?
.
NOW I HAVE HEARD ALL KIND OF REASONS WHY THE BAD EMPLOYEES WERE, ARE SUPPOSEDLY JUSTIFIED IN NOT DOING THEIR WORK PROPERLY BUT SOME HOW THE EXCUSES ALL APPEAR VOID WHEN COMPARED WITH THE OUTPUT OF THE GOOD WORKERS.
 .
Everyone should know by now that self worth, self esteem is a direct product of how you see yourself, or how others see you, do treat you but it is also related  directly to what you do.. which can lead to One’s depression.
 .
Now do nothing at all or do mostly bad things and you will feel guilty, you will have a low self worth.
 .
Let someone one oppress, abuse you and it can drive you next in reality  to personal insanity now as well..
 .
Recognition of the problem is a major part of the solution here.. In older adults, symptoms of depression may also include signs of dementia like memory problems and confusion, feelings of extreme irritability or anxiety, pacing and fidgeting. Depression can show itself in headaches, back or muscle aches, racing heart rates, stomach or other gastrointestinal upsets, which can be alleviated if the physical symptoms are prevented or managed with treatment. Other health conditions including heart attack, stroke, hip fractures, and macular degeneration are known to be associated with development of depression. Older women are at a greater risk for depression, and women in general are twice as likely as men to become seriously depressed. Depression is not a normal part of aging, it tends to be a consequential apsect of one’s life. Depression often is an untreated sickness.   Undiagnosed and untreated depression often has serious negative personal consequences
.
First find out if you are personally responsible for your depression
and next start doing good things instead like eating properly, stop consuming drugs, alcohol and cigarettes too, try  getting enough sleep, and managing properly your purchases, expenditures, etc. During the winter season, it’s normal to get the “blues” and to feel as if the weight of the world is closing in all around. Part of the “blues” stem from a lack of routine or exercise, little or not enough light, and less interaction with others.  Most people still do possess the ability to bounce back from the blues and start new with a fresh burst of energy.  80 percent of older adults recover from depression after receiving appropriate treatment, actions.
 .
or next  find out  if someone really is responsible for it.. and when you do know who that someone is do call the police, do loudly object, oppose all human rights abuses, do now expose that criminal to all.. stop the abuse. Shout the sin from the Housetop.
 .
Camouflaging the depression with doctors, pills will not help much in the long run.. * see note below https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/cure-for-stress-high-blood-pressure-heart-attack/
  .
Now as far as the civil and public servants they seem to be some of the biggest liars, crooks, thieves, incompetents, pretenders, human rights oppressors I encounter and of course they deserve to be depressed for it. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/she-was-selfish-self-absorbed-self-centered/

A recent study by the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses found that workers in 39 of 49 occupations in New Brunswick collected more in the public sector. Combining the difference in wages and benefits (including pension benefits), the advantage enjoyed by public employees was estimated to be nearly 29 per cent. Based on salary alone, the earnings gap was 14 per cent. Taxpayers are already covering the cost of generous civil service wages and benefits, including the payroll deductions invested in employee pension plans. http://telegraphjournal.canadaeast.com/opinion/article/915949

Depression among public servants Canada’s biggest ‘public health crisis’: expert   , Canwest News Service January 9, 2010 OTTAWA — Depression among Canada’s public servants is the country’s biggest “public health crisis,” says a leading mental health expert.  It’s an affliction among the country’s nurses, teachers, police, military and bureaucrats at all levels of government, undermining innovation, productivity, quality of service, policy-making and even the relevance of our democratic institutions, said Bill Wilkerson, founder of Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Mental Health. Stress, burnout and depression is evident in all workplaces, especially in times of economic turmoil. But few employers have as profound a problem as the federal public service where the health effects of mental distress has been termed an epidemic.  “The public service is a tsunami of distractions — meetings, everything questioned, delegated, people moving … and no one is really in charge,” said Wilkerson. “It’s the most transient, fluid, unsettling work environment on the planet, so why wouldn’t people be anxious and in distress? They are human beings.” Disability claims in Canada are climbing and between 30 to 40 per cent of them are for depression. In the public service, mental health claims doubled between 1991 and 2007 and now account for 45 per cent of all claims. Meanwhile, the number of other health claims has dropped. Studies of federal executives found three quarters felt on the verge of burnout or extreme fatigue. More startling was that 15 per cent of the top executives and one in four entry-level executives who felt “verbally harassed and tormented.” Executives in the private sector typically feel less stress because they have more control. Wilkerson argues an inertia and paralysis have gripped the public service that’s compounded by an “ambiguity” around who is in charge. Such an environment takes its toll on people, many whom leave work every day frustrated and feeling they have accomplished nothing. And he pins some of the blame on the cascading effect of the diminished role of Parliament, MPs, and cabinet ministers, which came with the massive centralization of power in the office of the prime minister. On top of that, partisan politics has become factious, “vicious and emotionally violent,” among MPs, all of which trickles down to the workings of the public service, he said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper put mental health on the agenda when he created the Mental Health Commission, headed by former senator Michael Kirby, to help develop a national mental health strategy. Harper spoke about its ravages and the need to break the stigma of depression and mental illness at the funeral of former MP David Batters, who committed suicide after a battle with depression.  The public service is heading into uncertain times. Speculation is rife that the public service will be the first place the Harper government turns for spending cuts when wrestling with its mounting deficit. There are rumblings of changing or cutting public servants’ generous pension and benefits plans. But Wilkerson argued the big savings will come by reforming management in the public service, which will go a long way to reducing disability claims. He said the across-the-board cuts that government’s typically resort to will only eat into the public service’s productivity “Pension reform and benefit reconstruction will not save the government money until it creates a work environment that protects mental health and the disabling effects of job stress and depressive disorder. Depression is the public health crisis in the government of Canada. Period.” http://www.canada.com/health/Depression+among+public+servants+Canada+biggest+public+health+crisis+expert/2424993/story.html

 Reality- Mid Life crisis, depression. This syndrome is a familiar one. BOTH MEN AND WOMEN AFTER a certain age — and it is not almost always men — do wake up one day and do realize  that they still are no longer the center of the universe THAT THEY HAD WANTED TO BECOME. IT IS DEPRESSING. Others  fail to look their way, co-workers don’t scurry to fetch them coffee and bosses stop thinking of them a long time ago as someone on the rise. Mommy’s spoiled child rather. Overly self serving, self centered, overly Ambitious. So they consider the alternatives, such as recalibrations, adjustments, or a career changes, clothing style changes,  and/or using their jobs resources even  to attain their still rather unattainable goals, or by developing a new strategy.. but mostly none of it tends to work, it merely continues their self defined fiascos, for their PERSONAL DESIRES,  goals were unrealistic to start of with. So they continue a life of vanity, hubris, malice, even violence, anger, envy, jealousy, rage as well too often, plus their still false  arrogance and conceit .  They next  still hold on to  their false notions. They have their own developed, defined strategies. And to anyone who disagrees, it’s dam-you, for you’re nothing, you’re a nobody, you’re pathetic LOSER. If we do now open our eyes we all can see it in Canada daily  over and over, everywhere too. Losers making it all worse for themselves because they naively refuse to live with the reality of who they basically are still too. Reminds me of a crooked lawyer who often had lied on his resumes and who next wanted to be a judge desperately. We do not need  any more perverse judges, we have too many of them already to start of with. This also sounds to me that our Prime Minister Stephen Harper is in a depression, facing a mid life crisis himself
 .
 The notion that the Canadian government, all of it’s civil and public servants  should be at work, dealing with all of the problems of the country, Canada,  has a lot of resonance with most of the people. Parliament for  them still provides an important mechanism of democratic accountability. Stephen Harper’s Proroguement represents a blatant attempt to subvert this avenue of promised even accountability. PM Stephen Harper and his  government seriously underestimated the strong negative reaction to the decision to prorogue, for now things appear to have backfired for the Conservatives, with a surprisingly strong public awareness and outrage over the decision to prorogue, 63.6 per cent of those polled agreed that “suspending Parliament is antidemocratic and the government had slid from 42 per cent down to 35 per cent support as the Afghan detainee issue festered related to an issue of fundamental trust, accountability, disclosure, and too many people were worried there was a cover-up going on .Harper’s prorogue decision is really aimed at shutting down all parliamentary committees, particularly the special committee which had been investigating allegations that prisoners handed over by Canadian soldiers to Afghan authorities have been routinely tortured. Harper’s  use of proroguement sets a dangerous precedent, as it is being used to shut down debate and avoid confidence votes that threaten to bring the government down. It makes MPs even less able to hold governments accountable than they already are. Clearly Harper’s  pollster or someone in the Prime Minister’s Office made a very bad call.  ” Harper is  closer now to losing his government than  to winning a majority,”   Canada’s “intelligentsia” are particularly offended at proroguement. The Web 2.0 generation, such as the over 100,000 who joined the ‘Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament’ Facebook group, clearly has become politically engaged.  And another Facebook group that grew rapidly is  the one opposing the sale of NB Power to Quebec. The  sleeping giants have been awakened and they are not about to go back to sleep.

* I am not without sympathy, understanding for elderly or troubled people who do suffer depression.. Note this  the basic vitamins found in our common foods that help also to reduce one’s personal stress and anxiety.. now next   not eating properly one becomes more stressed and anxious as a result, and manifest depression as well.. and what the classic treatment for depression is time, healing, by giving them proper nourishment, and proper rest and sleep.. in this case supplemented by proper pain killers, not improper pain killers  and likely given proper sleeping pills too.
 .
 Which also reminds a lot of the over the countered medicine does not do what it’s advertisers falsely do claim, and  also they tend to have negative side effects that they have omitted to tell us all too..

“Experiencing next a panic attack has been said to be one of the most intensely frightening, upsetting and uncomfortable experiences of a person’s life.  When panic attacks occur, you might think you’re losing control, having a heart attack or even dying. A panic attack is a response of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The most common symptoms may include trembling, dyspnea (shortness of breath), heart palpitations, chest pain (or chest tightness), hot flashes, cold flashes, burning sensations (particularly in the facial or neck area), sweating, nausea, dizziness (or slight vertigo), light-headedness, hyperventilation, paresthesias (tingling sensations), sensations of choking or smothering, and derealization. Panic attacks are distinguished from other forms of anxiety by their intensity and their sudden, episodic nature  They are often experienced in conjunction with anxiety disorders and  panic attacks are not always indicative of a mental disorder. Panic attacks were once dismissed as nerves or stress, but they’re now recognized as a real medical condition. Although panic attacks can significantly affect your quality of life, treatment — including medications, psychotherapy and relaxation techniques to help prevent or control panic attacks — is very effective. the symptoms of a panic attack appear suddenly, without any apparent cause. They may include  •racing or pounding heartbeat (palpitations);
•chest pains;
•stomach upset;
•dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea;
•difficulty breathing, a sense of feeling smothered;
•tingling or numbness in the hands;
•hot flashes or chills;
•dreamlike sensations or perceptual distortions;
•terror: a sense that something unimaginably horrible is about to occur and one is powerless to prevent it;
•a need to escape;
•fear of losing control and doing something embarrassing; and
•fear of dying.
A panic attack typically lasts for several minutes, is one of the most distressing conditions that a person can experience, and its symptoms can closely mimic those of a heart attack..”

Clearly now I got really tired of being lied to and abused by much too many professional bullies, perverts that I encounter too often in life now still,  so I next started to openly, personally expose them and to make them reap real personal negative consequences rightfully here too..  Here is another simple fact of undeniable truth of life.. All of us seem to spend a lot of time trying to find our personal happiness in life, and many seem to fail at it, so we then tend to try to blame our failure here next on being the fault of others..  The problem firstly now here often starts with one’s false definition of happiness. Happiness generally, firstly is doing a job well that you like to do and so  many people are unhappy cause they are also unrealistic, and lazy.  Most persons also next do not become deliberately despots or perverts in life from birth, it is a decision they generally do on their own make later in life.. Our self-worth, self esteem is a direct result of the good things you do , have done.. do the bad things and you will have a low self worth, poor self acceptance, and it is a waste of time thus to blame it mostly on the others.
