How To Go To Chiang Rai (From Bkk)

Recommended Posts

I suppose I should bask in this momentary glow of acceptance. Soon enough someone will come along to remind me that I am not plebeian or industrious enough for my opinions to possess any weight or validity on this forum. :D

Yeah, exactly. your not allowed to agree with him Garry. :D

Perish the though ! :whistling:

I suppose we all have anecdotal evidence to support our beliefs. Superimposing an experience of our own onto another individuals unique situation often does not work, however. For example I doubt our 22 year old cat lover is in need of medication, as in the example.

I still think it is a bit irresponsible to tell someone we have never met and only know online, to walk away from their first job and one they have only just started.

Usually all a person needs is someone to listen to them and give them the confidence to move forward on their own. That is after all what a therapist does. They don't necessarily tell patients what to do, rather they help them look at things differently. I believe that is the gist of the story above as well.

Sometimes doing nothing is less harmful than doing the wrong thing, however well intentioned. Simply listening is often very helpful and far from impotent. Then again in an online environment, I guess one can get away with almost anything.

The medication in the example, was wrongly prescribed. It only made things worse.

What works is the person themselves altering their perception of the situation. The world doesn't change, only ones' reaction to it.

The key point is empowerment, the possibility of walking away from a situation reminds a person that change is possible.

Belittling someone's tales, calling them 'a child' or a '22 year old cat lover' is listening is it? It most certainly isn't 'doing nothing'.

As you say, in an online environment, I guess one can get away with almost anything.

However, having empathy and being able to demonstrate that, might be more useful.

Or, do nothing, either would be an improvement.

I just look on anna as another daughter...this time I am a bit older and may not make the same mistakes I did with my own and can be less dogmatic and leave her more free to do her own thing. It is refreshing to see a young person finding her way and at least asking for ideas about her concerns. All our words can do are to give her different ways to make her own decision in a way which I am sure will be for the best just as with my own daughter who often ignored what I said but kept to most of the same values I had expressed over her growing up. Anna is grown up but admits to liking to be given advice...a nice trait.

I am sure whatever she does will be succesful and I value the oportunity to see another younger person grow up and share some of her joys and troubles.

Apart from the OP already agreeing with me, she is indeed 22 and a child in comparison to me at my advanced age. Her blog name is Anny The Silly Cat. Her blog title is A Kitten Journey. Sounds to me like she is next in line for induction into the Hello Kitty Hall of Fame. :D

Colorful language or belittling I suppose depends on who is reading and what painful life experiences may have colored their perception of certain words. :) Not much I can do about that.

You're still quite stunned and having difficulty coming to terms with people agreeing with you here aren't you? B)

Yes, uncharted territory for me here on the forum, I guess. A stark contrast to the sometimes embarrassing level of praise and adulation showered upon me on my blog. I suppose it provides some balance. ;)

Sit-down is more my style. Stand-up is too tiring. Anyway I have to get back to answering comments on the blog. It is so embarrassing. ;)

update...

i'd admitted to the hospital on monday night due to headache..throw up with the blood and hard breathing. the doc gave me Voltaren, Carergot (and miracid due to my stomachache problem) but it didnt help at all and i still have headache.

so I went to see the doc again on wednesday and she cut the voltaren off and add methycobal and synflex for the threatment obsevation. again, the pain is never gone.

however, i started to take xanax every night before bedtime since wednesday until now.

been thinking over and over about me in last 5 months. im killing myself. went to the hospital too often, take too much medicine, my lung works too hard.

........my boss never give a dam_n to me at all and just saying ive done an excellent job always and take care of yourself......

so, this is my decision, i will quit the job. im done with bangkok. too stress, fake and lie

plan to go to europe asap as i get the job there

ps. this is not only about my job but also my family problem. i have to confess that i might did the wrong decision to go abroad. but..thinking about when i was in usa and japan. i just feel like i live my life for myself, i was like..i belong to me not for my mom or anybody.

to share some of my private life here, is because i cant talk these thing to anybody cuz i am their hope. i cant complain or show them how weak i am.

i just wont someone to LISTEN and UNDERSTAND me.

hope you guy dont mind about me.

I guess we're listening Anna.

go easy on the medication. maybe you have Migraine or something, I had it in my late teens for a while. not had a headache since though except after one two many beers occasionally

As for the Job. I wouldn't suggest you Quit, that's upto you. I do know that if you do, something else will turn up, it always seems to do. Your 21 years Old, the worlds Your Lobster (sorry Oyster)

I suspect most of us have anxieties from time to time, I'm pretty anxious myself at the moment. I leave my family on tuesday to go working.

Take it easy and go easy on those Meds .

Anyway, if anyone has a cool idea about the access, please kindly let me know ka!

And also, I am doing a used book donation for the kids, if you have any willing to donate some, feel free to contact me.smile.png

Anny: You can not take a train to Chiang Rai, but can get a train to Chiang Mai, then bus over here to Chiang Rai. I have no idea of cost for VIP train ticket to CM.

Good Luck, hope you are well.
