If Constant Worry Makes Life Difficult, It Could Be An Anxiety Disorder
We all feel anxious when taking a final exam or waiting on potentially bad news. Our body automatically responds when we feel scared or threatened, preparing us to fight or to run from danger.

"When I am hospitalized, it can be a scary. Boone does everything it can to make things better for me. I’m Catholic, and I appreciate having a priest come to my bed and praying with me during my stay and even bring me communion,” says Cindy. “I also love how the volunteers bring me cards from my family and friends during my stay. I hold them close to me while I sleep and they make me feel so much better. I even get massages and manicures right in my hospital bed! There is nothing like human touch to make you feel better when you are ill. This is a very special place.”

Composer Shares Joy with Patients
Grayson Neate Kabler was 60 years old when she discovered her greatest passion. The third-generation Columbia business owner spent years working in her family’s store, Neates, at Ninth and Broadway. She was also an equestrian, travel agent and, most importantly, a loving caregiver for her husband, Kary Kabler. Kary lived with multiple sclerosis for more than 40 years and required around-the-clock care. It was during this time that Grayson began to look for something she could do in their home ... something creative.
Flashback

Last May, Teresa Wren’s life nearly ended in three brief flashes.

First, she remembers waking up in the middle of the night. She felt hot. So she stood up, turned down the air conditioner in her Columbia home and went back to bed.

In the next scene, it was morning. Her husband, Charles, was standing at the bedroom door. “Are you going to get up?” he asked. Teresa didn’t respond.
