DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER

I have treated clients with this disorder and it is an amazing experience to perceive facial changes, personality and speech changes, eye colour changes in an individual with this disorder.  I found this webmed article for you on this fascinating disorder.

Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder)

Listen

 

Dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder) is thought to be a complex psychological condition that is likely caused by many factors, including severe trauma during early childhood (usually extreme, repetitive physical, sexual, or emotional abuse).

What Is Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Most of us have experienced mild dissociation, which is like daydreaming or getting lost in the moment while working on a project. However, dissociative identity disorder is a severe form of dissociation, a mental process which produces a lack of connection in a person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, or sense of identity. Dissociative identity disorder is thought to stem from a combination of factors that may include trauma experienced by the person with the disorder. The dissociative aspect is thought to be a coping mechanism — the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience that’s too violent, traumatic, or painful to assimilate with his conscious self.

Is Dissociative Identity Disorder Real?

You may wonder if dissociative identity disorder is real. After all, understanding the development of multiple personalities is difficult, even for highly trained experts. The diagnosis itself remains controversial among mental health professionals, with some experts believing that it is really an “offshoot” phenomenon of another psychiatric problem, such as borderline personality disorder, or the product of profound difficulties in coping abilities or stresses related to how people form trusting emotional relationships with others.

Other types of dissociative disorders defined in the DSM-5, the main psychiatry manual used to classify mental illnesses, include dissociative amnesia (with “dissociative fugue” now being regarded as a subtype of dissociative amnesia rather than its own diagnosis), and depersonalization/derealization disorder.

 

What Are the Symptoms of Dissociative Identity Disorder?

Dissociative identity disorder is characterized by the presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person’s behavior. With dissociative identity disorder, there’s also an inability to recall key personal information that is too far-reaching to be explained as mere forgetfulness. With dissociative identity disorder, there are also highly distinct memory variations, which fluctuate with the person’s split personality.

The “alters” or different identities have their own age, sex, or race. Each has his or her own postures, gestures, and distinct way of talking. Sometimes the alters are imaginary people; sometimes they are animals. As each personality reveals itself and controls the individuals’ behavior and thoughts, it’s called “switching.” Switching can take seconds to minutes to days. When under hypnosis, the person’s different “alters” or identities may be very responsive to the therapist’s requests.

STRESS AND YOU

Welcome to my newsletter.  Enjoy the read.

Stress and You

So I wrote an amazing newsletter  just now and about ways to cope with stress.  It was really good, describing my inner feelings, with photos, website links and all.    Then I accidentally deleted it and my world went into stress overwhelm which is what the newsletter was all about.  Coping with stress.

My life has been very stressful lately with the passing of my mother, two weeks before we were due to visit her.  A recent overseas trip which was both amazing and created a huge lifestyle shift for me which wasn’t so amazing in some ways and doesn’t need to be explained here.  However, I realise that you just have to find ways to cope with stress because it occurs in life.

This leads me to contemplate.  How do you do that?

Love in the little things.

Recognise that overwhelm isn’t your best friend and allow your mind to look after you by exploring alternative ways to get around stressful situations and your lifestyle expectations.

Let other people go if they do not serve you.

Be yourself and be kind to yourself.

Recognise your immune system is affected by stress as mine has been with bronchial infections lately and know that you can only do so much before you really need to know it is ok to stop and look out for yourself!

You are not everone else’s solution in life.  You are your own creator.  So rely on the Creator both inside and above to assist you in times of need.  Allow people to support you and let Go and let God when you can.

Be able to understand that sometimes computers and devices, social media are friends and sometimes the trees are better friends.

Take time to know why and who you are.  Be at peace.

Use the tools you have and meditate when you are able.

WHAT DOES BURNOUT LOOK LIKE?

Burnout looks like this.


Lol

Really though, burnout looks like this…..


Burnout is when you just can’t go on.  thinking, being, knowing, continuing, sleeping, being awake, talking, answering questions, pretending.

If you are experiencing burnout, one of the hardest things to do is to step off the treadmill but it is the thing you need to force yourself to do the most.  The consequences of burnout are breakdown.  Emotional/physical/spiritual/energetic breakdown.

Some strategies to counter burnout are:

Remembering it isn’t going to be the end of the world if you change the status quo.

People will respond to you how you expect them to sub-consciously so take some time to meditate and be alone to evaluate what you really want in your environment.

Rest, even if it means laying down for twenty minutes or turning off the devices!

Do not answer the phone, the email or the door for a mandatory half hour period every day.

Be kind to yourself first.

Eat well and drink plenty of water.

Watch a funny movie and don’t pay yourself out for the downtime.  

Read a book, do a self-hypnosis, get a massage.

Remember the key to avoiding burnout is to recognise patterns that need changing and do one thing at a time to change them.  If you try to throw the baby and the bathwater out at the same time you have probably already burned out.

Take magnesium, zinc and B vitamins to help you help your nervous system and body to cope.

STOP for a bit!

I hope this helps you.  You are allowed to be yourself.  That is why you were put on this Earth in the first place.  It is all about self love and acceptance not work, worry and strain incorporating stress.

Please if you haven’t already, get this hypnosis track and relax!!!!!!  Please look after yourself.  You deserve it.  It isn’t only your car that needs servicing.

WHEN THE WIND IS BLOWING FROM THE INSIDE

Image may contain: one or more people and text
Photo courtesy of facebook……I laughed a lot.

When the wind is blowing from the inside it is called flatulence!  That is the polite term.
Gas builds up in the intestines and bowel and if your gas can’t go up and out as a burp it will travel past that half way mark and come down as flatulence.
How many times don’t we have issues around “breaking wind, farting, letting one go!”

Seriously so many funny antics and embarrassing moments happen around flatulence, which is a normal part of digestion.   When you have fibres which ferment or sugars hitting an inflamed area of the bowel,  dairy intolerance and many other healthy and unhealthy conditions, the production of extra gas in the digestive system will result.

Gas can come from how your body tackles the last baked bean consumption or tacos,  (those older ones of us might remember the movie “Blazing Saddles” from the 1970s dedicated to the topic in a comedic way.
Gas comes when inflamation is present and the sugars in food make it ferment like ginger beer does when you add sugar to it.  Large bubbles of wind swell and this can be painful, leading to cramps and extreme wind pains.

Farting is healthy actually.  The average healthy human breaks wind from the anus approximately 14 times a day!
Sometimes you can’t help it and it can be a literal pain in the ass of social occasions, especially as women tend to try to hide this need to pass wind and will hold it in till they have stomach pains.  Then they will find a secret place to allow it to pass, hoping not to be heard or smelt.   Oh dear!

Most men make a competition of it in social situations, cracking up laughing when someone does it and seeing if they can beat them.  Just like burping.  Oh dear polite company excluded of course.  I am not sure if I am speaking only of the Australian bbq scene lol but I am sure that is a worldwide trend.

In some countries it is considered polite to burp as a copliment for good food.   Flatulence less so.

In the Oknolwgloonkwa culture of Northeastern Chad, a polite male guest is expected to fart freely at dinner.
If one does not produce several healthy, frangrant farts at the table the host worries that you are not having a good enough time.

So the next time you are worried about having a build of wind, consider migration lol.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

Bring on the sounds of silence.  Beautiful restful nothingness.  Peaceful contemplation devoid of mind chatter.  A mental holiday.   The sound of zen in action.  The nothingness of spiritual existence which is the all and the everything combined with the nuances of silence and matter in chaos.

What a concept is silence!
No automatic alt text available.
We never really hear it unless we are in meditation.  Why?  Because in all places there are frequencies, noises, people, cars, electromagnetic frequency waves, tvs, neighbours, clatter and hum.

To be in silence is to be inside your inner knowing with a sense of completeness.  This involves a journey into the core of the being.  To really journey into yourself without hearing the outside world and its demands and din, you need to be prepared to disassociate completely.

Even as you do this you will find your mind trying to bring to back to “reality” as you see it.  Mastership of zen contemplation takes time and is a gift to your consciousness and your peace of mind.

Practice silence.  Even if there is noise about you can do this.  Practice dissassociation of all your senses.  Imagine yourself somewhere away from the current environment in a peaceful space of clouds and air.  Let your mind wander to explore the new clouds and air and as you breathe make this the only sound you hear.  Let your flow of energy expand around you so you create your own consciousness buffer zone, where the outside world doesn’t exist.

Just breathing and listening to the breathe can eventually take you to a place of dreams and dissassociation from the surroundings.

To hear the sounds of silence you have to go after your own peace of mind.  But not in the actively moving sense.  In the sense that you know you are nothing, silence, peace and prosperity, calm and serenity and as you know it nothing else intrudes nor matters.  This is mastership of a different kind.  It is mastership of the silence within.  Then you are closest to God, source and the inner core where all divinity prospers.  

If you would like to meditate to this silence try these meditation links to help you.

ZINC DEFICIENCY

Zinc deficiency can occur in soil, plants, and animals. In animals, including humans, it is defined either qualitatively as insufficient zinc to meet the needs of the body and thereby causing clinical manifestations, or quantitatively as a serum zinc level below the normal range; however, serum zinc is not a reliable biomarker for zinc status in humans, as a decrease in serum concentration is only detectable after long-term or severe depletion

Typical signs of zinc deficiency in a person are loss of appetite, poor sense of smell and taste, tendency towards depression, white marks on fingernails, pale skin, frequent infections, low fertility, stretch marks, prostate problems, stunted growth, mental problems, poor wound healing, a poor immune system, diarrhea, mental lethargy, poor appetite, rough skin, weight loss, ache and greasy skin.

 Zinc plays an essential role in numerous biochemical pathways. It affects many organ systems, including the skin, gastrointestinal tract, central nervous system, and immune, skeletal, and reproductive systems. A lack of zinc thus has numerous manifestations, the most common of which are an increased rates of diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria

To treat zinc deficiency, it is best to advise a person to increase foods that are high in zinc content within their diet. These foods are oysters, ginger root, lamb, pecan nuts, dry split peas, haddock, green peas, shrimps, turnips, Brazil nuts, egg yolks, whole wheat grain, rye, oats, peanuts and almonds. Pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed butter are excellent sources of this vital mineral.

If you have a metabolic disorder like Pyroluria for example, you have problems assimilating and converting the zinc from your food as easily, so supplementation with a zinc supplement is suggested as you do not retain sufficient levels for energy and good health.  

NB  if you choose a zinc supplement to replenish you zinc levels, please make sure you take it after meals as you can experience nausea on an empty stomach, which really defeats the purpose of wishing for better health and feeling vibrant!

To find out more about your own zinc status, see your natural health practitioner for a consultation. In my clinic I use a zinc tally test to ascertain your zinc status.  It is a simple taste test and gives instant results.

Till next week, eat, look and feel well.

MOBILE PHONES AND HEMORRHOIDS

“Well there is another interesting topic.  Did you know that you can get hemorrhoids from mobile phone usage?
Perhaps not many people really think about this but it is a real problem in todays social media world.

People sit on the toilet too long and take their mobile phones in with them and read.  Yes they do!
I have clients who confess and I know people who do it.  People these days just don’t go to the toilet to evacuate their bowels.  People go there for a break, a respite, a quiet minute.

In our hectic lives of emails and social media, people will even be addicted enough to take their mobile devices in with them and sit on the toilet awaiting nature’s processes whilst being completely devoid of time contrainsts.  Their mind is a frenzy of activity and their body just lets go.  Then it finishes letting go and their mind doesn’t even notice.

How many levels of candy crush does it take to get a hemorrhoid?  Why is this linked?

Sitting on the toilet in this position once you have competed your ablutions so to speak, will place pressure on the under-carriage.  The muscles aren’t made for half an hour of download time.  Leave your mp3 downloads to sitting at the desk or chair.  Your sphincter muscle will overstretch from the downward pressure that toilet posture will produce and the next thing you know there is a stretched area and whammo your veins are popping through and you have a hemorrhoid arrive on the next push episode.

Wow Katherine, you are being graphic today.  Well it is because life can be a pain in the arse at the best of times when life’s pressures build up without adding to the physiology of the cause and effect process.

My advice is have a laugh, live your life without your phone for at least this long.  Go the the toilet because you need to and go outside or to your workstation to check your emails the old fashioned way.  

Well actually I expect this is an age old problem of reading on the toilet.  It used to be newspapers or articles in a magazine.  I am sure we have all seen the movies and tv shows depicting this as a funny joke against “dear ol’ dad”. These days however I am hearing many women complaining of it also.  Leave the reading to the length of time it takes you to do your business and remember the outside world will still be there when you get out of the cubicle to embrace and enjoy.

Here is an article about hemorrhoids for the uninitiated”.

TURNING A BREACH BABY – NATURAL CHILDBIRTH

What a topic!  Phew I remember it well.  Yes my last child was a breach baby.  What this means is that the baby is facing the wrong direction to birth.  The head is not down, the feet are presenting down and the head is at the top under your diaphram.  What does this mean to the mother?  Well depending on the birth weight and health of the baby, breach births are possible, although not always pleasant.  There can be complications.

In my case my child weighed A LOT!.  He was long, wide and large.  The doctors predicted my child could grow to over 11 pounds in weight if I went full term.  So breach was predicted to be life-threatening.  Having had three healthy children normally, I didn’t fancy their next suggestions.  Either we turn the baby now (three weeks before delivery) and then all should be ok, or you are having a casearian delivery because his head is really large and the consequences of a breach birth will mean compression of the umbilical chord and likely brain damage to the baby.

Well faced with the lack of options, I went through the proceedure of turning the baby in utero.  I have provided you with a fantastic link below which shows a lady successfully going through this proceedure quite nicely.

For me the proceedure was slightly more painful because of my baby’s size (to give you an idea, I slept propped up on five pillows from five months pregnant because I couldn’t lie down.   I had double the amniotic fluid and they said I looked like I was having twins!  Oh joy.  They turned him beautifully, but being an individual he decided to turn himself back around in the middle of the next night.  Very much like having eaten a cow sideways and wondering why you are waking up looking wider than you went to bed, then feeling like your innerds have been compressed, elongated and then normalised the wrong way again. 

Consequently my baby was scheduled for cesaerian two weeks early.  Yes he is healthy, he weighted 9 pounds at birth and as he had been growing at a pound a week before this, with a huge head, I believed I had made the right choice for his health in going through the surgery.  Not my idea of fun though.  However that is another whole story I won’t proceed with.  Suffice to say I am more the Earth Goddess birthing mother type and prefer the natural way.  That to me was much easier.

I hope you enjoy this link.  It really is quite lovely to hear the dad encouraging the mum and see her coping really peacefully with the baby turning. Also great to see and experience a compassionate doctor.  The information attached to this link is also really helpful and informative.  This isn’t a squeamish video, but lovely so you can dare yourself to watch it.   http://www.metaspoon.com/breech-baby-press-ecv-ultrasound?cat=parenting&fb=4052M1mwr3565tB&utm_source=4052M1mwr3565tB

Remember that if you are pregnant and planning an natural birth, this is all helpful info and that is of course the most likely scenario for most people.  I had normal labours and births before this one, and the majority do.  Enjoy the miracle! 

If you would like some help in having a natural labour I have a marvellous self-hypnosis tool for you which you can obtain from me via online link provided here.  It is about natural childbirth and teaches you how to experience pain free labour.   All good things in this natural process and stress free contractions.  Sound good?

This peaceful and empowering natural childbirth hypnosis will show you how to work with the sensations of labour, turning on and off the sensations switch and giving you the control you need whilst being completely relaxed in an honouring of your enlightened self and beautiful child.  Use this tape repeatedly during pregnancy to empower your birthing experience.

This tape is an awesome tool to repeat before bed nightly in your preparation time for natural childbirth.  Theta tones underly this hypnosis to enable your subconscious to take on the messages effortlessly.

Enjoy your peaceful childbirth experience.http://katherinebrightaustralia.com/product/natural-childbirth-hypnosis/

RECOGNISE STROKE SYMPTOMS

I found this article on facebook actually and it seemed so concise and straightforward that I decided to publish it here.  It came from wisdomtoinpirethesoul.com.  

“I URGE YOU ALL TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LIFE BY KNOWING AND PASSING ON THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION.

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.

 During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

IDENTIFYING A STROKE

Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR.
Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist said that if everyone who gets this message shared it with 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.”

A NARCISSISTIC STATEMENT

Narcissism

A Narcissistic Statement

“Do you recognise a narcissistic statement in this?”   
(narcissistic being a term used to describe
– a form of being self absorbed, or thinking from the self only in perception to the rest of the world around them, affecting them.
– Needs control based upon actual lack of self esteem issues which make it important for them to identify themselves as dominant.)

“I forgive you for the things you have done to me but healing takes time.” 

Actual intention translation by the narcissist is:  
I am a victim,  I blame you,  and I will make you pay until I feel that you have suffered enough, and that will heal me.  

Often this sort of statement will be used when you are in fact laid bare on the floor, feeling trashed because you haven’t made the grade again to someone who insists upon lambasting you with their dissatisfactions, whether real or imagined.  You become a focus for them only so long as you are willing to take the brunt of the guilt and shame dished out.

Be aware of where in life you continue to try to make up for existing if you are faced with a narcissist.  Real forgiveness or acceptance of awareness just cannot work unless they are prepared to take responsibility for their part in your life,  and that isn’t always likely to happen.  

Consciousness is not one sided.  Compassion is multi-faceted.  Have compassion for others but also for yourself and let go to be free to flow into your future without harm, shame or guilt riding alongside with you.

Namaste.

Till next week, love and light

A SNAPSHOT OF LIFE IN THE MONTH OF MARCH

March has been a very busy month for me.  It is usually a busy life for me but I have been particularly busy this month.

We held a three day healing festival in Port Macquarie for my students,  I conducted three reiki classes and did the usual clinic, weekly radio hosting of my program on www.newsforthesoul.com called Connect To Creator, and wrote a lot of material for my new partnership business Scale It Up Now.

I thought about the juggle of the active mind.  I have a very active mind!  Sometimes it won’t be quiet at all and sometimes it is serene.  Yes I think if you could picture my mind you could picture a juggler with a series of balls, deciding which ones to allocate a topic or task you and then rotating them with skill.

I have a skillful mind.  I have an amazing soul that tirelessly works and invents for the greater good.  I have a human body which sometimes wonders what the heck I am doing?

Do you have that problem?  A mind full of tricks and inventions and a body with a finite energy source.  I look after myself and rest too.  Don’t get me wrong, I am no machine of work.  I am however actively engaged in life.  I sing in a barbershop quartet,  I am rehearsing in a musical for a broadway production, I am writing courses, material , hypnosis scripts,, books and music.  I even wrote a song this month and recorded it.

No I am not superhuman, stupidly driven or mad.  I am living the way I live.  I am guaging my surroundings, my life and my intentions, my soul purpose and finding ways to fulfil them.   Yes I do meditate and sit quietly.  Sometimes I vegetate in front of the TV.  I do all sorts of things to assist my peace.  I walk in nature and I swim in my pool.  I laugh a lot and I experiment with silly things that take my fancy.

A snapshot of the month of March has its own inclusions.   I bought new makeup called Yunique which I decided is marvellous.  It didn’t cause me excema on my eyelid.  Something eyeshadows can do.  Therefore I give it a plus.

My youngest son wrote new music on the piano. My other son showed me photos of his holiday with partner and son on facebook and I saw him loving fatherhood.  My middle son is building my new website and is often emailing me so we are getting lots of chats in.  My daughter is busy with six children so we don’t talk as often as could be perhaps, but I love seeing photos of the kids and the odd skype session.    Sometimes I pine for them and days when they were growing up that I saw more of them.  I did a bit of that in March.  Where did I get the time to combine all these things?  Sometimes in my dreams!

Life is full of dreams, abundances, joys and fortunate events. Life is especially full of these when you receive messages from friends, clients and family that say nice things about your efforts.

Abundance is life and where there is empowerment there is no fear.

I wish you abundance.

Namaste”

I DREAMED A DREAM

Dreams are amazing.  They demonstrate not only what our sub-conscious is thinking but they act as a filing and sorting system on the conscious mind also.  

There are different types of dreams.

There are the dreams of prophesy which can be fulfilling and scary at the same time.  These dreams are ones where you know something is about to happen and you are sure you are getting an advanced replay on something which hasn’t yet happened but is about to.

Some dreams are sorting of baggage.

These are the dreams where you replay in your head a million times a scenario.  Sometimes the scenario has different scenes but the players may recur.  Often this happens because the mind is trying to relegate its experiences into an order of priority of consciousness.  If we think we have dealth with a person well, we will find resolve and happiness occurs in our dreams to show our mind we are ok.  If we haven’t been able to resolve a persona or set of circumstances, we can find triggers will resurface a dream scenario as our mind tries to handle it when we are asleep.  This is the subconscious mind attempting to shuffle and show us our baggage.

Electrically we dream differently I have found.  Some people dream in colour and most in black and white.

The widespread belief exists that REM (Rapid Eye Movement) exists mainly to process memories of the preceding day’s events during dreams    Dr Maurice is a scientist who believes it is only so the cornea receives oxygen during sleep as the eyelids flutter.  

 Eyelids flutter the moment your brainwaves hit the Theta Brainwave, such as in performing energetic healing and when you are under hypnosis.  Also this fluttering of REM  happens when you dream and sleep.

Another scientist Dr Hobson descrives dream response thus……. To Hobson, dreams are reactions to random nervous system stimuli, which the brain “interprets” as bizarre images and other sensory hallucinations. “The activation-synthesis hypothesis,” he asserts, “assumes that dreams are as meaningful as they ca n be under the adverse working conditions of the brain in REM sleep. The reason that dream content often seems disoriented or bizarre is because the activated brain-mind does its best to attribute meaning to the internally generated signals of the brain.”

Sciencetech magazine posted this in a UK Daily Mail article …….”Pensioners tend to dream in black and white, while young people dream in colour. Research has shown that once we reach our 60s, just one person in five has bright-coloured, vivid dreams; in contrast, as many as four in five experience them under the age of 30.Jul 20, 2011″

I think if you are needing some time to dream, you are overworked and overwhelmed and i need of some you time.  For all of us dreaming shows us what we crave or what we have in some way present in our lives currently.

Recently I performed with the cast of Meander Down Broadway in Port Macquarie.  The song I sang in duet with Bethany Cook was “I Dreamed A Dream”  It is such a poignant reflection of dashed dreams and hopes from Les Miserables.

I am posting it here for you to reflect and enjoy.  My dream has always been to do God’s work which I do in my sleeping times.  I also dream of music, frequency and tones in healing and musical pieces.  Here is my dream of singing in action.
