      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

stress

Recommended Posts

last week my husband found himself in ICU for 2 days!! we thought it was a heart attack!! it was the worst week of my life!! turns out his heart is undamaged, and he was in due to stress!!

reasons:

-house renovations

-his uncle staying with us

-uncle failing miserably at building him a steel trailer for our quads.

outcome:

-house renos are now in the hands of a contractor

-uncle is moved out

-trailer is now in the hands of a licensed welder, and although it will cost way more than we thought, it will be done right ;-)

-quit smoking

-eating better

-exercising

hopefully he's on the right track now, and no repeats of this to come!!!

what do you do for stress in your life?

Sue,

First its great there was no damage to your husbands heart and second its great your husband has changed his lifestyle.

Stress relievers for me include working out each morning before work, eating correctly which will help relieve stress and of course, fishing and hunting. Taking some time off during the week and catching up on things that seem to get crammed into the weekend helps every once in a while as well.

Good luck

Wow! Glad to hear it wasn't a heart attack!

We have come to realize our limitations, and hire out the things we need to. Makes it a lot easier!

I am trying to change the way I handle stress as well. I would also like to hear other's suggestions.

I think many of us relieve our stress down in "silly town". The outdoors thread allows us to vent sometimes.

Now if the rest of those foolish people would read what we say, and not get so confused with what they want to believe instead of the real issue, we would really be calmed down. laugh

At least you found out what was causing the problem and took action to correct it.

Sue its great to hear that the hubby will be OK. I know how much stress can get to a person when there are too many jobs and not enough time. Get him out in the woods to scout for hunting spots or join you for a photo excursion and just plain forget about those "jobs" that have to be done. Like they say no one has ever wished that they had work more when they are laying on there death bed.

Holy Mackeral Sue!! Stress sucks and I don't deal well with it either. I usually just try to get enough sleep, eat right and talk with the people who love me. I'm glad he's ok but that was quite the wake up call! shockedeek

STRESS; the confusion that results, when one's mind overrules the body from chocking the S***, out of some A-hole who desperetly needs it.

Good to know he's doing better! I understand the stress thing too...it's been messing with my health as I have A LOT on my plate at the moment. Hopefully he keeps the changes up. Makes me realize I need to do something too.

UUUHHHHHGGGGG, Stress.....

I am on the second night of having to wear a Holter Monitor to watch a heart condition. Quite possibly brought on or agrivated by stress. Between work issues, finding a place to live, my daughter starting school smile , her figuring out that mommy and daddy will never be a "family" again, me going back to school eek, and everything else, the old stress bag is getting full. I think this thing (the monitor) causes about as much stress as it is supposed to be looking for(it itches like crazy). Add to that the dietary changes I have had to make over the last two weeks(stinking er doctors), ONE cup of half caff, no other caffiene, no candy, NO alcohol! man I need a beer.

I did get a "prescription" to do more hunting or fishing. More like a stern verbal lashing from an ER doc who lives with the same heart issue I "likely" have. I asked him to write it down so I could use it at work to get some needed Ely time in, he said no... frown "find a way to releave more stress"

It all gets better in the long run right? Thats what I'm going with anyways.

thanks everyone for your replies!! I see issues of stress is indeed a "life" thing,, it's how we deal with it that becomes the problem. in a perfect world it's not an issue, but unfortunately our world is less than perfect, but your right,, we do make it our problem(s) frown

Mike is doing much much better, but he does get all excited about the house renovations, s'pecially if they aren't goin as planned... he's out of town all week, which I think is a good thing (for him) he's on the phone with me daily, I miss him, but at least there he's only focusin on his job. As for his eating and exercising,,,,,,,,,,,, well that's out of my hands now, I send off a bunch of food for him,, with directions on what to eat and when to exercise,, lol think he'll heed?? prolly NOT. shocked ah well, that too is "life"

as for me? well our contractor was supposed to be here Monday, and never heard a word,, I didn't want to leave the house to go for a photo shoot in case he did come,, so I was uptight.. Tuesday rolls around, still no contractor, no call. he pops in after lunch to say he's been busy and took a few measurements and looked at what needed doing,, said he would be by Wednesday. well he must be a very very busy boy,, he never showed yesterday either!!! so I was getting all stressed about it, and dealing with an upset husband on the telephone,, when I said to Mike "he knows the job is to be done by the time the snow comes, he'll get it done (this contractor has a better than average reputation) we have to wait another 2 weeks for our entrance door, so perhaps it'll all work out in our favour"

no worries!!

as for the smoking,, I have had a few slips, but Mike has been smoke free!! woohoo!!

Sue

I have a pretty stressful job, and the past couple of months has been incredibly stressful dealing with lawyers, custody issues, and the result of my daughtor moving to tennessee, etc.

-Sometimes you need to just swallow hard and move on

-At times I need to learn when to say "I don't give a F"

-Sometimes it's best to just bend over and bring a bottle of lube,

-When i'm extremely stressed, heart pumping...chest hurting, i will go for a run, play bball, lift... something to take my mind off of the stress, and exuberate myself to be too tired to be stressed.

-I also enjoy countless hours of fishing and hunting!@!! NO STRESS IN THE BOAT!

..Deep breaths and find a happy place! laugh FInd something to laugh about.!
