We also bought a television and a VCR for the church where we meet generic 400 mg aciclovir, with the understanding that we can use them at our meetings discount aciclovir 400 mg free shipping. Our support group has given us the opportunity to learn a great deal about Parkinson’s disease and what we can do for our- selves in treating it. Our speakers have included doctors, psychol- ogists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, a hearing specialist, and a nutritionist, all speaking on various aspects of the management of Parkinson’s disease. A speaker from Sandoz (a pharmaceutical company) talked to us and answered our questions about Parlodel (bromocriptine), one of its products. A representa- tive from the Eastern Agency on Aging informed us about com- munity services (such as adult day care) that are available to local senior citizens. A program we later held was a presentation of the care of the patient’s teeth, gums, and mouth, to address the diffi- culty that people with Parkinson’s have (because of dry mouth) in maintaining good oral hygiene. The speakers say that they learn a great deal from us during the discussion period when we contribute our ideas and voice our concerns. The videotapes we rent from Parkinson’s organizations have been instructive to our group. They have featured exercise pro- grams for people with Parkinson’s, roundtable discussions on Par- kinson’s, and doctors lecturing on Parkinson’s. What we learn from one another is as valuable as what we learn from speakers and tapes. What I value most of all is hearing others express the same things I have experienced but have not been able to communicate to people who don’t have Parkinson’s. No one else understands us as well as other people with Parkinson’s, not even our spouses or closest family members. Of course, the spouses and other caregivers feel the same way about sharing their feelings and insights. At the support group, even in the midst of our frustrations, we find joy and laughter, hope and determination. In addition to our regular meetings, our members look for- ward to two special occasions together: the annual picnic in July and the restaurant outing during the Christmas season. It is rewarding because of the opportunities it gives me to help others in the group and to find new topics for the group to share.

Therefore goals in means/ends reasoning discount aciclovir 400mg with visa, particularly the goal of health order aciclovir 200mg on line, are often schematized in terms of balance. An interesting aspect of balance schemas is that they relate both to cognition and feeling. But the optimal array and succession of emotions lends itself aptly to be mapped by balance imagery. Others are kinesthetic, as with balanced weights in two hands and equilibrium on a tightrope. Certain metaphorical mixtures of "ingredients" like the emotional "ingredients" of temperament, the virtuous "ingredients" of character, and the balanced cyclical alternations of moods, energies, interests, appetites and passions do not lend themselves well to visual representation. Nevertheless, they are cognized in terms of other perceptual schemata like equilibrium or equable climate. Waking and sleeping, hunger and satiety, night and day, seasons and the lives of the generations are omnipresent in experience. Cycle schemata, understood in terms of these primary, basic experiences are found everywhere, especially in physiology, and are fundamental, as noted above, to some notions of health. Wants and needs underlying values are cyclical, meaning that at least some important current valuations fluctuate, somewhat predictably. Metaphors Metaphor is the projection of a conceptual structure from a source domain, relatively literally understood, onto a target domain which is then partly understood in terms familiar from the source domain. Basic categories and their central prototypes as well as image schemas for organizing our primary and central existential situation and affects are pyramided into higher level, more abstract concepts and metaphors. For example, the position image schemas Front/Back and Ahead/Behind were outlined earlier. Numerous metaphors facilitating our understanding in varied realms of experience such as time, attitude and success or failure map them onto the position schemas of Front/Back and Ahead/Behind. Each of these examples uses the literal and concrete cognitive structure of position to enable comprehension of something else. The word comprehension itself illustrates the historic pervasiveness of cognitive metaphor, cognizing understanding in terms of getting a grip. The informal reasoning used for construing and solving means/ends problems is based on several alternative metaphorical understandings of causation. The metaphorical comprehension of event structure, however, precedes the attribution and structuring of causation. Lakoff and Johnson include "events, causes, changes, states, actions and purposes" in the group of event structure concepts.
