Overcoming my fears

Maybe I am a step closer to finish off with my fear of choosing even the smallest things. I struggled with this so called “phobia” for a long-long time, but now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I visited a therapist 5 times in the previous month and it really helped. I never thought that just by speaking about it would make such a huge step. Thank you all, who suggested me to give it a try. It was a little bit embarrassed in the beginning, but now I know, that I needed it.

I think I am on the right path because yesterday I could choose a new razor by myself, within half an hour. Of course, it could be much faster, but hey, for me, it is a big thing.

I bought it because my previous electric razor went crazy when I wanted to style my beard a week ago. It was a little bit terrifying because I just saw the smoke and I didn’t know what could cause it, then I found my razor, which I left on the shelf in my bathroom, on fire.

Fortunately, I could extinguish the fire within a minute, so it couldn’t cause a big problem.

But back to the main story…yesterday I sat in front of my computer, did a small research and found a site which claimed to give the best electric razor shaver reviews on the market: Off With My Hair I read through the articles within 20 minutes, and all of them was really helpful. At the end of this research, I marked 3 different razors which could be good for me and within 10 minutes I ordered one of them.

So maybe, one day I’ll be more confident, and I can choose without a hesitation. I feel, that I’ll be able to do this!

Thank you guys again for the suggestion!


Fear of choosing a gas range

Dear Readers,

Every damn time I have to make a big decision I’m shocked. I still don’t know why, but I always freeze when there is a problem that requires my decision. For example, when I last bought shoes I stood there for an hour without any sign of life. They even wanted to call for a doctor.

Before that I wanted to buy a new PC for myself, and there was no problem until I browsed through the supply, but when I had to choose the most suitable, I froze. I had to invite a friend of my, to make the decision instead of me.

I don’t know why this happens, because previously I had no problem with decision making. I was quite brave and strong-minded person. But in the past 2 years… something happened.


I made up my mind to overcome this difficulty within a year, step-by-step.

First of all, I asked a friend to buy me 2 other pairs of shoes. This way every morning I have choose which one to use that day.

Secondly, I always keep several different kind of wine at home, so when I go to a party I have to decide which to bring to the host.

I know these are nothings, but somehow I had to start. But now, I’m in a bigger project, that requires a little bit more focus. I have to buy a new gas range. I never owned one before and this is the last piece I still miss from my flat. I already did some research in this topic and found some awesome gas range reviews which helped to choose two identically perfect ovens. You can check them by clicking on the link.

Now, I have to decide which one to buy. They are from different brands: LG and Samsung. Both are pretty cost-efficient and well designed, but neither of these attributes helps me to overcome my “curse”.

I was sure, that if I write it in this entry, I’ll be able to make a decision and order one of these gas ranges. And maybe it will really help after posting it.

Wish me luck!

Residents wanting to reduce their tax obligation expenses may want to reconsider their hot water heater. A recently authorized law permits people to take as long as a $300 tax obligation credit rating if they set up a tankless hot water heater in their house.

The new tax obligation credit history is implied to encourage UNITED STATE citizens to better handle their power intake with the use of much more efficient innovation. Changing to such technology carries the added advantage of reducing utility expenses overall after the tax obligation credit history has ended.

If you want to check which are the best tankless water heaters on the market today, you may want to click on the link.

When it comes to hot water heater, that means making use of models that offer a continual supply of warm water while decreasing energy use.

For instance, Bradford White EverHot tankless hot water heater utilize reliable modern technology to provide hot water instantly. The water heaters make use of a collection of modulating gas burners that only operate when there’s a need for hot water. The Energy Element (EF) of the heating units ranges from 0.82 to 0.87-comfortably over the brand-new energy bill’s minimal tax obligation credit-qualifying need of 0.80.

” Tankless water-heating technology may not be the best option in all water-heating applications,” claimed Bruce Carnevale, vice head of state of sales at Bradford White Corporation. “Nonetheless, current enhancements in tankless water heating designs have made them a most important choice to the energy-conscious customer. One of the obstacles to consumer acceptance of tankless water heaters has actually been their high preliminary expense, relative to traditional tank-type hot water heater. However the $300 tax obligation credit rating will help to lower the expense differential.”

Extra tax obligation incentives exist for homebuilders that use the new technologies as well as for industrial applications, whether the structure is new or under improvement. The tax obligation credit rating will certainly run through Dec. 31, 2007.
