Pistorius has said he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp by mistake last year, fearing that there was an intruder in his home when he fired through a closed toilet door in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013. The prosecution says he killed her intentionally after an argument. Psychiatrist Dr. Merryll Vorster said events during Pistorius’ life, including the amputation of his lower legs as a baby and his late mother’s habit of sleeping with a gun under her pillow, contributed to his “increasing stress.” “Overall, Mr. Pistorius appears to be a mistrustful and guarded person,” Vorster testified. She said the Olympic athlete displayed “escalating levels of anxiety” through his life when she interviewed him this month. Vorster said she also spoke to members of Pistorius’ family, some of his friends and his agent.

You may have extra stress at work or in your family. Although the crisis eventually goes away and the stress passes, an unexplained feeling of anxiety may last for months or years. Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder include: restlessness; irritability; poor concentration; muscle tension; sleep problems. A wide range of anxiety-related physical symptoms may seem like symptoms of heart disease, respiratory illness, digestive diseases and other medical illnesses. I recommend speaking with your primary care doctor. He or she can evaluate whether there is any medical illness contributing to how poorly you feel. If all that checks out, get a referral to a mental health professional who can discuss your treatment options. There are many very effective treatments such as medicine and psychotherapy for both panic and generalized anxiety.

I hope I can get that done soon. As the Mirror reported on Wednesday, the online market place was attacked by cyber crooks in late February and early March, but eBay said it only became aware of the breach earlier in May. It said mountains of data had to be sifted before it could let its 223 million registered users know. User names, encrypted passwords, email addresses, dates of birth, addresses and phone numbers were all illegally accessed but the company moved to reassure customers no financial information was compromised. eBay also told customers to change log-in details on other websites where they use the same password. British security expert Graham Cluley described eBays handling of the problem as slipshod. Obviously theyve got a lot of people to tell. But I think their whole handling of this has been quite sloppy. A spokesman for eBay said: “Our first priority is and always has been to protect our users’ information and ensure we correctly deal with the technical challenges such a situation brings, and that is why as a first step we have requested all users change their passwords.
