Holden’s initial issue is that he is emotionally unstable. We learn that through the book he has many breakdowns and outbursts of emotion and feelings. Holden says, “He got leukemia and died when we were up in Maine, on July 18, 1946.” Holden says this with deep sadness and sympathy for the death of his brother. However, his day to day emotions are entirely different. His view of life is that everyone and everything in our society is a “phony.” This is apart of his unstableness because it shows that he is unable to hold back his mood swings.
I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the godam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it (Salinger 44).” He was inexperienced with handling grief and death at a young age; rather than rationalizing the situation, he decides to take out his grief and frustrations though destroying property and hurting himself in the process. Coincidentally, this marks Holden’s physical deterioration and his self-destructive tendencies used as a coping mechanism; his damaged hand shows readers he is weak not only physically but also psychologically, a repeating imagery throughout the novel. His inability to handle reality and relinquish the concept of innocence is also a recurring pattern in the novel. Throughout the novel, readers get to know Holden through apathy and grief, especially through

H2 blockers may be used as a first line therapy in patients with minor EER, as adjunct therapy, or as step down therapy to wean patients from PPIs. Proton Pump Inhibitors PPI’s act against the enzyme hydrogen-potassium adenosine triphospatase in the parietal cell, thereby blocking the final step of gastric acid production. These drugs are more effective than H2 blockers for the long term reduction of basal and stimulated levels of gastric acid production. The PPI’s include pantoprazole,omeprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole, and
Through the character of Larsen, the reader sees the exploitation of children who are considered weaker when there are no limitations to morals or a sense of ethics to their actions. With the children only being there for the benefit of others, Larsen is willing to lie to the parents about his intentions with the children and cuts off any contact or ties with society. He has no interest in helping the children, but only in helping himself to further his career and make himself known to the world. Greg reinforces this mentality of Larsen's when he states, "A mismatched bunch of post (most of us) pubescent misfits, with super high IQs and sub-zero social skills, locked away in this cozy coastal retreat...Because some thought we might prove useful" (Caswell, 1992, pg. 9).

Physical – Senescence, which is biological ageing, causes deterioration of bodily functions. These declines obviously differ from individual to individual but generally they include; Lower energy levels Less flexibility in the skin and emergence of wrinkles and brown spots Thinning and greying of hair Declining eye sight and hearing ability Height and weight loss Slower reflexes Weakening muscle strength Some aspects can’t be predicted but have a major effect on physical well-being like strength of immune system, nutritional intake and whether the person has a minor or serious illness or physical disability. Intellectual – The National Institute of Health explains how as you age your brain shrinks and decreases in weight.
Hypertension and some other cardio-vascular conditions also exhibit certain changes in retinal blood vessels. Growth of new vessels (also known as neo-vascularization), disappearance of vessel ( due to occlusion) , change in dimension are some of the structural changes associated with blood vessels. In cases with hypertension, the retinal arteries dilate by about 35%. Inspite of diabetic retinopathy, age and hypertension also causes changes in the structural geometry of retinal vessels. Diabetes may cause retinal abnormalities which is known as diabetic retinopathy, abnormalities in kidneys (diabetic nephropathy), nervous system (diabetic neuropathy) and is known to be one of the major risk for cardiovascular diseases.
