Uhhh. What? The ebola virus is only contagious once someone starts showing symptoms and cannot be spread through the air, just bodily contact. So, as long as people are responsible and go to the hospital as soon as they have symptoms and don't touch anyone once they show symptoms then they are actually being very… » 9/30/14 11:20pm Tuesday 11:20pm

This sounds like a plot by Dwight on The Office. In fact I'm pretty sure he was going to fill the Michael Scott Paper Company's office with bees. Have you recently started your own social work company and offended a crazy coworker? » 9/30/14 1:25pm Tuesday 1:25pm

For what it's worth, I just went through the process of getting diagnosed with and treated for ADHD in my junior/senior year of undergrad, so I'm in a pretty similar position to you. My first year and a half at college I was definitely just lazy. The next semester I began trying and realized that I was having REAL… » 9/23/14 12:41am 9/23/14 12:41am

I get the urge behind these, but I also think it's important that kids have privacy in a controlled or moderated way. Like, my mom didn't necessarily have my password all the time, but if she wanted it if she was concerned I absolutely HAD to give it to her.

I think at this in the evolution of our knowledge on parenting and child psychology we are at a very tricky moment regarding spanking. Many of the current generation of parents' parents used spanking "effectively" and non-abusively, in the same manner as a time out. And I can understand why they would have a real… » 9/16/14 10:47am 9/16/14 10:47am

Why do you think a degree in family law or civil rights would be more beneficial than an MSW? I can tell you that an MSW will allow you to work directly in those fields and do direct practice, while even if you get a law degree there is absolutely NO guarantee that you will find a job in your desired field, and you… » 9/09/14 11:08am 9/09/14 11:08am

oh man I'm the same way. About once a week I get convinced that there's something terribly wrong with me because I had a cramp or a weird poop or my neck hurts and even though my terror is real, I just don't go to the doctor. » 9/08/14 11:59pm 9/08/14 11:59pm

Nope, never. I love my partner, no matter what happens to his body, and I wouldn't ever want him to think otherwise. If you know for a fact that they would feel bad about themselves if they gained significant weight, then I would try to make small lifestyle changes like seeking out more physical activity or eating… » 9/07/14 8:54pm 9/07/14 8:54pm
