Re: If ACA is repealed what will happen to millions of Ameri

Here is an example of the heartbreaking truth of our current healthcare system. I work in organ transplant. I can think of two patients of the top of my head who cannot afford to get their liver transplants because they have private (commercial) insurance. One patient is on his wife's plan (through ...

Re: If ACA is repealed what will happen to millions of Ameri

Since this is a health care related thread I have a question. Does insurance cover hospital births? Is it really $25,000 and would someone without insurance be expected to pay that out of pocket? What if you end up at a different hospital than planned? We were having a debate about this at work tod...

Re: "Between a Monster and a Horrible Dragon"

I could never work with children. It is too heartbreaking. Social workers are overworked and underpaid. It can be a thankless job.

Re: Empathy vs Compassion...good or bad or somewhere in betw

That's interesting. I am a big Brene Brown fan. I can't remember if we are allowed to link videos but if you google "Brené Brown on Empathy" it will bring you to a small clip that I think explains empathy perfectly. ETA: Empathy is a huge term in my field. I disagree with the definition th...

Re: It's already starting.... Abortion Ban

Wow. We heard my daughter's heartbeat at my first OB appointment (6.5 weeks). I believe in reproductive rights. Outlawing abortions will never stop women from getting them. It will only create higher risk.

Re: Rosie O'Donnell should be ashamed

Other celebs/public figures have also attacked minor children and the press have reported it. In 1992, Rush Limbaugh referred to Chelsea Clinton as the White House dog, and she was only 12.

Re: Rosie O'Donnell should be ashamed

I agree all children should be off limits but that is not the reality of our media or culture. I remember people were horrible when Chelsea Clinton was going through an awkward stage. Running for president puts your family in the lime light. I just wish Trump would address it. It actually would be a...

Re: Seriously? In some states rapists have parental rights?

I don't think anyone minimized the strength someone might gain from therapy or sharing here. I did not read that into Shondra's post. Hopefully she will come back but I would not blame her if she didn't. Most communication is nonverbal which can make written communication tricky to interpret. I can...

It never is either/or Gypsy. We deal with it in the best way we can. And no particular way is wrong - its what's right for you personally. Hope you are feeling better today. Exactly.

Re: Anxiety? Anyone have anything that works for them?

What I'm reading here about Xanax in specific is wrong, in terms of possibility of addiction (people confuse addiction with tolerance) and how it should be taken (interval and dose). What I'm reading here about benzodiazepines in general is also wrong. Consult with a pharmaco-psychiatrist to get fa...
