Since it turns out that it has a branching structure, it implies that it has a fractal dimension. Samuel Arbesman of Wired’s Social Dimension used the ZIPScribbles images created by Robert Kosara to calculate the fractal dimension of the US ZIP code system. As an analogy, let’s think about the human circulatory system, which fills a three-dimensional space using tubes that are essentially two-dimensional. Since it doesn’t really obey the rules that generate regular shapes, it must have a fractal dimension. In case of the ZIP code system, the codes themselves fill up a space but are built using simple ...

An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service.

Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

*  The ASMR Experiment: ASMR and social grooming
... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association. On average, obese adults had about 3.22 hospital stays in a 20-year period compared with 2.47 stays for the normal-w...

There is very little evidence for glass making from the raw materials in Roman Britain and even less evidence in Anglo-Saxon Britain. The chemical composition of Anglo-Saxon glass vessels is very similar to late Roman glass, which has high amounts of iron, manganese and titanium. Indirect evidence for glass bead manufacture in early Anglo-Saxon England. Although to date there is a lack of direct evidence for bead manufacture in early Anglo-Saxon England, there is evidence for it in early Christian Ireland, northern Britain and the post-Roman west.

*  Anglo-Saxon royal genealogies
... 300-305 Sisam speculated that the additional names arose through the insertion of a pair of Saxon heroes, Freawine and Wig, into the existing pedigree, creating a second alliterative pair after 'Brand'/'Bældæg', 'Giwis'/'Wig', where the stress of "Giwis" is on the second sylable and inviting further alliteration, the addition of 'Esla' to complete an 'Elesa'/'Esla' pair, and of 'Friðgar' to make a 'Freawine'/'Friðgar' alliteration. Having concluded that the shorter form of the royal genealogy was the original, Sisam compared the names found in different versions of the Wessex and Northumbrian royal pedigrees, revealing a similarity between the Bernician pedigree found in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and those given for Cerdic: rather than diverging several generations earlier they are seen to correspond until the generation immediately before Cerdic, with the exception of one substitution. Sisam concluded that at one time the Wessex royal pedigree went no earlier than Cerdic and that it was subsequently ela...

*  Megillas Esther part IV - The Search for a New Queen - Torah.org
They told him that a search should be put out for beautiful young women. Once in Shushan, the women should be given cosmetics and time to prepare themselves, and the one that the king likes most shall be the new queen. They would have suggested finding a women who overall was fit to be a queen - although beauty would have certainly been a factor. The Jews were despised by the nations of the world, and Achashverosh had no love for the Jews as we will see, he agreed to Haman's plan to annihilate the Jews. If one of the prerequisites for a new queen was a royal or distinguished pedigree, Esther would never have been chosen by Achashverosh, and there would not have been anyone in the palace to save the Jews in their time of need. Esther was also very beautiful, and because of that, Esther was afraid that she would be taken to the king's palace and forced to enter the "contest." Esther hid from the king's commissioners until she heard that anyone who knew of a beautiful young woman and did not "turn her in" would ...

'Eusociality' Greek 'eu': "good/real" + "social", the highest level of organization of animal sociality, is defined by the following characteristics: cooperative brood care including brood care of offspring from other individuals, overlapping generations within a colony of adults, and a division of labor into reproductive and non-reproductive groups. The division of labor creates specialized behavioral groups within an animal society which are sometimes called castes.

acks from temporary queues. acks from temporary queues Alexandru Scvor ov alexandru at rabbitmq.com. Fri Sep 23 10:58:58 BST 2011. Previous message: acks from temporary queues Next message: acks from temporary queues Messages sorted by:. Hi Jonathan, I apologize if this is an ill-informed question: In a nutshell, the thing I am trying to accomplish is blocking a producer until it has received acks or even nacks from all consumers on temporary queues bound to a given fanout exchange for a single message. From the docs, my sense is that using confirms and waitForConfirms would be preferable to full on transactions, Confirms are usually the way to go. With confirms enabled, calling waitForConfirms would block the producer until all published messages on that channel are acknowledged *by the broker*. The broker, in turn, will only acknowledge the message if 1 it has been persisted to disk; *or* if 2 it has been delivered to a consumer on each of the queues it had reached. You can't really specify that you only wa...

Did the Anglo-Saxons only change the local proto-Welsh place-names, and left unchanged the Roman place-names. Badonici montis = Bath. If Sule is the same as soul maybe Sela in the local dialect, then this could be the proof that Bath was proto-English before the Romans conquered Britain. Why Gildas used the name Bath.

*  Creoda of Mercia
2 6th century may have been the first king of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, ruling toward the end of the 6th century. Although he is mentioned in a pedigree found in the ' Anglo-Saxon Chronicle ', Creoda is not given the title of king. His existence is disputed by some scholars. Barbara Yorke wrote: "Although it is possible that some kind of regnal list could be the source of the information though the Worcester lists begin with Penda, these entries could be nothing more than intelligent guesswork based on names derived from Bede and the genealogy of Æthelred, while the dates seem to be influenced by an entry in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the death of a West Saxon Creoda...The surviving sources allow us to say with confidence little more than that the kingdom of Mercia was in existence by the end of the sixth century.". 3 Yorke's sentiment was shared by Professor of Medieval History Nicholas Brooks, who wrote: "Despite Professor Davies's tentative advocacy of the historicity of this material, it canno...

The first queue with delay 800 will be cleared by clearQueue. The new queue with delay 8000 will be executed with the delay value 800 of the first queue and not with 8000. I think this bug can cause a lot of confusion and should be fixed. If the second queue wasn't there, delay would be still executed, but result in no operation, because the queue of the element would be empty. But the second delay-queue now again fills the queue of the element. So the first delay, not properly killed, will execute the next queue element of the second queue by execute jQuery.dequeue ...

Speculative Parallelism. If it is nonlocal, the dependence stack is sent to the remote processor and the current processor looks for other stacks in its message queues. Thus, any parallelism in the system is due to multiple dependence chains and correspondingly, dependence stacks. These factors affect the number of possible outstanding remote requests for a processor's local suspensions, thus controlling the backlog of multiple outstanding dependence stacks. If this process should probe a remote suspension, it will be blocked on the dependence stack and a scheduling request will be sent to the remote processor. The first problem, that conservative processes take priority over speculative processes, is easily satisfied by having each processor maintain a separate, lower priority queue for speculative processes. If a speculative process probes or schedules any other suspensions they are also scheduled to the appropriate processor's speculative queue. The stack works in exactly the same way as the conservative s...

How can I clear the CalDav queue. How can I clear the CalDav queue. Printable View. 11-09-2009, 04:07 AM tbruce How can I clear the CalDav queue. Folks: Some time back, I managed to do something that resulted in iCal throwing CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation errors every time it starts the problem, I think, was either rights confusion or a lack of support for writing to shared Zimbra calendars under some circumstances, but that's not what I'm trying to solve. The laptop on which the original sin was committed continues to throw a slew of these errors every time I start iCal -- iCal on other machines I use is fine, so it's not a Zimbra problem. Nothing, including changing the shared accounts and reinstalling iCal, has stopped this. I am guessing that the iCal queue persists on the machine in file form somewhere and persists regardless of changes in the accounts or reinstallation of iCal. Anybody got any idea where. It's a minor irritation, but I have to go through it once or twice a day. The caldav debugger...

Positive social relationships in childhood and adolescence are key to adult well-being, according to Associate Professor Craig Olsson from Deakin University and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Australia, and his colleagues. In contrast, academic achievement appears to have little effect on adult well-being. The exploratory work, looking at the child and adolescent origins of well-being in adulthood, is published online in Springer’s Journal of Happiness Studies. We know very little about how aspects of childhood and adolescent development, such as academic and social-emotional function, affect adult well-being – defined here as a combination of a sense of coherence, positive coping strategies, social engagement and self-perceived strengths. Olsson and team analysed data for 804 people followed up for 32 years, who participated in the Dunedin Multidisciplin...

The exploratory work, looking at the child and adolescent origins of well-being in adulthood, is published online in Springer’s Journal of Happiness Studies. We know very little about how aspects of childhood and adolescent development, such as academic and social-emotional function, affect adult well-being – defined here as a combination of a sense of coherence, positive coping strategies, social engagement and self-perceived strengths. Olsson and team analysed data for 804 people followed up for 32 years, who participated in the Dunedin Multidisciplin...

(1/245) Recurrence risk of congenital anomalies--the impact of paternal, social, and environmental factors: a population-based study in Denmark.

The authors investigated the recurrence risk of congenital anomalies as a function of changes in genetic and environmental factors in single births following the birth of a child with an anomaly. The study is a population-based historical follow-up using the Danish Medical Birth registry, hospital discharge diagnoses, and Statistic Denmark's Fertility Database. The investigators identified 8,671 women who gave birth to a child with a diagnosed malformation between 1980 and 1992 and had a subsequent birth. Following the birth of an affected infant, 474 (5.5%) women gave birth to another child with a malformation, 155 of which (1.8%) were similar to the malformation of the older sib or half sib. When the father changed between the two births, the risk of a similar anomaly was significantly reduced (odds ratio (OR) = 0.26, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.11, 0.65). Higher social status at enrollment was associated with a lower recurrence risk (OR = 0.67, 95% CI 0.45, 0.99, for the middle status group and OR = 0.49, 95% CI 0.30, 0.81, for the highest status group), independently of partner change. A rise in social status between the two births was marginally associated with a decline in the recurrence risk. No variation in the recurrence risk associated with change of municipality or occupation was seen.  (+info)

(2/245) Use of trainer animals to improve performance and health of newly arrived feedlot calves.

Four trials were conducted to determine the efficacy of using trainer animals to improve the health and performance of newly arrived feedlot calves. For all trials, trainer animals were given 3 wk to adapt to the feedlot before arrival of the feeder calves and initiation of the trials. Trainer animals were present with newly received feedlot calves for 14 d after arrival and then were removed from the pens for the remaining 14 d of the experiments. In Trial 1, trainer animals were six crossbred beef steers and six mature cull beef cows. Newly received calves were allotted to 18 pens with 10 calves/pen. Six pens contained a trainer steer and six pens contained a trainer cow. Similar procedures were used for the subsequent three trials, except 12 trainer cows and 24 pens were used, and in Trial 4 half of the calves were allotted to pasture paddocks for 14 d before placement in their feedlot pens. During wk 1 of Trial 1, calves with trainer cows and steers gained weight more rapidly (P < .10) than those without a trainer animal (1.12 vs .67 kg/d, respectively). During wk 2, this trend was reversed and overall gains did not differ (P > .20) among treatment groups. Morbidity was 16.7 for control calves, 28.3% for calves with trainer steers, and 8.3% for calves with trainer cows. Four of six trainer steers required antibiotic treatment for respiratory disease. On d 1, a greater (P < .05) percentage of calves in the trainer cow group (81.7%) were observed eating during the first 30 min after feeding compared with either the steer trainer group (60%) or the control group containing no trainer animal (48.3%). This trend continued on d 2 but was not evident on d 3 or 7. In Trial 2, overall gains were 10% greater (P < .06) and final BW was higher (P < .01) for calves with trainer cows than for those without trainers. Trainer cows resulted in a substantial reduction (P < .01) in calf morbidity compared with calves housed alone. In Trial 3, trainer cows did not improve performance or health of newly received calves. More (P < .07) calves with trainers than without were eating 5 min after feeding on d 1, 2, 4, and 8. In Trial 4, the presence of trainer cows the first 2 wk did not affect (P > .27) gains. However, calves placed on pasture after arrival had lower (P < .03) gains during wk 1 than those housed in the feedlot. Calves placed in pasture paddocks upon arrival had more than twice (P < .01) the incidence of morbidity of those placed directly in the feedlot. In these trials, trainer cows had a significant effect on eating behavior of newly received calves, but health and performance benefits were variable.  (+info)

(3/245) Complex social structure, alliance stability and mating access in a bottlenose dolphin 'super-alliance'.

Large brain size in mammals has been related to the number and complexity of social relationships, particularly social alliances within groups. The largest within-group male alliance known outside of humans is found in a social network (> 400) of Indian Ocean bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in Shark Bay Western Australia. Members of this dolphin 'super-alliance' cooperate against other alliances over access to females. Males within the super-alliance form temporary trios and occasionally pairs in order to consort with individual females. The frequent switching of alliance partners suggests that social relationships among males within the super-alliance might be relatively simple and based on an equivalence rule', thereby allowing dolphins to form large alliances without taxing their 'social intelligence'. The equivalence model predicts that the 14 males in the super-alliance should not exhibit differences in alliance stability or partner preferences. However, data from 100 consortships do not support the equivalence hypothesis. The 14 males exhibited striking differences in alliance stability and partner preferences suggesting that the super-alliance has a complex internal structure. Further, within the super-alliance, alliance stability correlates with consortship rate, suggesting that differentiated relationships within the super-alliance are based on competition for access to females.  (+info)

(4/245) Evolution of cooperation through indirect reciprocity.

How can cooperation through indirect reciprocity evolve and what would it be like? This problem has previously been studied by simulating evolution in a small group of interacting individuals, assuming no gene flow between groups. In these simulations, certain 'image scoring' strategies were found to be the most successful. However, analytical arguments show that it would not be in an individual's interest to use these strategies. Starting with this puzzle, we investigate indirect reciprocity in simulations based on an island model. This has an advantage in that the role of genetic drift can be examined. Our results show that the image scoring strategies depend on very strong drift or a very small cost of giving help. As soon as these factors are absent, selection eliminates image scoring. We also consider other possibilities for the evolution of indirect reciprocity. In particular, we find that the strategy of aiming for 'good standing' has superior properties. It can be an evolutionarily stable strategy and, even if not, it usually beats image scoring. Furthermore, by introducing quality variation among individuals into the model, we show that the standing strategy can be quality revealing, adding a new dimension to indirect reciprocity. Finally, we discuss general problems with currently popular modelling styles.  (+info)

(5/245) Theoretical and perceived balance of power inside Spanish public hospitals.

BACKGROUND: The hierarchical pyramid inside Spanish public hospitals was radically changed by the Health Reform Law promulgated in 1986. According to it, the manpower of the hospitals was divided into three divisions (Medical, Nursing, General Services/Administration), which from then on occupied the same level, only subject to the general manager. Ten years after the implementation of the law, the present study was designed in order to investigate if the legal changes had indeed produced a real change in the balance of power inside the hospitals, as perceived by the different workers within them. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A questionnaire was administered to 1,027 workers from four different public hospitals (two university-based and two district hospitals). The participants belonged to all divisions, and to all three operative levels (staff, supervisory and managerial) within them. The questionnaire inquired about the perceived power inside each division and hierarchical level, as well as about that of the other divisions and hierarchical levels. RESULTS: Every division attributed the least power to itself. The Nursing and the Administrative division attributed the highest power to the physicians, and these attributed the highest power to the General Services/Administrative division. All hierarchical levels (including the formal top of the pyramid) attributed significantly more power to the other than to them. CONCLUSIONS: More than ten years after the implementation of the new law, the majority of workers still perceive that the real power within the hospitals is held by the physicians (whereas these feel that it has shifted to the administrators). No division or hierarchical level believes it holds any significant degree of power, and this carries with it the danger of also not accepting any responsibility.  (+info)

(6/245) The organisational and human resource challenges facing primary care trusts: protocol of a multiple case study.

BACKGROUND: The study is designed to assess the organisational and human resource challenges faced by Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). Its objectives are to: specify the organisational and human resources challenges faced by PCTs in fulfilling the roles envisaged in government and local policy; examine how PCTs are addressing these challenges, in particular, to describe the organisational forms they have adopted, and the OD/HR strategies and initiatives they have planned or in place; assess how effective these structures, strategies and initiatives have been in enabling the PCTs to meet the organisational and human resources challenges they face; identify the factors, both internal to the PCT and in the wider health community, which have contributed to the success or failure of different structures, strategies and initiatives. METHODS: The study will be undertaken in three stages. In Stage 1 the key literature on public sector and NHS organisational development and human resources management will be reviewed, and discussions will be held with key researchers and policy makers working in this area. Stage 2 will focus on detailed case studies in six PCTs designed to examine the organisational and human resources challenges they face. Data will be collected using semi-structured interviews, group discussion, site visits, observation of key meetings and examination of local documentation. The findings from the case study PCTs will be cross checked with a Reference Group of up to 20 other PCG/Ts, and key officers working in organisational development or primary care at local, regional and national level. In Stage 3 analysis of findings from the preparatory work, the case studies and the feedback from the Reference Group will be used to identify practical lessons for PCTs, key messages for policy makers, and contributions to further theoretical development.  (+info)

(7/245) Influence of gene action across different time scales on behavior.

Genes can affect natural behavioral variation in different ways. Allelic variation causes alternative behavioral phenotypes, whereas changes in gene expression can influence the initiation of behavior at different ages. We show that the age-related transition by honey bees from hive work to foraging is associated with an increase in the expression of the foraging (for) gene, which encodes a guanosine 3',5'-monophosphate (cGMP)-dependent protein kinase (PKG). cGMP treatment elevated PKG activity and caused foraging behavior. Previous research showed that allelic differences in PKG expression result in two Drosophila foraging variants. The same gene can thus exert different types of influence on a behavior.  (+info)

(8/245) Gender-based barriers to primary health care provision in Pakistan: the experience of female providers.

In common with several countries in South Asia, the Pakistan government health system has introduced cadres of community-based female health and family planning workers as a response to gender-based constraints on women's access to services. However, the recruitment, training and retention of such female workers has been difficult. This finding points to the obvious but neglected fact that female health workers must operate within the same gender systems that necessitate their appointment in the first place. The present study used qualitative methods to increase our understanding of the experience of female staff working at the community level and in particular the gender-based constraints that they face. Important problems identified include: abusive hierarchical management structures; disrespect from male colleagues; lack of sensitivity to women's gender-based cultural constraints; conflict between domestic and work responsibilities; and poor infrastructural support. The findings highlight the interconnectedness of women's public and private lives and the interplay of class and gender hierarchies in the patterning of women's employment experiences. The study's conclusions suggest ways in which the organizational functioning of the government health services might be modified to better facilitate the work of female staff.  (+info)


What duties does a social worker do in the emergency room department?


I will be interviewing for a social worker position in the emergency room department, night shift. I'd like to be prepared for the interview by knowing what the social worker would being in this position.
----------

Some assist in supporting victims of crime, accidents and the families. They also help people bought in with no place to live, no benefits and counseling relatives when the patient dies. Being a social worker in an emergency room , especially on night duty is a very stressful job, and you need a strong stomach and character to deal with people in a time of personal tragedy and crisis. You will deal with reporting abused children and also telling the parents. You will also have to finish your work and leave it at the door if you want to not burn out, as you will meet many people who due to circumstances, budget, time restraints and job limits you are unable to help even though you know that you were there last chance.

A very important part is to have a very good knowledge of the various health laws. Also a very strong collection of resources to direct people to so they can get help from suitable places in the morning.

VIP, you cannot save everyone and some people despite asking for help do not really want it or use it.

Be prepared that they may give you a scenario and ask you what you would do. 


How has social stratification influenced the quest to determine Pellagra's underlying dietary cause?


(Social stratification is the hierarchical separation of a population into various groups, generally based on income, race, educational achievement, or family background. Some strata are “upper”; others are “lower.”)
----------

Are you a minority? Sounds kinda like a case of social B.S. The cure is usually watch less T.V. Study hard,stay open eared and closed mouthed ,smile at your opponents, Is Pellagra's a who or an it? dietary cause? WTF?  Hope your brain don't explode,poindexter.


What clinical skills are required in the provision of contemporary social work to patients in a hospital?


Need to describe examples of when social workers have demonstrated a high level of clinical skills in the provision of contemporary social work services to patients and their families within an acute hospital setting.  Need to know what the social workers did.
----------

Social workers help in cases such as death/dying. Take a patient who does not have the potential of full recovery, the doctors, social workers and family sometimes the patient as well have what is called a family meeting. The social worker then explains exactly what the physician said but in words that a patient would understand. Sometimes a Doctor can say something and it is mistaken in the form of false hope. Social workers also play a huge roll with insurance, and finding further placement for that patient if needed, they are responsible for obtaining the patient home health if needed. Most of the social workers that I work with are/were nurses who wanted a change in career, so they do have a lot of medical background.


How do personally balance your family life with your social life after having children?


When I say social life, I mean literally leaving the home to see friends, etc.  I'm just interested to hear other's opinions.
Desmeran- I added you as a contact and I hope you don't mind.  What you said to me a few days earlier was good information and I just wanted to thank you.
----------

most of the time that i'm with friends our kids are playing together and we're hanging out while watching them. and that comes out to quite a bit of social time for an introvert like me.  we have also twice gone on vacation with other couples whose kids are the same ages as ours.

but i'm married; my husband and i are in this parenting thing together; and we each are happy to watch the kids sometimes so that the other gets a chance for some grownup time.  usually i want that time totally to myself but once a month i go out with a group of neighborhood moms and very occasionally i will use my time to myself for some other social thing.

we also have a great babysitter whom our kids adore, plus my parents recently moved reasonably nearby.  so once in a while we'll go out as a couple and do things ... again, usually just the two of us, but sometimes with friends.  probably the latter once every three or four months.

*i'm relieved that you took it in the spirit in which i meant it.  and i'm fine with anyone who doesn't delete my q&as adding me as a contact.


How much do you get from your monthly social security disability payments?


How much does your monthly Social Security Disability pay?
I know it depends on how long you worked, but How much is it in dollars? Like what it a person worked for 5 or 10 years before they started getting disability? About how much would they get a month? And I assume you also get food stamps in addition to the disability payments? Is that true? Or do they expect the person to use their disability payments for food?
----------

There are great calculators on the SSA website. The amount of Social Security Disability you receive is based on your income when you became disabled. 

Look mid-page the disability calculator is there:

Good luck!


How do you go about filing for social security disability for a mental disorder?


I think I have social anxiety disorder or something like that. Have not left my house in over a year, running out of money, need help. Not currently seeing a therapist.
----------

you have to get a psychiatrist to agree to your disability, then you just file for it at social security office


I have extremely bad case of social anxiety, besides medication and therapy are there other ways to overcome i?


I didn't  know what it was at first I thought it was just "shyness" and that I would grow out of it well I developed social anxiety. I consider it a extreme case because it causes skip classes (college) to avoid during presentation and other "social activities". I was actually suppose to graduate already but I'm still in school because this issue. My major is social work irronically and I don't want to change it because I really want to help people but it would be impossible to do with the level of anxiety I feel in social settings.
----------

you can overcome this........i have.........listen to your therapist......it takes work........it is awful having it.......It still crops up occassionally when I am shopping in a mall or in a grocery store. Basically you have to expose yourself to what is uncomfortable. I started at first just imagining being in a social situation.....that even made me uncomfortable. Just the thought of it. Then you work your way slowly.......exposing yourself to uncomfortable situations. the funny thing is after a while because you have practiced it.........it isn't uncomfortable anymore. finish the degree and you'll figure it out after you graduate. good luck :)


How can I get treatment for social anxiety?


I've displayed several symptoms of social anxiety/phobia, but I don't have any health insurance so I can't seek professional help. I live in California - is there a program of some sort that can help me with this, that doesn't require insurance?
----------

 View the information and weblinks for social anxiety/shyness, and self confidence, in sections 9, and 38, at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris  Here is an exercise that can help you. It is called "Act as If." When you are in a social situation, act as if you are outgoing. Talk more, smile at everyone, ask questions, speak in a normal or excited tone, not a meek tone. Watch some of your outgoing peers, and imitate the style of their social behavior.

Research shows that when you "act as if" continually, your image of yourself begins to conform to your new behavior. In this case, you will gain self-esteem and self-confidence, and begin to see yourself as socially normal, not shy. You will become more socially successful, and this will motivate you to continue your new social behavior until it becomes a habit.

Try this for a month, in every situation you can. I am confident that you will become much more comfortable and outgoing. One form of therapy is to go somewhere that nobody knows you, and deliberately make an utter fool of yourself: put on a paper hat, and scream out: "I'm queen/king of America!", or something else ridiculous, then get back in the taxi, (warn the driver of your intentions, first) or car, and leave.      

      People will point, and say: "Look at that idiot". But, you're probably not up to the stage where you can do that, yet (I can, and I used to be shy). It will teach you that, although it isn't actually pleasant, you will survive; be stronger for the experience, and the next time (should you need to repeat this type of therapy) will be considerably easier. Remember: "A fear avoided is a fear strengthened; a fear faced is a fear reduced." Regard it as your final test: once you have accomplished it, the barrier will be broken; just don't go too far, the other way! Learn to laugh at yourself, and give a big, cheesy grin when others see you do something foolish, as we all do, occasionally. It is endearing, if you don't do it too often. Use positive affirmations: for example: "I am very likable and other people feel comfortable around me".      

      Write down all of your self limiting beliefs; then write down the positive counter of them, (exact opposite) and repeat them and imprint them into your mind.
Most importantly: Force yourself to approach somebody and initiate some sort of communication. Start out small by asking the time and directions and gradually go bigger.

 Although there are anti-anxiety medications (anxiolytics) available, these come with risks, and the possibility of side effects, habituation, even addiction, and withdrawal problems, and are unsuitable for young people. 

Try having a cup of "Tension Tamer", herbal tea, by Celestial Seasonings, (from supermarket tea, or health food aisles) or make some at home, and cool, then bottle, and drink as needed (I find it so strong tasting, that I need to drink it quickly, followed by something like fruit juice, to take away the taste, but others may find it more tolerable). C(h)amomile tea is a more palatable option. As with all herbal/green teas, use lemon/lime, and/or a little sweetener (NOT ARTIFICIAL!!!) but no cream, or milk.  

     Xylitol, or Stevia is preferable, (health food stores) or fruit sugar (fructose, such as "Fruisana", from supermarket sugar aisles) or even a little honey, because these will reduce "sugar spikes". Valerian has also been recommended, but some people experience "valerian hangovers". Ensure you know how you react to it, before doing something potentially dangerous, like going out on the roads. The idea is to use the above like water wings, to provide initial, short term support, while you become proficient in the above techniques.
