But there are certain events that a majority of people go through; everyday children are born, family members are lost and addiction takes over lives. At first blush, the birth or adoption of a child is often met with overwhelming joy, excitement and fulfillment but for some it gives them the burden of anxiety and stress. The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices. Bringing something to life that you carry on your body for nine months makes your love become limitless. Having a baby comes with a lot of responsibility and dedication to devoting your time to nothing else.
Before I read the book, I could have been overdramatic and reacted theatrically to what now seems as silly happenings and consider myself to have a difficult life. Although I know my life is not perfect, I now regard my family and home life as the life I would chose to live over any other. The thankfulness this book has rooted in me has forever changed my life. Whenever I find myself in a difficult situation, I know that I have a family who loves me and will support me through anything, regardless of what it is. I realize now that this is a blessing that others may
Interview with Pangmee Rachel Jumps Jessica Alvarado San Diego City College Due: February 13, 2011 Interview with Pangmee Learning that your pregnant can be an exciting and nerve wracking experience. When I started the interview with my cousin, Pangmee, she warned me that she was going to be extremely graphic, so I could have every detail possible. I interviewed her in my home so we wouldnt be interupted, and also to be honest so I would be more comfortable. I was very nervous to be interviewing someone about something so personal. Once we began I was fascinated with the many emotions that come with being pregnant, both wonderful and unfavorable.
It was her mistake, so she is going to take on her responsibility, and be a great parent for her unborn child. She said, “If it was my choice i would have got pregnant after college” (Duval). Luckily, her boyfriend, her family and friends were unexpectedly supportive of this major change in Harley’s life. Everyone preached to Harley about how tough it would be with having a baby, she didn’t think anything of it. The only worry in their minds was Harley and her junior year of high school; hoping and expecting she would finish
After this major change in her, Much-afraid is full of love and joy and able to enter the High Places. She is full of so much joy and love that she goes back to the Valley of Humiliation to minister to her family so that they can experience what she has. Grace and Glory has definitely earned her name which also reflects her new character brought out through her triumphant journey. If it were not for her journey to commence, she would still be Much-afraid: one of the Fearings living down in the Valley of Humiliation and married to Craven Fear. No matter how long the journey or how high the climb is, if a person relies on God, they can get through it.
What is the saddest part of an ED for me to grasp is that a young girl may be able to overcome an ED but can potentially suffer the lifelong effects of what she did to her body years prior. This is an obstacle that we as clinicians need to acknowledge because the road to recovery is long but it is also a lifelong process that our clients need to be made aware
Also the Mayo isn’t just my place, it is many other people’s place too, but I am so thankful to be able to call it my place, because it changed my life drastically, and made it a lot better. When I went there I thought I had it tough, but then I just took a second and looked around a realized that my problems were nothing compared to some families and individuals. Later on in my life I would like to return to the Mayo Clinic to and reflect, and observe any advancements that it has added. I plan to tell my children what happened to me and show them where I had to go for my appointments and other meetings. I know for a fact that when I return there, the atmosphere will be no different at all.
It has made me a strong person, it has helped me overcome negative people, and it has made me prepare for future challenges. When I pregnant with my daughter Carolina, who’s now 12years old, I was told that it would be a risky pregnancy because the baby was breach and was having a hard time breathing inside my body. For this reason, I had to have a C-section immediately since the baby would have choked on the umbilical cord. I was in a lot of pain after the operation and I was very mad that I couldn’t have a natural childbirth, but as a mother, I did what had to be done to have a healthy child. The second moment in my life where I faced difficulty- was in my marriage.
The really hard part for patients with MS is how they are able to continue their lives and being able to adjust their lives to their disease. Often they will need help from the people close to them to be able to understand and accept that they have to find a new way of continuing their lives to accommodate their Multiple Sclerosis. MS sufferers usually become dependent of the people close to them and this leads now and again to stress in their relationships. Sometimes it can result in the breakdown of a relationship with a life partner. Multiple Sclerosis results in a person and their families going through a lot of physical, psychological and emotional hardship, caretakers can often feel trapped by the task of looking after a person with
“Living with Person Centred values will change my world.” By Kaye Bennett. The title of this essay is very heavily weighted for me as the short time I have been studying personal centred therapy I can honestly say it has turned my life upside down. I am going to explain the theory of Personal Centred Counselling and then explain how the practice of this has massively impacted my life. The Personal Centred approach was developed by Carl Rogers (1902-1987) He has completely changed the face of counselling from the old school Freudian way of thinking, which was that the patient was sick and “needed the authoritive analysis that the therapists where imposing upon their patients” Hall (1997:1). Carl Rogers put it beautifully himself (1961:11&12) “that it is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried” Thus the patient who is sick in the head becomes the client who has all the answers to their problems buried inside.
