, 2002) is a good self-report measurement to use to assess the presence of DSM-IV criteria for GAD (Craighead, Miklowitz, & Craighead, 2008). Environmental Factors Susanna is happily married for 16 years and has 2 children, a boy who is age 12 and a girl age 8. She has a very demanding job as a vice principal of a middle school on the lower east side of Manhattan. Her daily commute is by subway and during regular rush hours it takes her approximately one hour to get to work. She has to leave home at 6:30 am to arrive at school before the opening bell rings at 7:55 am and to prepare for the day ahead.
She and her friends who sit around the house for hours discussing all the things the children would do has they grew up, who Tristan would look like most, how she hoped that he had his fathers eyes and her hair. It was a dream come true and she had never been more ready. Until one dreary rainy morning in October. She woke up early that morning not feeling very well although at 27 weeks you never really feel well. Until she found blood.
My first day of Kindergarten was very hard. It was a huge shock for me. Up until I started school, I attended Little Busy Child Development Center. My grandmother owned the daycare, so i was always surrounded by family. On my first day of kindergarten my mom took me to school.
Coincidently, we were both recently fired from our jobs, and we had to go pick up our last paychecks that day. I told him that I would pick him up in an hour. We cashed our checks at a local bar and we were on our way. On the road I told Scott how much fun that the previous night’s R.E.M. concert was and he just laughed and said, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet”.
He said that his name was Crab and that I could call him that if I didn't want to call him dad. While we were talking he told me that he had just got out of jail last week and now he's going to start a new job in Chicago. When Mama Jean came home, Crab told her that he was going to Chicago tonight and he wanted me to go with him. Then Mama Jeanstarted packing my bags and I was upset because I didn't want to leave Mama Jean. Before I left Mama Jean gave me some money so i could come back if it didn't work out with Crab.
I was impressed because she worked full-time, yet found time for another job, that she had as a part-time. Sometimes at night time, when she was finally coming home, she would leave again to help her husband who was cleaning doctors’ offices at night time, also as a second job. But there is more, she was also extremely active in helping her son and daughter with raising her grandchildren by taking them to their extracurricular classes and having them over for every weekend. Later, I realized that this was just a small piece of what she did, she was always putting an effort on learning something: a guitar playing, insurance broker, accounting, and I am sure there is more that I am not aware of from before. It seemed as long as she would learn and make everyone to wonder, when she came over to me and offered to get into a course for the next three years, well that is how I overcome my self-conscience and went for a part-time into the college and got my Practical Nursing Diploma in a first place and now I look forward to completing my Nursing Degree.
I took some classes and shortly I was only 2 classes away from receiving my Associates Degree, but things and priorities changed in my life. I got married to my beautiful wife Cyndi in December 2002 and we shortly had a child on the way. I also converted my job in the Navy to Navy Career Counselor. Because of these changes in my life I put off college and did not pick it back up again till this class. I have found that I really like working and helping people.
He was working about a year at the center, he told me they were hiring. I went to see about the job. Later I learned that they were giving the job to a woman who had a certificate for phlebotomy. At the time another friend of mine had been attending Baker College. He’s going for accounting, and I started mentioning it to him.
