    Undiagnosed food alergies lead me to a gluten free and milk free diet - why not stick with it ?

    I'd held off from trying a pheromone dispenser until now. I've ordered a couple to see if it does the trick as we have near enough the same problem with one of ours. They mostly ignore him and his growls, but he does physically lash out at them occasionally if they get too in his face, usually at feeding time.

    *Especially* if you get your LCSW, yes. My wife isn't going that route, but my understanding is that with an LCSW you can basically open your own practice and set your own work schedule and rates if you want to go the counseling route. There's also medical social work, like in hospitals, and I understand that pays pretty well too.

    I was reading your thread with interest, and wish you the best of luck. You can do it!

    My wife is a social worker with a county job at Adult Protective Services. She's making enough to support us while I finish out my allied health program, and we live in California's Bay Area. Don't underestimate your earning potential with a MSW.

    I'd say I had 1 dog and 1 cat. Easier to deal with since most places don't even care enough to check if you're not having a zoo in your apartment. Yea, I've had some friends go to the room mate section or rent area and find some good deals that would tide them over a few months until they got a lease or mortgage going.

    Egads, no! The VA (Veterans Hospital) has tons of social work jobs. The nurses and social workers run the VA.

    Now, it can be hard to get a SW job with just a bachelors. And it can be difficult with you just get out of school, when you're just a LMSW, though less so. Once you get your LCSW, though, you're golden. You can go anywhere, do anything even private practice.

    It can be hard to get a job if you limit yourself to one place and one population, but if you're open to working anywhere and with anyone, it's not too hard to find a job. Besides, teaching is also an option (even if it is just as an adjunct).

    I know social work is an over-saturated profession, but it's because there are a lot of horrible social workers out there. If you're a good one, you'll have no trouble getting a job, trust me. We've had to hire several social workers over the years where I work (because ours moved on to jobs with better schedules or decided to take time off to be with family), and it was hard to find good social workers.

    You're welcome, Dinah. You seem like just the kind of person who can fly through that kind of crazy and come out even more stable on the other side.

    you look good. and not judgey-faced at all.

    But something else there, as if you are thinking of doing something mischievous but still contemplating it.

    Wow, I've got five and I just neglected to tell management about more than two dogs. Mmm, you can always try looking on backpage.com for something. What kind of pets?

    Ah I live in the Galleria and I managed to find a cheap 1 bed 1 bath fairly easy. You might have better luck looking Sugarland, its close by.

    As one of the people who live in Houston, if (hopefully) you move to this city. I'd love to hang out and be your friend. ^.^ I don't find many people that are enjoyable to talk with. I can even reccomend cheap apartments and whatnot if you need it. Depending on the college campus.

    I've had other people tell me the exact thing when I explain various situations I was in as a child with my mother. It's humbling to know that I'm not alone since, when I was a child, it felt like I was the only one. I'm sorry you had to experience the same. I often wonder how it shapes personalities in those affected.

    Haha. Yeah, I think enough tattoos are regretted without adding 'got it done by a meth-head who couldn't draw' to the list of reasons.
