    Thanks!

    Some Licensed Social Workers and psychologists are interesting but their approach is not for me.

    Near Margaretville,NY there is a tiny town called Denver and there is a psychologist or Licensed Social Worker who does counseling for dream therapy which is about dreams people have when they are sleeping. This is interesting but it is not practical for me and what I need.

    I liked Bill Grapone who is a Licensed Social Worker in Oneonta,NY because he does what is called Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

    I liked the psychologist in Oneonta,NY because he did not ask me to take prescription medications and he explained that prescription medications are not for everyone. The psychologist gave Rebekah articles to read to educate her about what an environment is. The psychologist in Oneonta,NY is from New York City and went to a Jewish college in NYC. The psychologist in Oneonta,NY is familiar with rural Upstate New York and New York City. The knowledge that the psychologist has was healing and helpful. If Rebekah had not went to counseling before seeing the psychologist in Oneonta,NY then she would not have been able to do the stuff in 2008 with that psychologist. Prior counseling was necessary to do those things. It is kinda like an educational class. A person has to go to kindergarten before going to first grade. Prior counseling is necessary before doing some stuff.

    Emotional rawness can occur. When they get deep into counseling about issues it is like opening up emotional wounds. A person who is working on healing from emotional wounds can have emotional rawness from getting deep. A box of tissues to dry tears from crying might be helpful. Crying is an expression of emotions. A “good cry” means to sit on the sofa and cry tears and use tissues to dry the tears. Doing soothing things might be helpful. A person has to be taught how to sit there and feel the emotional feelings and process their emotions. How to process emotions is learned. How to express emotions is learned. How to identify the emotions that we feel is learned. Sometimes a person has to wait a few weeks before going to another counseling session because of their emotional rawness which is caused from getting deep.

    I like Bill Cuneen who is a Licensed Social Worker in Delhi,NY. Rebekah saw the Licensed Social Worker Bill Cuneen about once a week for about one hour in 2007 and 2008 and 2009 and 2010 and 2011. Bill Cuneen is a male gender which is okay for Rebekah. Some prefer females have female gender Licensed Social Workers. There are things that Bill Cuneen said that Rebekah did not understand at that time but now does understand. In 2008 when Bill Cuneen said certain things Rebekah did not know what Bill Cuneen meant by what he said but in 2020 Rebekah now understands it. Bill Cuneen is an excellent Licensed Social Worker but some people don’t like him because he moved from NYC to Delhi,NY. One topic discussed in counseling was about men and relationships. Some of the things discussed are things that I would have known if I was given education in those areas of life but some people don’t think these things should be discussed. People who are taught about male and female relationships develop differently.

    In Upstate New York they don’t educate about sexual stuff. They say just let the boy learn how from the girl. And let the girl learn from the boy. Learn from doing. Some things have to be learned from doing but they don’t get guidance on how to do stuff differently. In NYC they go to counseling with psychologists and Licensed Social Workers and this is normal in NYC. In NYC they go to counseling almost every week and it is necessary. Going to the dentist is necessary just like going to counseling is necessary.

    Some Licensed Social Workers became Licensed Social Workers because they wanted to heal themselves from their emotional pain. Some psychiatrists became psychiatrists to heal themselves from their emotional pain. A lot of psychiatrists are on prescription medications and have drug dependency. A lot of Licensed Social Workers are on prescription medications and have drug dependency.

    The guidance that Rebekah got when she was in 7th grade to 12th grade in about 1985 to about 1992 is the information that Rebekah uses to decide whether the kinds of counseling are for her or not. If Rebekah did not go to Licensed Social Workers when she was in high school she would have taken prescription medications from the psychiatrist and would have developed drug dependency and she would not have done the healing work.

    Accountants and auditors who worked at Billboard magazines and VNU,Inc in New York City in about 1994 provided guidance to Rebekah. The way that the accountants and auditors think is a lot more methodical and exactness. It is a different way of thinking. No tattoos on Rebekah because of what the accountants and auditors taught Rebekah when she worked at Adweek magazines and Brandweek magazines and Mediaweek magazines at Billboard magazines.

    Some people go through phases A phase I went through was when I wanted a tattoo In about 1999 to about 2010 I wanted a tattoo AND I really thought I wanted a tattoo BUT why did I want a tattoo ? I wanted a tattoo because a LOT of people had tattoos I did NOT know why I wanted a tattoo at that time In 2019 I do NOT want tattoos and I am grateful that I do not have tattoos I am VERY grateful for the people who gave me those stick on wash off tattoos in 1999 to about 2010

    I lived in NYC in 1994 to 2006 so I have had the opportunities to sift through the different kinds of lifestyles and different kinds of people John DeNigro has NOT lived in NYC so when John goes to NYC he wants to see lots of concerts and exciting stuff which is okay John DeNigro will want the lifestyle of party and party some more and go to bars to smoke cigarettes and drink some beer and see pretty women John has NOT had the experiences of living in NYC and having LOTS of women pay LOTS of attention to him

    Get people who have HIV and AIDS to do these jobs for employment please! This is one reason why I left working as a teacher in 2006! How many students died? Some students die before their eighteenth birthdays which is sad!! NYC Department of Education always has a shortage of teachers! Why are some people trying to bitch block me from working as a teacher? They don’t want to work at employment as teachers in the inner city schools that Rebekah worked in and would work in! The geographic locations that have the highest salaries is where Rebekah wants to go please! There is a reason why the employees are paid those higher salaries! The cost of living in NYC is more! Food cost more in NYC!

    Jewel had HIV in NYC in about 1994 to 2006 🤓 Jewel is the first name of one of my students in the Bronx 🤓 Jewel was approximately ten years old and in about fourth grade

    How did Jewel get HIV and AIDS? 🤓😰🥵🤬🤬🤬😭😭😭

    It is a very sad and upsetting story 🤬 Jewel’s story is very upsetting to know

    Isaac is a boy who was in my classroom and he had HIV and AIDS in about 2004 🤬 Isaac was about nine years old and his mother also had HIV and AIDS in the Bronx

    These children talk about stuff that some people would say is x-rated but this is what these children live through 🤬 This is their life experiences and they are honest 🤬

    Some people play games of pretend and they are not allowed to talk about sexual abuse 🤬

    They have different ideas

    They don’t think sexual abuse is sexual abuse and that is frustrating

    P811X is the name of a school in the Bronx in about 2000 to 2006

    District 75 schools in NYC

    Why do they get people to work there that are from different geographic areas? NYC Teaching Fellows. Teach for America. There are plenty of African-Americans or Hispanics that live in the Bronx but they don’t work at employment doing these jobs for the children with HIV and AIDS because why?

    That is correct regarding contract it utero

    Isaac got HIV from being in the womb because his mother who gave birth to him was HIV positive

    Isaac’s mother’s first name was Carol and they lived in the Bronx in 2000 to about 2007

    Isaac was born with HIV which is sad

    Isaac’s mother got HIV from having sex with a man which is upsetting

    Jewel is the first name of a female student who was in elementary school in 2000 to 2006 in the Bronx

    Jewel’s mother was dead in 2001

    Jewel’s father was also dead in about 2002

    Jewel’s grandmother… it is a very sad and upsetting story

    In 1994 to 2006, The jobs in NYC schools were wiping asses, changing diapers of HIV, AIDS students and teaching these students in the classrooms real, actual academic lessons not sitting around babysitting. Taking them on field trips

    Some Certified Nurse’s Assistant’s wipe asses of elderly people in nursing homes. I wiped the asses of students with HIV and AIDS.

    And these were not my children. These are the children of parents who also had HIV and AIDS.

    Part of the job description is the students are terminally ill and contagious…. When ya take the job … they don’t tell you that the students have AIDS and HIV

    How did these children in elementary school get HIV?

    By the grace of God, Rebekah does not have HIV or AIDS

    Changing diapers and the body fluids in the urine and bowel movements

    In the mouth salavia

    BODY FLUIDS

    Transmission through body fluids

    HIV may be transmitted through certain body fluids that are capable of containing high concentrations of HIV. These fluids include blood, semen, vaginal and rectal secretions, and breast milk.

    HIV is transmitted when fluids from a person who has measurable amounts of the virus in their body (HIV-positive) pass directly into the bloodstream or through the mucous membranes, cuts, or open sores of a person without HIV (HIV-negative).

    Suffolk County Correction Officers Association

    The employees working at the jails have used guns to kill people but yet they are not criminals because why? And most of the people who are made out to be the so called criminals have never used guns and have never killed anyone

    So who will be working in the stores and on farms if all these people are sitting in jails? After all if the employees at jails are cooking and cleaning and doing laundry and paperwork for all the people sitting in the jails, why would anyone want to live in their own apartments when the government is paying employees to be servants to wait and hand and foot on the people in the jails?

    In jails they chauffeur people around

    In jails the employees are paid to cook and wash dishes

    In jails the employees are paid to do laundry

    THIS IS HOW SOME PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING TO THINK BECAUSE WHY? “Well gee what do you have to do to get arrested to be able to sit in jails so that you can have the government pay employees to be servants to you” Maybe the Sheriffs and police officers should work on getting the empty zombie houses renovated for low income affordable housing

    Why sit in jails?

    In jails they have employees cooking and cleaning for them

    In jails they have employees filling out paperwork for them

    In jails they have employees doing laundry for them

    In jails they have three meals a day and housing and employees waiting on them hand and foot… kinda like maids and chauffeurs and ???

    What about consequences that teach them why… ???

    In the post it says worried about the length of time of being in jails which is interesting because maybe you did not read my prior posts where it says what does a person have to do to be able to stay in jail longer to have the government employees wait hand and foot on them and do their laundry and cook and clean for them

    In 1994 to 2006 when I lived in NYC, I could have married money wealthy rich man because the only thing they care about is physical attractiveness and sex

    When you are young at about age 25 and pretty then fuck the shit out of the money wealthy rich man and say pleasant words for his ears to hear and people please… to me it’s shallow

    The money wealthy rich man wants a woman to be his servant

    Cook and clean and have sex in exchange for the man’s pension and paychecks

    Bought and paid for wives are what they are called

    This is not an insult

    I don’t know if I could be a bought and paid for wife

    My highest salary was approximately $70, 000.00

    Seventy thousand dollars a year was my highest salary and I LOVED my salary and paychecks too

    So when these people in my hometown Walton,NY and Delhi,NY complain about what I get a month for SSDI from the Social Security Administration… in actuality they get more than me from SSI and cash assistance and HEAP and food stamps and WIC and most of them haven’t had to do any real work in their life

    At age 30, I was having the best years of my life so far At age 30, I was working fulltime as a teacher for the NYC Department of Education at schools in the Bronx I was riding motorcycles and swimming in the ocean and …. I lived in my own apartment from age 23 to age 34 in NYC

    People who get SSI from the Social Security Administration and cash assistance and HEAP and food stamps get more than I do

    Use a calculator to figure it out

    In 2001 to 2006, I worked as a full-time teacher for the New York City Department of Education. In the classroom next door, there was a student who pulled a knife out. Elementary age students in 3rd grade to 5th grade.

    An outside line for keeping lines of communication was needed.

    Getting students out of the classroom and containing the student who had the knife in the classroom was no easy task.

    In 2001 to 2006, I worked as a full-time teacher for the New York City Department of Education. We had to evacuate the school because the bomb squad was at the school in 2005 or 2006. We, students, teachers, school employees were headed out of the school and walking up the Grand Concourse headed to the evacuation site when we were stopped and called back to the school. We went to our classrooms and resumed classes for the rest of the day.

    This was not a drill where ya walk out of the school and sit on a yellow school bus for a 1/2 hour. Troop K does some of the school safety team stuff for evacuating the schools in the Bronx in 1994 to 2006

    In 1994 to 2006, The jobs in NYC schools were wiping asses, changing diapers of HIV, AIDS students and teaching these students in the classrooms real, actual academic lessons not sitting around babysitting. Taking them on field trips

    Some Certified Nurse’s Assistant’s wipe asses of elderly people in nursing homes. I wiped the asses of students with HIV and AIDS.

    And these were not my children. These are the children of parents who also had HIV and AIDS.

    Predictions. How can predictions be made? How accurate are the predictions? What kind of tendencies does a person have? What kinds of environments does a person want to be in? What kinds of influences and suggestions and guidance does a person gravitate towards?

    I was seeing John DeNigro only and it was a monogamous relationship 🙁 At least to my knowledge the relationship with John DeNigro was monogamous from about October 2012 to December 2017 🙁 John DeNigro proposed to me to get engaged in about June 2013 and John and I went to church together 🙁 I asked John DeNigro what kind of lifestyle he wanted to have 🙁 Does John want the lifestyle of going to church almost every week and working on having a healthier family? Or does John want the lifestyle of going out to the wee hours of the morning and just be together for a few years and then have a new girlfriend every few years? 🙁 Exactly what kind of relationship does the man want to have? 🙁 I was not seeing anyone else when I was with John DeNigro 🙁 I did not have sex with anyone else when I was with John DeNigro 🙁 When I stopped physically touching John DeNigro which means no touching his groin area and no sex that is when John goes to sit at the table and watches Marilyn Manson videos and drank 8 bottles of beer on Friday nights and Saturday nights 🙁 When John is not getting sex or physical sexual touch then he sits at the table and does not want to talk about anything 🙁 I have not had sex since 2015 🙁 No sex from 2015 to March 2020 which is about five years of no sex 🙁 John does not want to just hug and cuddle and be affectionate 🙁 John DeNigro did not want to read the books for pre-marriage counseling for the Pre-Cana at the churches 🙁 John does not want to eat healthier choices of foods which are fruits and vegetables to weigh less 🙁 John does not like being fat but he eats two cheeseburgers which make him fatter 🙁 John does not like me, Rebekah to be fat but yet wants me to eat two cheeseburgers because why?
