Dr. Armstrong, thank you for sharing your story and the impact of micro-aggressions against you and your son. I would agree that we should love our children unconditionally and shouldn't be judged as better for loving someone who is different than others. Thank you for raising this one small issue and point of awareness for the community to think about and reflect on ways that we continue harming our LGBT neighbors. Amy, I'm not sure that there will every be conclusive scientific evidence to support your claims as most review boards would rightly judge them as unethical - conversion therapy has been outlawed in many jurisdictions. I think you are right that name calling and the vitriol associated with certain groups doesn't help further a conversation. I also don't find it helpful and doesn't further conversations when comparisons are made between human sexuality and issues such as abortion/conception. This is like comparing apples and almonds- they aren't even in the same ballpark in my opinion. Our LGBT brothers and sisters are seen as equal human beings in God's eyes and we should see them as such and not try to change them. That is our calling as Christians and Social Workers.

Thanks for checking-in Brenda. I don't think it was successful. I'm still having regular afib episodes. I'm waiting to hear back on what the next steps are. The doctor wanted to see what the rhythms looked like. Hopefully you won't need a pace maker, that doesn't sound good. I was told the ablations would be putting an end to my mid-workout heart rate spikes.

Haha no worries! I enjoy seeing your stuff on Facebook. One of these days we'll have to connect when we are back South!

Thanks Steve, that is an interesting thought. I'm not sure if hemoglobin was in the original blood work or not.

Yes, using a standing desk is a great idea. Do you have experience using it??

I agree Rene, there has been a lot of great information published about social media. We need more people to conceptualize it into the social work realm and who better to set that example and process than Christian social workers!

I've been using ideas from the Ready to Run book I reviewed last year. It has been a helpful starting point!
