Everyone Needs Help

I used to wonder why and how my friends, co-workers and family members were getting divorced. What intrigued me more was the acrimonious manner in which the cases were ending up. Nonetheless, I didn’t need to wait for long before I got the answers. Two years ago when my seven-year marriage came to an abrupt end. I have yet to recover from the split – I am still carrying a lot of baggage with me.

When I first met ex-wife, Triza some ten years ago, I never thought we would end up as an item, let alone have two lovely kids together. She had just joined the company I worked for. I found her a bit snobbish and her short cropped hair didn’t make things any better. I preferred women with long hair. Then one day she took the bullet for me and told me that she covered for me because she only felt sorry for me. That’s when I got interested. To cut the long story short, we ended up marrying each other.

All was well until one day she didn’t turn up from work. By then we were not working in the same firm. Upon inquiry, she said she needed a break from me. I’ve never been shocked like that in my life. I let have her moment, but she did not come back. She was getting married to our next door neighbor who was several years younger than her. She needed a divorce, she told me.

My divorce lawyer was from hell, simply because I didn’t want to let go. Apparently, my life had come to a halt as I spent a lot of dollars chasing non-issues, not to mention the frustrating court system. What’s more, I hated my ex-lawyer with passion, which drained me emotionally. My divorce lawyer was awful, he only created conflict rather than resolve.

Then I met one of the divorce lawyers in Modesto Ca from heaven. She had been recommended to me by a friend who understood my case because he had trodden the same dreadful path. She has been handling separation and divorce cases for the last 20 years and has an excellent reputation among the legal community. My divorce lawyer listened a lot and soon recommended me to a divorce counselor. This worked out great. But the best part is that she took charge of the whole process.

Things started moving. She not only had my interest at heart but also moved with speed to protect our children and my property. Within a short time, she had identified my areas of need and those of my wife. Soon even my ex’s lawyer was towing to her line and we were all having amicable discussions. Just like that the divorce proceeding and discussion became, sober, mature and friendly. I even had a coffee date with my ex, which I learnt later, was fixed by my lawyer. Eventually, we did achieve a comprehensive agreement and settlement. True, I lost the custody of my kids but got the visitation rights. I know exactly why I lost both the war and the battle, initially; I was too emotionally involved to even think straight. Today I’m wiser, thanks to my wonderful lawyer.

The Best Out There

It was time for my regular checkup so I visited the dentist to see what my oral health looked like. I decided to get my teeth whitened as well since my teeth were starting to look brown. The dentist advised me to stay away from dark colored beverages and chocolate for a while since too much of these things could make my teeth look unsightly. The dentist also noticed three cavities and he decided to make a new appointment so I can get those cavities filled. He mentioned the importance of daily brushing and cutting back on the amount of sweets I consumed daily.

It appeared that I had inflamed and red gums so the dentist decided to check this for me. The dentist told me that part of the reason for my inflamed gums is the fact that I brush too hard and I am using a hard-bristled brush. He suggested that I brush my teeth with a soft bristled toothbrush since this makes brushing less abrasive. The dentist also said that because I don’t floss effectively, food particles and bacteria stay in my gums, leading to inflammation. This is probably why my gums have been bleeding so much lately.

During the regular checkup I asked the dentist about tips on finding affordable dental insurance since I’m currently paying for my visits out of pocket. He pointed me to some local dental insurance companies that offer wide coverage for various dental procedures and prescriptions to help find the best dentistry for you. I wrote the numbers down and when I arrived home I researched them. I found a provider that I would be comfortable with and that was affordable.

I have a seven-year-old son and during my regular checkup I made an appointment for him. My son loves desserts and although he does not have any dental issues as of now, I want to make sure that his teeth remain healthy. My son is generally unafraid of visiting the dentist but there are times when he hates going. This is when he gets cavities filled or a teeth whitening.

In conclusion, it’s never too late to start getting regular checkups. You want to choose a dentist who is skilled in all kinds of dental procedures and who offers excellent guidance on preventative care for your teeth. A good dentist will also refer you to specialized dentists if your problems required more detailed care. For example, if you need braces you would be referred to an orthodontist.

The Basic Skills

Tony sat down pondering how to do his homework using his computer. He had a load of homework to do given by his teacher earlier that day. He was given a task to write a story and send it electronically to Miss Peters. He had a computer but he was confused on how to use it. His mother came in to meet him in front of a computer. She asked, “Tony, what’s wrong? Do you know how to do your homework?”

His mother, taking a seat beside, mildly explained, “Honey, you see, a computer needs a set of instructions to guide it on how to do each task given to it. These instructions can be found in Application Software or by purchasing custom software in Modesto CA. For example, Microsoft Word can be used to type, Paint Program can be used to draw and so on. You see before you can write a story using a computer, you must make sure you have an application software for word processing. Microsoft Word has some spell check and grammar check programs known as Language software”.

She went further to explain that to send his homework to his teacher, he needed a Communication Software such as Gmail from the internet. This Communication Software will help to send this in a message form to his teacher.

Tony was excited. He jumped up as if he just won a jackpot. He set to work. First, he searched for Microsoft Word in his computer. Using this Application Software Tony typed his story. He noticed some red and green underlines. He called his mother’s attention to this. His mother reminded him of the Language Software imbedded in Microsoft Word which helps to spell-check the text typed and helps the user to process his text to make it readable.

After processing his text, Tony felt it was now good to be submitted. As he went to Gmail after completing his work, he remembered what his mother said about it. She had said that it was as good as speaking to your teacher directly, so he cross-checked his story by taking a final look at his work. He felt satisfied as he began to compose the message to his teacher. “Good morning, Miss Peters, This is my homework.” he typed. He clicked on the “Attach files” button and clicked “Send”.

The next Monday, Miss Peters called the names of the pupils that successfully submitted their homework and his name was mentioned. Tony was thankful to his mother for all the help. She taught him the basic software skills to a computer that every child should learn.
