"I'm not sure what I could say to help, although I'd like to. It sounds like you are dealing with some specific problems that feel like general ones. I don't know what your experiences are, but they sound…"
"Well, you ended up in what seems to me to be one of the worst possible jobs for someone with social anxiety. Unfortunately, it is also one of the easy jobs to actually get.
I agree with looking for help dealing with the…"
"Watch at home with the whole family for the 4 general sessions. Food, especially rice crispy treats, will be involved. Priesthood session at the church building.
Lots of notes. LOTS of notes.

"For a bracket that size you could probably use a knife and a chisel. Cut on the outline of the bracket just deep enough and the remove the wood with a chisel.

The only concern I have is this statement:
