We currently offer COVID-19 rRT-PCR testing by shipping collection kits in bulk to qualifying organizations such as clinics/physician practices, city and state governments, hospitals, nursing homes, employers, and health plans.  A discount if you buy both together. Helix offers a COVID-19 test. Vitagene offers a COVID-19 test if you qualify. However, you will need to meet the requirements to qualify for the test which aren’t easy. Sequencing.com offers a free Coronavirus Health Assessment and a paid $34/use COVID-19 Severe Outcomes Genetic Analysis. FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) offers a CCR5 test for $39; if you have the mutations, you are a lot less likely to get COVID-19; it’s not a guarantee.

Over 1,600 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see its current price.

As always, check prices before you order! You can also check EBay and Amazon in case you find a lower price there, but make sure it’s for the same company and test. Some of the companies show an end date for their sale prices, but many don’t. Amazon loves to raise and lower prices on DNA tests on a somewhat regular basis, usually every few days for some of the major companies, bit less often for other companies. For EBay and Amazon purchases, always activate the test as soon as you get it to avoid problems.

Update to the last post: Genealogical DNA Testing Companies and Current DNA Sales July 9, 2020. As of today, WeGene has not started selling $99.00 DNA kits. I check every few days since at some point I expect to see them offering this price.

Genealogical DNA Testing Companies and Current DNA Sales June 23, 2020

Probably the last update for a bit. I will likely do a July 1st update even if it’s only an update as some companies do flash sales. Will check daily to monitor prices.

The major DNA Sales going on now: 1) LivingDNA sale still 30% off for Summer Sale – no word on when it ends. 2) MyHeritage if you order the https://myheritage.com/kit/ sale $59.00 (still available as of June 23, 2020, regular price $199.00). The regular kit is $79.00 if you order directly through MyHeritage.

TeloYears offers 2 COVID-19 tests for sale – they are only available for bulk orders right now. We currently offer COVID-19 rRT-PCR testing by shipping collection kits in bulk to qualifying organizations such as clinics/physician practices, city and state governments, hospitals, nursing homes, employers, and health plans.  A discount if you buy both together. Helix offers a COVID-19 test. Vitagene offers a COVID-19 test if you qualify. However, you will need to meet the requirements to qualify for the test which aren’t easy. Sequencing.com offers a free Coronavirus Health Assessment and a paid $34/use COVID-19 Severe Outcomes Genetic Analysis. FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) offers a CCR5 test for $39; if you have the mutations, you are a lot less likely to get COVID-19; it’s not a guarantee.

Over 1,600 words. If you are interested in a specific company, scroll down to it and see its current price.

When You Face Too Many Options — Bipolar Me

It often seems that bipolar disorder and especially bipolar depression narrow your life down to the fewest possible choices. Try to take a shower or stay in bed. Eat a handful of cereal or skip eating. Cry or … cry. And that’s all true. These disorders are quite limiting. However, it’s also true that sometimes […]

Guilt Trip – Forgiveness Sundays July 12, 2020

I thought long and hard before making the topic of guilt tripping as this week’s Forgiveness Sundays post. The more I thought about it, the more I realized it’s a good fit as most people who guilt trip don’t stop and think about the cost to both parties when doing guilt tripping. Also, people being guilt tripped may take a while to realize the coercion and manipulation behind the guilt tripping.

Don’t allow friends or family to guilt trip you. I have a friend who loves to guilt trip their spouse, children, sibling, parents, in-laws, and friends. This friend doesn’t understand why they can’t guilt trip me. It’s simple – guilt tripping only works if you allow the person the power to guilt trip you. If you willingly give the individual the power to guilt trip you, you have given them a lot more control of your emotions than you realize. I don’t recommend giving any normal human being such power.

It took me a while to realize I had the power to ignore when people tried to guilt trip me. As someone who worked in the mental health field, I saw some therapists and other medical professionals use the guilt trip route to coerce or manipulate clients into doing what they wanted the client to do. That rarely worked out well for the client in the long run. If anything, the client would at some point realize they had been guilt tripped and hold it against the medical professional. Here’s a good article on the cost to both parties – https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-squeaky-wheel/201305/7-ways-get-out-guilt-trips.

In my opinion, guilt tripping is something to be avoided. It tends to backfire in the long-term more than it helps in the short-term. My friend doesn’t realize the long-term effects guilt tripping has on their relationship with their spouse, children, family members, and friends. The more one guilt trips someone, the harder it is to continue forgiving them. At some point, it’s best to cut the relationship out of your life. It’s not easy if it’s a spouse or parent, but sometimes that’s the best solution if you can’t get the person to recognize why it’s bad to guilt trip others.

My Two Thesis Experiences – Friends University

After seeing this re-blog – Back to Thesis — Day by Day, I decided to add my experiences with thesis coursework.

I had to do an undergraduate thesis for one of my B. S. degrees and one for my Master’s degree. For some reason, the B. S. degree was about 5+ pages longer. In the case of the B. S. degree, each course I took at the college was geared towards adding to each section of the thesis. The last course was spent piecing together the thesis into a final format. It was different at the Master’s thesis, same college, but I worked on pieces of it as I went along, piecing it together in a similar manner as to the B. S. thesis.  The big difference was I had to do a final PowerPoint presentation for the Master’s thesis.
