I'm very saddened to see no response to my discussion. "what a nightmare, please wake me up!" I see it wasn't interesting enough. I just needed a little advice that's all. We all do every now and then. I guess i'll go to another board. Good bye!

I'm sorry - I should have at least responded with something. Actually it wasn't that your post was not interesting - it was overwhelming. I didn't respond because I didn't know what to say - "nightmare" certainly defines what you are going through. My own life is relatively tame compared to what your life is like, and I just couldn't think of anything to make you feel better - words are not adequate for something like that.

I'll think on it some more and try to get back to you with something more positive. But please don't think it is because I don't care - it's because I don't know how to help you.

Oh, it was very interesting. Sad but interesting. It took sometime but I finally came up with a suitable response. I had to sort through some troubled feelings of my own before I could give you an answer.

Not everyone can answer a post immediately. Some need to be processed before being responded to. Give us a chance to think things through to be able to give you our best thought out responses.

If you are still unhappy with the folks here, well, I am sorry about that. We do the best we can with what we have; ourselves, our families, our jobs, our lives.

Do what you feel is right for you. If that would be a different board, may I suggest a few?
