Hi thank you for your kind comments and trying to stick up for me a while back.  I was then and still am now in a very vulnerable spot and I really need to learn to let things roll off of me and not react to negative comments.

Again, thank you

Sandi

Hi Debz. Sorry for your loss. Your in good company here. You're absolutely correct about the bad ride. I described caring for my wife's, long term illnesses, as a roller coaster ride in total darkness, never knowing when we were going to go up or fall over a cliff. Hang on/in there we're all going to make it!!!
