Hi Sherry, thanks for the encouragement. It sure helps to know I'm not alone... The best medicine for me! I may not sound like it when I post my messages on here, as I'm usually venting my frustrations, but I seem to be handling all this much better since I've found people that truly understand.... Thanks!
