Dear friends, after all these e-mails, my abdomen is in agony,the stress is making me sob, and I can't stop. This site is supposed to be my sanctuary. But I agree we all have a right to express our opinion and be honest with our experiences or what's the use. Say what you feel or there is no point to this site. All my prayers and love to the names and people behind them that I've met on this site. Sally Grigg
