Mr. Cat; This is for you: Thank God for the friends that helped you back; so we could meet and enjoy your wit and wisdom here at TCS. I know what it is to loose loved ones (both slowly and painfully and quick and imobilzingly, shockingly sad), but nothing is worse than loosing your sense of self, self-worth, and dignity. I have been there, Joe and only those of us who have, know how much it hurts and how confusing it can be at the same time. Like your experience; most friends and family blamed me for(their words) "the sorry state of affairs I had gotten myself into. . . " A few TRUE friends and two wonderful family members; helped me climb back up out of the whole my life had slipped into and I will never forget (or be able to repay) their kindnesses, but they are also the type of True Friends who remember but don't rehash. . .
