Hi Zeekie,

I think there is some of both. I think that there are people who really do care, but of course there are going to be some who don't. The world is full of many different type of people.

None the less you have come to a good place where all of our members do care. So if that is what you need, stick with us. We are honest and share our experiences with eachother and good and bad.

Take care, keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

I'd say this is an honest question and deserves a straight up honest answer. Many people act like they do when they don't, that is a fact of human nature...that is where discernment comes into the picture. Surround yourself with people that you have identified as trustworthy, moral, caring people and you are setting yourself up for only good. If you do the opposite, even as "kinda" friends, if you keep them around, it is only a matter of time until that dishonest person turns on you. It is worlds better to have 2 great true friends than have 20 that you're always questioning yourself about. The answer, in majority (and this might just be my negativity coming out a little, I try to keep it down) I'd say is yes, so you just have to pay attention who you associate yourself with. This place is a very good place for exactly that, you get support, help, an ear(eyes as it is) to listen(or read) to problems always helps, topped off like a cherry on a sundae with caring responses. Keep asking these questions, you have them inside and if you don't let them out to be sorted they will begin to fester and only get more troublesome. There is no problem in asking that question, it just needed a little understanding to supply the answer. Good luck and keep the questions comin :-)

We care. This is the place for support and to read/listen to others with similar problems. Also I totally agree with Misunderstood. Well written!. I can relate to many postings in here. I take comfort in knowing I am not alone.
