Lyn, you have been there for me when I was dealing with my grandmother and you still are. I would sorely miss you if you were to leave. But if in the event you feel you must then know that my thoughts are with you.
Not everyone is meant to be a caregiver and when I knew that I just couldn't handle it anymore I knew that it was time to move my Gma out and give me a much needed rest you were there for me. Of course I never abused her, verbally or otherwise but I knew that I just couldn't handle it both mentally and physically anymore. You were there for me when I made that tough decision and helped much more then you can possibly know. Really, you shouldn't let one post upset you so. I know it's rough to read these things and not want to yell but we can not control the world - I know what it is that you are referring to. I couldn't get myself to respond because I was shocked.
If you feel the need to step away from HW, either permanently or temporarily I can take over the AZ forum for you if you wish. I don't know as much as you but I am willing to give it my best.
