Nice to see you've joined healingwell! It's a great place to go for resources and to vent, but most importantly the members are simply wonderful people. I think you'll like it here.

Yes! Welcome to the board... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
