*claps* I was unable to log on for a few days after posting my original messag
e. Since I usually read my e-mail first, I was forewarned of Steve's reply. A
few times. So it didn't make me mad as it would have if it had surprised me.
There's not a lot I can add in my defense that hasn't been said here, other th
an no, I don't cry to manipulate people, Steve. Didn't I mention in the first
person that I was embarrassed to cry and didn't exactly view crying as a desire
d alternative? But Steve aside, thank you to all who responded positively here
and on e-mail. I appreciate the suggestions and support and feel a lot more co
nfident about dealing with this in the future as I know I will have to.
