Stacey, I don't know what to say. Do you have any other family to help you? Do you have a church or other religiuos center? God loves you, but you need physical touching and real hands on helping. I've been to the point where nothing seems to mattter and I decide to "checkout early", but that's not the answer. Try to read uplifting books, or talk to God and give him all your problems. I know its easy to say, but please don't give up and try to think positively. This site has many wonderful people with similar problems to yours. At the very least you can talk to us and we'll be here for you on line. We care. Love, Sally Grigg
