So my roof in the back part of my house is near collapse. I need to get the house cleaned and get rid of a ton of trash (bit of a hoarder I'm afraid) so I can try and sell the darn thing before it collapses and gets condemned.

(((((((((Katrina)))))))))) (that's a hug) you have been through so much at such a young age, and the way you see the world is somewhat more realistic than most I'm afraid...disillusionment is so hard on us but there is hope. I just want to share with you a personal story. I was betrayed hurt or tram...

((((((((((Ahorse)))))))) Thank you and thank you for your supportive post. I am so sorry to hear that happened to you. I understand what it is not to be able to trust again, especially when down. Even with friendships, after facing a series of betrayals, now I keep mostly to myself. I get very lonel...
