to my post, I had to prepare myself for abuse-
and sometimes I'd be mad all day at some jerk's posting.
I can't believe I did that for as long as I did!

the only comments I get are positive ones.

even when people disagree with something I say they are kind.

being on du is like opening your house to strangers, and most of them psychotic.

anyway.. I appreciate you expressing yourself.
