I cant be the only "oddball" out there, can I? I can feel empathy for others out there and my heart goes out to them and at the same time, I feel like things are hopeless. I haven't been on here since last year and I have found that rather than improve, things have gotten worse! How I've managed to get thru I'm not sure - but I probably have to give my 3 parrots most of the credit!!!
