Hey, Sarah, don't worry about me---I'm okay, really. It's just that my husband and I find this board really addictive, in that we want so much to help others, and it sure helps us to keep things in perspective. This woman who (along with her teenaged, mentally retarded daughter) lived with us for almost three years because they needed help, decided to "thank" us by claiming that my husband had been doing something to her daughter since they came back from up north. My poor husband is utterly horrified at the very thought of it, and I can assure you that the very opportunity for it to happen NEVER occurred. This woman has lied to us for many years now about things she knows darned good and well that we can't POSSIBLY check on. This makes things truly harsh for genuine victims/survivors. But despite the damage she's tried to cause, we still want to help others. It hasn't burned us off of that at all.
We just won't help HER ever again. . .
