Hi. Sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment. I was out of town visiting family. Thank you for your response to my posting. My daughter is a nurse so I have an idea how hard you work and how busy you must be! You deserve a lot of credit and admiration. Just to let you know,I'm horrible at using the computer so if you email me and don't receive a response quickly just know I probably don't know how to get back you. I'm amazed I was able to even find a way to respond to you now! LOL. (This is bad because it now means I'm getting old! "Old" people are horrible at technology I hear.....well, guess I prove that!)
I'm not sure if you read my profile but, like you, I have a master's degree (in psychology) and worked in that field many years. Due to health problems I had to retire and go on disability. It was a true struggle in every way at first but I think I have finally adjusted to not working. It sure is tough financially, though.
Well, enough from me for now. Thanks for emailing me. It was very nice hearing from you and I hope to do so again soon! Do you live in NC as I do?
