    Why, ctg, you just hit the nail on the head! You set limits, decide what you can reasonably do, and move forward. Yes, sometimes it feels really, really hard. But, you said it yourself, your dad...

    Meaning no disrespect, but isn't she an adult now? It took me a long time, when I was on my own, to find, and go to, a dentist I liked. Too many sadistic hygenists in my past. They liked blood!...

    Tracfone is cheap ($100) per year, and is carried on AT&T. I've gotten and received calls in the Adirondacks, where Verizon can't reach. Clean, good reception.
