I'm going to be fine" mantra means positive thinking for her. Since the day of her diagnosis, she has not driven, and she pretty much spends her days in bed. Two weeks ago, she was taken...

What a wonderful guy!!! But 3 months... (8 replies)
... Corky, your ex is scum. Is there anything your attorney can do to stop all this? A restraining order? I've never been divorced so I don't have much to offer on that front.
