My posts (the ones that I originally posted, not responded to) are almost always '0' or maybe '1' response. Not sure what I've done to imply that I don't need help ... but it's obvious I'm pretty much on my own. I must come across soooo crazy - but there is obviously little on this site for me. So I'll do the best I can with my BOOKS and as a lurker. There aren't that many posts with '0' responses, but I really think I come close to toppoing the lot. (So much for the saying that "there are no dumb questions".) However, there are occasionally those who REALLY do NEED help, so PLEEEEZZZ - for the rest of you - do try to point out to those in need, with really legitimate concerns (like whether to help chicks/ducklings with the hatching process), to applicable stickies (you've got them!), to the appropriate sites - you really could save a chick or duckling or two along the way. REally ... I probably could have used some help along the way. Not to take away from the site - you seem a remarkable support group for many others (there's just something weird about me). It's kind of like my group therapist said, when my husband left me for his secretary , "you know - you just don't seem like you really need help, so I think you should look elsewhere -- maybe you should seek individual therapy ...". Not sure how, or why, I convey this -- buy I do. My life is good (maybe you've sensed this) - so I'm not crying out for help so much for me. Keep up the good work, cuz there is good work here. AND I DO MEAN THIS FOR OTHERS, tho' I confess to wishing I could have had a bit more input for me along the way as well. So for some of you, (PLEASE, look for those with '0' responses and try to provide some feedback, if you can). That's where my future energies on this site will be, if I'm not disowned, (though maybe my input is considered more harmful than good as I'll be the first to admit - that there is always much to be learned). No more posts - I'll only try to provide a thoughtful post, here or there for those whom no one else is responding to. Whoa - I'm anticipating that the only responses, if any, coming through now will be harsh.
