Re: Hey Pat, check this one out

My mistake....as usual. It is really hard to get pass the anger when if "it weren't
for the fact that" the individual played with your health and even added to your
misery and walked away with a smile keeps popping up in your head. I realize myself
it is easier to be heard when you try to stay rationale, but to be honest, I don't
think people hear anymore, or care anymore. For the last few days I have been
suffering greatly, with even minor exertion I start heaving like I jogged 10 miles.
I think the individual does not know that "caps" are yelling. I didn't know either
when I first started on the internet.
Have a blessed Resurrection Day!
