Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

When you count how many warm weather teams there are and how many domed stadia there are, you'd think its a no-brainer to schedule early season games out of the weather.

Apparently, the schedule has been set up via a computer system the last several years. I guess "Watson" figures if the weather doesn't bother him, it won't bother us.

Oh, bother...

That just makes it easier to plan ahead and schedule games in warm weather climate and domed stadia.

I'm in tears tonight. I was a Mentor in my writing forum, but they decided to take that away.

They don't think I'm mentally up to the job, and it isn't fair, for I mentored several folks about their work. I was always kind and helpful.

I guess that nurse isn't the only one who thinks I'm retarded. Wow, this hurts.

Dear CCL,
That breaks my heart. My late wife was brain injured, and I can understand the frustration you feel. It is not fair for you to be treated that way.

I'm here for you too {{Joyce}}. The SC is right, don't let them get you down, but it must hurt so much to be treated so badly. If you fell and broke your body most would give you time to heal. How ignorant people can be.

Oh no! I'm so sorry. ((HUGS)) for you, and I'm so sorry to hear of your wife's passing. Thank you soooooo much for saying that; I appreciate you so much. I didn't feel it was fair, either. I need challenges, and it's gone now. Thank you for sharing about your wife. I am sorry for your loss, and it must have hurt you to post this. Thank you so much.

((HUGS)) back at you, Kayelle. You're right. I'm really hurt. I don't mean to be rude but if I fell and broke my hip or leg, you're right.

Hugs from NC, my Ogress. It will be okay, I guess.

I PM'ed the admins begging to don't do this to me and please let me handle challenges. I don't know where to go now with my writing.

I'll never be taken seriously ever again.
