Thank you for putting this down, Alain.  It is/was none of my business to know, but I admit finding it awkward to respond to something without knowing what had happened.  Since I, too, admit to having made a major misjudgement when first out... and then somehow connecting myself, briefly, with a person I called psychonut (he heard voices, heard men in the apartment, out on the deck in the pouring rain when there was no access, etc.) much too late in life to have done such a thing and to the degree that I gave him three choices:  he could remove himself and his things in an hour; I would take him to the emergency room or I would call the police.  He opted to leave on his own.  I feel sorry that you have had to go through this but can assure you that eventually you will get around and put this behind you.  Best, Win

Hey Alain,

After reading your other post last night, it left me with trying to understand what had happened. I went to my bed with that thought on my mind. I just could not figure it out. However, with your post today, it explains and it clarifies a lot and now I understand where you are coming from and where you are at.

Hang in there and things will sort themselves out for you.

Sending you my BEST wishes.

Make the BEST of each and every Day!
