Diana: Thank you for being there for me and for taking so much time to get information for me. I am so glad you only live one hour away. I hope you come to visit==even for a weekend or however long you would like and we will come down there sometimes. There is a tearoom in Ft. Dodge, too. Have you been there with your friend? I haven't called Stratford to see if the tearoom is still there. I have a tearoom cookbook for the midwest and I will check in there for the phone number. Bye for now==my new Iowa friend, Vicki 2834 days ago
Perwinkle was my favorite name for a counselor at camp when I was a young girl in Washington State. We are transplants to Iowa from California. I was abused by my dad and my mom didn't do anything about it. She is still somewhat abusive to me, but that is her problem. I am trying to deal with it all to this day. I did not raise my children that way but, like you, went inward at ate my feelings away!!! We live in Badger, just north of Ft. Dodge--not a very friendly community. My drs. have told us we moved to the wrong place if we were looking for friends!!! Schucks!! I thought it would be like "Little House on the Prarie"--was I ever wrong. Gotta deal with that now. I hope we can write to each other and maybe discuss how we feel inside instead of paying a bunch of drs. The BIGGEST REASON I AM WRITING IS I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT "VITAMIN D-3" to see if it might help me. Thanks and welcome back!!!

Thanks so much Kitt. This too will pass and is definitely related to Seasonal Affective Disorder. I means more than I can say to have the support from you and others who have been where I'm at. 3186 days ago

Hi Periwinkle! Thanks for the add, I am looking forward to getting to know you as we have some things in common and about the same amount to lose. How neat! We can help each other. I have a lot more to say to you but it is already after 6:30 and I still have to get my walking done and get ready for work.
