Why are there so many sites ,but none of them give you any help unless you send money ,I would gladly pay for help but there is nothing out there to help I can see whats happening I don't need to read the same thing over and over and over.......... again.All I would like is a site or a # to call for some actual help or advice,to help me deal with what is going on. I used to depend on my wife for everything now she can't even make dinner and I have to work 10 hours a day and am afraid of what I'm coming home to on a daily basis.
