This site will help you deal with and improve your response to these changes. No one said that life would be easy, but we could help make it better.
We seek contributions from those who have faced these types of challenges and how they have overcome them. We hope that you find some things of interest to you. Please let us know any comments you might have. Thanks for visiting this site, which now is over three years old.
