    Ha Akiko,

    For your own good i removed your post from the site. I wish you all the best but this website is not designed, nor is it wise to discuss, things that bother you on a personal level and your own stugles, on an open website. You post it so all can read it and that is not wise.

    greetings Vera Zhaoying
