Well here it is - I have been close friends with a woman and her children for the past 10 years (the last 6 very close to her and her now 12 yr old and 14 yr old girls). She had breast cancer about 12 years ago when I met her initially, and during her treatment her husband left her and they eventually got divorced and have joint custody (she is also cancer free). I only consider her a very close friend, and she also feels that way to me (or so I thought). At her request I would act as a \"father figure\" while the girls were at her house and I thought I was doing a pretty good job and I have grown to love them very much. I also would make sure that they were safely cruising the internet and not getting into trouble while online. I would sometimes really get on them about it because they were doing things they shouldn\'t have been doing. Recently I was told that I was wrong for this and that the whole relationship was \"unhealthy\" for the kids. I\'ve not been able to see them much and I\'m pretty devastated by it and need advice badly. I only see them about once a week if I\'m lucky and it\'s not the same anymore. And this came out of the blue and really shocked me. Can anyone offer some insight to this? Rich

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
