I hope you find these resources useful.  If your quality of life has been altered or disrupted, do not give up trying to have the problem corrected.  Be patient with the miles of red-tape that may tend to confuse and discourage us rather than provide the help we seek.

Stop by the Message Board  If none-the-less it is your opportunity to vent, and at least you will know you aren't alone in your plight.
