I don't know if I understand enough from what my Mama explained to me about this.  She has sent out books as deborah1175.  She has had a very disasterous experience with her supervisor and a co-worker, and has been put on Valium and Prozac.  I am putting her book stuff on hold for a month, cause the supervisor told her Friday that they are working on firing her.  She wanted me to thank everyone that has ordered books from her, and to apoligize to the people that ordered from her in the last couple of weeks how sorry she is that she couldn't get all the orders out.  Please say a prayer for her, cause she is at the edge of a nervous breakdown, and she is too good to be treated like this.

I'm sorry for going on like this, but I'm really worried about her.  I will try to figure out how to get to her PMs and print them out for her.  I think it will make her feel a little better, cause she has told me about all the nice compliments she has received from the people she has sent books too.

Thanks for listening,

Shawn Hill

Hi, Shawn, it is very good of you to help Mama out like this. She may need you much more than to just help with her books.

One thing I'd like you to do, is go to the top of the page, click on the Help Center tab in the gray bar, and use the "Contact the PBS Team" link there to let the operators of PBS know what is going on with Mama, and they can help you get things taken care of that need to be and maybe make sure you do all that needs done.

Then you need to look at her main account page to see if she has any books under a "Books to Mail" tab, if so, you need to either cancel them, or learn how to mail them.

Also, if she has any books under "Books Enroute to Me" will need to be marked received when they arrive. So, watch the mail if she has any coming.

Please let your Mama know that there are a lot of people on PBS that will be sending her good wishes and prayers that everything works out for her, and that hopefully she will be able to get all the help she needs, both financially, and physically & emotionally. I don't know, and don't need to know the details of the problem, but help her seek out help with this and to not try to do it all by herself.

God's Blessings to you and your Mama, and may He give you both strength and guidance in the times to come.

ETA: Apparently this is already under control by PBS as Deborah's account is already on hold. Thanks Team for helping them out!
