Two weeks into bracing the famous "tokyo tsukin jigoku", i suffered stress related hives. Three weeks of medication cleared them but the scars remain..... If i didn't love my newly found job so much, i would have thrown in the towel!

Chibachick i can relate. We get treated the same way too. My son is proud that he is "haafu" even though initially after hearing horror stories of "haafu" kids growing up in japan, we gave him a full japanese name. I see now that we needn't have been concerned or are we just the lucky ones......
