Are We Supposed to Like Abby?

This is a problem with Days. If they are not clear about how an audience shuold view a character, very poor writing. The previous Abby was no saint - ala pursuing EJ among other things, but I never had doubt she was a sympathetic character.
But this one drives me nuts. Today what a brat she was, accusing Gabi of stealing Chad while she practically threw him her way while doing her "I am Woman Hear me Roar" bit.
The new team better settle the ship on this one. I'd rather they go full force on Abby the Mental patient. At least that way I'd understand her behavior.
