hi all... its been a heck of a journey since I last visited.. andddd! I was going to write about horrible everything was for me. Then my eyes drifted about 18 rows above and I really read that fineprint where you all list your dx and my heart just jolted out compassion and gratitude for you all being here. (sorry for the run on). So a big thank you to everyone on here.
