Hi Diane,

I was diagnosed in May 2009. I don't visit or post here much anymore, but try and help when I can and still check in. Unfortunately, many who I connected with on here are no longer around. It has been a wonderful resource and place to find support, inspiration, knowledge and understanding. I will be forever grateful for this amazing website. I am so glad that you are doing well Diane and still post. You are wonderful and I wish you the best always xx
