Hello! How Do You Do, and....HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Christopher.
(I have noticed that so many members have been diagnosed on or near about Christmas...wonder what that's all about. Bad enough to be dx....but at Christmas; is a double whammy!)
Best Wishes NOW....and on the next 364 days!
How's it all going? Do you have any questions or comments?
You haven't been on in a while and I wondered if you were ok.
