Hey WorkInHere1 - glad to see you joined up to our Canadian Group - we plan on taking over the world - you do know that don't you? I was diagnosed a year later then you - and it's great to see that we're able to share stories about how things have changed over the years (32 gauge needles - sweet). Where abouts does your truck route take you? I have a friend who used to work out of Montreal/Ottawa - but he decided to pack up and move to British Columbia - so he rarely does hauls out this far anymore.
