Glad you found us fern. I found this website about 2 years ago when I was first diagnosed, but I had been going through symptoms for a year before that. The people on here are great, and they have helped me through some of the most difficult days ever. I have great family support, but I don't think they always get what I go through daily. I am not a complainer, so they see me function pretty much the way I used to, but on bad days I just try to suck it up. It's nice to be able to talk to people who understand the whole process. Looking forward to getting to know you.
Hugs and Angels,
