Hey Katie - ditto. Any info that might be able to help is worthwhile. Having to go to 3 different forums must be confusing. I have a hard time trying to keep the info from this place straight in my head!
I find the easy accessibility to information and so many different topics covered here invaluable. Plus the people are so friendly and giving. If I had to go to a support group with specific meeting times it would not work for me as I would never drag him to those.
It is great that we can use this forum when it is personally convenient and be able to print off info, be directed to articles and links that provide such useful info and just have a place to vent and feel "not so alone" dealing with this.
So definitely stay even if it is only partially relevant.
