    Hi,I will save my medical history for another time. I am so impressed with this site. I have been reading as much as I can for several days and all of you deserve so much credit for your positive attitudes and friendly caring support you give to each other in so many ways. I know I am among friends even though we haven't met yet. Thankyou. Becky
