That was a lovely post to read, thank you. As Isap said, it is a shame so many of us don't feel up to responding to new posts at the mo but it is good to know that talking about our own struggles can also comfort others. It is also good to see new posters helping one another. This site is everyone's to post what, where and when they see fit within the boundaries of mutual respect and consideration.
My one thousandth post, wow! Happy to see most are in the smiley room
