I would like to wish everyone on this forum and at OCF a fruitful year. To those who are out of treatment, a continued road to better health and to those who are still in treatment, a smooth progression to the light at the end of the tunnel. To those who have done so much to support the cause, may your efforts be richly rewarded.

We are approaching the final week of treatment. It has not been easy, but I would not have been able to keep plugging away without the knowledge that I daily glean from your postings and the sense of camaraderie that I feel each time I come on to the site.

Have a happy new year all!
