Hi...I won't bore you by writing it all again I did it under the thread "I can talk and I can sing"..15 years this November and going strong, I don't know the secret but a sense of humour certainly helps as does this forum with good people to talk to who you know actually understand what you are trying say. Good Luck coz you will need some occasionaly and best wishes coz you will need them on the black days..ps if you want to swap plates sometime just to see how someone else feels let me know....
Regards to everyone.
Gone sailing.
Dave

By way of a bump, to add to the topic and in order to introduce myself: I celebrated 15 years of survivorship in March 2006. I'll post the entire story if y'all think it may help others (it has through advocacy and local survivorship programs in the past 15 years, no doubt).

Just found this site and board yesterday and look forward to being part of this community.

Best to all and remember to accentuate the postitive,
Kathy M
