Thank you Michelle.
A board like this can be very intimidating to someone who comes in late. I look through the postings and find that everyone seems to know everyone else, everyone is up to date on the latest medications (most of which I haven't heard of). It can be a little scary to sick one's oar into the water.
I accidently stumbled into this site a week ago. I had been in remission for almost eight years. It was a big shock to me, when the CHs came back. I signed the guest book, and received 3 e-mails from other sufferers, offering help, counsel, or support. For the first time since my CHs started (17 years ago), I have conversed with people who really understood what was happening to me. The loneliness has ended, and I will be forever grateful to this group for that.
I will continue to make posts here. Maybe someone can be helped by what has happened to me, and what I know. I know that I have been helped by all of the rest of you. And when I have questions, I hope that people will answer them (or direct me to the answer), even when I ask the stupid questions. You know, the questions that everyone else already know the answer to. Bare with me and take pity on the new kid. :-)
Thanks to all
