Thank you for for the article! you are and have become my ‘support group’. I’m sorry if any of things I write or wrote offend you or anyone in anyway. But in my self made loner life I’m glad to have found this website I don’t have to try to be or become someone I’m not. This MS makes me a stranger to myself.
