Okay, while we are on a roll here, I, too, would like to render my apologies to "Anonymous" as well, as I was fed with plenty of fuel to burn after reading how upsetting your remarks were to the group and specifically, our drs. I join Bev in stating that there are sooooo many people here who care about each other because we are the only ones who truly understand what is going on here and the suffering we endure every day. Hang in there, we can only go up from this point.
