So glad you are having to look back on the GBS and not having the GBS today like you were 5 years ago having to start from the beginning, but hate that you ended up with GBS.
But yes you did gain several friends from this and I think all are very special understanding friends.
The most wonderful thing that came out letting this become a great deal of help in meeting others like us is the computer. Without it we would have never met and probably felt like we were all alone. But this computer has done so much good for many of us with all kinds of diseases! For that! I am truely grateful! Hugs!
