Welcome here. I am very glad to hear that you had such a positive and helpful experience. It is a good thing to hear and to know. It is encouraging to all of us to hear of another survivor's success and happiness. I hope that you will continue to share your joy and your struggles here.

what a difference good help makes eh?

But it's NOTHING without the determination to use that help.
As Survivors we owe it to ourselves to be our own man, as you say "superman" we ain't.
But who needs superheroes? aren't ordinary heroes just like 'us' just as powerful?

"YES" \:D
