hi, francis12 -
yep - it's not a "just ignore it and maybe it'll go away" sort of deal, is it? i am glad for your sake that you are taking this positive step. it will make a difference.
lots of good stuff here - and great men who will go out of their way to help with info, encouragement, understanding, their own experiences and other forms of support.
stick around and get to know us - and tell us more about yourself when you are able to.
