GB, welcome to the site. Your T sounds like mine and he does not let me dodge anything either, but gently and safely guides me through it. There are things I don't get, but I'm making progress. I've been here since last July and I've found love, support and understanding here. I started T late last year so I'm moving forward. I am glad you found MS, and know you will find friends here, other guys who really do "get it" without explanation or whatever, we just do. Welcome Brother!
