    [email protected] my name is Bam. How are you? When I do found out I was sick I was extremely lost and confused because I had no idea what to expect or anybody to talk to about it. I wish I knew about scope when I first got sick. There's a lot of great people on here to talk to about a wide variety of subjects that you can find in the category list. We are all basically going through the same things. I know you can find something interesting on here.

    Hello @carol16 I don't know if you got my last message but I was telling you that they have a benefit adviser on here you can ask. I know they could definitely help you answer some questions. You can find them in the category section. They are really knowledgeable  and would really enjoy helping you.
