    Hi @wenny, welcome to the community! Thank you for sharing with us, you definitely haven't said too much.

    Hi @wenny, and welcome to the community. I am very, very glad you have found us.
    You've had an awful time.
    You haven't said 'too much' :) You are in a safe place here and among friends. We are all; connected in some way by disabilities and medical issues, and very many of our members will have experienced something of what you've gone through - pain is pain, debility is debility, regardless of the condition. So here you will find sympathy and people ready to listen, including myself.
    Don't be shy of telling us about yourself, or of asking us any questions. The better we get to know you, the more easily we are likely to find ways of being useful to you.
    Take care, wenny, and stay in touch,
    Warmest best wishes,
