I have no idea how I found this forum and I have participated "A Bit" but it was only tonight that I realized how isolated I have been for 45 years and how wonderful/scarey.cool/freaky it is to see all the emotions i have experienced laid out in the open and shared in a sa=fe environment with people who really truly can relate and have been through trials and horrors much worse than mine.
Thanks to whomever started this and to all who contribute.

Hi there
You are so right, I too found this forum only a week ago. I have learnt more in the last week, than in the last 50yrs! I have found that there are so many wonderful people like me out there who care and who are only a keyboard away.
I understand exactly what you mean, i have never shared anything about my eye with anyone before now. It feels like a big weight has been lifted I'm sure you feel the same.

So happy to be here and glad you found here too!
