I find this thread really heartening, (no pun intended), when you can see what a diverse lot we are, but having said that, how we all seem to get on with life, no matter how hard. My respect to all of you.
I've still got a list of ailments, but the good thing is that I seem to be over the cancer, (touch wood), just diabetes, angina, blood pressure, etc to fix now
I'm now on 'maintenance', which involves a 2-monthly injection for 2 years. I've now joined a gym, and Slimming World, and though the progress is slow, I'm getting there. (Fortunately, I've kept my dashing good looks, along with my delusions).
As someone said earlier, maybe its supporting BWFC that's toughened us up
