I've been here at PB very intermittanty for the last several years (not regularly since 2000 +/- a year or two).
In any case, you have no idea how good it sounds to hear that you've been able to find some degree of relief! I hope you find more!
I just want to thank you for all of the help, advice, insight, and encouragement that you've been able & willing to offer to me (not to mention to others) over those years - particularly since I know that your path has not been an easy one.
I hope that you know how helpful you've been to the rest of us, here at PB over the years! Thanks for taking the time to help me too, I've always valued your feedback, and sincerely appreciated your willingness to make the effort to share your knowledge! You're a good man. Thanks again.
