Thanks Shyshark...I appreciate your note and the fact that you pointed out how gender is a non-issue when you are a survivor...I just wanted to be respectful of the rules and other people's feelings about this being a 'safe' place to share and connect.

I went to the Chat icon by FAQ on the top toolbar and that is where I was directed to Friends and Family.

I will be there for a bit this evening.

Again, thanks for the welcome!
