Good Morning. I have just joined this portion of what the Mayo Group offers. I have some of your books and have found them to be immensely helpful – they have the added benefit of being publications which are respected by my doctors. I am looking forward to having somewhere to come when things are particularly “bad”. While I have friends and family (especially my daughter) for support, I was raised to offer up my pains and mental darkness to God, and not seek help. Even now, in my seventieth decade, I find writing this little anonymous paragraph to be very difficult. Thank you all for being here, and for the patience I am afraid you will be called upon to extend to me as we go along……..
