Hi everyone....
« on: October 25, 2009, 04:48:59 PM »
Just writing to introduce myself. I've been reading the forums for what seems like a very long time and finally got verified today thanks to Tim, who probably thinks i'm a dumb blonde  ::) 

I was diagnosed 4 years ago,  just a couple of months after infection and not on meds yet. When i've worked out how to i'll post my numbers in my profile!

I feel like I know most of you and look forward to you getting to know me!

Welcome to the forums Leese!  Just go to the profile tab at the top of the page and I think the link you want is profile information.  Not sure though, I've only been frequenting the forums for four years... :D

Sure someone will steer you correctly if I am wrong.
