Welcome to the forum and glad to hear you are in excellent health.
We have a good number of straight forum members so you are not alone here.

So diagnosed in the late 90's than you as I have seen how vastly things have changed over the years with treatment options, recommendations and expectations communicated to us over the years.

What treatment are you currently taking?

Any good retirement plans? Travel?

Anyhow, welcome and hope to chat more.
