Hi Stanley,

I know you meant well, but as someone who was not diagnosed pre-1996, you should not be posting in this forum.

Please make sure you read the Welcome threads that appear in some of the sub-forums. Some forums have criteria for posting that is different to other forums. The Welcome thread for this forum is
here; please read it.

Thank you for your cooperation.
