Thanks, Stephen, much appreciated. So... how active is A.U.? I'm on at least one, maybe 2-3 other similar sites, but only one of them is really active to any degree. It's my hope that A.U. is more active.
Just to let you know I'm alive, it was a close thing a few times and I've been in hospital for a few weeks the place seems to be much better run now, i heard in the last year or so they had a big overhaul of how it was run. I'm pleased they have changed it and not just ticked a few boxes.
I'm still not very well but at the moment I'm hanging on. I have to say the staff were amazing. My brain hasn't been very switched on for a while and I only realized yesterday that I've missed 5 weeks of my life and I hadn't noticed. Still in grateful to be here and at some point will hopefully be well enough to read through some of the things on here that I've missed.
