42. So glad you're back..
Edited on Sat May-27-06 10:50 PM by northamericancitizen
Your words were OK. Hey, it's a discussion board and we are all responding too fast too often. Mind you, I am usually doing the opposite: taking to much time to write my opinion. I weight every words, check spelling, signification etc.

You could very well call me a compulsive perfectionist when it comes to writing. lol

In my opinion your posts even thou a bit too black and white, did not come out as medical opinion. You stated clearly at the beginning that you had (have) a similar problem in life.

Nice to meet you


edit for spelling
