Hey Vancouver guy,
Lean on me, also...It is so easy to isolate yourself. My father died of Esophageal Anenocarcenoma...brought on by Barretts disease...I am not comparing my feelings equally with you, just trying to say if you need to talk or lean on anyone, this forum is the place for you.
You might want to look up the site that Oluwa found for you...hopefully you will be able to meet someone face to face.
I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.......Robert Frost
