I have enjoyed the information sharing and support. There seems to be a wide variety of health issues but D is the most discouraging thing people seem to be dealing with and pain.
It's good to find somewhere with all the information I needed in one place. It helped me enormously when I was struggling to get the help I needed from my doctor.
There is a wealth of information on your site and I found it particularly helpful to read the stories from people who I know went through the same thing as me.
I've found the site very informative and it helped me to better understand my condition just after I'd been diagnosed.
