I was amazed by the response of welcoming to that first post "Just Say Hello" - (even though it ended up being an ad of some sort - with horrible grammer at that - gasp)....so I have been reading the boards for the last couple of weeks (almost wrote coupala - but didn't want to offend any spelling junkies) and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Shannon, but go by Shanno. I was diagnosed August of '08 and went on the Ping on March 17 2010.
So, "Hi everyone". :)
