Thank all who who replied to my thread - very supportive I do feel very fortunate to be in contact with such special people who have all like me had their lives re-arranged by this Altz infliction. Perhaps we are special people, cosidered capable of coping and learning what is shielded from humanity in generel, who knows? To conclude my ramblings, I'll describe my latest encounter with love of a different kind. 11am at the Milnrow cenotaph, a gathering of about 500 people. I must have been standing too long as I collapsed on a young lady standing next to me.Her quiet reaction,along with a few other carng people carefully found me somewhere to sit and get my bearings.The young lady inquired where I lived and insisted on sorting me out when she heard that I live on my own,I protested but to no avail. It was lovely holding her arm-loving and caring there'still a lot in the world.
