Four of the five boards that I check on daily relate to the autoimmune disorder that my wife has - ITP. At first she went to one for information and support, and then I began to post - in support of her and others, and then I learned that I liked the social aspect of discussion boards. And I felt that I liked cheering folks up. Once in a while, I needed cheering up.

Until then, I had never been on any discussion board, and didn't even like chatting. Still don't like chatting.

Marge is the love of my life.
