Hello Okie and welcome.

I'm 66 and living alone, diagnosed nearly 3 years ago. It would be interesting for us to know what kind of support you get in the US. What's the time difference in Oklahoma ? Is it 5 hours, it would be good to see you in Badgers.

Hi Oakie

I live in Canada in the same time zone as you. I believe there is a 6 hour difference with the UK. I was diagnosed 1.5 years ago at age 65. I have found that even though Canada and the USA have decent forums, this one in the UK seems to be the best i have found. Lots of knowledgeable people are in here and their advice (to others, not me, I am shy and rarely post) has been very useful and can really ease your mind.

Welcome

Welcome to the Forum. I hope you will take the time to check out the Creative Corner. There you will find posts from PWP's which we hope will inspire you to contribute. There is no need for shyness because if you do read it you will find entries across the gamut from the sublime ( Lin, Marcel, Poshbird) our dark side chronicler (Titan) to the ridiculous (me).Jokes, quizzes, poetry, rhymes and songs.

Your Forum needs you, even if it is only to post a comment!

Hi okie06,
Welcome to the community.

One of your hosts here (me) is a Californian as well! I hope you find the information you need here and the support to help you not feel so alone.

Hi Brenda and welcome
I hope you get as much support from the forum as I do
You will find people here at most times of the day or night. Some use the excuse that they can't sleep (like me) others that they live in Australia.
