So glad you had joined! Yes, it was informative and I think of you all when I am challenged. We are not alone is so clear when you are joined by so many others on a conference line. I hope it is continued regularly this time.

Hi Aaron, I didn't think you had joined since I didn't hear you chime in, although I was silent for the duration as there were new participants joining. Topics addressed: balance, fatigue, sexual dysfunction; communicating with spouse/partner, constipation, vitamin D, diet, brain fog, incontinence, bladder/bowel urgency, catheter use, ....

Equinney, help me out here. : )

I'm really frustrated with myself, Steve. I very much wanted to participate on this call. Do you know if there is a recording of it, by chance?

Unfortunately not as there was a disclaimer from the moderator at the beginning stating that the conference call was considered a private affair since trust and privacy are essential to open communication.

But don't worry. I understand that they will keep the momentum going this time around. It may not be long until another call is scheduled.

I think you covered the most of it. I had not planned on talking much, but that changed when my wife gave me a list of things to ask about. I didn’t ask all of them or would have been a 3 hour call I’m afraid. Yes, he did say we would be doing it again soon, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Aaron, I hate you missed it.

If you didn’t figure it out, yes I’m Eric from Arkansas.

I'm glad you had a chance to talk. I've had the past oppurtunity to do my own show which was possibly why it wasn't renewed. : )
