So glad you managed to get out. It can really give you a boost, can't it? Sometimes we just have a ride out in the car for an hour and it's lovely to see the countryside and families out and about. Hope you find your ring. xx Moy

Dear Margaret fingers are so tightly crossed for you to get over your infection and to get some help at the hospice with your terrible anxiety/panic attacks. As you know I am the same and I'm hoping you will be able to pass on any valuable information/methods of controlling our "attacks". Please keep in contact and let's hope things will become a little easier?

Best wishes to you and Frank!
