Welcome to the forum tom60. We haven't quite reached 30,000 yet but will soon get there. Some members have become inactive, some like to visit and read without contributing and others post regularly. You will soon get to know the ones who post most often.

thank you for the welcome , sorry I must have read the numbers wrong I thought 17000 new members was a lot in 2 years something like just over 20 new members per day , the site must keep you very busy welcoming all those new people , but sad to see so many with breathing problems , I'm sure I will so get to know people

Welcome Tom - I am sure you will find this website helpful .

Some times it’s difficult to give advice in a reply for various reasons but don’t let this put you off asking . There are usually others who have or have had the same particular problem who will help you even if it’s only a word of sympathy or encouragement.

You have made a good start to the New Year by joining us.
