Just wanted to say good morning to all my new friends. I can’t wait to sign in and read about your day and how you all are feeling. It is a comfort knowing that there are others that feel like me!! You are all amazing and keep your chins up high. Cheers :slight_smile:


I'm a late in saying good morning but maybe not too bad because you are half way round the world... I've been a little out of it the last few days so I missed your nice greeting. I hope you are doing okay today and feeling better. I don't know if you are following the Olympics but your Womens Swim Team already won a Gold Medal. Is Australia excited for the Olympics? Who are the big hopefuls? Sometimes it's nice to talk about other things than Chiari. : )


Hi Wendy, Australia loves any kind of sport even if it watching grass grow, we would make a sport out of that!!! I love watching the Olympics but it starts at 8.30pm and goes ALL night until 9.30am. So I don’t get to watch much!!! I come from a small town called Ballarat in Victoria Aus, where are you from, I’ll google it!!! Take care Wendy, Stacey :slight_smile:


Too funny. I live in Massachusetts and we are a very blessed sports obsessed state. Home to the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution. We are spoiled. There are alot of complaints about the Olympic coverage here. In the internet age everyone wants everything right away. I live in a very small town an hour from Boston and 45 min from Cape Cod. So we have the best of both worlds. Mass is so small if you blink your in another state. Hope you have a great day Down Under. How cliche. Do you hate it when people say that?



I'm not sure what time it is there in Australia? Here in South Philadelphia it's 5:44 am! I'm recently retired, due to post concussion and Chiari symptoms, but still wake up a about 4am most days. I'm hoping that today finds you feeling as good as possible. I'm happy that you've joined the group and look foward to getting to know you:)
