If this is going to be a more active forum, with regular participants, I would love to join in instead of going back to the great Texas forum all the time. It would be nice to have some friends who have similar medical needs and who also live in Asia, but if it's not going to be a positive, then I'll go back. Just being an American woman, gastric bypass patient, grandmother, dog and horse lover, with lots of time on my hands here in beautiful Singapore is hard enough without having some friends to look to for a daily chat. I sew, read, workout, and am learning to use the computer more, am trying to make myself cook more, and am very bored and lonely, a lot. Please come online and play when you have time. I usually check the board every morning about 9 or 10, after my early morning run with my dog, Smokey.
