Thanks everyone! It feels a bit strange not having any pills to take this morning but I guess I'll get use to it.
Just been relaxing in this glorious autumn weather as Ariel pointed out. A long sunset walk on the beach yesterday which I wouldn't have had the Inclination or energy for 6 months ago.
But off to see a friend's son's band release their new single tonight. Personally I would have been mortified if my parents tried to attend something like that but they seem relaxed about it......or maybe they are just resigned to the fact we'll sneak in anyway!

GAJ, have a lovely evening, enjoyed the song and the sentiment behind it is pretty emotional
I bet you are pleased to not be rattling when you walk anymore! (I think it was you said that?)
I hope everything will be coming up roses for you.........

I don’t post on here much and I regret I haven’t contributed more to the forum but I periodically check the forum and I've always admired your posts Gaj. You are an awesome contributor of information and I have so much respect for you and others, along with our hero Dr Freeman, who give so much time and effort to help people, big cheers to you.
And that song is just brilliant too

Congratulations Gaj, I've really enjoyed your posts. I got to EOT at the end of April and am also feeling a bit strange without my evening tablets. After 24 weeks they had become part of the daily ritual (apart from the times I got settled into bed and had to get up again because I'd forgotten to take them). Good luck with the next bit.
