    You have been thru so much!!
    I just wondered if you remember all of this without looking it up?
    When I went to new doc in Jan. they couldn’t believe I could remember everything I had taken, dates of m/c’s, etc just off the top of my head. People just don’t understand these things are imprinted in you!!
