    Default Newbie here .... kind of.

    Hello,
    I just found this site recently, but this is my first posting. I'm a 18 month leaker just recently diagnosed (err correctly diagnosed anyway). Seems like a lot of good information here, which is how I found this place! I need to figure out what to do next and I just don't know where to get reliable information anymore! I mean my doctor(s's) have kinda sent me from one place to another and aren't sure what to do with me. I feel like a modern day lepper, I am alone?
    I have insomnia, I mean a headache, I mean my headache gives me insomnia and I should go now before I stop making any sense!
    Hope to meet others soon!
