I was watching the news last night and they mentioned a website (www.patientslikeme.com) which was started by two brothers who lost their brother to ALS. I visited the website today and found it to be a gem for many people who have poorly understood illnesses. (Many to choose from.)

I was hoping that they would have a category for Adult Onset Asthma (especially for those that have found standard treatment to be ineffective). In any event that category did not exist. (I wanted to share what helped me. I am doing perty OK.......it is all relative......);)

I hope this post help somebody here at Tug.....go to www.patientslikeme.com

Merry Christmas!:D
Oh and I must share that the last week of Jan. 2009, I will be staying in a 2 bedroom at Troon, Four Seasons (traded a banked week at Falcon Point, Avon,CO durring the II Flextime.......Also got Pinion Pt Hyatt, 1 bedroom Sedona, AZ for third week of Jan. 2009.....traded an AC in the II Flextime........(This will be my first stay at a Four Season or Hyatt timeshare. I've stayed at several Marriott's.....so......I'm excited.....and the price was so right.)

Of course, I am semiretired and able to work the flextime inventory........just want others to be encouraged as to what is possible.
