    Hi, everyone

    I am sorry, I stuck it out as long as I could hoping that the email digests would make navigating this board quicker and easier. The new email digest format is totally different than the old one and it takes just as long to read and post as dealing with the board directly.

    I find I must manage my time better, I will no longer be posting here or reading posts here with any regularity.

    You can always find me on the regular Pain Management Board. I think that will be the only board I will read and post on regularly.

    My best to everyone.

    Take care, Annette
