Carol Preston:

So let's start with, Neal, If you had one tip to pass along to other patients what, would you say?  

Sherry, how about you? What's a tip that you can pass along? 

I just want to add we can't expect people to understand exactly what we're going through, but hopefully the people we do hang out with can say things like, listen, I can't imagine what you're going through but I can drive you.  I can fix a meal for you.  I can take a walk with you.  I can go to the gym with you.  We can go to a movie together.  Boy, those are all the things that have helped me in my life and I suspect all of yours as well.   

So let's round this out with Sue and Cathy with your tips for the day.  Sue?  

Carol Preston:
