Hi Diane, You said you a member of a sport group? Tell me more. Do you have a TBI or are care giver as such? I can't remember. That can be difficult starting over. I rest then go back at it. I am trying Hypnosis to relax and shut down. We will see. Oh, yes I have a Cavlier King Charles Spaniel, 12lbs. bamer Skipper. :) SKR
