Thanks for the info Birdbloke - looks like your diagnosis is correct
JP - It's wonderful to post here again - I really appreciate the heads up. But I have been browsing the forum regularly.
Things in Jordan pretty well (can't complain). One friend of mine has been a strict vegan for a couple of years now, which is amazing really! Four of my friends are now vegetarian, and that's even more mind-boggling because now I can sit in public with a group of people and not have any carcasses on the table
My sister has also gone full veggie now. So I guess things have been moving forward. I keep my activist muscles going - one discussion at a time, and I try to be a good example of physical (and mental - when I can afford it) health.
