Atta Girls to So.CA group

Ladies, I'm proud of you! Lynn has remembered that the BEBRF is made up of patient volunteers who support each other. If a group doesn't exist where you live, the answer is to start one with the help of the Foundation and its bulletin board. It's very empowering. Those of us who are Area Reps, State Coodinators or District Directors can't cover all the areas where there are patients. It's impossible. However, the more people who are willing to meet with even 2 or 3 other patients, the more patients there will be who get some support. Everyone doesn't get to cry their hearts out to the BB or to another person who understands as we do. Bring hope to someone else. Don't act as if the Foundation doesn't care. Create a support group if you can.
Nilda

Hey Nilda, Were you one of the people that said that I could pick on you? Naw-but I'll do it anyway.
Lynn (with two n's) is a guy.

Shirley in AR. I just had to say it and protect Lynn's masculinity.

Hey, don't knock it -- I was the only guy in my HS graduating class to get an invitation (gold-embossed!) to enroll in the Texas State College for Women! Somehow I don't think they would have really let me in.

Way to go, Lynn. Gosh, you should have at least tried to get in.
Just think of the opportunities.

Sorry if you wanted to remain incognito.

Shirley in AR.

Lynn,
When I was in High School I used to get information from most of the branches of armed serviced wanting me to sign up with them. I used to get a kick out of it.

It's a great name. One of my best friends and neighbor growing up (starting in first grade!) is a male named "Lynn". Another friend (girl named Terri) got many recruitment offers from the armed services. (The Women's college probably can't discriminate now and would have to admit you now :-)))
By the way, I have even heard of men named "Shirley" !!
Cynthia in IL where it is very windy today and cooling off.

In HS, I also had a buddy next door named Shirley. He had "Shirts" for a nickname.

It never occurred to me, growing up, that my name had any gender connected to it, since I was named after another man, a boyhood friend of my Father's, and I also knew several girls named Lynn (or Lynne). Oh, well.
