B, Sorry it has taken so long to reply, i think I might have the alerts turned off, or my email is blocking them.

I'll PM you my email address.

EDIT: Cant find the options for PM - email is chris.clifford84 [at]

Hi Chris.

I've put instructions for PMs below whhich I hope helps.

As for my comment... I was taken by the way you covered a lot of ground and put accross the points for so many people from the HD at risker to children to wife/husbands. This, in particular, struck a chord for me:

'With regards to your wife, unfortunately, whether we like it or not, our wives are going through this with us. It's really crap, but you will be stronger together. Talk to her, support her, allow her to support you too. I think from the position you are now that it is going to be hard either way, whether you decide to test or not.'

Private Messages (PMs) are defaulted to disabled option so that Members get the choice whether or not to receive PMs.

If you would like to enable PMs, but are not sure how this is done, here is a basic guide:

First of all ensure you are logged in.

Now click on User Control Panel on the purple bar to the top left of your screen.

Now click on Edit Options

Scroll down the screen and you should come across a section on
Private Messages

In the Private Messages Section click on the
Enable Messages tick box. There is also a tick box further down should you wish to receive an e-mail notification telling you there is a message waiting.
I tried.
