Although it's not curable, it isn't terminal and that is something I'm thankful for each day. It's been tough but leaving my old life behind and reinventing myself for the future is getting easier and clearer each day.
I know it's a mismatch of poor quality phone pics but I really appreciate your input folks. I'm glad my favourite (the Tort) is getting a little love, it's a bit of a love it or hate it look that one.
Glad to hear you can still play. All the best to ya!
