It turned out that newer members weren't able to use the private messages feature of this board. I think I've fixed that now. You should now be able to send new messages using the link to the messages at the top of the page, or a new 'pm' button at bottom of posts.
That being said, if what you're discussing is helpful or validating for other family members, I hope you will continue to discuss it on the full forum rather than one on one so others can benefit from your experience. If you receive a private message that appears to be spam or is problematic in any way, just let me know and I'll take care of it.
