Thank you to all the PIA who have given their honest accounts and shared their ups and downs. It does go to show that the grass is not always greener. Good luck to all of you for the future.
I will definately be posting a 'friends wanted' on PIA before I arrive to ensure that I have a few friendly people to point us in the right direction as it does appear that without a sound foundation of support life will be even harder and that is without the other ups and downs along the way. Hopefully a few of you will take pity and reply!!!!:)
It is definitely a good idea to be active on PIA.
Look out for the meets and do shout up if you are feeling friendless,there is often someone out there who will meet up with you :)
