    Just for the old-timers here who might remember me....

    I underwent an unrelated donor bone marrow transplant in the summer of 2008 for relapsed acute leukemia (which first hit me in 2006), and posted about it at that time. I had been a member here for years with FM symptoms. Leukemia kind of eclipsed any FM stuff for me, as I had a bigger demon to fight. But I had my two-year anniversary July 12th, and all is well on that front---life is totally normal for me, and has been for months. I work (overtime, even), play and live life as normal. I still have some extremity tingling---which may be that old FM rearing its head, or the severity of the chemo (which for a BM transplant is about as strong as you can get) but entirely tolerable in the face of getting to live longer. No complaints from me!

    I recognize quite a few names still, and hope nothing but better health for all, and more advances in FM/CFS treatment and care to come---soon.

    I just thought I'd check in so those who remember me would know I'm alive and kicking so far!

    Take care,
