Anyone live in Syracuse?

Hi.

I just found this site today. Very exciting.

I was diagnosed about 6 months ago. It was a huge relief because I thought I was going crazy. I have an explanation for how I've felt for years.

I've stayed away from local support groups because the attitude is very negative. "How bad my life is"...

These forums look interesting and helpful.
