I just wanted to say thanks for your help a few weeks ago, I have been trying to do some of the things you said and they have been very helpful... I like the practical stuff (such as using my headphones to listen to music in the night) and also thanks for letting me photograph the board when you were talking. I went home and wrote it up and its been helpful to read back. Personally I don’t know how you do that job without people turning into one big amorphous person crying but it didn’t feel like you treated me that way and I am very grateful for your help.
