Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Esp since this has been known for 9 years ... good to have further confirmation, though I'd much rather the money is spent on exploring treatment options
