I've had WED/RLS since I was a teenager.  I'm now 70 years old.  About 12 years ago I read about and joined a local WED/RLS Support Group.  About 4 years later I was asked by the group's leader to take over for her while she changed gears into the outreach aspect of WED/RLS.  I enjoyed lead the group because of the appreciation shown by fellow sufferers for the information and empathy I could provide.  I answer calls from desperate sufferers and those looking for relief for friends or family. I really appreciate the new format of the WED Foundation website.  Thanks and keep up the great work. ~ Al Ruff, South Puget Sound WED/RLS Support Group
