I appear to be older than most members (late 50's) and Canadian. I have a thyroid weight problem (loss of thyroid gland due to cancer, so am on lifetime meds) and a propensity to weight gain.
Do I have any kindred spirits out there? Any Canadians? Not that I don't want worldwide friends, but could use someone closer in region (western Canada), age, culture. I hope I am not coming off as rude, just looking for a friend or two closer to home.
I don't think it's unreasonable or rude to look for someone with similar attributes as yours. You're looking for support and that comes through relation. I think it's good to reach out, that's why I am here too. I'm sure that you will several people in your region! Best of luck to you!
