I'll reply for myself as well as "cheerful" (John). John first joined KA in 2000 - the year he was diagnosed. Since 1996, after a lower back injury, he never got better but has always kept his sense of humour. John's AS progressed very quickly and has only gotten worse yet he keeps cracking jokes and keeping a smile on both our faces and keeps people laughing - therefore his username "cheerful". Since I'm his "better" half - I'm "mrscheerful"!
