    Diagnosed age 20, now 52. What's the purpose of your question, though, if I may ask?

    Aged 11, a couple of weeks before my birthday. According to MS Excel it's 10,000 days since I was diagnosed, or 10,000 days since Bruno got beat by Tyson. It doesn't mean anything, see if I can clock another 10k, no it's not a marathon, well it is in a way :)
