Hi didi62

Sorry you haven’t had any replies to your question as yet, but I hope someone will now see it and reply.  In the meantime the helpline team are at hand if you would like to talk to someone in confidence, plus our general live chat service is also available each Thursday evening between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, where there’s a nurse to answer any of your questions.

Take care,
