You know I have been wondering if anyone has heard from her. She use to be lurking here quite often. For those of you who don't know her she is the one who create a wonderful Forum for Heppers at Yahoo.
I don't have the site addresses at the moment, but, im sure someone else will posted it.
This site is designed to give people with Hep C information about others who are going through the same (nicknames only).
The most important part of this forum is so you can see the people who have successfully completed treatment (SVR)
which is sustained viral response. Their Genotype's etc.
Well, if you are out there, i hope all is going well with you!
Hi, her web address is http//www.geocities.com/auggieaz/ I agree it isn't the same here not seeing her comments and her caring advice.I emailed her the other day . she responded back .
There seems to be alot of people missing, GIPA, Where are all of you? Jill
Old Hippie Chick made it very clear in her last posting that she was fed up with the nonsense that occurred on this board a few weeks ago. GIPA and others seemed to fade away around the same time. I don't know if there's a connection or not, but it wouldn't surprise me if there was. It's too bad that the foolishness of a two or three people had to drive away others who make such a valuable contribution.
I agree 100%. I don't commen't much on this board, but I do like the knowlege and compassion that the missing one's gave! I do hope they still come to this site and maybe they will see that they are very missed.
Please don't get me wrong I still like what everyone has to offer. Jill
I remember GIPA posting answers not too long ago to tallblonde's question. so she did not fade with OHC.
Yes, OHC is taking a break from the redundant questions and postings, same reason i took a break for months.
when she feels the need to post, i am sure she will. Not everyone has the patience of Indy, bless him.
One that I saw TWICE within the same week: Pegasys vs Pegintron ?
If the person would have scrolled down a few posts, he/she would have had the answer !
" How to inject" subject, 2 0r 3 questions in less than two weeks.
It might help it Med Help would have a notation about the limited number of space for questions we have here, with a suggestion to scroll through the posts to ensure the question is not already answered. That might cut down on repeated subjects. Also, instruct posters on how to access old questions previously posted.
I see some Nov. questions show up sometimes and I have no idea how it was accessed. everytime I go to archives, all i get is the doctor/patient questions, not the pt/pt.
i think it's fine for a person to ask any question they feel they need answered about thier hepc. new people are not familar with what we have talked about in lenghth before. or how and when to post "correctly". we can guide them in the right direction to get there answers. if it was talked about before just point them to that post. if you don't want to respond don't, someone will help them. we were all new with all the same questions at one time and people like indiana would go through alot of work writing down related web sites and lots of information over and over again all the time. people like him is what makes this board really great. we should all chip in and help the new people feel welcomed and informed and loved. how soon we forget how that was to be new to all this. jumping down peoples throughts is ridiculous for a board of this nature. i don't buy the riba rage thing. it's just used as an excuse to be a jerk. some people just like to get a rise out of people. they like the attention. those are the ones we need to ignor and not give attention to there tantrums or childishness, and certainly not stoop to thier level. let a couple people try to correct them in kindness and then move on. These are the types of things that could make this a great place to be. i had been gone through alot of the problems apparently but it would have bummed me out and i am sad that certain people arn't around any more. i hope they return. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AS WE BLESS OTHERS, SANDI
Another AMEN to your post!!!! I got tired of all that **** a few weeks back and I stayed away some too. But I agree about the humor and we need all the laughs we can get. I have missed OHC very much. I hope she will pop in at anytime. She is a wonderful person, but I realize she has to care for her daughter as well. Like someone said....come back girl, we miss you and your caring for us all. Much love to OHC. We love ya girl, Cindee
Dallas- I think you are wrong. MOST of us here do care about your opinion and what you think and I agree with you I miss alot of the oldies too. I know that when your done with tx most people want be done with it and get away from here. But we can still miss them and hope they are doing well.
I was disappointed with this site also and left for a while but missed the people here who have become "family" to me. I don't post alot anymore and ignore the post that are rude or negative.
Glad to hear Auggie is doing well I miss her alot also.
LvdByGod- This is my second time on tx and Riba Rage DOES exist. Not that it is an excuse to be rude. But it IS VERY MUCH REAL.
please read my new post. i think we wrote in at the same time. please understand,what i meant by, "i don't buy the riba rage thing", was not that i don't believe in riba rage but that it shouldn't be used as an excuse to blast someone out of the water.
boy, it's hard to stay out of trouble around here, perhaps too hard!!! "THAT'S WHAT I'M TALK'N ABOUT"
I came here for the first time in July of last year, searching for answers to hundred questions before considering TX....The people here helped me make my decision to treat NOW.......I was afraid to come here and read sometimes ( i never posted alot).... I was in fear of all the sides etc. I got alot of very important information. My GI was impresed with me........I told him about this wonderful site........i asked him to go take a look......maybe even HE could learn something :) I never really felt that i was as sick as alot of you guys in here.......
Galen got me really annonyed once......she more or less told me to take a hike and get things in my life in order.....and stop reading too much into everything that was said here that these people are sick in here....or something to that affect......my feelings were so hurt.....i felt like i was really kicked hard.......but, she was right and i told her......i spent too much time here......and it was scarey......but, i needed to know all the good and bad of tx......so, she didnt scare me away.....BUT, things have really changed here.....its more like an instant message chat room thingy now......not really so informative as before.......and yes, the funny things were kool......but, it was just much too much.....we are all adults....and we should not judge people, by how they need to be heard......God Bless everyone here.......i love each and everyone of u......and NO one really knows me......i love the sharing and most of all the support that we give each other through thick and thin......Have a wonderful week......I'm doing #7/48 tomorrow night.........Love ME
i think you misunderstood me. i've had riba rage too(i've been on tx for almost 6 months now),but it dosen't give me an excuss to be a jerk. that's all i'm saying. (not that i haven't struggled with the temptation to either).
The reason i posted this was to express my feelings about being mean to each other in here, which apparently has been going on. my post wasn't directed at any one individual, it was just a thought for anyone who may be tempted, or may not have the common sence to refrain from this stuff.
i think a little love can go a far way. i also believe that kindness and sensitivity is possible for those on tx. there is a time to correct and a time to let go. if someone comes on and says they feel like killing themselves it may not be the best time to say, "hey, we talked about this last week, get on board with the flow here". then again if some one person continues to do it day after day, then perhaps we can find a kind or funny way to address the problem. blueskies i hope we're ok? thanks for helping me clear this up. the last thing i would want is to hurt anyone. GOD BLESS, sandi
I would like to apologize to anyone on this board that I have offended because if I have...that is so against my nature. After reading the posts yesterday...I almost decided to not come back because if I honestly have nothing to offer the board then I feel my time is wasted. Dallas's post was hard for me to gulp down last night as I am thinking if she needed someone so bad that day...Awww I could have talked to her all day and all night if needed but obviously she didn't feel that. And then to read that some of the old timers are staying away and then so many of you just don't want to post...Well, again I'm soooo sorry. I guess we all have our reasons for coming even if maybe a band aid just to get through the day but I never realized how many are going through so many hard times. Yucca..just by mentioning that her husband is a recovering alcoholic and yes now I get it,,,all you want is to come here where its not acceptable. There is so many drug addiction, alcohol etc and I guess I have never had any of that in my life. My life has always been story book wonderful so now I think I do know why my husband and I have this disease...Because I have always wanted to know but yes now I know...its because we havent experienced anything bad at all. I really do need this board now so please bear with me if I have been insensitive to anyone. Yes I do remember OHC as I came on to the board in passing saw her postings and she seems like a very nice lady. I hope many more people will post as I would like to meet you. Love, Sally
YIPPY I AM SO GLAD WE ARE COOL. when i reread my post it did sound confusing. sorry. RIBA RAGE IS REAL NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. i just didn't know if it is appropriate to use it as an excuss to be mean. hey, you mean alot to me. i have seen you on this board for a long time.
p.s. i have never used a juicer, is there another lvdbyGod? love ya, sandi
i am also the one who used to use all caps. someone said they felt i was too obnioxious with all caps so to keep the peace i dropped some of the caps. but, it's still me. i've been on board here for way over a year now. in the old and moldy days. have a great week blueskies!!!
Hi ya Gang....I heard from OHC tonite. She is well and spending time with her family. Hope everyone is doing good. HUGS @ KISSES to ALL, Cindee ps It's almost Valentine's Day!!!!! "Love is in the air........"okay I'll stop singing, I'm leaving that to KIM!!!!
