How sweet ! Thank you for the compliment. I know I don't care for drama and VaBreeze & I both try to make this forum a positive place for all of our members. I'm glad you feel at home. I do as well.
You have made my day **smiling** with your kind thoughts and words. This is so nice to hear and it means a lot. I don't care for the drama either as we have enough stress in our lives trying to deal with these illnesses.
I'm humbled and thank you so much Angel. It's the Members who make this all possible, and those like yourself who make it worthwhile. I'm so glad you are comfortable here. I also feel the same way. :-)
I think that's cuz nobody here has the *energy* to get into drama! I know I have on other non-medical boards or wikipedia or what have you occasionally, and I just feel so drained by it! Not quite like normal CFS lack of energy or anything, just...more like I've taken a 3-hour exam.
I agree, this forum is great. It's helped me start to get to the bottom of what's causing my fibro and chronic fatigue. When I was really sick and in the hospital and wasn't on the form for a while, PlateletGal sent me a PM to check in with me and let me know she cares. This means a lot to me and I feel like this forum is a family.
These are such difficult illnesses to deal with everyday and this is a place where I can come and feel understood and help others feel understood.
That's how I feel, and when I'm really feeling sick and down, I still try to check in to see how everyone is. This cold weather is absolutely tearing me a new one, I will be so happy to see Spring get here.
I have to agree that this forum feels very homely,joined others then unjoined, I haven't really got involved in the others, just observed, but once I had a diagnoses and joined up with you all here I have felt able to get a little more involved, vent my emotions with the journal page, I am able to be open, where I have isolated myself......... when I do speak to buddies I don't want to bore them with my health (so I'll bo0re you lot instead),they don't really understand, so yeah l am in total agreement about this very welcoming, (l myself have even welcomed to get a little more involved) interesting, easy going, nice place to be!!!!
Gladys is still with me bless her,because I live alone when I do have crisis and don;t have any one to turn to, the problem consumes my whole being,not being able to get it out or even just put it to the back of my my mind as others are able because they may work or have families........I had a support worker come to the house 2day who saw my Old Gal, she did agree she's not on tip top form but then did agree she's not too good, but felt I may be overly worried for her........but she has had a better day.....which in turn lightened that cloud a little from over my head....I must go to bed, goodness my swleeping patterns are awful,,,,,,,
Thank you all as well, I feel the same way too. So much helpful information.
God Bless All of you
