I answered this question on the other thread.

We've all been there don't sweat it. Heck after 5 years there are still a ton of functions I dont know how to use - just recently found out how to change my password even, pretty basic stuff LOL.

How do you insert a picture into the post?  I've seen those little pix ballons but can't figure out how to add one.

LOL don't ask me - I didn't realize until recently what people even meant about blocking PMs.......I guess someday I should look around at all the functions but sometimes that seems so much like actual WORK....

VeggieDip a member from a long time back used to be able to do that adding pictures and colored text and stuff.  I'd assume you have to insert the html tags or something but I have no clue.

Interesting question though, I was happy just to learn how to ♥ ♥ ♥ last month ;)

Hoping somebody knows how but guessing we'd all go crazy doing it and use up all the bandwidth in an hour....ah obsession....... ;)

I think you can only insert photos when you post the original question.  I'm not sure but I believe MH reviews photos before they put them up in a thread.

Come to think of it they are usually on the first post.  I'd like to be able to stick them in garden posts but I'll get over that.  I don't know how to make the hearts.

I lost minimal amount of hair.  No one can even tell.  I did color it as usual during tx, but I only washed it 2-3 times a week.  That sounds worse than is really is because the Riba dries you out so bad, your body may not produce oils like usual.  I found a nice dry shampoo to keep it looking fresh.  

Sometimes my scalp got sore-like when you have a ponytail in too long. But the hair loss was minimal. Having said that....I still have 3 weeks left, now my hair will probably all fall out.  But that'll be ok too....at least I'm UND (and been wanting to try a red wig)

I want to know how to do the hearts, too.  Can we get a lesson?

The easiest way to do the hearts is copy and paste 'em.

I've lost about half my hair but it's so puffy it's hard for other people to tell.

I've started losing my hair, but I have a lot of it, so don't expect to go bald. I've heard others say nobody else noticed. I only know because I'm cleaning it out of the tub and off the bathroom floor!  Losing most of it is pretty rare.
