Hello to all of my Healingwell Family! I wanted to mention somehting and hope I don't hurt any feelings. Belive me I am not pointing fingers ~~because I would have 4 coming right back at me! I noticed that at times we get caught up in our chats and have a tendency to forget as a newbie comes on. One came on yesterday and asked a question and no one answered (including me~~shame on myself!). As she was going to sign off I was able to catch her~~Thank goodness! now I know I am posting this in Depression BUT I feel that it should be in General to every room. Again~~not trying to step on any toes~~just made an observation to which I fould myself guilty as well~~I am open for any feed back~~good or bad~~LOL~~Thank you all so much for being there for me and lets all go out and support our new ones as they come into our "Family"~~Thank You!! Sandee

yeah  Hey, Sandee,
I haven't been around much lately, off licking my wounds, but I am as guilty as the rest. There have been times that I very few replies and it bothers me, however, I have turned my thinking on to others rather than myself. Everyone needs attention and if they come to the group and have issues and don't have anyone to unload to, we are basically responsible for what happens to them. So, my friend, I take as much blame so give me one of your fingers, (just not the middle one)!

Sandee, you make an excellent point. I know I am not always successful but I try to acknowledge everyone who comes into the room, whether they are new or not. I have NEVER seen you ignore anyone so I don't think you deserve a finger, not a whole one anyway! lol

See you soon friend

Hi Sandee,

What a nice thing to say. I joined in July on the Migraine Forum and in the last couple of weeks have been spending more time here. I have found the people in both to be very nice and welcoming. It's been a tough summer for me and the support I've felt from the people here has been tremendous.

Thanks for looking out for us "newbies".
