 I dont know if it is JUST me or if others feel the way I do but here goes......( If I am wrong plz do TELL me ... 
 
There seems to be a different sense of feeling here in our A/P forum as of late IMHO
 
This is a place to come to for care sharing and for empathy ........SUPPORT
I am so proud of the members that DO read each thread ( or most of them ) and DO give input
 
I do feel that not many KNOW the roles of a moderator and that WE are just ppl like you .
Some sicker and with other DD but still here to get support and caring as well as vent
It is NOT the amount of edits or deletes that make us who we are
It is the hours of dedication to the site
Granted I have been off alot lately due to surgury but I am always with each and everyone one of you in spirit
 
Moderators can give their opinions as do members
BASICALLY we are just members but we volunteer to help the site run smoothly from spammers and the likes of them
WE and anyone who HAS the want to be a moderator went thru the channels
admin@healingwell.com and asked for the position
 
ANYONE is able to do this
 
You must know the rules and guidlines and abide by them whether it is a friend of yours or not .........
 
EACH moderator as each member has their way and their opinions so we dont always agree that does not mean we are at a fighting stage we are just giving our opinion ya know
 
Please lets get back to helping one another and supporting one another
It is the best way for the forum to run smoothly
Anyone can put in to be a moderator
 
SOMETIMES we need threads with laughter in them ( best medicine) ......
Other times it is prayers for our fellow family members .........
 
WE have great moderators now and I know for one I would love to see some more fun threads about anxiety and
Also if you can remember that IF you have 4 or 5 questions put them in one thread not all different ones
'This way your whole post can be answered...........
nono
I with all my heart promise you I am not trying to be mean to anyone,,,,,,,,
I would just love to see "OUR FAMILY" back 
 
 
 
Take care all and
 
Have a great evening.............LYN 

** THis is not meant rudely or to be taken out of context.....

Not my intention at all

I just want to see everyone Happier and having better days

As well as understanding a moderators role in HW..........LYN yeah

It has not been just today my friend......

There seems to have been a misconception about what Moderators do and I wanted to clear that up
WE are sick and volunteers and no better than ANY of you
As well anyone can apply for the poosition

Plus IMHO I do feel there is some slight tension going on

I MAY BE WRONG
I have been many times before lol

Thanks B................LYN

I also must have missed something.  I am a new member only been religiously viewing and occassionally posting for the past month or so, but I want to tell you that the moderators have been great to me and to others as I have seen.  I understand that we all deal with the same issue albeit with different feelings and symptoms.  The posts that have been edited, IMHO were done so correctly.
Just my two cents.

Dear Lyn and Members,

WE have been in a bit of a downward spiral and I have been dragging some of the fun threads to the top but often they sink like an anchor as few people post the positives,  the ones that do are the same members and they are healing.

I would really like to see members look to see if there is already a thread on the topic they are starting as we have many duplicates. 

Healing Well says it all, this forum is about healing from your anxiety and panic.  All the members are important and in fairness to everyone I agree with Lyn, put all of your questions into your one thread for the day. If you have a new topic then start a new thread.  

As moderators we are here for you and you have my email so feel free to use it should you want to contact me.

WE are a peer support group so please notice members that only get 1 or 2 answers to their questions and give them some support.

I am very attached to this forum and I support all of you so let's make this about healing and learning to cope with our anxieties.

Gentle Hugs to each of you,

Kitt

I have to agree that I too have noticed a change here. I have even emailed mods to question some of the posts. This is an anxiety/panic disorder board where folks come for support. We are not doctors or physichiatrists we can only share what helped us. But sometimes some posts get SO HEAVY and quite honestly frightening to me that I feel for myself at least, that its best I not answer. I love the mods on this board so much, they are very compassionate people with much love to share even while they are going thru life trials of their own. But sometimes for my own sanity I have to avoid these heavier posts. JMHO

Much love and appreciation to the mods.

Blessings to all,

Thanks Lyn for your understanding. I thought I was the only one with these concerns, it helps to know that I wasn't the only one seeing it. How are you feeling my friend? Hopefully recovering well from the surgery. Hoping the CD, Fibro, and Pg are behaving themselves.

Hugs to you my friend,

I am doing good
