MN is nice, 7 degrees and the wind is blowing..........
You go above and beyond so no apologies necessary..........make sure you post your blog link in the profile.
I looked at it and you have done and awesome job...........outstanding. You have talent and you are blessed.
We have many other mods and hopefully they will be back with us soon. They are all missed greatly.
Co-Moderator, Anxiety and Panic Forum
Hope you get back to yourself again soon as I know how awful a drug reaction can be..........Praying for you
I talked to Lyn this A.M. and she sounds like she is doing better and hoping to be back with us soon. I told her there were messages and prayers on the boards for her.

Good advice Nanners............Sam you get the chores done and make sure you eat healthy and get your rest. You have a huge load on your shoulders.
I am usually around........probably to much on some days but we will get it done.
I too will be cutting back some as 8-10 hours a day is overkill and I need to stop this.
The members are very capable of helping each other.
I know you are feeling 100% right now but remember to take care of you as I want you to stay feeling well and healthy.
You know I support and care deeply for you and I am not worrying about you as I know you have it under control.........I am very proud of you.
Hugs to allKitt
Good questions. You are right, this is a mental health disorder forum and things do not always run smooth as the sx and behaviors are individual for each person and the topics are many. We deal with all types of anxiety disorders and there are many from OCD to Health Anxiety. From GAD to Personality disorders.
I have the GERD forum and most of the posts are fine as everyone is about GERD. The emotions don't run as high.
Without breaking any confidentialities I can tell you that the moderators do discuss some of these posts in detail before decisions are being made. Also when in doubt we do contact the administrator.
Perhaps one of the other mods can help explain it better.
The moderators of the A & P forum strive to keep the forum up and running as smoothly as we can, we try to keep the forum safe for all and if problems arise we do not make decisions lightly.
Often some of our mods are on line 8-10 hours a day and moderating other forums too.
I do not want you or any of our members to feel they are uncomfortable in A & P. We want you to be comfortable and at ease.
Often it is just a case of remembering we are all here because each of us has anxiety. We never mean to do anyone any harm.
My eamil is open if you would like to email me.
Gentle Hugs and I am glad you spoke up.
I too am glad that we were able to explain things to you. the last thing we would want is people to feel they are not welcome or safe here. My motto from day one as a Moderator is to do know harm and I continue to do my best.
You write insightful posts and are a great member of the A & P Family.
I am glad you spoke up. Gentle hugs to you.
