yeah  Hi there guys.  I have been thinking the past few days, and have decided to put you guys in the hot seat for a minute...
 
You know the reasons we all came here, and you guys have watched many of us come and go...now, I am personally curious as to the following questions...
 
1...How did you find Healingwell?
 
2...The first time you came here, what were you looking for?  Like thinking back to your first post, what were you asking for, or talking about?
 
3...How long after you came here did you decide you wanted to be a moderator, and why did you want to be one?
 
4...Has dealing with your anxiety, panic, or depression taught you anything, or in anyway made you stronger?
 
Those were just a few questions that come to mind when I think about you, or wonderful forum moderators...I think others should feel free to ask some questions if anyone has any, and as long as you guys don't mind getting a little personal!!!
 
And, I want to say a big thank you to you guys for being here for us, and of course, we are all here for eachother, but you guys answer everything in a timely manner, and you really keep this board running smoothly, so THANK YOU GUYS!
 
** TAMMY I put in ALL our moderators hoping other mods from other forums will participate
I think this is a great thread sweetie .........**IF you dont want ALL in there then take it out .....your call k ..........Luvs

Aw this is easy..............I had been with another of the large Mental Health Groups as I had joined up when I was at my lowest in January of 2006.  I had never been on a support forum before.  I posted about my anxiety and depression and made friends there.  I was asked to be a moderator and eventually was the moderator in charge for the site.

I had posted close to 10,000 posts and one day I felt I wanted to branch out as my husband has Crohn's and I have some other physical issues that were not covered on the site.

So I joined this wonderful site. I love it here.  The other site is good but this has more medical as well as the Mental Health component.

I was approach by Lyn to join this forum as a mod  as I was on the Prostate Cancer Forum because my family has high amount of cancer and I thought I could moderate it.  I did not have the disease and I was just in the wrong place.  Lyn was my mentor and has helped me settle in here.

Moderating is a wonderful way to volunteer.  One day you are the one helping someone else and yet you may still ask for support for yourself.

I support all of our members, vow to do no harm and attempt my best to keep our forum safe for all the members.

That's My story and I am sticking to it.  yeah   yeah   yeah   yeah

Hugs galore and I am open to any questions.  One thing I am not and that is perfect. eyes

  Hi Tammy,

  I'm freezinginAK / Cowboy up

  I join up back in nov. 06 after having gone though State Voc Rehab for 2 years mainly waiting on them and all the testing I had to do and medical testings after being over exposed to the chemicals that I had worked with and was then told I was untrainable because of my A/P and CFS

  I then started looking for some kind of help for myself and found HW, the support here was the best and was welcome in without a problem, for deep down I knew I could beat this A/P and had to! As my depression was hitting me hard with the long dark winters here in Alaska I found myself asking Q's and in return answering Q's and then Lyn asked if I would become a forum mod with A/P.

  I know I have not been on much, but are summers here are short and we must get as much done as we can before the snow fly's getting are fish, hunting, tending the horses, getting hay and the list go's on and on lol

  But having been on here I have learned so much on dealing with my Anxiety and my CFS that I haven't had a attack in over 9 months now but I still can't get fully over the CF that I still must take my brakes and naps as needed.

  But I'm looking forward to meeting ya'll here soon as things tend too die off work why's when we start getting colder and the snow hits, right now it's 27 outside and a heavy frost and should have about a foot of the white stuff on the ground by the end of this month
