Great thread .........I know I decided I had to give back some of what I have been given in my time here at HW
I lost mom to c/o of Alzheimers and Dad is going down as well with same DD....I am the caregiver for him and was for mom........I have a teen daughter 32 yr old son and 2 grandbabes.............10 and 7 yrs old .......Retired RN and come from Ontario Canada. I first found this site at my lowest and was taken in and supported and care for by so many of the ppl on all forums .......that was why I wanted to be a Moderator......To volunteer and try to keep HW running smoothly as well as getting to know members of old and all the new ones .....this site has grown so much in the last few yrs and has great rep for its support information sharing and caring
Please do remeber we ( I ) am only Human .......we are just like all others here..........LYN

Good Morning...........yes Moderators are just members with problems like everyone else here.
I have A & P, Depression, Gerd, IBS and a hubby with Crohn's. I have lost a son in a car accident and just yesterday buried my sister.
The love and support I have received these past 3 weeks from the members of HW has just reinforced in me that mods are human and soak up the love and support of all the members of Healing Well.
So today I may be the person with the ability to help, but tomorrow I may be the recipient of other member's effort. Volunteering as a Mod is my way of giving back the love and support I receive.
Gentle Hugs to all

That was so nice to hear and I know I love the site and helping people. Lyn has been my mentor and I hope some day to be as wonderful as she is.
I am glad everytime I can help someone in any small way. Most of all I like to let people know that I am hear and boy do I understand .
To a joyful present and a well remembered past. Best wishes for Happy holidays and a magnificent New Year.
Hey there Big Sis,

A comment here for all, Mods are human, someone must not like me as I am getting signed up for email newsletters and this morning I had 210 registration thank yous................. Oy as Lyn says, why me and why now? I guess I am human.
Feeling a bit down but, hey, we all get a day here and there.

Good Morning All and Big Sis
Mods are human...........in fact so human that I have been eating to many holiday treats. LOL
Big Sis is having the storm of the century. A snowball fight, how fun.
No I am sure it is not fun when you have to live through it.
Hugs at all of you.
That is a wonderful thing you have done. This time of year the giving is so much more fun then the getting.
We have a very similar program right here in town through the Family Services. They also handle our food shelves program too.
Mods make great Volunteers....................Hugs at ya
Hey, Did I miss something...............what is wrong with Heather? Is she the quilt maker...................

Bipolar IIIt is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare
