I hope your weekend is good to you. One thing I've noticed recently that has my emotions going sideways is....we have a LOT of new members joining us each week. I've also noticed it on other forums too. More and more people! It's good and it's not so good. Not good because more people are in need, but good because at least they are here where we can all talk with one another and for me that's the best medicine in the world.
When I see new people who are frightened or worried I think back to when I joined the forum. The minute I typed my first post I knew I was in the right place....I was home. I not only have learned how to work with my medical team but how to do things for myself. No doctor is going to teach you that.
So my question today is...when you first came to Healing Well, what good feelings did you have and how has joining this group affected your life?
I don't have to explain much because I've said most of it above but early on I wanted to volunteer to help others and have been doing it for several years. It's nothing someone else can't do just as well, but for me it's therapeutic and comforting when I can help others find what they are looking for. It's how I enjoy the forum.
