Hi!
 
I was following another thread this morning and it seems like I got completely lost in it.  I'm almost confused on who wrote what, but I know you made a comment about being afraid to start a post and having your feelings hurt.
 
I just wanted to go on record as saying that I enjoy your posts (even if I don't always respond to every one).  I enjoy reading about you and I care about you.  You have been through a very rough time lately and, if your like me, you could probably use a little more support than you sometimes get. 
 
I don't know why, but it does seem like some posts get way more responses than others, but I'm hoping that is because we don't have experience in that particular medical situation.  I know I am away from the board sometimes and forget to log off.  I'm not lurking at those times, I'm gone and can't respond.  If I've ever missed you for that, or any other reason, I'm sorry. 
 
Also, if I've posted this against your wisnes...please jot a quick reply and I'll remove it from the board.
 
All my best!

Hey RM, that was my post. I was having a pity party for myself because I hadn't received many replies to it. I really appreciated Stac and everyone else who came on and tried to explain that it has happened to them.

I really hope I am not one to hurt anyones feelings too. But I think you really nailed it when you said that sometimes people don't reply because they don't have experience with that particular condition. I hadn't thought of it that way. I for one appreciate the fact that you explained that.

Sorry Stac, I am by no means trying to answer for you. I was just trying to shed some light on what had happened. Please jump on and let us know how you are...I love ya girl!
Gentle Hugs,

Hi Shannon,

I appreciate the response. I didn't mean to get the wrong person, but the thread was a little confusing to me and I wanted to make sure Stac knew she was wanted and appreciated.....just like you!

I know I am one who tries to post to as many as I can when I'm feeling better or when I'm confined to my recliner for the day. If not, then I don't get in the posting time I would like. It's kind of hard when you want to give support, but you don't understand the specific condition that affects the other person. I have some issues that are uncommon, so I understand that many people just "don't get it". The understand CP very well (here), but the specific conditions are so rare some times that they are beyond comprehension. All I can really say is Thank God we don't all have them!

Again, I'm glad you caught this thread and that you spoke up. I enjoy reading and learning from everyone, even if I don't always get it 100% right!

Thanks as always!

I don't reply when I don't know much about the specific illness. I haven't been posting as much lately, and if I see a post that I know something about, I do try to respond.

I have posted topics and not gotten many replies. I think that it's probably because of the same reasons that I don't post to some threads. But, my feelings have gotten hurt in the past. I'm sensitive though:)

Hugs,

Flower

   I know just what your talking about retiredmom! There are a couple of member with complaciated health issues, and I just don't know how to respond to them. However I still support them as best I can.

      At least you are reaching out to them. That has a very positive effect on them, especially if they get few responces because of the difficulty of understanding their conditions.
