I could be wrong....but this kind of "drama" and/or disagreement hasn't happened in a long time. In fact, I'd say the board has been relatively supportive and peaceful. I don't know why we can't have a discussion w/out it turning into a drama-fueled situation.
I didn't want Frances to leave.... but, as said, that is her choice.
I've been on here since 2008.... over time, we've come to know each other, each other's stories, the struggles, the good times and so forth. The only point I was making was this.... Let's say I started off as "SleeplessinCA". I made friends, told my story, all of that. Had many, many conversations w/ all of you with this username. Then, I switched to "Momto8kids". Fine - no problem. We are all entitled to "change" our username. But then to act like I didn't know any of you??? Especially if someone says "Hey, we haven't met before".
I'm sorry if no one else agrees w/ me. I found it bizarre. I didn't ask for anyone to leave, get banned, get in trouble or whatever. But it is hard when you give your heart, time and soul to help support other people....and then things like this happen.
And, if you do a search in 2008 (again, I was member so I didn't just look it up - I remember) - there were many conversations between all of us w/ this person's username.
Enough said. I know what's going to happen because it always happens. This thread will get locked or deleted.
These things happen from time to time. Overall, though, everyone here is wonderful, supportive and so forth. Most of us consider each other "family"..... I'm sorry if you disagree w/ my position on all of this, but I still hold to the principle of it.
Many, many health and pain issues.
Many meds - including Atenolol, Effexor, MS Contin, Dilaudid, Actiq (oral Fentanyl), Soma, Vitamin D, Iron (for anemia), Synthroid...and on the list goes.
Personal: I'm a Christian wife and mother; I have six sons and identical twin daughters.
