when  i first started on this forum, i got help from many people because although i am not new to cp, i am very new to technology i.e., computers.  i think either straydog or screaming eagle, and a lot of other people helped me in getting started, i remember these two people in particular because one of you helped me with going to certain page or pages that were helpful.  unfortunatley i have no memory left to speak of so i have forgotten what i was told, if someone could help me again, i promise i will also write it down. my biggest problem is responding to all the helpful persons when i post, sometimes a certain person will respond with something i have totally been through myself, but aside from responding to my own posts, i cant remember how to reach out further to a specific person, without being intrusive. i am 58 soon, and my memory is just not what it used to be i should have written it down the first time. anyway help please

Hello NiNi53!

Well....I'm not quite sure I understand the question, but I will rattle on here and take a stab at a few ways you can respond or at least research a members post.

Of course, you can always reply to any post here on the board by hitting the "Post Reply" button. If you would like to grab a members attention, you can simply post a new topic and headline it with the members name.
I don't think a single member will view this as intrusive, and will actually welcome the shout out to them. We are one big family after all, and concern and compassion is always welcome here.

You might also try and post a topic with the members name, and in the body ask them to contact you via email, if you wish to visit in private. Remember though, not all members will want their email address known, and may not reply back to you. They can however leave a message and invite you to the chat room for a good visit. Please note that you can also have a private chat without other members viewing what is shared between the two of you.

Then if your wanting to try and recall someones conversation, you can always hit the "search" button and type in the members name and the topic you best recall was related to the original post. Anything tied to that particular member and that topic will be presented in a selection of websites for your choosing. They should all be Healing Well related.

I hope this helps, and if not, you may contact any one of the Moderators, and they will be happy to assist you. I'm also available and can be reached by email. Simply click on my name and it will take you to a page where my address is listed. This holds true with any of the Moderators as well, plus any member who has listed their email address.

Sorry if I missed the jest of your question. Anybody feel free to chip in here if you understand the question better than I do. I have a feeling I did not do this justice.

Take care,

SE wink

  Dear Ni Ni,
 
   I will email you the useful tips page with "hot links" tonight. I have an "Updated" version of the page I will gladly send you. In the mean time use this link. "Copy" and "paste" the links to your web browser. Other wise I will email you a full page with hotlinks tonight that is easier.

NiNi, it's good you asked as so many people do have memory problems..
Hopefully Dani's e-mail to you will help, and just refer to that when needed.
or you can always ask questions on Thursday Chat nights too....
well wishes and healing hugz

NiNi53, there are no dumb questions asked here at the forum, lol. We all had to start somewhere, right. If we don't ask then we will not know. I will be 58 in June, when do you turn 58? HW is my only & first forum I ever visited and it took me awhile to figure it all out too. I found the longer I was here the easier it became for me. If you want to post a new Topic all you have to do is click Post New Topic it is located at the top and bottom of each page, along with Post Reply which is you wanting to reply to a post you just read. There is a search at the top of this page where you type in what you are searching for.

Hope this helps.

straydog i turn 58 may 30  my birthday has always been a holiday "memorial day" for that  i am grateful, as i never had to either go to school, or when that was done and i Oh for the times i had days off, and not all days off, i think not working outside the house has been the hardest adjustment of all.  when i became disabled i had a great job with great benefits, and we all know benefits are sometimes as important as pay.  anyway i have had many years to adjust to not working outside the house, and only have feelings of uselessness not as often at all as in the beginning. i am babbling on. i take it you are either a gemini or cancer, as you can see i am gemini the twins and i can tell you sometimes i feel like i have multiple personality.  i am joking for the most part, although i know what star sign i am, and have many characteristics of the twins, i make my own way. thank you so much for your help, which i am pretty sure you are the person who helped me when i started, as i am typing i am thinking when i get off the forum for now i will look it up. i am not having a good day, the weather is finally good, its warm and not raining, but i am so very stiff i have to take short walks. i go for my monthly appointment next week and as much as i dont want to i am going to have to ask my doc to adjust my meds, as this is not the first time i have felt this bad, i am not going to wait until its totally unbearable. hoping you are having a low pain day and many more. thanks again.

christina and mrsdani, thank you for your response, christina you are so right, no one is ever to old to learn. i am almost over the feeling of fear thinking the next button i hit will explode the entire laptop, so as i learn more and more the easier it will be.  my problem has always been (even before i became a cp patient) procrastination, i will do it tomorrow has always been my call. i am making a serious effort and will overcome this problem. with life you cant go back but you can go forward and keep going forward.  mrsdani, you have always made me smile with your questions easter candy and the rest, it is so amazing how much laughter can make so much so better, if only for a while. i am not having good days here lately, actually for about 2 months now. at my next appt. i am going to request my meds get rearanged,  or more or what ever it takes, at first i thought it was the weather but it has been warm at least this month of april so if i want to continue of my life with as little pain as possible, it that time. i am grateful i have a good doctor i know he will help. heres hoping all have low pain days and many smiles.
