This is an extremely busy forum and often it's more than 3-4 people can do to keep up with so many posts and questions. The admin, Peter, today appointed Screaming Eagle as a moderator to help here on the Chronic Pain forum. I know he's been a great help already and now he'll be able to help even more. If you haven't met him yet give him a wave and you'll have a friend for life. wink

Thanks, SE for volunteering. I know you'll be a boon to the membership in this forum and HW in general...

Warm hugs,
Chutz smilewinkgrin

Hey SE, congrats on becoming a mod. After you have been one a bit let me know if it makes you feel any different, lol. I had a member ask me that here a while back and I said well, not really, I just am doing what I did before saying hi to people and helping them if I can and thats about it. I didn't know I was suppose to feel different. lol

You have been doing the job for so long and doing a great job at that. I'm glad you finally got the title. But no, I don't think you will feel much different. Just keep doing the wonderful job that you do --that comes easy for you, because you are such a caring person and truly help people with your sincere empathy and sympathy.

You are one of a kind, Michael and we are both glad and proud to have you here on the Healing Well forum. God bless you.

Congratulations my friend! It appears that scrambled eggs are the eggs of choice!!

LOL...truthfully Michael, I think you are a perfect choice for the role and I'm happy to see that you're feeling well enough to accept it. I know you went through a pretty rough phase there for awhile, when it was hard for you to even post. You've shown a lot of strength and courage and those are great gifts to share with the others here as a Moderator.

I'm very happy for you smilewinkgrin Congratulations again!

   Thank You "ALL" so much for the warm responses! Words cannot express enough my deepest and most sincere gratitude for the warm congratulations and welcome you have posted here!
     Chutz summed it up the other day, when she said, "I love this forum" My feelings are sincerely likewise!
 When I joined this forum back in September of 2009, I was immediately attracted to the warm responses and over whemling outpouring of care, and understanding. The devotion of caring members was undeniable and sincere in the replies written to me. Quite simply, the members plucked me out of one of the darkest times of my life, and I will be forever greatful to you all.
   Many of you have gone to great lengths, to educate me and others alike. Each and everyone of you should be proud of yourselves. I 'm sure that it is not only an honor for me, but for all members to be a part of this wonderful forum. I do sincerely believe, that we offer one of the best forums on the web, when dealing with "Chronic Pain", and I am proud of that!
   It will always be my desire to support "ALL" members and I look forward to working with "ALL" Moderators as well. It takes "team work" in all aspects of this forum.
    Many of you have asked me if there was anything you could do to help as I humbly accepted this new responsibility, and my answer to you is Yes!......"Reach out and support with compassion, lift up the broken in spirit, and never ever stop climbing the "Chronic Pain Ladder"
    Again!...."Thank You" .....I'm greatful for the opertunity to assist  you all!
         With Sincerity!
