So I saw this:
I thought it would be good to give a little cross-forum recognition.  Karen and Kitt do yeoman service over there and it's a tough place - they manage to stay positive and helpful.  Due to my own depression I can't read too much there without it starting to drag me down some.  (Don't think I "should" feel that way but ....)
Then I thought - we should thank our forum mods too - Chutz, Sherrine, Marlee, Karen .. and please help cause I'm sure I can't remember everyone - cause they work so hard to give this forum its personality.
And then I thought - really, it's also all the people here that share their feelings and support that make this forum such a great place.
So this is kind of like being on stage and not knowing how to get off so I'll just say -
Thank You!

Rich, What a wonderful idea to say thank you to our moderators, including Ginny.  They do such a good job of keeping this a place we can come & not have to worry about being spammed or scammed or judged.  We never have to worry about bad language or ****ty jokes because they are just not here.  I haven't really appreciated that enough, I don't think.  So I do want to say thank you, Moderators, one & all.  Thank you, also, to all who come here & help make this site what it is.  Hugs to all FMily,  Denise

Yes, Rich... what a wonderful idea!!!!  I, too, would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of our mods.  They all do an awesome job and that keeps me coming back every single day to check on my FMily and friends.  This is a wonderful site and it couldn't be that way with out their hard work and true concern for all of us.  We love our mods and really appreciate everything they do for us.

Thanks but Rich is right it is everyone on here that makes this such a great family. I don't visit other fibro forums but I think it would be hard to find one like ours.
Rich years ago when I was having horrible anxiety and panic attacks I joined a forum for anxiety and I had to quit going to it cause it caused more anxiety reading the post. I couldn't do what Karen and Kitt do, it would bring me down. I don't even visit the anxiety and depression forums on Healing Well. Negative energy brings me down but here I can keep the positive energy going.
luv and hugs

WE have wonderful moderators. I am still amazed that they manage to keep a lid on quackery with such phenomenal diplomacy. In addition, their support and willingness to learn is wonderful.

Thanks to all of you,

Thank you everyone!  But Marlee is so correct in saying it is EVERYONE that makes this forum the best one out there!  We all help one another and we really do care about each other.  That makes us a family.
Thank you, everyone, for all of the help and caring you show each other.  This is what makes this forum a "safe" place to be.
