Hey Everyone
In light of the recent events here, I wanted to take a moment to just say Thank You to our new moderator Gretchen! She was asked to come in and help moderate only months after having been given her own diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. She was still reeling and trying to come to terms with her new world as it would now be defined and yet she willingly stepped up for us all. She may never tell u all this, but i'm going to. Her words to me...many times...have been that she has had so much help and support from everyone here. She's found Healing Well and our MS board to be such a comfort in her very serious times of hurt and fear, that she just had to try to give that back to everyone. Well Gretchen, THANK YOU!!! You have gone to bat for each of us here on different occasions. U protect us and this board as fiercely as u can and when someone is hurting u are there with open arms to help them make it thru their hurt and fear. I'm abundandtly proud of what u do here and humbled to be u'r friend. I love u sweet friend! ;)

Big Ditto here! I haven't been around here long but already everyone here has been a big help and having been part of many other communities (NASCAR racing) it's so nice to be welcomed with plenty of resources and helpful information.
I admire moderators for their commitment and dedication. Thank you both!

Thanks everyone!!!  I am totally blessed to be here.  I have gotten much more than I have given.  I was supported by the wonderful moderators here (Rhonda, Kimber, Shellypoo).  It has been my pleasure to help and support others as I have been supported. 

Thanks for this all of you.  Rhonda, you are amazing!!!

Love and prayers,
