Is there a way to send a message to someone via a private message that I am not aware of?
I ask because every once in awhile one of us might like to send a note to someone with our tel # who seem to be in dire straits and could use extra help or advice or whatever.
Since this board is so public I am not comfortable to offer my Tel# to someone to try to offer assistance within a thread. I know all the regular posters here would not abuse or do anything improper but I have found a few times I would like to offer some extra help and reach out if the person wanted to avail themselves of it.
it would be great if this site could set up private messaging. I had my email listed on here and had some nut job emailing me nasty emails. It was scary. I will never post my email address on a public forum ever again. Lesson learned.
DX UC - in 2005 when I was 37
Tried every drug-even Remicade-Tried diets-nothing worked-wanted my life back!
Step 1: J-pouch surgery (Laparoscopic restorative proctocolectomy w/ temporary diverting loop ileostomy) 6-25-10
Step 2: Take down surgery (Ileostomy reversal) 10/8/10
No more UC and no more drugs!! Very happy with my results of this surgery-got my life back! :)
