v       Invitation to New Members… Welcome to HealingWell (Special Request) 

You may already be doing some of the items listed in this thread. 

 

1.   A personal thread is a way of allowing us to learn a little more about “you” and you get to learn a little more about us ~ with information that we provide in our personal signatures. 

2.    Special Welcomes from your new friends ~ will greet you.

3.    It allows us information as to where you are on your journey.  Helping us to Help You!

4.    A “name” (even one made up : ) makes it a little more personal but still anonymous……and we really do get personal in a HealingWell way…!! 

5.    Our diagnosis/decision making/treatment/recovery & healing relies on the sharing of very personal experiences along the way.

 

 Helping “Us” ~  Helps “You"   

Please ~ keep posting, keep questioning, and stay close
