Hello to all I've been chatting with and comparing recoveries with. I've noticed that there isn't much new material being posted, just the same questions posed by newer members who haven't read older posts. Or members posting about something they did that they knew they shouldn't and had issues they caused themself. There's nothing more I can add to this board that's constructive. Plus the more I read the more frustrated I become that adults can't write a sentence with basic elementary level punctation or spelling so that you can understand what they are asking. I'm dropping out and want to wish everyone a good outcome with upcoming surgery, continued progress towards a better life for those who are post surgery, and best wishes to those who are on the testing road to determine if surgery is a good option for them.
Doghouse, Porcelain Doll, Another Day, Booklady12, Allycar00 and Tammy - it's truly been a pleasure chatting with you this past month. I wish you all the best. God Bless, Merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy New Year.
HappilyWrapped, I think you have been very helpful to others on the site. I also hope everything goes well with your gallbladder surgery and that you will keep us posted on that.
As for some of your message above, such as members doing something they knew they shouldn't do, I know I certainly got food stuck many times during my post-op recovery because I ate to fast. I think a lot of people have to learn this the hard way. I know I did.
Regarding the spelling and punctuation, I think a lot of times people get on a forum or message board and just let their fingers fly and don't think to spell check. Personally, I don't know that it is all that important as long as we can understand what they are trying to say.
We try hard to keep everything positive at HealingWell and I would not want to deter members from posting because of their spelling or punctuation.
