  • I dont know you but you seem like a great person.So dont let some people keep you from the rest of us.We all can learn from each of us. So welcome back

  • Mary,

    Chat has it is disagreements and they will continue to happen, has a lot to do with the real time interaction that goes on. It is the one place on the forums where you can't go back and edit a comment out. As soon as someone hits enter the comment is out there. So that situation works great when someone is in need of help, but also causes problems when someone is being misunderstood as well. Unfortunately there is no good way to address it and then there is the side chatting in yahoo that goes on which we have no control over whatsoever. Like i tell everyone if there is a problem in chat please contact a moderator and give the specifics and the time it happened, if it is not something you can take in a side pm and work it out. The other most important thing to realize here, is people come here from all over the country and world and sometimes the way they write can be somewhat offensive to you or me, but indeed that is not what they meant. For example you are in Chicago and I used to frequent there often, the F-bomb would just fly there it is not meant mean it is just part of their verbage. Now if you came here and used it in the same tense people would get hurt and problems would arise. Now me I let tons of stuff roll off my shoulders when someone is offending someone I know it is not meant for me. Kind of like when I was in sales and the sign said no solicitation that didn't apply to me.

    Anyway I am glad you have decided to come back to spine-health. Yes you have been through a lot and have experiences to help other members just starting down this journey. We all need support now and then and need some understanding. I think you are warm and carrying individual and can do just that here. Good to have you back and take care.

  • Me too,Mary! Too many good people on here to let a few get you down----glad you are staying!Jeannie
  • :D :D :D Smiles around! Welcome back.

    Hey don't worry about your exit post. People who are compassionate also get their feelings easily hurt -- count me as one also. It's the burden we live with for caring (LOL!)

    Glad you're back,

  • I'm very glad you decided to come back. You missed us, didn't you? :-)

    Spine-Health is very unique in that we all share something that nobody else can understand and don't really want to hear about most of the time. When we log on here, we know we're among a special kind of family.

    When you know you've made another spiney's life a little easier to take, it's makes us feel good. And when we reach out to others in our own time of need, it's a wonderful feeling to know that someone will always be there to help us.

    Welcome back, Mary.

  • I guess I don't know you so I never even saw your exit post but from reading your message here I can say I am glad you've decided to come back. Don't know what happened to you and don't need to. Just glad you've decided to not let unkind people rule your life. Welcome back! :)
