Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Cant Handle this, Cant Cope, Cant, Cant
I am going to apologize upfront if this post offends anyone.
There are so many members here that have been living with chronic pain for long periods of time, some over 30 years.
They've dealt with all the surgeries, diagnostic tests, treatments, therapies, etc. So, they are pretty much versed in to the problems with the spine.
But there is one thing that bothers me. We have many new members that come here to ask questions, discuss their situations, etc. That is just one of the reasons we are here for. But, when I read about a new member who only wants to complain about their situation and are really not interested in other folks well being, I get upset.
Pain is pain, no question about that. But handling it? Do you really have choices? You can whine, cry, scream and yell to everyone about poor you.. Yes, you might get some folks to respond to you.
Personally, I tend to over look some of those posts. With time being limited, I much rather spend my time helping someone who is looking for help.
There is a big difference between looking for pity vs looking for help.
Trust me, I've been here a long time now and you will get the most responses and most help when you think about how and what you post.
Here, I'd love to say CAN'T isnt a valid word, only CAN IS!
