    I am here most of the day.

    I read every new post.I also read every answer to that post.

    I will answer it if I know about it or if I can help in some way.

    I do post when I have a problem or a funny and when I change the pic. in my profile.

    I check the message board twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.

    I post a message whenever I have a problem, and I answer a post if I feel I can be of some help. I look for those who don't already have a lot of responses.

    I don't read all the posts. I usally read those I might know something about, or those I need to know about. I lose strength if I try to stay online too long, so I must pick my responses.

    I am only on here a couple of times a week which is probably why nobody knows me; but if I see a question that I can help with then I reply and I read alot of the posts because most of them give me insight on what to do or what not to do.

    Good question Jim.

    I mainly read and reply if I have something to add.
    I'll usually post if I've learned something new or need feedback on something from other members.

    I try to check the board once a day.

    I read selected posts on Page 1 pretty much every day and subsequent pages on the days that I have the energy for them. I rely on the titles to decide which posts to read - I don't read them all.

    I post several times a week. Mainly replies, but I do occasionally start a new topic if I have new information that other folks might find useful or I have a question that I haven't seen answered before.

    I haven't logged on in a couple of months because of family obligations, SSDI application, individual correspondence, and medical appointments left me really drained. When I am less tied up, I try to get on at least a couple of times a week. Can't stand being on the computer for more than about 45 mins or so.

    I visit the site at least once a day. I usually skim the messages, looking for subjects of interest. If I find one, I'll usually reply.

    Once in a while I'll start a thread of my own. Maybe once a week.

    Love this site and the people here!!

    Wow you made me think!

    When I first started it was daily but then we got our own local support group from this site and that has kept me very busy and I went 3 months without posting.

    It's impossible for me to just read the posts without posting.

    I noticed it goes in waves about topics and that has a lot to do with it.

    I am surprised to learn how many people are just readers, but there's a lot who use this board for information and support.

    pretty well I come less often since I'm trying to catch up on things I've been unable to do. If I'm feeling especially lousy I might stay away or
    I might come more often for the company.

    I scan the posts and read what seems important to me, also like others I look for posts that don't get many replies. Some posts I shouldn't get into and do leave some of those alone because I'm too opinionated on some things..obviously. I try not to be. Even when I give in to temptation to reply to something I think is just a bad idea I TRY to keep it short and not REAL critical.

    I'm alone alot so some days I just NEED to vent or ramble. So I'm a sporadic, sometimes helpful, sometimes irritating, always "trying" to be helpful member. Oh, and a big fan of Mikie's!

    I am pretty much a quiet member, reading and replying when I think I have something to add. Just want to say this is ABSOLUTELY the best of boards! Thanks to all of you I don't feel alone with my FM anymore!

    I rarely start a post. I mostly look for posts to answer that I could be of help with. I basically get on the computer once a day, but sometimes I do get on at night. Just depends on how I feel.
