    I was just wondering how many of you all have been coming here for awhile. Seems like some of you have gotten to know each other and sometimes there are even messages titled by members names.

    I think that is quite nice and it must make you all that come on a regular basis feel quite at home here.

    Just wondering and observing.

    Share your thoughts, please!!

    I have been here for 2 years.

    It's just nice to be able to talk to people that understand what you're going through. So glad I found this board.

    I've been here for a long time~
    Now I gotta peek in my profile and see the date I joined.
    I think its been 4 yrs ???

    I joined others at the same time but only stuck to this one for FM. Its the most up to date,fastest moving,friendly,etc.
    a couple of the other boards for Fibro,..I'd post something and it would take 3,4-5 days to get a response!!

    pam sue i've been here since 2003 and its a great place to be.
    there are so many wonderful ppl here and you know you can be frank or just be yourself as everyone pretty much understands you.
    i'd say ive gotten to know ppl quite well but i have never seen anything like a clique or anything like that. its just a safe friendly place to be.

    My profile says that I have been a member since 2002 but I belonged long before that. I think the board was revamped at that time and we lost all the posts before that date and our date of joining was changed.

    I think I have been here since 2000 or 2001. And it is the only board I belong to.

    Hi pamsue & others,

    I've been here since 12/03. I LOVE this board. It has been the best support for me and the BEST place for cutting-edge info on these DD's. I've learned more here than from any other sources!

    I only recently feel "connected" to a small group of fellow boarders...We are all seeing the same FM specialist in Sacramento. His treatment is pretty complicated & it's been so great to have others going through the same challenges with me.

    I probably spend too much time here, but it is time well spent in regards to my health! Now I better leave & get going on housework...Ugh!

    LOL, even tho, my Profile dosen't give the right date, due to a User name change, I have been posting here since, I was dx, in Oct, 2000.
    I have seen many changes, good and well not so good, ;o)

    But it has been a great place to get information, and Friendships have been made here, with others who can Understand what we are going though, and the Battles we face.

    I joined in 2002, but I know it's been longer than that because I retired in July 1999 and I started spending a lot more time on the computer then and just found out what "message boards" were all about then!

  11. I got a computer in 01, then lurked just a while, then joined, but as "Combatmedic" and only posted here and there, but enjoyed it for the most part, I was off reading *Constantly* back then, my eyes were much better..

    Then, I disappeared, and sought support for my MS for quite a while, and was very sick for a while as well, seeing tons of doctors, for all sorts of things, etc.

    Then we got a diff computer, and switched ISP's, and I could not remember my password to come back---AGHHH!! I couldn't access Outlook Express to retrieve it with our new ISP, we always used our Yahoo mail, no spam, and didn't set our Outlook Express mail up, didn't use it so didn't bother, with the new ISP, so I couldn't get my pssword.

    But, I finally came here with this username (LOL--Yes, I got a "no-no e-mail" from tech support about the goof, with diff username---sorry!!!) I just wanted back! lol.. so here I am again, finally..

    So, anyways, somewhere around late 01/early 02 for me, then absent sometime in ?? 04/05 a little, but still read once in a great while, would just peek now and then,

    and now i'm back.

    Hi pamsue, early in 2003, I became a member of the Board under the name, “bakron.” That name changed this past year to “jaltair.” (I had a conflict with the name of “bakron,” and needed to change the name.)

    I had been diagnosed with FMS early in 2002, so it took me nearly a year to find the Board. I looked under many Boards, but found this one to be much more responsive, easier to use, and the people here more knowledgeable.

    In addition, I’ve found the items in the store to be high quality and wonderful, and the information in the library also really helpful.

    I could never express the gratitude I feel for the opportunity ProHealth gives me to participate on the Board as a member.

    Warm wishes, Jeannette

    Can't remember just when I joined but it was right after I could no longer work. Whenever they have changed servers at PH, the date resets, so I've been a member a lot longer than the date in my profile.

    Love, Mikie

    well, just as I thought quite a few of you have been on here a long time, it is nice to know you felt comfortable enough to keep coming back.

    It is hard being the new guy and not being up to date on things that go on on the board, but I am trying to learn and hoping to be here for awhile too.

    Like the rest of you , it is hard to be here everyday due to pain , doctor appt or therapy. I also got a new diagnosis of RSD, so I have been worried about that as well

    Thank you so much for your replies, so happy to meet you all and hope to hear from you more in the future.

    This is a helpful site. It has changed a little in thelast 6 months but it is always nice to be able to talk about how you feel without someone not understanding.
