Diane, I don't know what was said to you, but when I think of the years on this board when I was attacked for my beliefs on healing, etc. I would have been gone a long time ago.
As I see it we are all strangers and most likely will never meet in person and some days people just are little more cranky than other days, and some people are just more cranky anyway..... Many of those people who attacked me are long gone but the memories are there....I could have very easily thrown it all in years ago, but I hung in.
Maybe you are being too sensitive, but I would let it go if it were me and not bother with that person...or weigh the pros and cons of what was said...anyway, my thoughts....
I'm on other boards and believe me there is meaness everywhere.....jam
Diane, I talked to Julie, and I was kinda kidding with her as she does so much, it's hard to believe someone with CFS can do what she does, guess I was feeling sorry for me too, as I do so little. Anyway, can we let it go. I'll not go to the porches, I have nothing to talk about anyway.....I don't really want to talk about my kids, and sil with cancer and I can just talk about playing bridge so much, who cares....anyway....I don't need to be over there and I'm gone....jam
Julie - I think you ARE ALREADY SENSITIVE to peoples feelings. BTW, I posted on the Porch and other threads besides the Lounge to talk to Mikie. Everyone else was gone so it was just she and I !! Can't remember which other thread it was - duh !! With all your medical problems you still manage to do so much for so many - and that my dear includes us here on the boards. DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME YOU SHOULDN'T BE HERE FOR ANY REASON !! I AM ALSO SORRY THAT YOU WERE HURT. Hope it never happens again. I do know how it feels.
Have doc appt. this afternoon as my b/p has been all over the place and this morning my systolic (lower #) was in 90's and then 100. That is not a good sign. The systolic was a little high but not bad 134 or something like that. AAACK this is driving me crazy and such a bad weekend. DH just trimmed the brisket and I will marinate it tonight and cook tomorrow. Have church Sunday so kids will come in the early afternoon. I suspect I will have another med change in b/p and they are already strong. Hope he can find something generic . Paying $80 or $90 a crack is not a good thing. We are already cutting back on a lot of stuff. I can see the handwriting on the wall , especially being dependent on Medicare. Our secondary insurer through DH's work hasn't been paying a whole lot either and I suspect we may get that dropped and prescription benefits eliminated. They already have been chopped some this year. I we are luckier that others so SHOULD be happy. Part of my problem is probably due to worriers with two of the girls, one especially, who is divorced. That is a very long story and you don't want to hear it.
Diane - glad you didn't have any or much damage from the storm. I think you said that you had some limbs down and such. I think JULIE said that they didn't have to much either, if my fuzzy brain remembers correctly.
Sorry if I got off topic here everyone. However, I do think it might be a good idea to put RULES on the board to remind everyone to be careful how they post and what they say. Most people on the boars are battling so many kinds of medical problems and are probably worn down in many ways. A bad post could be very hurtful, even if the poster thinks it's OK.
Believe me JULIE I know how you feel being worn down and sometimes very touchy. I do feel in this case you had a reason to be upset and I am so sorry for your hurt.
Love and think of you all, especially JULIE,
