We have had some old friends who have been away for a while returning to the Chit Chat Forum. Many of us here have been visiting the 'Porch' for a long time and it's so good to see our old friends again.

One member was worried that old friends and new members might be shy and afraid to post on the Porch because they think it might be a closed group of long time friends. We welcome old and new friends alike. It's good to see the old friends again and it's great to see the interests our new friends bring to the group.

We hope all y'all will stop in and join us.

Love, Mikie

Thanks for all your replies !! Yes, as MIKIE said we welcome old and new members all the time and it is great to see those that have disappeared and come back to tell us where they have been and what they have been up to. Thanks Patti Lilea and Tiger on Jaminhealth. Have thought about her and wondered what she has been up to. I just saw this post and am glad I did. :)!!

Love you all!
Granni :)

Well, today I was here reading one of Cort's blogs about what I call the Fab2: Mark and Ron Davis, not related, from the Stanford ME/CFS studies, and said, "hey,you, you haven't stopped by the forums in years...go see who's still around!" So here I come, and there is Mikie and grannyluvsyu, and more...how nice y'all are still here, and I'm sure still giving support to others and lots of newbies. I hope you are all AWACBE! I will try to come around more, to catch up with you, but having some carpel tunnel problems, and getting EMG (as possible pre-op) on hands tomorrow, so might be awhile...I'm in splints and loopy from pain meds on top of all my others. I have to tell you, I'm Kathryn Stephens (Kathy Hunt) on FB, so plz come on by and see any research I post. I work about 6 hours a day looking for research about FM, MS, CFS, ME and others that might turn out to be applicable to any of us. My
FB page is Public, and I have many professional people stop by. I admit I've been a bit rabid lately policically, but
mostly I do medical research.
It's so nice to come back after years away and PH still has my old login and password! Thanks for saving it, ProHealth!

Mikie,
I don’t know anything about your website or who you are but I need your help, you seem to know a lot and I’m begging you for help with something, if there is anyway we can privately chat I would love to do so, this is with the upmost urgency as I fear time is not on our side. Hopefully we will talk soon, thank you for your time

Hello, Mildred,

Glad you found us and hope you find our wonderful website as helpful as I have. It has been a God send in terms of learning of new treatments and in finding a whole new online family for love and support. Please join us on the latest Porch thread where we stop in to keep in touch with old and new friends.

Love, Mikie

It has certainly been a long time since I have been here but deciding to come back. I guess I have hardly been here since we lost our good friend (and my dear husband) Billcamo. It is hard to believe that Bill has been gone about 9 years. I don't see a lot of the old names from our old board but I will be looking for some of them as well as new ones.
 
Old friend here....I've been lurking on occasion, not sure how long ago they changed the format of the board, it made me a little intimidated to post. I poked in for a quick look at the porch light and saw a few names I remember fondly.

I used to be pretty well informed about Fibro and CFS, but got to a point that I just couldn't think about it any more. It was hard for me to stay positive when I only hit dead ends so I haven't kept up with the research.

With this stupid virus I find myself thinking about it more than I like. I think about the covid long haulers, how much it sounds like Fibro/CFS and feel terrible for them. Then I wonder if the virus could make those of us who already have these symptoms feel even worse (is that even possible?). I also wonder if the vaccine could make us feel worse.

Any thoughts?

Hi, Joann,

Good to see you here. I'm sorry you kept hitting dead ends. These diseases are so hard to treat. I don't know whether you remember or not that I tried most everything I could find to heal. I think most of them helped a little and all together, they helped a lot over time. Nothing was a cure though and I have basically learned to live with my limitations. I am not in the pain I once was and that helps a lot.

Some docs are even calling the long haulers' exhaustion CFIDS. Their symptoms are a lot like ours. My DD, DSIL and DGS have had Covid. They still have days when they don't feel well and DD suffers from fatigue. I had a flu bug a year ago and am exhausted beyond what I usually am. I don't normally get flu shots but I will get the Covid vaccination. My sister-in-law and her significant other both died from it.

Why not stop in at the Porch and catch up with us. We would love that.

Love, Mikie

Dear Johnswick,

I'm sorry to read about that. I'm sending you a little bit of love and hope it helps. People here are wonderful and maybe you can make some new friends here.
