I am still stopping by most days. Really sad how this Board (and most of the others Boards on DS that I am affiliated with) have all died since the system modifications. I really do not understand why DS' reconfiguration should have driven everyone away, but it apparently did.

I do stop by, but I've been sickly this winter. Mostly viruses, colds, bronchitis. Won't let up. Makes it hard to contribute much.

I'm guilty too, my RA and other 8 million crappy body parts are being particularly contankerous, and I find myself not having been online for days at a time.

I guess I'm just confused like Sptrout, yes there were bugs, yes there was a bit of a learning curve, but it wasn't rocket science and i've not had any problems with the site in forever. I hate that so many seemed to have given up.

But thanks all you guys for being around, y'all are all super people!!!

Well I sure feel like the new kid on the block. Wondering when I arrived but as per usual late. I do have standards to keep I can't help it if they are low standards by even the most generous measurement. Anyway my pain won't leave me wondering which side I'm on thankfully. Pain aside I'll try to enjoy my time that I'm here as well as my other support groups, great people is my estimation of this support group.

Ghostdancer your completely welcome here. Many of us started this group around the same time in 2008/2009, and it was a very active very supportive group. Unfortunately, Daily Strength revamped the website a few months ago, and many people have left due to complications with the Board and just plain aggravation in having constant problems with the Site. Chronic Pain and aggravation do not mix.

The website has gotten most of the kinks worked through and i've not heard anyone mention a problem in quite a while.

And new people are just as welcome here as the older members.

This is such a valuable board. It's a shame the revamp took so many away. I come on here quite often, and you're right. It's just so....quiet. I'm just now starting to see one of the groups I belong to start to regain members, so maybe the same will slowly start to happen in here.

I've spent so much time just reading posts and not contributing to the group. It is as Yvette said, such a valuable board. I hope I can contribute to the conversation and offer something of value every now and then.

Hey YvetteK nice to see you around!!

@mystrength: please do share, contribute, stalk us,lol, it will all be welcomed. And just a sidenote, Posts don't always have to be about bad days, more pain, etc.

We used to post jokes and makeup word games, that kind of stuff.

Yeah, I hear ha about the sight. I didn'the have any problems learning to navigate the new sight. I guess it is because some people don't like change. I am fine with the new or old format. It is sad how slow this board has become. I'mean here from time to time now due to inactivity.

Hello. I haven't been on in a while. I am still sick with some sort of crud. Coughing and coughing and hacking. Found out I have strep too. Took a Zpack & that didn't kick it so I started amoxicillian on Saturday. Feeling better today.
My husband has been using up our data allowance trying to find work. He is starting a new subcontracting job do I hope it works out.
I have sent hugs to some of you but never heard back. I hope I haven't offended anyone in any way.
A few weeks ago
I did try to leave a detailed reply to a post, I typed for almost an hour on the tiny keyboard on my phone only to have DS not let me send it. I pressed send & it did nothing, more than once. It would not post at all. I was quite frustrated & angry. Maybe that is one reason I & others have given up.
OlderCPer, how about those get to know you questions? I'm still willing to help.
Hope you all are OK.
Take care.

Hey girl, sorry I've not been around much either. Had bronchitis last week that went to pneumonia, and I was in bed for about 7 days. Made it back to the office today for a few hours, and was able to get my hands in the garden yesterday for about 30 min. but that was the extent of my energy level.

Sorry your still not feeling well, some of these bugs just don't like to go away! I hope hubby's new job works out, keeping you guys in my thoughts and prayers as always. Girl I can't imagine you offending anyone, they'd have to be very touchy. lol Hang in there and get well. I'll try to message you in a couple days with some gamey suggestions, have to get my brain into work mode.

take care!!!
