Howdy LG!

(this is for people with computers not smartphone apps - Am a bit of a Luddite there myself)

To connect with a particular friend click on their profile pic. Their profile will appear, left click on the "connect" button. there will be a drop down box appear and left click on the friend link and you will then see a friend request for that person. click on send request, and you'll have to wait for the person to accept it. Then you can send Private messages (PMs) back and forth.

Welcome, Rachel. So what's a community manager do? I'm new and have been having login problems so not in a groove yet:)

Jeanette I see you are staying on as a PA. So as we Welcome Rachel, perhaps you can share the reasons for this change? Whats changed for you that this role is being passed onto bright and sunny Rachel? And thank you for staying on as a PA by the way.

Well I have made the decision to only work part time so that I can be home with my son. In order for us to continue to help all of you great people here in the community with your needs Rachel will be taking over as community manager and I will continue to help her out as a patient advocate.

Of course I would never leave all of you friends that I have made here. I am still here to help out so don't hesitate to ask if you have a questions.

She was sent to me by God because he knew I needed someone to love. I had 6 children but they all live in other states. I travel much. I have roses in my garden be it small but all I need.Well enough about me. I'd love to here about you /Waynetta from MS

Hello and welcome! Do we friend her with her name as you have it here or does she have a different name on the community here? I tried to search for her but her name doesn't come up.
