I recently started a discussion that was basically a call/plea to all of the DCers that frequented this site in the recent past. And I want to thank those who have commented and are continuing to do so. However, I feel that those of you that weren't here back then, are being left out.
Please know that this wasn't my intention. While we had an exceptionally large group of members that used to participate regularly at one time, that doesn't mean that I ONLY want to hear from them. There aren't any cliques here. It's just that, as one of our friends said to me recently, we had the perfect storm going on here for a while. But please know that we all support one another no matter what the case may be (longtime member, new to site, newly diagnosed, just getting it together, etc). I was just trying to address a feeling/mood that used to be here, is all.
So if I made anyone feel like they were not welcomed to speak up in the discussion I started, again I apologize. What makes this a great venue is the willing participants. So I urge you all to not be afraid to put your two cents into any discussion where you feel you have an opinion and/or something to offer. You'd be surprised who is in the same boat as you. Or start your own, even if it's just to say hi. We want to hear from you, we need to hear from you.
