before we all start sending mail to an outside email address, how about you talk to all of us here?

I think thats a great idea . I sent a pm asking her to remove the email for her and others security but since I didn't hear back I removed it .

I also suggest that the forum is a good safe place to meet friends, you just have to stick around and be patient and cultivate some relationships . I have made many friends here so I know it can be done .

I agree always good to meet new friends. even better on a long night like this when one can not sleep..  I have a question though  I have googled and can't not find anything for a support group in my area . I was wondering  how I would find out about one. beginning to think I'm alone out here. I'm sure I'm not just feels that way!

Donna,

You'll find it easier to talk and meet friends here in the forums.  Many become friends and talk here in the forums, through messaging here, or through email, phone calls, and Skype. 

When I first signed up here, I had never taken part in an online forum.  I figured there would be people asking a question and then never participating again-- just anonymous people circulating in and out.  That's why I did not think to come up with a more interesting user name.  I didn't think I would be talking to the same people, so now I am tednlou2, which a couple people thought was a sexual reference...lol.  I look forward to hearing more from you.

she may be totally new to the internet, and its arcane rules of etiquette, i say we cut her a little slack... anyone emailed her personally yet? not that many posts, but a long time member, has posted her email periodically.

could be a trap

Good Luck Donna  I hope you find the friends you need.  I don't seem to fit in any where and no one wants to just sit down and talk to me. I have to much I need to say and no one to say it to.. One fucking case of hiv in the county I live and can we all guess who that might be? never felt so alone in my whole life. I can see why people give up and don't want to go on!

I can identify with your need to have friends. Just continue working on yourself and the right friends will come along. Just keep your head up, the longest journey begins with a single step.

Sorry y'all. I'm just an unstable forum user. I'm avid when it comes to the internet but not so great at navigating forums. Lol. I guess I made a mistake but I promise I'm not a trap. I really just want to know how others are learning to cope with this. I know it's not hard healthiest as much as it used to be, But I do find it harder to communicate effectively and I feel less than adequate being positive. Take care if I don't grasp the feel of forum talking then at least I straightened up the email dilemma. But I'm going to try to get used to using this =)

Donna, I didn't know what I was doing when I joined years ago.  Even now, I don't know how to post a picture.  Just stick around, you'll get the hang of navigating the different topics, subjects, etc.   I'm glad to see you back!

Thanks betty, for the comforting welcome back. I appreciate it. It's so much harder to communicate on the net.  :)

Yo Donna

I've made some serious blunders on the Internet.

The one blunder you did not make is finding a lot of varied, interesting, often funny and mostly infected people here who are good at helping people shoulder all sorts of questions and burdens.

Welcome.
