  • Anybody else??

    I have noticed that I so look forward to this board every day, it's made a bit of a difference in my life, I don't know how to describe it. Maybe because we come here just as FRIENDS, vs friends with an icky illness. I have so much fun here, and it's amazing how it has perked me up, makes me forget about my "troubles". It's so much fun to share our passions, our hobbies, because if nothing else we crafters etc, love to share what we are doing and see what others are creating! And I don't know, but where I live, I really don't have many opportunities to share stuff, etc. So this is fabulous!!! It's given me back my "creating mood", lol!!! :woohoo:

    I guess I just wanted to say thank you to all you ladies for making my days brighter and much more fun!!
    Hugs,
    Tracey

          Me, too! I have really enjoyed this craft board! In particular - I have had fun getting to know YOU, Traceann. I'm so glad Jill approved the creation of this - it's been a blast.

          Diagnosed August 2001

          Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)


          Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

          I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.

Pretty neat huh?? We now have seen what we all like to do, how VERY talented we all are, how stunningly beautiful we all are and how much fun we all can be!!! LOL!!

            Yep, I too thank Jill from the bottom of my crafty heart for this board!!!

                    A bit late, I know, but I want to add my twopennies worth.
                    I haven't had a lot of time to delve to closely into the boards lately but I have to at least have a little"fix" every day or so.

                    I feel that I have made so many friends here. Some overseas and some at home. Wouldn't we just have the best time if we were ever able to get together? I talk about "the girls" all the time at home and now I have the pictures to put faces to names.
                    Thank you everybody for being here. No matter whats happening at home, someone is always here to make me smile.
