I was on the old forum for a few months before the change over and really enjoyed the loving and really helpful support leading up to my dx but i got a very vicious negative response 3 weeks after my diagnosis when i was experiencing an extremely down troubling time and when i was trying to get my head around everything so i decided to ditch this place as it really depressed an upset me to the point that i was crying for days on end. This was a really bad point in my MS journey.
I feel a little stronger now and i’m prepared for the negativity and lack of understanding that some well grounded members may have for newbies that are just finding their feet.
I had some really lovely PM friends and i hope to find them again.
I hope that you are all doing well and i would love to chat once more.
m so sorry you had a negative response on the old forum, it did start to change on there. Shame really cos most of us remember when we were first dxd and what a scary time it was, and want to support the newbies.
Glad you are feeling a bit brighter now.
Must say its certainly not the same as when I first registered, hardly recognise anyone on here.
All the bes.
Thanks for your message and yes this place is different! I have checked in a couple of times over the last few months and everything is sooo different; change isn’t always for the better, eh?
Hi, I am sorry you had a bad response. We are a very friendly and helpful lot here, but as anywhere you can always find one rotten apple that ruins it. I hope you get some more helpful replies if you ever need help in the future. I have put a post on here ealier (a rather personal one),and I have had some lovely replies.
I am sure you will find some relly lovely people here
Hi, glad to have you back, I had missed you and was wondering if you were ok. Cheryl:)
"I would totally love a Jack and coke with lots of ice in a tall glass please!

Verona it wasn’t you, how could it be with your words of wisdom! And Cheryl oh thanks! I’m doing ok, well i’m not actually as i’m pretty poorly right now and laid up in bed. Lynne thank you too for your very kind words.

Thank you all!!
Love Paula xoxoxox
welcome back paula, good to see you here again
p.s. Night Grandma
Jee thanks Willie
So i’m Esther? Who are you?
Hi Paula; I had noticed your absence and am so glad you came back. It is good to see you again,
sorry to hear you’re not so good though
It really upsets me to think that nice people can be chased away by bullies - don’t let them get you down again
Hi Paula, really sorry you had negative response on here before. Awful. !!!
I feel sure you will find things different now and hope you hang around and give us a chance.
Horrid being stuck in bed… fingers crossed things look up for you soon hon.
Ta ta for now,
I’m sorry that you got a negative responce. The trouble with posting on forums (and email) is that it doesnt give the writer chance to mull over what they are saying. If I am writing a snail mail letter I tend to take a day or two and read it over carefully before I put a stamp on it. I have been guilty of a harsh post or two because my fingers have worked faster than my brain. I hope that I never enter the realms of the bully (self opinionated twit but not a bully) This forum is like life - there’s more good than bad and I’m glad that you have returned.
Welcome back Paula!
Why some people feel the need to reply to posts with nothing but vile and nasty remarks is beyond me, and I have seen plenty over the 7 years that I have been here. Lets hope those so called ‘people’ are no longer on site.
There comes a point in your life when you realize…
Who never did,
Who wont anymore…
And who always will.
So don’t worry about people from the past,
There’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future!
Hope you start to feel better real soon!
