this forum is a life line for those getting there heads around arther. some only drop in to lwa, others chit chat but all find unreserved friendship given and nothing expected in return. it might be arther that causing problems or personal life what ever some one will always try to help and support.
t all we ask is every one does the same. but remember you will not know what others are going through, so some times people come across as off hand or rude but life sometimes is hard so do not take offense but give the benefit of the doubt and read through what you are posting as it does not always read as you think it does.
we tend to get into groups as is quite normal in life, but remember friendship thrives when given freely and the friends you make will be special never judging you as others might.
thank you to jean123 and the mods for taking the time to help run the site it means so much to so many thankyou val

    Val that was so well said....like you say we never know what is really going on in peoples lives, sometimes what they type can be misunderstood ,like a text really., I know that they dont always read like they are meant.
    I for one am really grateful for this forum..... :grin:
    Love

    Thank you Val.
    you are so right we help one another to get though life with arther and this forum is the best way to do it.
    we all get help its like a person to talk to and it makes you feel better knowing you have told some one who has the same as you.
    i dont know what it would be like without this forum because there is know one else to turn to.
    thank you everyone.

    there has been no upset at the moment but every so often things get taken out of context and did not want any of the new ones to get upset by posts that might not read as the poster thought it would.
    but it good to have a large verity of posts to keep out brains active val

    Well said, Val...

    I think it's worth bearing in mind that the interpretation of anything posted on here depends on the mood of the person typing it as well as the mood of the person READING it....

    Yes Its so easy to be misunderstood when typing and not face to face.
    A certain person said something and I took slight offence {nothing much} at it and replied and as soon as I had hit the send button I regretted it and had my hand on the phone to ring this person and apologise when I got a call apologising to me :lol::lol::lol::lol:
    If you genuinely think someone is having a go at you you should PM them ...I would like them to PM me if I said something because it was probably by accident......Foot in mouth disease :lol::lol: Put brain into gear beafore opening gob :lol::lol: I know i should take muy own advice

    Love

    I think you're quite right Val, but I'd want to add that, should something get out of hand (as you put it) then all members of the forum should feel able to contact the moderators and advise them of aspects of the forum which concern them.

    The red triangle, PMs and emails are all available and are there to be used when other avenues haven't worked.

    I think it's an important part of the forum that we can ask for help when what we've done to solve a problem hasn't worked.

    Which 3 threads are these? I haven't seen any where posters have threatened to leave! One poster is having a short break, what are the others?
