Hey Gang, here is my two cents worth.
Life is what you and I make it..except when the beast is in control.
Sometimes life is what others help you make it. Drummer was the first person
to offer me help and advice when I found CH.com. His encouragement was followed by
information and encouragement from many others of you. Thanks to all of you.
This site is a terrific help to people seeking support, information and a forum of persons assumed to have a
common disease and mutual goals.
Beyond that, Ch.Com has, not unlike many other gathering places the potential for the development of social interaction.
If communities didn't have rules and codes and structure, chaos would ensue. Ch.com has some rules.
Primarily the site is for the benefit of ch sufferers and supporters. It is expressly not a commercial entity for
profiteering by those seeking to benefit from the ravages of these ha's.
As communities develop, enforcement of rules becomes the responsibility of the members of the
community. Enforcement should only be viewed as threatening by those whom seek to break the rules or
bend the community standards to their desires.
So all I want to say is thanks to those of you here to help! Good luck to those of you here to find
help and community with fellow sufferers or supporters (I believe you will find both here). And to those of you with
other motives, maybe you ought to spend some time evaluating the benefit of your agenda/participation.
My personal rule (that means it is my rule and does not apply to others) opinions I put out in public
are available for comment, criticism and rebuttal. You should infer that it is okay to flame me on the board or via email.
