Some of the folks on this board have been here a long time, and they kinda know each other (maybe they've even met in person at an OUCH meeting), so naturally they are going to respond more to each other's posts than they are to newbies like me and thee. Human nature and all that, ya know. However, if you offer support to someone who is in need of it, it will be appreciated, whether or not there is a posted response. It's really a give and take thing. I guess I've never asked for help (except once when I was looking for help with my wife's M problem, and I got tons of helpful email), so I've never gotten what you would call "support." However, it has been very helpful just reading others' posts, and I try to give support when I feel that I have something to contribute. Don't worry, you're not blackballed. Hang around, and continue to contribute, but remember that there's a lot of hurting going on, so don't feel slighted if you don't get the attention you think you deserve (something which happens in the best of families). I always try to remember what Confucious said, 'Happy is he that expecteth nothing,' which is a good way to avoid disappointment.
