Sharmae.....I hope you did not feel that I didn't appreciate all that you do. The information you would find was always wonderful to learn and to use to help understand what goes on. I just don't want you to feel that you HAVE to do it, only if you WANT to do it. Like I said I understand that your time is important to you and that it does take a lot of time to do research. I may not have any suggestions as to WHAT I want to know right now but I have to say that when you post things I find that the information you find is something of interest to me. I have learned about myself in about 90% of what you post and learned about what others have in the other 10% so either way I learn good information.

Sharmae, I am VERY interested in learning about natural alternatives to western medicine. It is why I joined this team. I wanted to learn from you and everyone on the team. I'm not sure I understand what is going on here but please know that I appreciate your research and that it has helped me clarify things for myself. Having an autoimmune disease (for me) sometimes feels like I am in a little boat without any oars on a very big sea. My Doctors frequently can't answer my questions so I have to figure this out on my own. You help me feel... not so alone. Thank you. I hope you will continue to share what you find. It means a lot to me...

Dear Members:

I changed the team description, I deleted learning about natural alternatives. It appears most members ARE NOT interested in this.

When I became team leader it was my hope to be able to present natural alternatives to team members, because in my heart as well as my mind, I know the consequences of many of the medicines. No know can get better until the root of the problem is discovered, most medicines are band aids, they do NOT help one to get better, instead, they are a short-term help. Now I know that this is only MY desire, no one else has this desire.

I am not certain what I am going to do now. However, I will let you know soon.

SharMae

Thank you Angel1066! Sometimes we know what we are saying plus meaning, the other person may take it another way. So it is always best to ask questions, get clarification and not hold onto a wrong interpretation. Thank you for clarification and responding so quickly. Enjoy your busy day and take some time to smell the roses!!

I thought I had given you some positive comments. I do like the off- Spark medical sites you pointed out, many of which I did not know. Did not mean to imply anyone was forcing me to read, just noting that a lot is posted. It amazes me that you find the time to research so much. I wish I had time for more, but cannot keep up, even just reading, let alone searching them out. Don't read negativity into that, it is just a fact. You cannot please everybody all the time, nor should you need to. Post what interests you. You did ask for feedback.

My point really was to let you know that I don't think you should bear the responsibility of doing all the research that you do. Your health and welfare matter to me and there is a lot of information available to anyone of us who looks for it here. There are several of us who are experienced researchers, users, holistic and alternate practitioners who can and should contribute. What you have done and do is very valuable and appreciated. emoticon

Angel1066, I too have a life, it is very busy, most likely many members do also. My work schedule is 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. I am confused why the comment of not being able to keep up with all the posts. The topics are YOUR choice to look at or not, as requested they are posted under Forums. No one has been forced to look at them.

You have made your dislikes very clear, what do you like? And, do you have any positive comments?

I READ THE ARTICLES and sometimes watch the videos, when I have time. I do have a life, so don't always get all done, but I find it useful to know about the full range of autoimmune disorders, and have linked several minor irritanting conditions I've had for years to my RA this way, plus learned about other dangers to watch out for. You must be spending an enormous amount of your own life on all this researching, however, certainly more than is necessary for me. I can't keep up with all you post.
Games to me are a complete waste of time, tho fun for those who like them. I don't do challenges, being a bit contrary about competition.

What I am reading as well as hearing is the posting aren't that important and you'd rather have games and challenges. How does this tie in with what our team is about? I am confused--the explanation of our team says: Here you will learn about autoimmune conditions and find natural alternatives to western medicine. You will find positive, support and encouragement to live a richer life with autoimmune conditions.

Right now I cannot make a response.

I agree with everyone else. I do enjoy all the things you have posted, but please don't stress over posting things for us. You are a great team leader and I always know I can come to you if I have a question or need support. Thank you for all you do for this team.

Sharmae, please don't knock yourself out researching for us. I suggest that when anyone wants to explore a topic that they post it as NEED INFO and we can all kick in with our research. You are a great captain. Maybe finding inspirational messages and issuing interesting challenges would help a lot of us. We're a team and we all pull together. emoticon

Sharmae I have to agree with you. It takes a lot of time to search out these articles and if it is not of interest to anyone it is a waste of your time. And we all know your time is valuable.
If anyone wants to see articles on Natural Health and auto-immune just let me know I will look into it but my time is very valuable to my other team and to me also! Would love to hear from you all!

Dear Members:

For several months I have been posting topics, however, I have no idea if they are subjects you are interested in. So I am asking YOU to give me ideas about topics that you would like information on. Also, I am going to stop the video links--it appears most members prefer the articles to read.

Please understand that I want to post topics of interest to YOU. I posted two topics yesterday concerning imflammation & pain, and how music effects pain...I did these two topics from your chit chat. Once I get some ideas from you, I will post these topics next week. Remember, I will not know what to post unless you give me the information!! If there is no suggestions there cannot be topic ideas to post.
