Hi folks:

I don't come here as often as I used to. And that is mostly because I've been doing really well the past 5 years and have been out living my life. (I still have some very mild symptoms, but have been able to manage with ongoing treatment with herbs. Fingers crossed it holds!)

Anyway, this site was such a great resource for me since first being diagnosed in 2010. There were some great moderators and other users on here that were such a huge support to me during very dark times. I am very thankful for that.

Some examples of users who helped were Sixgoofykids, TF, Lymetoo, Keebler, etc.

Sadly, I don't see many of these folks active here anymore, aside from Lymetoo (Thank you, Lymetoo!)

Does anyone know what happened to the others above? I know Sixgoofykids and TF were well and assume they are out living their life.

Also, I do know sites like this have far less traffic in recent years as many folks have switched to Facebook groups, etc.

Anyway, just wanted to say I miss those other folks and hope they are well.

Wishing everyone great health and happiness in 2022!

I miss my friends too!!!!

Sixgoofy is still a moderator here. Her husband passed away unexpectedly a few years ago.

She is doing well, but I'm sure her life is very different now.

I'm just a Die Hard!

Thanks Scott and Lymetoo.

Scott, definitely remember you and glad to hear you are doing great. I think Salt/C also got you well as well, correct?

Lymetoo, thanks for the updates. Very sorry to hear about Six's husband. She's such a nice woman.

What happened to Keebler?

I feel the same way. I am back as I am sick again after having struggled with late stage lyme for over 20 years. Facebook is not the same. You can't follow the posts or people. The old group here used to totally support each other and go through their journey together. They offered to take others to doctors and many other things. It's a different world now.

I was wondering about keebler too.
and some others.... but so glad to have TooToo still around!!

I was told when I posted somehting similar that many went to FB.
FB pages are good, but so many newbies and not enough GREAT contributors like we had here 10 years ago.

I stil tell everyone about coming here when I hear they are new to lyme and cos. who knows, things go in circles, right?

[Smile]

Be thankful in all things- even difficult times and sickness and trials - because there is something GOOD to be seen
