    Default Oldie?/NEW again-Spiney

    Hi all
    I was part of the site back in early 2000. That right? Hmmmn....Guess so. Anyway, back then, I used the name Still Smiling or Still.Smiling (which is still here, I'm just not savvy enough to figure out how to use it again.)
    Thanks to everyone, you got me through some very, very tough times, surgeries, paralysis,etc.

    While I'm doing pretty well these days, my husband is not, so I'm here for him. I hope I can find the help he needs....

    I have been keeping things inside for a long time now - figured when I went to buy a dryer and just about broke down, it was time to look up some old and very good friends....

    Welcome back Lynnie :)

    I'm sorry for the circumstances that have brought you back, but I am glad to know that you are ok :) Check your pms.
    Question: Why can't I post links or pictures?
    Question: Why can't I have a signature, avatar, or profile picture?
    Question: What's wrong with my account?

    Answer: You are in the "registered users" user group. This group is very limited in what it can do. This will annoy spammers to no end Just keep posting once you have been registered for 30 days and have made 11 posts your account will be "unlocked".

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people who's posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    Easy peasy and will lower your blood pressure. One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Ok Lynnie I have "fixed" your account. You should have received an email asking you to reset your password for still.smiling in your new email address :)

    Hi Lynnie, this site was a life savior for me as well. I was on BrainTalk in the early 2002-2003. I felt so alone, then and one night I ran across BrainTalk the people in the chat that night saved me, trully. I had totally given up. I stayed up till early morning with the people on that night. I laid down for a couple of hours and was up by 9am. It was the first time in about 15 years that (I don't really know to describe this) that mentally I felt like I was in my body. I called everyone in my family and told them that your daughter is here today, your mother is here today, your sister is here today, my best friend and my husband your wife is here today. I told him I don't care haw many pain pills I have to take today I want to enjoy being me. My sister and friend came over we played ping pong and ate dinner. Had a wonderful day. I was gone again the next day and I have not been back since. I have started crying now. I would love to be me all of the time. Mentally I don't understand why it is this way. But let me get back to welcome back. And if I can be of help just have to let me know.
