I have really good news to share. Earlier this morning i was made a group leader to my pain group. This didn't come easy. I am bragging when I say I beat out a Dr. and Professor of a University. I cannot give any more details on this person, or others, but I am just proud to be working with the current 2 Leaders who are amazing. To be recommended above others with Master's degrees and more, I am truly humbled and honored at the same time. Even somewhat speechless.
I'm happy my hard work has paid off. I am happy I'm not doing this solo. I have a pain group that I began, over 200 members, more members than this one has now. I've been referring my members to this group for a bit now. Only those members know that they were referred, I'm not the type that brings myself attention by making it known that I did this. All the time and effort I put into CRPSA. All the seemingly endless hours of research. All the promoting of other well known sites. All the passion.
This group is one of the newer ones at the main site which is much larger. Even Leader's need breaks to take care of themselves. One of the Leaders is having a hard time right now. It left the other to pick up things, some members wanting the current Leaders to step down thinking they could do better themselves. Others applying for the position. I applied for consideration not long after I joined in January. Not being hired didn't stop me from participating or being there. When I joined there was 2 Leaders. No one else had been hired either. There's something special about this place. Ironically I would have never have learned of it had I not been notified for something entirely different. To promote them on my own website. I review all sites I list. This is the first support group that I have joined that I also promote. I am a member of another newer site, but as it's grown.... blah. I get invites to join groups that have absolutely nothing to do with the sites theme, which is a patients advocacy. Not!
I'll be removing myself from that one as soon as I get around to it. It's just not on my priority list.
I suppose I had to be there awhile to prove myself, show my determination, learn from others and teach others... some one is always watching us in life. Even when we don't know it or realize it.
I passed and I couldn't be any happier.
I won't be telling the name of the site, not on this blog, I can't have it come up in search engines along side fuck sites. When the sites are those my Master let me have, that's one thing, when they're not, it's entirely another. It's not my choice or his to give.
I think my email is connected to this blog. If anyone wants to know... just email me.
For those who have other contact information on me... contact me there.
The site isn't limited to what I'm now Leader for... RSD/CRPS. It's consists of support groups from chronic pain to several physical disorders, mental and emotional disorders, seniors disorders, teen disorders, cancer, addiction, hundreds of support areas and hundreds of relevant threads.
Without spam and very well taken care of. There are Leaders in all areas. These are not groups that are neglected.
To C and D... Thank you!
And tomorrow is Marine World...
Until next time...
