I'm so surprised to see that this thread has been revised. To those who've just posted, and to those who I didn't thank last time - don23, DawnRenee, Jelson, leaf, molly52, Laurie08, otter, weesa and Deirdre1 - thank you all!  My apologies if I've missed anyone.  

leaf, I chuckled when I read your post. Yes, I remember that; I was angry too, for some reason or another that I can't recall either!  I do recall that when I was new, just like a lot of newbies, I thought that my experience defined what someone else would go through. So that would be what I'd tell someone to expect their experience to be like. I've learned since then!  Still, it took me a while on the board to realize how varied all our experiences are and how we can never predict what it will be like for someone else. This doesn't mean that it's not valuable to share our experiences but I know now to never tell someone what they can expect, because we just never know. Something that was a breeze for me might be terribly difficult for someone else, and something that I had problems with might be easy for another woman. It's interesting how unique each of our experiences are, and yet at the same time how much we go through the same feelings and emotions.

My thanks again to all.  It warms my heart!

I, too, wish to thank Beesie (one of my favorite members), although I have IDC, I always read her posts........she has a way of putting science based medicine into a language that even I can understand.  I admire her patience, knowledge, and continued caring in support of BCO.

Count me in as someone who is grateful to Beesie for her always-thoughtful responses. Plus, always cites her sources! If it weren't for Beesie, encouraging me to ask a set of questions, I probably would have had an unnecessary SNB. (She didn't give me medical advice, but she did lead me to research that helped me initiate a set of conversations that clarified what was at stake.). Everytime I come onto this site, I always look for Beesie's posts. Heartfelt thanks.

I agree 100% Beesie's posts are extremely thoughtful and well-informed. I´m very, very grateful to her for taking the time to respond --and respond carefully -- to questions I had about my reconstruction options. BCO is a wealth of information thanks to members like Beesie!

Thanks for bumping this Otter.

I'm a huge fan of Beesie also, and because of her meticulous research, Binney is collaborating with a great researcher to do a study of the impact of radiation induced brachial plexopathy-without Beesie, it was "dead in the water".

I love your comment about the duck--makes sense for how to craft calm, supportive posts.

So glad this gave me the opportunity to thank you.

Your fan.

Barbara, dsj, pitanga and Kira, thank you all!

Kira, I was so glad to be able to help Binney out.  She's the one who's done all the work over such a long period of time for those who suffer from RIBP. I'm thrilled for her that her efforts have finally led to this piece of research.

 I'm not on this site too often. You were the one who helped me back in 2007-2008 and I will always be grateful...and thankful that you were there. I never saw this 09 thread.  Your research is excellent and helped me to go out and check on things for myself.  THANK YOU.  Phyllis

And another shout out of thanks to Beesie. She is articulate, smart in her writing when peoples emotions have gripped their hearts and make their heads spin.

Beesie, you really are a solid rock of information when so many of us feel like we have been thrown into a pile of quicksand.

God Bless, and thank you.
