How do you make an introduction that's not boring.
My name is Susanne and I found this site only a few days ago. (OK, that is boring)
I only put a short "Hi" in the members forum and got ever so lovely responses very quickly. I also offered to write a blog for you.
When my husband became ill I set up a FB page to keep our friends informed, instead of having to call or email everyone separately. Yes, I'm lazy. Very soon I started writing longer pieces, and I realised quickly how helpful this was. The support I got in the comments from our friends, most of whom live quite far away, was immense and became a lifeline. But I also noticed writing things down helped me to cope better.
