What do you think about a "People who overcame PF" webpage?

Posted by Mahatmelissama on 10/16/02 at 12:49 (097637)

Something I am toying with and NOT doing until I am about 90% painfree from PF (and this means being able to take my time in Trader Joes and not worry about being in a long check out line) is starting up a webpage for stories of people who OVERCAME PF. There would be no forumn (I ain't up to that) but just stories to read.

I got the idea since I am in Weight Watchers and there are plenty of Lifetime Members who hit their goal webpages. It is inspiring and gives one hope.

I especially will be interested in people like me who have had PF for years (4+ years).

I was thinking then I would beg Scott R to put a link up on his webpage and people could just click and read.

Now, I am just toying with the idea, this means I am not doing it right now. I certainly won't be constructing a page like this until I myself can be on it since I feel that would show some integrity (my own hang up...I know!)

I would just like to hear your feedback.

This page is GREAT and I love it. It is more a place though for people going through the challenges and pain of PF, most of us chronic cases like myself. A seperate place for people who licked PF would be great to go peruse stories at.

It's a good idea Melissa, so good that in fact I suggested it to Scott myself a couple of years ago. He liked it, and started a 'Success and Horror Stories' page, but ditched it after a couple of months. Why don't you try him again? There are quite a few 'success stories' out here - people who have healed, like Carole, myself, Nancy and Nancy....maybe the time has come to re-institute it.

But it should be just a 'Success Stories' page. We have enough of the horror on all the other pages, IMHO.

mahat, if scott doesn't want to stick with one of these on his site (it's come up a couple of times, and it never becomes a going thing), i hope you'll do it. people who come here are dying for success stories, naturally, and they're hard (probably impossible) to dig out if someone is just arriving at this site. i don't really consider myself 'recovered,' but much better (got a life!), and would like to contribute to your page.

Melissa, Scott reads the Social board intermittently, and may not see this. Try again on the Heelspurs.com board.

And keep trying. There are quite a few of us here now who would contribute to a Success Stories page, people who haven't tailed off once better, and it could, as Nancy says, be a great help to newcomers.
