    Default New Forum section idea

    I think a forum section about relationships might be a good idea...I know personally lupus effects my relationships both romantically and family wise as well. just a thought.

    Also a venting forum is helpful there once was a site I belonged to years ago and they had one and it was great sometimes you just need to vent about lupus or other stuff
    Blessings and Love,

    Hi There! I think the relationship thing is a good idea. The first thing I would like to know is if other members feel that this kind of thread would be beneficial to them. Come on guys and gals... opinions please!

    As for the venting section, that is what Laurie's lounge is there for. It is for anything you want to talk about. Lupus or non Lupus related.

    Thanks for the idea!

    i noticed no-one has commented........

    i have a fear it could be mis understood.
    i am happy for it to happen, but with guidelines.

    now it is up to you other people.....
    add your opinions please.

    I know we use Laurie Lounge to talk about our relationships. Maybe we do need a specific section for that. The lounge has been doing a great job so far but if others think we should be more specific, I wouldn't be against it. I know I've spent way too much time in the lounge bemoaning my relationships with my family and I do thank you all for your support!

    I haven't commented here because I have a generally supportive family (kids live in other states, thank goodness) and a very supportive hubby. My biggest complaint about him lately is that he's so deep in his research, he never comes up for air.
    I do support the idea of a new thread for it, though. It might be comforting to a newbie who is having family relationship problems to immediately see where to go for the threads about the subject.
    Just my two cents!
    Hugs,
    Marla

    I support the idea of a relationship thread. I think Marla is exactly right about it being helpful for newbies.
    For many people one of the most difficult aspects of Lupus is their relationship with family and friends.

    I also see a good use in some kind of venting forum... I think lupus can effect us both physically and mentally, and sometimes we just need to vent and get a cyber **hug** to know people understand. Something like - Emotions, Feelings and Thoughts

    Threads that could fit into that...

    • I can't stand it anymore.
    • "Stupid lupus flair".
    • A "blleeeh" day
    • I feel so sick and tired and mentally worn out.
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Scared
    • Lonely
    • lupus makes me feel sad.
    • lupus makes me feel anger.. etc
    • Doctor rants (frustration about treatment).
