I'm thankful for this forum. Wishing everyone a peaceful, calm, less painful day with the one's you love and are thankful for.
Thank you @rwinney. A beautiful and sensitive message. Hug someone today. And give yourself some love and compassion. Chris
Happy Thanksgiving to you also Rachel @rwinney. Love your decorations. May your day be blessed with family, friends and great food. Psst…Chris @artscaping — Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Hoping you didn't have to deal with the snow like we did…fortunately we only received about 5 to 6" of that heavy wet stuff. Just came in from doing some minor fixit repair work on my snowblower's chute so I'll be ready for the next round.
Thank you @rwinney! I am so grateful for this forum, too. My heartfelt wishes to everyone for a joyful Thanksgiving. 😃
@rwinney Hi there, Rachel! You have a lovely Thanksgiving as well. I love your picture, but mostly, I love your kind heart. You are so brave, investigative, and spirited. My heart goes out to you with love and compassion. Keep pursuing, Ms. Rachel….. God bless, Lori Renee

@rwinney Happiest of Thanksgivings to you as well!!
Hey there @johnbishop. Thanks for the good wishes, John. We had dinner with Amy (MFR Amy) and her family….18 of the 37 came. Wow. So snowblower lost a shear pin when it picked up some packing tape in the snow. Guess what…they are back ordered.
Just waiting for a good chuckle from you. Chris
I found your reply to my genital concern and was pleased to see the research you found linking it to SFN. It's just another maddening symptom of SFN. I wondered if it was connected to SFN because I saw 5 different ophthalmologists, some several times, with questions about my vision going in and out of focus like someone flipping a light switch. I was told it was only dry eye and that I should use eye drops. I did but they did not help. This genital condition has the same on-off aspect to it. Thanks to you and this board I am at least getting some information about what's going on with my body.
I use Comcast Xfinity email. I learned last week that my Mayo Connect emails have been going to my Spam folder. So far, Xfinity tech support has not been able to fix the problem. Colleen, the Director of Mayo Connect has been helping me with the issue. I write this wondering if anyone else if having this problem. I also write this to let people like John know that I was not being ungrateful for their efforts in digging up research that applies to my situation(s). I am writing to thank others who may have responded to earlier inquiries/comments I've made in the past which I thought were not posted or were not found interesting by others. Anyway, here's a big belated thanks for all of the kind, caring and hardworking people on this site.
@jager5210 I have had this email problem for a while. I have given up on correcting it and just go to my spam folder every day. I do need to wait for it to download into my spam folder. Connect is not the only thing showing in spam.
Hi @jager5210 and @johnhans, my Internet service provider switched to a new email system that uses strong spam mail appliance and it was preventing a lot of my Connect emails from even reaching my inbox or the spam folder in my email program. It just plain blocked the emails. The good thing is that after I realized what was going on the customer has the ability to log into the spam appliance and see all of the emails that were blocked and then release them into their inbox and add the sender to a friends list so that it's not blocked in the future. I also have a email filter setup to move Connect emails to a specific Connect folder in my email program as soon as they are received. There is a good discussion and tips on doing this that you may want to read through and see if it helps you.

@jager5210 thank you for the kind words! Hoping you find some answers and some relief from the pain and symptoms.
@johnbishop unfortunately my cell phone does not include the parts necessary to do that. It is a modified operating system that eliminates parts of the programming to make things simpler for us old folks. But then it makes it impossible to handle problems out of the every day ordinary.
