thinking on it and it really bothers me so I shall put it down with the rest of my crap. I love BT, I truly miss it. It has become a place with only three real active forums that have managed to gather up all the other forums and just kind of included them in their groups. Chit chat, emotional support, exercise, caregiver support and so many others have rolled themselves up into two or three forums and now the other forums rarely get used. If someone were to come here they would see that the only people here have MS, SPS and maybe one or two other things. Obviously the other forums would get used if people would spread out. Maybe it is only MS or SPS users left but the threads are about such a variety of things that if people would spread out then BT would have more forums being used. More for visitors to see. I already tried to spread the word years ago but no one listened, no one cared, they had their own safety net and seem afraid to go outside the box. I think many may have quietly went over to Neurotalk. I have an account there but I have not used it in ages. So, I come here and rant and rave in my own little babbling world because I don't want to let go. I miss everyone, I miss coming here daily and checking in with everybody. We had it going almost like a chat room. So many of us gone.

Kripes now I have gotten myself involved with another possible outreach family. Got word from my son that his friend lives next door to an outdoor dog and they are not feeding him. THey have booted their cat out, dog chain can't even reach dog house, yard is in deplorable conditions. So have people looking into it. Looks like I may be one of them. I have contacted the local pro and given him all the info I have so now I am hoping he will run with it. May be going over there tonight with Brandon. I will be relieved if he tells me no LMAO. I can pass it on.Think I will end here. I could just write all flippin day long lol.

    I understand your love and your frustration about BT. There used to be a ton of people with Cerebral Palsy here for me to share my CP issues with and who helped me understand my condition in a deeper way, and when the forum updated those folks all disappeared which totally sucked and broke my heart. I have tried to get more people to come here too.

    I even gave my therapist the info so she could pass it on to any patients that might be interested but I have no clue if she remembers. she does ask me if I still visit here as she thought it was a great place for me to come. I told her I am coming here and writing and she thinks it is a good idea. She doesn't know it is like Seinfeld, a lot about nothing, lolol. There use to be a huge variety and different forums got used. I see posts all the time that would be useful in a different forum and attract others to post there. oh well it is what it is. USe to be more enthusiasm about spreading it around and attracting new posters.

    I guess all we can do is keep sharing and posting the forum. I plan to stay here regardless. Good idea telling your therapist.
