well first of all i joined this group to learn and meet others on
the buddhist path if you will. i was just wondering where everyone
was. just for your info..i do belong to two other buddhist groups
and they have posts everyday and i also have my own support group
for fibromyalgia and there are plenty of posts all the time there.
we had over 600 last mo. so, when i didn't see any posts for a few
days i was wondering out of compassion where every one was...i don't
meet any need by readig the post.i truly enjoy reading them and
as for any obstical....i have a family to take care of and not a
whole lot of time just for me...mostly at night after i go to bed.
if i were to be living by myself i would be commited more than i can
be now...i do all i can at the present time. i am not worried about
it at all. namaste, nancy
