I lost a job because I went to my BOSS one time and asked him where the proper procedure was, to describe what all the fancy ACRONYMS he liked to throw at all of us (his deparment employees) was.

He would go to all the meetings then come back full of all these terms like "PPAP" (Production Parts Approval Process) and expect us to know what he was talking about.

You don't think it might have had anything to do with the very Non Political way in which I asked the question do you ??????????

Tara,

I think this is a good idea. Although I am just one voice.

This is really a thread for the Forum Members to voice their comments and opinions. Should the moderators have something to suggest, I would strongly recommend you communicate with the Administration directly.

Thanks!

I was so happy when I found this forum; seeing as how ADDers tend to keep to themselves and don't have a lot of friends, this forum made me realize I am not alone, I really am not crazy, and no, it isn't just "the way" I do things. I am grateful the support and understanding I have found here, and I don't mind if Administrators yank some threads or ban flame warriors. I, myself, am uncomfortable with conflict. So, keep up the good work.

I like this forum alot too! I found some people really nice and offers me advices and supports when I needed them so badly. I really appreciate them! Thanks kim!

After I knew about this forum, I learnt alot of things associated to ADD. It is not my excuse, but instead I learnt how to cope with the way I react to difficult times. This is a very good support forum! Keep it up

.....but sometimes things get said and I personalize. ouch. However, the varied ideas, opinions and personal experiences provide a great learning experience for me. I am learning to expand my view, to formulate my points/concerns and express them (as rationally and calmly as I can.....not always easy ) Yes! Thank you for providing a place for me to practice my ideas. And I hope that I do not offend anyone.

This is the best website i have found for ADD related issues. Not just for info about it, but also for communicating with others just like me. I don't feel so isolated with this fourm, everyone here is just like me. That is such a great feeling. Its so wonderful to be able to talk to someone/everyone about some of the things i am going through that are add realated. It's like a family here, but a family that understands me!

THANKS ALL

I have been here about a month and a half. I keep coming back every day. I have met some very friendly folk already. I find myself loving almost every thread.

There is so much helpful information here that I need to keep coming back. There is also a great balance here. Humor, knowledge, experience, suggestions, etc. There is a place for me to learn, a place for me to laugh, and places for me to share. I could not ask for a better site.

Thank you for being here. And a special thanks to BIG for fixing my initial login problem

Deb

I wonder if it would rock the forum equilibrium if there was a thread dedicated to polls only.

As a new member, I am:

1. Looking for information
2. Trying to follow certain subjects to understand the point
3. Trying to follow certain posters to understand their points
4. Have a safe place to ask questions and express myself

And, while I, too have started a poll thread, I find it hard to cull through all the polls (easily distracted by curiosity ).

Does anyone else feel that way?
On the other hand, I would never want to infringe on someone's self expression...and maybe we need the polls to be interested enough to keep reading...

Stuck,
You can do a lot with the search feature including searching for "polls" probably. You can search users posts by clicking their name and get a nice little summary with a preview of each post.

I think people like the polls enough that this change won't happen <grin>.

I think it's hard to try and function and express yourself to a group of people. I tend to get even more nervous because I am involved with a prison inmate and am further isolated. "Normal" people have trouble trying to understand the ADHD, because most view it as a kids disease, but when I bring up my fiancee and his current living arrangements I become the social pariah.

I am new to these boards as of a day or two ago. This is only my third post, but I have to admit, I would like to see all the polls moved to their own section. Not for any difficulty in finding certain posts or posters, but rather, I don't wanna feel like I am a frickin lab rat everytime I go to the general forums.

I have come to these forums to look for support and to offer some if I get the chance. I didn't come here so that "someone" can ask me what my favorite food is, because he/she has a theory that ADD'ers eat more fast food than the regular population. And to be honest? The # of polls I see in here makes me question the sincerity of the people in these forums as a whole....
