I also am totally addicted to this site! I am on here all the time, at least every few hours(when I am home) I have a note book that I write down all the questions that I see others have , that I can ask my Dr. next week at my pre-op. This site is a blessing and with out it I would not have such a clm feeling and have so much knowledge! Thanks to every one! Linda :

I hear ya sistah's!

This site is so wonderful! I found it about three weeks post-op and have pretty much come here faithfully every day...go through such withdrawals when I'm out of town!

I discovered the chatroom about two months ago...talk about addiction!! If you can't sleep, are a bit depressed, or just want to be entertained...that's the place to go. We get slap happy sometimes too. It's a wonderful learning experience as well. So many of the ladies are so knowledgeable and helpful...very comforting place to be. We've been able to lighten the hearts of some who have come in very depressed, and hopefully have put a smile on their faces by the time they leave.

My dh is almost getting jealous of the time I spend here...been trying to squeeze in when he's not looking! haha...tough to do when this keyboard makes so much noise...need a mute button on this! Other times he comes in my office and will read a bit of the chat...especially if I've been hootin and he'll get a kick out of the replies.

Anyway...just wanted to add my two cents...for whatever it's worth.

I'm SUIEEEE2 in chat...the crazy hog lady!

women supporting women.. wonderful..

I had my kids at home with a mid-wife (all 5). This experience reminds me of much the same thing.

2 yrs. ago, my oldest daughter had her first child at home too. With the same mid-wife that delivered her! We were both so thrilled with the experience. At the birth of my grandson, I was there, she had her bestfriened, her sister, her MIL, and 2 mid-wives. She said she felt so good being surrounded by women, who have shared (or will share) this experience. It made her feel safe and protected. There seem to be a real feeling of the continuance of the life flow process...

The same is happening here. Thanks to all the princesses before us, showing us the way..

Me tooooooo !!

Lord I don't know what I would have done without the support here ! I have my morning coffee w/ Hystersisters and if I can't sleep I sit here and read and read.....I've cried, I've laughed at the posts and I have made some great internet friends too.
I walk in from my pre-ops and want to post in hopes of helping newcomers.....and I have taken a wealth of information from this wonderful site !
I can't say enough about all you sisters willing to share your experiences and for also accepting me when I babble and cry from a stress overload !!!
Monday is my big day to the castle......<deep breath> just wish I had a laptop to be able to respond after they let me out Tues. morning.......even if I have to call a friend to come and type I'll post asap......Tues.....I know I'll need to rest up and watch after myself to heal right......OOOOOps starting to get nervous !!! I better get busy cleaning !!!
I'm starting to worry a little bit....because I'll have no one to be with me after....... oh well I'll sleep alot and my bathroom is close to my bed.....
s dear sisters !
I'll be strong !

Isn't it a wonderful addiction

This site is the best thing to happen to me since I found it. I have gained so much information and support here. I really don't think I could have gotten through this waiting without it. I come online to check my e-mail and always check in to read the new posts. For those who are waiting for their surgery... best of luck and my prayers are with you.

This is so contagious!

Deborah, your post made me !!! Best of luck to you!!!!! I will be looking for your first post after surgery!!

I am also addidicted to this website! I am always here with my first cup of coffee and sometimes even before work. When I get home from work the first thing is shoes off, then go to computer to read more posts!! Toay is Saturday so I am home cleaning the house, but I am jumping on about every half hour (a little obsessive!). I am not evey a pre-op LIW yet, (too scared) but I am learning so much here.

I have never met such wonderful and warm ladies in my life! The chat room is a great place too!! I am so happy I found this website, I know it will take me from here to the O.R. sooner or later!!

Best of luck to all you LIW..remeber to keep posting for we are all waiting to hear that all is well!!! And thanks so much to all the post op ladies who so kindly share their experiences and offer so much support and new friendships!

Happy to be a hyster sister member and hopeful to be a

Gosh, addicted is such a negative word. I'd like to say that I am wonderfully attached. I can't imagine what I would have done before my surgery without all the info and comfort I got from this site. And after, it is a constant source of pleasure, info and a great distraction to the empty hours of recovery. I feel better knowing that I'm not that crazy in that I'm not the only one.
