Thanks everyone for explaining
Thanks everyone for explaining and suggesting other ways to use the forums. I have been hitting New Post and seeing if people are posting to my thread or others etc. I'm still a little confused but I am managing to see things better today. I guess I will learn as I go. I love the encouragement not just for myself but that I see given to everybody. It really makes this a great place to look for encouragement. You're a great bunch. I also like seeing the personal achievements on the signatures too. It makes me not feel alone in this.
