What I love about Apnea Board

While I am in the US, I don't know how healthcare works in other countries so it is awesome that other countries are represented here to help each other. We all have one thing in common and come together to help each other. where we live, the color of our skin, our accents, doesn't change that. Great forum

All I want to say is every time I read a comment the first thing I look at is where you live. I am loving reading all the wonderful places you live in, places I have only read about or seen in the movies or on TV.

I agree Gabby, this is a lot of fun getting to know others nationally and internationally. This forum offers refreshing humanity among us all. I often read posts from Australia and imagine your accents as I read your words. I read posts from ya'll in the Southern US and hear your southern accents in my mind. I read posts from our Canadian neighbors and think of the parts of Canada I have visited. I have been to Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, Caribbean and a lot of the US. Still some states I have yet to get to. This is a great community and proud to be a part of it!

I am so sorry I forgot to mention the Canadians, British and Nederlanders and anyone else I may have missed, please forgive me.
My main point was because as I said I have never had the pleasure of meeting many Americans.

I think it is a fantastic Forum. I have only ever ventured into a few over the years but never felt the desire to hang around.
When I was first looking for information on Sleep Apnea I was mostly looking for something in Australia but could not find anything that came close to this. At first I thought, I don't want to go on that forum because they are all Americans but then I thought well that's stupid, we are all the same and we all have the same problem, it doesn't matter what part of the world we live in. I don't mind telling you I was shy, it was like walking in to a room full of strangers with no clothes on.
But right from my first question you all made me so welcome, and now I am so sorry to tell you, you are stuck with me.

Well, Gabby, you are now an important part of this board as well.

For me it is a little different -- I have been participating in this type of online forum or similar mailing lists for at least 30 years. (Even before the public Internet and AOL, even before CompuServe).

Who even remembers "The Source" or local dial-up BBS systems?

I am not just getting old, but also old in "computer years".

The first thing I do on any hard subject or serious matter is Google for a forum like this one.

This was the 3rd forum I tried and now the one where most of my attention is focused. It's the got the combination of the best people and high information density.

There are two others I frequent, one is sponsored by Vendor #1 and the other is hosted by the youtube CPAP reviewer TheLankyLefty27 (aka Jason.)

Both are useful but you people keep drawing me back here.
Sweet Dreams,

Hi Jim,
It was seeing your quote 'Wild and wonderful West Virginia' that prompted me to use the quote about where I live 'Beautiful one day, perfect the next', it was an advertising slogan our region used a few years ago.
I just love how I can be reading from someone in West Virginia and the next minute it can be from someone in New York City.

I'm like you and the rest of us, I think it's great we all come together from different parts of the world searching for the same common goal, A good nights sleep!
Sleep Tight...

Maybe I shall venture forth and dip my toes in some other ones, now that I have the feeling for them. I am sure I won't find another like this one though.
I also looked at a couple of other sleep apnea forums right at the beginning but they didn't seem to do it for me.
This one seemed to offer it all, up to date information, someone always available to talk to and of course friendliness.
Sorry I also forgot an important one, Support! What more could you ask for?

At the beginning I looked at one or two others but the format was difficult to maneuver around and read the posts. If it takes too much effort to get info then I look elsewhere
