    How to respond

    If I ask a question, & receive an answer or answers, how do I respond to that individual person?

      One way is to simply comment on your original question so your response is in the same thread. The other is to click on their name and write something on their wall.

      I prefer the first method Clyde describes, it keeps the whole conversation in one place.

      I have done both on some occasions. I always like the answer, then usually just comment on they answer. There are times I feel I need to reply on their wall, in addition to my reply, other times I just go directly to the wall. It depends I what I want to say or the mood I'm in that day.

      I usually comment on the same question to maintain the continuity of the thread --- and when I answer a question, I will check back to see if there is a comment or reply intended for me.

      I actually didn't know about replying to the person directly by clicking on their name so I learned something new just by you asking the question.

      As someone who has been on both sides of the "I know how you feel conversation",( having cancer myself now but having had two loved ones die at age 35 of rare cancers for which we still don't have much of a success rate in terms of treatment and having a son who at age 22 had another very rare cancer but who after surgery in 2005 has not had a recurrance) so I do really understand the desire to have people be positive and share the success stories as I struggle with keeping hope up myself. I guess I also do understand that most people are really trying to be understanding and helpful and often just don't know what to say that would be helpful. Mostly I just really appreciate being cared for and knowing that people are concerned for me and pray for me just as I do for so many others. I also really appreciate people who don't deny reality but help me laugh in the face of it and enjoy life as much as I can now.

      Oops, I was replying to two different questions--so I'll copy/paste the second part of my answer into the other question. So much for multi tasking. :)
