Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Congratulations KrisV!

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Well, I have to say Kris that was why I always tack the V on the end of my name. I realized right off in the beginning that it would be confusing. It's nice to find someone who spells it the same as me.

Also I am super excited to do this. Thank you all for having faith in me. And this has become the best support system all the way around. I love you all!

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Referring to "our KrisV" and "Krisj" should not be a problem for us.  We are so fortunate to have you both.

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

lol Marion! I know I've been confused a few times when someone has written about "Kris" and I've said... "No, I didn't... Oh, yeah... KrisV!!"

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

You have a point, Kris and Gavin. Would you like to use a nickname instead?  Or, do you have any other thoughts?  Rick will be able to make the changes quickly.

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Congratulations!

I never noticed that you were not designated "moderator" - your posts are always helpful and hopeful.

I think I have a good idea on your change in pay grade.  But money is not the only way that score is kept.

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

We wish, dear Duke, to be able to pay our moderators for all the do for us and for the patient community at large.  But, this foundation is built on volunteerism and I don't expect this to change, ever.

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

And I am good for a name change.....I've answered to almost everything so far in my life....the only two I have problems with is: Kristina which is my full name and I just am not a Kristina and Krissie which only my 95 year old Grandma got to call me.

I am sure my kids have some names for me wink

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Sorry, Marion.  I understand volunteerism - there are some jobs you can't pay people to do - this is not exactly an Ask Ann Landers forum.  My point was that money is not the object - the karma experienced as a result is worth infinitely more than any possible monetary gain.

In any case, remember Kris to apply moderation to yourself and not spread yourself too thinly.

Re: CONGRATULATIONS KRISV

Chuck -
Oh, I know to be careful....I took a couple of weeks off after Christmas because of everything that is going on. In all reality this a great outlet for me. It gives me a chance to do what I love best which is teach and help others navigate health issues. I can also vent my frustrations here when I need to.

I will be careful though.
