Hi Kelly!
Yep, thats me. I think people there must be sick of the sight of my hair by now!! But then again, i was obsessed with hair growth after chemo, as i think lots of girls would be. If anyone is interested, i can repost the link to my week-by-week hair growth progress post chemo.

Girls, thanks for the warm welcome. When i was diagnosed back in '05 i couldnt find any aussie forums. So i am glad this one is getting busy! Well, obviously not glad to see any new members... but you know what i mean.

xx

Paula,

Are you the same Paula that posted your hair re-growth after chemo on breastcancer.org?

Me too re overseas board. I used to joke to people that i was addicted to the hER-2 website but now i go for days without checking it. It is also American and they aren't on quite the same wave length.

Roo!!

Silly me I invited you here and I didn't even recognise you! duh!
Then I went back and read that you are Paula.
Sometimes I feel a bit intrusive but I usually PM Aussies to let them know about this site. They can always ignore me but they usually join and enjoy it here.
I think I may have PM'd you twice as I didn't put it in my sent box.

Anyway glad you're here.

Hi Paula, welcome aboard. i'm from Sydney.

I also read the overseas posts but as Nav mentioned, this site is being posted to so often now you run out of time.

i'm afraid that I like the newer posts on top but like Jayem i'm also flexible. majority rules.

Hi Paula, Glad your here! (not BC though obviously.)

Yeah !! join in. Look forward to chatting and having some fun.

Good old Jezza (not OLD Jezza, you know what I mean) she also advised me
about this site. And am really having some fun, and getting loads of support
and information, and making good friends here.

I don't have enough time to check out the US site like I used to, as this one
is really starting to move.

Paula, you can't actually change the order permanently - it's an admin setting.
However, if everyone else wants it that way, I'll change it. :biggrin:

I am a regular on breastcancer.org forum, and jezza, who is a member there as well, was kind enough to let me know about this forum.
Breastcancer.org forum is fantastic, but majority of girls are located in US. Its always good to know there is a good support network closer to home!

a quick question, how do i change a setting so the older messages ALWAYS appear on top? I know i can do it for a specific thread, but how can i change it permanently? :help:
