How should we greet a newbie ?
Call me niggly but I kinda wish we had another way of greeting new members than commiserating their joining our band of ladies. I don't think we should celebrate anyone's bc diagnosis but could we lighten a newbie's load by just saying welcome or howdy or whatever is needed to make them feel comfortable that they have found support and understanding - it's tough enough having the diagnosis and reaching out to total strangers . The warmth and kindness you ladies showed me when I joined meant more than anything to me at the time - it didn't reinforce my sadness but made me feel safe.
