I am new to Komen and am not sure that my emails are going through, nor can I figure out how to add the details of my case at the bottom.
You'll catch on very soon, I'm sure.
Here's how to add your case details as a signature.
--Look above to the toolbar for the User Control Panel tab. Click on that and then when you see the menu, click on Profile.
--You'll see the window Personal Info which will have another tab to the right labeled Signature and Comment. Click on it, and the window for typing your case details will open right up.
--Type away until you're satisfied you've included everything you want to share.
--Next, scroll down to the box below the window where you check that you want your signature to appear with each posting. You can figure that one out...giggle.
--Scroll down a bit more and be SURE to click on the SAVE button. It'll take a little while for the sig to add on to your postings, but soon you'll be able to see it just as you hoped.
The tab to the left of Sig & Comment that says Avatar is where you can choose a picture if you'd like to add one to your postings. That's kinda cool, especially if you're too lazy like I am to import a nice picture of yourself or something else personal. Have fun with that one!
I am scheduled to begin TC on 2/17/11 and am reading the posts by those who are just starting chemo and feeling less alone. Let me know if this message is coming through...Judy
Message loud and clear, Judy. You're doing just fine here in Komenville. No problemo.
As for the chemo-thingy, hoooooo, boyee! I'm a raw newbie at that waving lots of encouragement to you. I just had my first infusion three days ago, and today is pretty rotten for me. But I know I'll get through it all as will you, largely thanks to the wonderful people here who are so supportive and encouraging. Lean on those who've gone before when you need to and feel free to brag about your good news, too. I sure have!
A hearty welcome to you!
