    Sorry Błue Eyes just saw the comment on my blog. I had the cramps in my legs for about 4 months. I'm a teacher and I think being up on my feet a lot aggravated them. Drinking pickle juice in tonic water helped.

    Hi Blue Eyes,
    Didn't know if you'd see it on the thread but I talked to Dalvin tonight on facebook. He is a little down with the passing of Elaine. Otherwise, he claims he is doing ok. I told him you had been concerned. He said he was also getting irritated with some of the wannabees so he has reframed from posting alot. Kim

    hey back, I had a really terse reply from David saying he won't tell anyone how many messages are needed before PM kicks in ... All I can say is that you should post replies in various threads in the main forum as I have seen that others get PM rights earlier than you have, but they are active over the forum and that may be the key.
    Then each day just check your CP to see if any PM options appear.
    Just logging in and not really participating won't do it me thinks.
    Wish I could do something to help!

    Well, I come to it naturally, but also it's chemically enhanced. :) And I've spent a lot of time feeling guilty that I wasn't doing enough to get better (it started with a stroke) and embarrassed by my failings. Then, I finally started to suspect ALS, and I spent a few months in a panicked depression... I guess I've been through the stages already and now I'm here. It has been almost five years since my first symptom. It also helps that I live in a beautiful, accessible home (thanks mom and dad), have great caregivers (Husband and mom and Brittany, who costs too much, but does more than she is technically allowed to, and we like her), and relatives who support me emotionally and financially. My husband is strong and able to lift and transfer me, so that helps A lot. And pets. :)

    >I have a Canon 6D

    you might get a 50mm f1.4 and shoot 500-1,000 shots with it to get the feel. Also, if too heavy, get a Manfrotto monopod.

    An alternative is to buy a Nikon D40 ($90 on ebay body only and get an 18-200 nikkor zoom, about $450, or 18-70 Nikkor if the 18-200mm is too omuch) ... this is a great light gp everyday shooting kit. I would add an SB 400 flash, if you can. keep the 6D for special shoots. I
    don't do pro shoots anymore, can't travel or hold up the bodies w/o monopod :-(.

    Lynne, try and right a few more posts on the forum - find some threads (not in the off topic section) that you could at least comment something to.
    I see you are in your CP now, hopefully it is allowed, you just need to change some settings!
    In the CP, on the left is Setting and Options. Click that, then click Edit Options.
    If you can find some PM options you may just need to turn some of that on now. Katrina

    Lynne, I reckon you want to join in a few more conversations, your number of posts must be about right to start PM. Go to your CP again and see if you can find an option to turn them on. I have a feeling when mine started working I had to do some CP settings ... thinking of you. Katrina
