    There's a number of new members around... and on a thread over at the Watercooler, there's talk about people not knowing "this" or "that" about this forum... like the calendar.

    This thread isn't intended to be comprehensive at all - the creators of this forum have all sorts of hidden gems for us to find... but for those of you who haven't found the Watercooler yet: its the place where we can let our virtual hair down, and talk about "other stuff". Of course, lots of it ends up with a difficult child slant to it - but sometimes not.

    Here's some interesting recent examples...

    We've been following Janet's medications adjustments...

    Helping MidWestMom with a doggie issue...

    Telling bad jokes... (most of which you have to be "one of us" to understand), like this one:

    And asking stupid questions, like this one:

    If you need a "Break", come join us sometime over by the Watercooler... (direct link)

    Great idea insane, I actually didn't look at the watercooler for a few days after I joined, then I did once I had read all the old threads I wanted to in gen. and sp. ed. and early childhood/teen since they are a little more removed from my life right now.....

    AND now, I wish I would have looked there the first day. Really has been very very therapeutic. Love a place to just talk to people who can realate. Fact is, the difficult child journey affects everything and colors everything. So it is wonderful to just shoot the breeze with folks who get it.

    When I first joined, I found it all rather quickly only because when I come to this site, I just click the "What's New" button. Still do. This way I don't have to go to each individual forum.

    I start there too, but things move so quickly on this board I found I was missing things so then I go to the other forums and check .... there are always posts I miss if I dont do that.
