I haven't read all the pages of this thread (52 pages, can you blame me?), but I hope everyone who feels invisible has realised that they aren't.
I've been here for 6+ years and definately felt invisible at times. But I've also realised that people who notice you might not always let you know they notice you.

Don't let 'em scare ya! I often state my opinion, as controversial as it may be, and then just don't go back into the thread, even though I know loads of people will have quoted me and ripped my post apart....
I think in my whole time here at BH I've only been involved in one really serious debate but it was something that is very important to me. I think that one time I wasn't invisible at all. But after the debate was settled, I went back to my sarcasm cave and just came out to post about random things.
Thanks to those who PMd me and I hope that my rambling reply did not scare you.
I got a lovely random mail from a hubber! It was inspired by some thread I'm
Not sure if it's this one but it was lovely to get the email!!!
This is turning out to be such a warm fuzzy thread BerylsMum!!!
Yep I'm invisible, I doubt anyone would even recognize me here but that's ok, I still enjoy coming in here to have a read and occasionally post
Don't be scared to express your opinion on here. There will always be people who disagree with what you say and if you're like me, you'll get the regular ones who like to quote you because they think everything you say is aimed at them There are people on here who I've noticed tend to have a sarcastic dig at what others have to say. It doesn't matter; kill 'em with kindness and stay true to yourself. I have people who I "like" yet have had completely different views on certain things: that's OK, too.. no one is going to love everything about me and I might not like what someone says in one thread but still enjoy some banter with them in another. Doesn't mean anything. We are all diverse! You sound sensitive, like me! It's hard having that personality trait on a forum like this, but you gotta learn to block certain people off. I'll always reach out and be friendly, but if there's nothing you can do about other people if they don't like what you've said in the past. Oh well, their bad
I'm here for a laugh and it makes me feel good. I don't come on to fight. If someone tries to "put you back in your box" ignore it, hun Say what you gotta say and move on
I actually like the stong minded and opinionated people on this forum, but I've said it beofre, there's a difference between having an opinion compared to being rude and nasty, which happens sometimes. There was this one user who was on here about a month ago, she was incredibally nasty to a particular OP (beyond just disagreeing, she was clearly in it for the kicks) in a thread, the thread was eventually closed because of it and in fact, I haven't seen her around since, so most people on here will support you and the bullying types are stamped out pretty quick.

Yes I am invisible on here I think. I post when I have something to contribute but found it quite disheartening that with all the woman and experience on here a question I asked re laparoscopy and d&c I got maybe 2 replies. I felt as alone as anything but I still keep coming back as I'd like to think it was nothing personal and that it just got missed.
