Is there a need for a Chronic Hypertention forum?

Postby mamc2003 » Thu Aug 04, 2005 03:55 pm

I was just wondering if there was a reason why not to have a CHT forum. Is there just not a big enough need for it? Or would people who have nothing to do with PE end up posting on it?

I thought maybe it would be a good idea for those who were thinking of getting pg and had chronic hypertension, or maybe, for some of us, like me, who ended up with CHT after a PE pregnancy.

I understand if this has already been discussed and decided upon, but just thought I would throw it out there, in case it was a good idea.

Oh, and Ileana, I got my 'puter fixed...Thanks so much for helping me[:D]

Mandy,

I'm glad it's all resolved!

We do have an underlying disorders forum that is the place for us chronic hypertensives... I think CHT is more common on the Forum than other underlying diseases, so it might make sense to create a separate forum. I'll let the Forum heads decide on this one.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Ileana,

I posted once in the Underlying Disorders forum and then felt silly when I realized that it was supposed to be Pregnant w/ an underlying disorder, so I haven't posted there again. Although, I will say that I was not made to feel silly, I just did:)

If you need a moderator, I'd be happy to be one for the CHT forum. Even though I don't have a home computer(hopefully, it will be fixed soon), I'm on here at least an hour or so each day and then at least once on the weekends.

I'm really just the techie behind the website and Forum. I do not appoint moderators nor decide Forum content.

Laura is the person to go to for this kind of issues.

Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know that. Maybe Laura will see this post then and let me know if she'd like me to help.

Mandy, thanks so much for the suggestion and the offer! I didn't realize that people felt that way about Pregnant with Underlying Disorders- perhaps we do need to broaden the scope of it a bit- I'll ask Anne about it.

It is also good to know that you're interested in moderating; we recruit new moderators twice a year unless there's a specific need. I need to check, but I think the next time for new mods is in December.

Thanks again!

I'll second the fact that i feel funny posting in "underlying disorders" about my CHTN.

Did anything become of this thread??? I would still be interested in moderating if a seperate forum was made for chronic HTN.

Yes, Sabrina...Because of this discussion and suggestion, it was decided to switch "Pregnant with Underlying Disorders" to the "Underlying Disorders" forum so as not to exclude concerns in times outside of pregnancy. Thank you for the offer!
