We all have our own ways of healing, and our own ways of interacting of the board. I'm not sure what has given you the impression that the prime focus of Pandy's is the chat room, because it certainly isn't! Our focus is creating a healing and comfortable environment for members to reach out to each other for support, whether that be in the chat room in on the board itself. It's more than okay if you aren't interested in chatting and prefer to post on the board. It's okay if you only want to read other people's posts, or if you want to post ten times a day. It's okay if you never, ever want to post or chat on the board! Use this board the way that feels best for you. Some members love the real-time environment of the chat room, while other members, myself included, very rarely use the chat room and prefer the different kind of responses you get when you put a post up instead and members have time to think and formulate a reply to you.
I'm concerned that you feel pushed into using the chat room, because that has never been our intent - if you could be so kind as to point us to where you have felt pressured to use the chat room we'd greatly appreciate it so we can rectify the misunderstanding. If you have any questions about this, or would like any further clarification please do let us know - and keep on reaching out on the board as much as you are comfortable with!
Take gentle care,
