    is it because Meniere's has made us sad and unfun? I think so.

    I think it is because so many of the members have found there way out of the hell of menieres. They are busy living life. I post now and then but I am retired so I have the time to live life and post :)

    Personally speaking, I haven't contributed to the forum for a number of weeks simply because I've been exceptionally busy, abroad, & pushed, pulled, squeezed between, & stretched over innumerable time zones.

    The weight Meniere's places on our shoulders, to one degree or another subject to symptom severity, & how our individual personality traits respond to these stressors will be a factor, no doubt. However to explore social behaviour—the social tendencies, motivation, interactions, contributions, or lack thereof between complicated bipedal primates, such as ourselves, you will, more often than not, require a multivariate analysis, rather than a univariate analysis; the influence of Meniere’s alone.

    In addition to, for instance, consider another component of this multivariate equation—the component of user numbers, in itself, minus the exploration of user psychology, personality type, interests, sociopolitical position & preference, age, sex, or any element of illness & the possible influence illness plays upon social behaviour.

    For example, if we were to decrease & limit the total number of facebook users, randomly, to roughly 0.2% of the human population—which is to represent the percentage of people suffering from Meniere’s in the United States of America, last I checked—then further subtract from that number to reflect the percentage of people inclined to socialise online, I would predict the activity found on said social media website would either be less than, or roughly mirror the activity found here, on .org, within the more so social limb of the forum ‘Your Front Porch’.

    Granting we are a very small number of individuals thrown & somewhat splattered together, at random, upon a foreign canvas no less—i.e. the internet, from an evolutionary point of view—I think we make a pretty good job of it.

    I was thinking about that, too. I am doing much better, back to living my normal life. For how long is anybody's guess. But I am still interested in hearing what everyone has to say and maybe I can learn something or offer someone some insight.

    Unfun [unph-un] sounds like a material. A fabric of sorts.

    "Oh, wow. What's this?

    It's unfun. It's Swedish.

    It's lovely, & wonderfully soft!"

    Sometimes I feel there is nothing valuable I could contribute. That’s why I feel the rating icons under each posts are very useful. I often use them to respond to posts.
