Choose your user name with care
First, a disclaimer. I tend to guard my personal information more than most people, so I may be more sensitive to the issue than those who freely use face-place and other public sites.
CPNhelp.org is not a private website. Anyone can read here without signing up. Those who post here need to be aware that anything they post here will be readily accessible on the internet. Once you post your real name, or use your real name as your user-name, it will forever be linked to you. If a prospective employer does a search of your name, they will find out every detail of your medical circumstances, treatment, highs and lows, specifics about your personal life, etc. Even if you edit it, it will always be available in internet archives, which can be located fairly easily.
But for those of you who do not want friends, family, employers, employees, bankers, insurers, or whoever, to know your every sneeze and setback, your daily doses of medication, your rants and raves, etc., please choose your user-name on the site carefully.
