Health Anxiety Support's Description
This is a place for health anxiety sufferers who need more support than they are finding in real life. Feel free to vent here; type out your worries for listening ears, without fear!! Anyone can join, but please try to observe the following rules: - No judgement... even if a fear seems totally irrational or involving what you consider a minor issue - No negative anecdotes [My husband's cousin twice-removed had something like that, didn't get it treated in time, and died] - No "helpful" online diagnosing [it could be x (horrible), y (terrible), or z (you don't even want to know)] - No consulting the Google and reporting back here - Limited recommendations of specific medical tests or remedies, whether OTC or prescription or "natural". Please recognize that these recommendations may worsen a person's health anxiety. Also -- there is no such thing as TMI (too much information) here. You can talk about topics you consider embarrassing, gross, anything. Only group members can see posts.
The Literary Hub's Description
A place for wide-ranging readers who want to discuss reading in a (mostly) uncensored environment. As a social group, the guidelines are freer than on the general boards. Please remember & respect the fact that members bring varying perspectives & ideas, some of which may not mesh with your own. Current rules include: -- Follow the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would wish to be treated. Extend grace. Interact civilly. -- No ad hominem attacks. No gossip. -- Respect confidentiality. As this is (currently) a semi-private group, please do not share posts, quotes, or information from members without getting prior approval from that person. -- You don't have to read posts that offend or bother you. Do feel free to post your own thoughts & points of view. This is not meant to be an echo chamber & not everyone has to agree. -- Posters who do not engender thoughtful discussion may be removed from the group.

Crockpot-ers United's Description
Whether we call them crockpots or slow cookers, whether we use them them for soups or desserts, we are united in our loathing of cream of cr*p soup as an ingredient. So, post about your crockpot or slow cooker here. Post your tried and true, or tried and goo recipes. But most of all share your abilities to cook a great meal in an electric device without having to resort to cream of cr*p soup.
